    Issa Rae Is The New Face Of CoverGirl And We're So Excited You'd Think We Were Getting Paid Too

    She tells BuzzFeed about the first time she wore foundation, and how her friends were like, "Girl, no."

    Guys, Insecure star Issa Rae is the new face of CoverGirl... AND WE'RE LOSING OUR FRIGGIN MIIIIIINDS!!!

    She posted this BTS shot of her CoverGirl campaign on Instagram.

    Rae told BuzzFeed exclusively about the first time she wore the wrong shade of foundation, and how it reminds her why she wants to be a CoverGirl:

    Since then, her makeup skills have evolved. "I’ve taken an interest beyond the basics, considering my features more carefully and realizing I can accentuate them to play up things I love best about myself. The possibilities are endless with makeup!”

    Rae, a self-made YouTube star turned HBO show runner, said, "makeup gives me a certain sense of self, security and confidence. I’m in charge of how I represent myself, whether as an actress or showing different sides of my personality."

    So what's the Hollywood boss' favorite product? Lip gloss! "When I gloss up, it feels like it's time to shine," she said. She believes "there are no rules" when it comes to makeup.

    Issa, GIRL, you are WINNIIIIING, and we ❤️ you so damn much!!!
