Cape Town – It’s true! Issa Rae is the new face of CoverGirl and the first snaps of her campaign look absolutely beautiful!

The Insecure writer/actress announced her happy news on social media on Tuesday.

In a heartfelt post, alongside a behind-the-scenes snap, Issa revealed that it is a dream come true to be part of the CoverGirl family.

She wrote: I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favourite magazines, casually flipping through Cover Girl ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I'd be one. I am SO honoured and SO excited for what’s to come.”

In an interview with Buzzfeed the Golden Globe nominated actress revealed that her first experience with foundation reminded her why she wanted to be a CoverGirl.

She said: “My first experience with makeup was my freshman year of college...

“I just remember not knowing what to do and went to my local drugstore to buy foundation. Didn’t test it out, but was like, ‘This looks like my skin, right?’ and just smeared it like it was lotion.”

Issa added that she showed up to her friend’s house and they immediately helped her remove and reapply.

The 32-year-old said joining the CoverGirl family will enable her to “help other people what works for them”.
