Natural Hair on The Corner- Janelle Monae is the New Face of Covergirl
Just weeks after naming Pink as a new Covergirl, the cosmetic powerhouse names Janelle Monae as one of their new faces. They couldn’t have made a better choice. Her classic natural beauty compliments her minimal attire and sky high pompadour. Monae tweeted, “I’m strong. I’m Beautiful. I am a Covergirl.
The “Tightrope” singer does her own make up often and prides herself in looking natural with just a hint of boldness. “I take a minimalist approach to my wardrobe and I do the same with my make up. I don’t look at it as a mask. I don’t overdo it. A bold shade of red or pink-something that pops-brings the whole look together.”
In a world of weaves, implants, fake lashes and photoshop, Monae is a breathe of fresh air. I applaud Covergirl and I hope young girls take note that make up should enhance what you have not completely transform you into someone else.
