Once the ink for a cosmetic deal has dried, it’s official: you’ve made it. British model Jourdan Dunn is basking in the glory of being the new face of Maybelline.
"It is an honor to be a spokesperson for such an iconic brand,” she said. “I am proud to say that I am a Maybelline girl and hopefully I can make people feel the same way I did when I saw the advertisements growing up. The brand imagery is always beautiful and positive. To now be a part of that is a dream come true!"
In addition to her career, Dunn is an active member of Sickle Cell Disease Association of America and has spoken truth to the fashion industry’s need for diversity.
If you follow Dunn on Instagram (@officialjdunn) you know she doesn’t take herself too seriously. The ecstatic model tweeted, “I’m so happy to finally say I’M THE NEWEST FACE OF MAYBELLINE!!!!!” with over a dozen smiley face emojis.
Her first gig for Maybelline will be to promote the brand's Go Extreme mascara. Dunn's print and television ads will debut later this month.
