The 19-year-old Disney star took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal the exciting news, captioning a behind-the-scenes video from her first photo shoot with the popular beauty brand, "Meet your newest, easy...breezy beautiful...COVERGIRL."
Moments after she made the announcement, Zendaya was with ET to chat about her new video for "Neverland," from the soundtrack to the Broadway show, Finding Neverland. The video premieres on Sunday following the season finale of her show, K.C. Undercover, on the Disney Channel. Her phone could not stop buzzing with 'Congrats' texts from her family and friends!
"I'm getting [texts] from my sister and my friends on Instagram, like, 'Yasss! We're so proud of you,'" she told ET. "It's so cool. I'm really, really, grateful to be part of that family, you know? It's a good family to be a part of, right?"
The CoverGirl family currently consists of powerful female role models, including talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, actresses Sofia Vergara and Queen Latifah and pop stars Katy Perry, Pink, Janelle Monáe and Becky G, who sent the starlet a "welcome to the @COVERGIRL familia" tweet following the news.
"Watching Zendaya's work and authentic conversation with fans in social media was truly inspiring to us at CoverGirl," Executive Vice President Esi Eggleston Bracey explained. "She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes, and makes no apologies for who she is -- we love her energy, confidence, and willingness to experiment and express herself with makeup. I know that together, we will do big things and help evolve the perception of beauty today."
Leading up to the announcement, the triple threat took to social media to tease that "something new...something beautiful" was coming soon.
Last September, Zendaya made headlines when it was announced she'd be getting her own Barbie doll replicating the infamous hairstyle and outfit she wore to the 2015 Oscars. Press play on the video below to hear more.
