Issa Rae is many things... She's an actress, writer, director, producer, web series creator and now this self-dubbed "Awkward Black Girl" is a CoverGirl!!  The "Insecure" creator has joined the ranks of Janelle Monae, Queen Latifah, Zendaya and formerly Rihanna (lets us not forget) as the new face of popular cosmetic brand.

Rae shared with her Instagram followers on Tuesday, September 12th how she felt honored to be one of CoverGirl's latest brand ambassadors.
"I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I'd be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come. Visit @COVERGIRL to learn more #COVERGIRLMADE
In a press release from CoverGirl, Rae went on to divulge:  "My character is ever-evolving, and makeup is a tool to help transform my persona – whether for a role I play in content that I produce, or the different roles I take on in my life."
"Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways. This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others."
Rae's "Insecure" co-star Yvonne Orji excitably wrote on her own Instagram page, "I'm bout to run to every CVS, RITE AID & WALGREENS and just WAIT for Issa Rae's CoverGirl line to DROP! I'm coppin ERRYYY DARN SHADE, you hear me?! I'mo be so ignant at the checkout counter if they ran out and ain't re-stocked."

No specific details have come out about the range of possible products curated by Rae, but I hope to hear more in the foreseeable future.

As I stated before, Issa Rae is many things... but she's Awkward no more! View another shot of Issa Rae as a CoverGirl below.
