Ukonwa Ojo, SVP COVERGIRL, Coty, said, “In leading the relaunch, we started with the insight that people no longer strive for a singular standard of beauty, but use makeup as a tool for self-expression and personal transformation. COVERGIRL has always been inclusive and is known for pushing the boundaries of what it means to be beautiful, which means we have a responsibility to elevate how we connect and communicate with people. This is bigger than a new campaign or a tagline. We hope to spark a provocative dialogue that shifts cultural assumptions about when, where, how and why people wear makeup.”
The conversation kicks off today, Oct. 10, starting with a long-form film entitled “Made in the Mirror” that features six COVERGIRLs, most of whom were recently announced. They include chef, TV personality and author Ayesha Curry; actress, writer and YouTube sensation Issa Rae; singer and superstar performer Katy Perry; personal trainer Massy Arias; 69-year-old model and dietician Maye Musk; and professional motorcycle racer Shelina Moreda. All boundary-breakers, cultural change-agents and true makeup-lovers, these women accomplish, empower and inspire as strong representatives of the brand’s vision.
COVERGIRL’s multifaceted transformation will touch all areas of the brand, including packaging and product design; in-store experience; a new logo and tagline; and look, tone and feel across all communications, starting with “Made in the Mirror” and continuing to roll-out through the remainder of 2017 and into 2018.
