Two Olympians Take CoverGirl Gold
With the 2012 summer Olympics just around the corner, I guess one could say that strong, sporty olympians are trending. And when something’s trending, it doesn’t take long for the beauty world to take note.
Like CoverGirl cosmetics and their most recent CoverGirl faces… namely two staggering olympian beauties beach volleyball player Jennifer Kessy and boxer Marlen Esparza.
Esparza and Kessy, in addition to preparing for the London-hosted summer games have both been tapped as the newest addition to the CoverGirl model cue, promoting two new limited-edition products — LashBlast Volume Mascara and Outlast All-Day Lipcolor — in both print and TV ads starting this May.
“I have always dreamed of being a CoverGirl,” Kessy recently told People magazine, but “thought [she] was being punked” when the brand initially came a calling. “I remembered all the times I stared at the ads in the magazines, and remembered that CoverGirl always writes the names of the models in their ads. I couldn’t believe my name was going to be next to my picture in a magazine. Best feeling ever!”
And while you don’t often think of sports-enthusiasts as avid makeup wearers, both of these gals admit to wearing, simple makeup on the court and in the ring, with Esparza telling the celebrity mag, “I think if you look good you feel good, and if you feel good then you fight good. I think it will help people see me as a woman and not just a boxer, and also show that CoverGirl recognizes that everyone can symbolize beauty.” Amen.
