Major beauty news: Katy Perry is the newest CoverGirl! The “Roar” singer announced the news Wednesday morning to her “KatyCats” on Facebook and Twitter, writing, “BEAUTIFUL news to share w/you all. Today is my 1st day as a COVERGIRL! See what happens when you let the light in?”
Along with her new beauty campaigns, which debut in the spring of 2014, Perry is gearing up to launch her third album, PRISM on October 22nd. “In addition to music, I’ve always considered makeup to be a powerful creative avenue of self-expression,” the singer said in a release. “I’m honored to partner with CoverGirl and share more colors and textures of my approach to beauty to inspire my audience.”
The singer is no stranger to the beauty biz. She’s already released three signature fragrances — Purr, Meow and the new Killer Queen — along with a line of false eyelashes with Eylure. She’s also been the face of hair tools brand ghd. Now she joins fellow CoverGirls Sofia Vergara, Queen Latifah, P!nk, Ellen DeGeneres and Janelle Monae as the face of the beauty brand.
