Fearless, refreshing, and fabulous– it’s safe to say CoverGirl got it right with Janelle Monáe. The beauty brand recently announced Janelle Monáe as the newest CoverGirl. The Grammy-nominated singer spoke with Vogue about her new role. She said,
“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines,” she says. “I’d see Tyra Banks [in the CoverGirl ads] and I’d think, Wow, she’s beautiful. It never looked like she had on too much makeup. There was just something clean and classic about her face.”
Get this y’all Monáe does her own makeup.” I take a minimalist approach to my wardrobe and I do the same with my makeup. I don’t look at [it] as a mask. I don’t overdo it.” Great advice!
What do you think of the ads? I’m sure you love them! Take a look at some of the behind the scene videos from the shoot.
