With all the buzz about Cover Girl’s newest spokesperson earlier this week, I had to do a little write-up on Taylor Swift and make-up giant Cover Girl. Taylor is the newest celebrity to join the ranks of Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Faith Hill, Ellen Degeneres, and Queen Latifah among others as the brand’s new face. Founded in 1909, Cover Girl is known for its fresh, wholesome look and it wears the crown of the first major cosmetic company to sign a black model in 1992. Taylor was only in early elementary school when I started experimenting with make-up (… I’m really not that old…) and although she’d be younger than my kid sister if I had one, she’s been on my radar as one to watch. In a world filled with divas and their crazy demands (J. Lo and her all-white dressing room fetish—white couches, white carpet, white flowers, white candles; Mariah Carey demands 20 humidifiers around her bed, her terrier is chauffered or flown by private jet only, and she will only drink pop through a straw) Taylor is a breath of fresh air with her southern manners and sweet smile. And unlike some of her counterparts, Taylor dresses appropriately for her 20 years whether for the red carpet, in concert, or out and about. Although she experiments with different lengths and fabrics, her look of choice seems to be sequins and colour which exudes her young and fun spirit while her make-up accents her features without being too overbearing. Her look is natural, effortless, and down-to-earth. If Cover Girl is looking to expand their market, looks like they made the fearless choice in picking Taylor Swift to model their new product.
