Janelle Monáe Named The New Face of CoverGirl

CoverGirl just announced they’ve named Janelle Monáe as their newest face, Vogue reports. Monáe’s beauty feels very natural, effortless and refreshing so it’s wonderful to see her acknowledged by the corporate beauty industry.

The 26 year-old singer opened up to Vogue about her new role as spokesperson, even sharing the Covergirl products she uses on herself:

“The singer, who does her own makeup for most major performances, has already started experimenting with CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara. “I keep my eyes pretty simple but I like to make [my lashes] a little darker and thicker,” she says. She’s also been dipping into the company’s highly pigmented Lip Perfection line—introduced to her by makeup artist and CoverGirl global creative design director Pat McGrath on the Los Angeles set of her first print campaign two months ago. “She’s not only one of the most talented people in the universe but she’s also one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet,” says Monáe of bonding instantly with McGrath—who provided a quick solution to her mic-swiping lipstick quandary. “She told me to do the whole lip liner thing first so that it stains my mouth and makes the color last,” she says, before adding with a laugh: “Thank you, Pat!”

Monáe looks forward to inspiring women to find their own beauty and strength, saying: “I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers. I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”
