Our fave is getting her own collection with CoverGirl as the new face of the brand, and we’re already getting dressed to head out the door to cop it. Deets on Issa Rae‘s new Cover Girl gig inside….
Issa CoverGirl! “Insecure” and “Awkward Black Girl” creator Issa Rae was just announced as the new face of CoverGirl cosmetics!
The gorgeous melanin-covered beauty is featured in a new promo shot for the brand, and CoverGirl made the official announcement welcoming her to the family.
Issa posted up a BTS shot saying she’s honored to finally be a part of a brand she’s admired since she was in high school:
Sweet! Issa will be getting her own collection, and joins the ranks of Janelle Monae, Zendaya, Queen Latifah and more.
Her “Insecure” fam is over the moon. Issa’s co-star Yvonne Orji (who plays “Molly”) gushed on the IG saying:
Sweet! Congrats Issa!
BONUS: Ever wondered how everybody on “Insecure” looks so good? It’s the lighting. Because it matters even more where black folks are concerned.
