“I remember being an awkward black girl” – Issa Rae gets emotional on becoming Face of CoverGirl



Creator and star of hit TV series Insecure, Issa Rae has been chosen as the new face of cosmetics brand CoverGirl.

She announced the news on her Instagram with a heartfelt caption expressing how much it meant to her:

I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I’d be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come. Visit @COVERGIRL to learn more #COVERGIRLMADE

Issa is the latest celebrity face of the cosmetics brand, following a lineup of stars including Zendaya, Rihanna, Janelle Monae and much more who have fronted campaigns in previous years.

The brand also confirmed it with a post on their Instagram.

We can’t wait to see what this fabulous collaboration will produce.

Congrats Issa!
