Talented Actress, Platinum-Selling Singer, Dancer and Beauty Inspiration Zendaya Brings Her Signature Swag to COVERGIRL

Zendaya joins the COVERGIRL squad

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zendaya (Zen-DAY-ah) is redefining standards of what it means to be
authentic and ‘do you’ in an often-too-perfectly-curated social media
world. That’s why COVERGIRL,
a brand that has always stood for individuality and rocking your unique
kind of beautiful, has partnered with Zendaya as the fresh new face of
easy, breezy, beautiful COVERGIRL.


“I am so honored to join the company of a roster as celebrated and
diverse as COVERGIRL’s,” says Zendaya. “I can’t wait to share some of my
own beauty tips with fans, and work alongside COVERGIRL to continue
empowering girls and women to celebrate their individuality.”

Evident in her versatile style, Zendaya isn’t afraid to color outside
the lines, whether she’s working on her latest musical collaboration,
trying a new beauty look on the red carpet, or speaking her mind through
the inspiring words she shares with her fans. Her ability to distinctly
stand out is a key reason that so many girls and women look up to her,
not only as a beauty icon, but also as a role model. Zendaya is
redefining #goals for this generation and showing the world what it
means to be a girl boss – smart, in control and unapologetically herself.

“Watching Zendaya’s work and authentic conversation with fans in social
media was truly inspiring to us at COVERGIRL,”
says Esi Eggleston Bracey, Executive Vice President, Global Color
Cosmetics, P&G. “She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes,
and makes no apologies for who she is – we love her energy, confidence,
and willingness to experiment and express herself with makeup. I know
that together, we will do big things and help evolve the perception of
beauty today.”

In true form, Zendaya came to COVERGIRL
with a plan – she wants to empower girls and women alike to embrace
their uniqueness, whether that means trying the latest out-there beauty
trends, or being outspoken about the things that matter to you. The
catch: it’s not about imitating her, it’s about owning your personal
swag and defining what that means to you.

Zendaya’s first ad will launch live during the 58th
Annual GRAMMY Awards
® airing on CBS on Monday, February
15, featuring a new line up of COVERGIRL
products – Plumpify
Mascara by blastPRO
, truNAKED
shadow palette
and liners
and Colorlicious
Oh Sugar Lip Balm
. Then, coming summer 2016, Zendaya will be the
face of COVERGIRL’s cornerstone collection – the iconic line of Clean
products – plus a new mascara.
