“Easy and natural makeup has always been my favorite kind of beauty. I like to feel and look like myself. Between traveling, producing, acting and being a mom, I like to keep my routine to simple steps that make me feel naturally beautiful,” shared America. “For me, beauty is about loving and accepting myself first and foremost and as a COVERGIRL, I want to share that message; Your uniqueness is what makes you beautiful and your authentic identity is your superpower.

She is intelligent, authentic and fearless and always honors herself, which is exactly what the COVERGIRL brand loves about her,” said Stefano Curti, Chief Brands Officer, Consumer Beauty, at Coty, home to the COVERGIRL brand.
