Days after the mind-blowing Insecure finale, the show’s star and creator Issa Rae took to Instagram to share some major news. Rae has landed her first ever beauty campaign with none other than beauty giant CoverGirl. That's right, Rae is officially the newest CoverGirl, and we couldn't be more excited!

The brand broke the news Tuesday on Instagram sharing a stunning image of Rae captioned, "YES, you better believe it beautiful, the secret is finally out and we couldn't be happier! YOU ARE EVERYTHING and we are so honored to welcome you to the #COVERGIRL family!"

Soon after, Rae also took to Instagram to confirm the exciting news in an emotional post, "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," she wrote.

We can't wait to see the campaign!
