“BEAUTIFUL news to share w/you all. Today is my 1st day as a @COVERGIRL! See what happens when you let the light in? #COVERGIRLKATY,” she tweeted.
CoverGirl said Perry’s passion, playfulness and bold style sensibility is the perfect fit for a brand that “comes ready to roar.’”
Perry’s third album, Prism, releases Oct. 22.
“In addition to music, I’ve always considered makeup to be a powerful creative avenue of self-expression,” Perry said in a statement.
“I’m honored to partner with CoverGirl and share more colors and textures of my approach to beauty to inspire my audience.”
Perry will be featured in the spring 2014 campaign.
