I remembered having a conversation about wanting to see darker toned women of color, as the face of Cover Girl with a few of my twitter followers when Paula Patton was announced. We named fabulous women such as Kimberly Elise, Estelle, and Brandy. I guess Cover Girl may have caught wind of our conversation #wishfulthinking.
I have been a fan of Janelle Monae’s style ever since the beginning. While I’ve commented that I’ve wanted to see her do something different with her hair I can’t help but respect a women that stays true to herself. Janelle’s makeup style can be described as naturally sexy. We often see her with nude clean face and bold lips. Just last week the singer Pink was announced as one of the new Cover Girls and now Janelle Monea! I think the brand is really doing a great job with choosing these gorgeous ladies to lead the brand. I can’t wait to see what products they come up with for this up coming season.
