HBO’s Issa Rae named newest CoverGirl

By David Salazar - 09/12/2017

NEW YORK — Golden Globe-nominated actor and “Insecure” creator Issa Rae has been named the newest CoverGirl. The brand announced Rae’s addition to its roster of CoverGirls Tuesday, a few days after the second season finale of “Insecure.”

“My character is ever-evolving, and makeup is a tool to help transform my persona - whether for a role I play in content that I produce, or the different roles I take on in my life,” Rae said. “Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways. This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others.”

CoverGirl said, “With her characteristic wit and charm, unique observations on life and culture, and outspoken but relatable nature, Issa truly embodies the CoverGirl spirit of inclusive self-expression, inspiring people to embrace what makes them unique and confidently represent that to the world.”
