beauty news: two new faces join the CoverGirl family!

have you heard the news??

CoverGirl recently signed two new, gorgeous, and very talented performers to their beauty roster...

i'm beyond thrilled!

the fabulous ladies are P!nk and Janelle Monae!

P!nk, recently wrapped her first print advertising campaign with the brand, debuting in your favorite fall mags, and is fresh off the heels of putting the finished touches on her new album, The Truth About Love. exemplifying what it means to be a true CoverGirl she's got her own individuality and never settles for conforming to a single beauty standard.

"i have a lot to celebrate. i called my new album The Truth About Love, and the truth is that i have my beautiful family and baby girl, my new music, and now my partnership with CoverGirl to love,” said P!nk. “joining a group of women who have always inspired me ~ to laugh out loud, let my guard down, or play around with my beauty look ~ is such an honor."

singer/songwriter, Janelle Monae, is already known for her individual style {including a black-tie wardrobe and striking hairstyle known as a "Monae"}, and was called a "different kind of diva" by Vogue {her debut CoverGirl advertisement can be now be seen in the september 2012 issue}. Monae says she's on a unique mission to encourage women to use all their artistic powers to play, change, and transform.

"i believe it's time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them," said Monae. "one of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. becoming a CoverGirl is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out."

the current roster of CoverGirls include such icons as Sofia Vergara, Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift and Team USA athletes Jennifer Kessy and Marlen Esparza.
