Ciara’s modeling/beauty career is taking off!
Earlier this year she signed to IMG Models, now she’s been named the global ambassador for Revlon Cosmetics.
The deal is a true, full-circle moment for the singer, who says she was named after the Revlon fragrance “Ciara,” a gift given to her mom from her dad before she was born.
“My mom was trying to figure out my name when my dad bought her a fragrance called Ciara by Revlon. That’s where my name came from! Ever since I understood that, my mind has been on it,” Ciara tells People.
As global brand ambassador, she’ll star in cosmetics ads, promote the brand on social media, and serve as the face of the brand’s “Choose Love” campaign.
“It’s so exciting to be a part of the ‘Choose Love’ campaign because the messaging is parallel with what was and is happening in my life,” says the newlywed, who married Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in July.
“Having my own personal journey that I’ve had through my life, I’ve just really been about female empowerment and that’s really, that’s really important to Revlon, too,” Ciara says.”It’s an exciting thing because, you know, it’s bigger than the makeup. They take it a step further by using the platform to help make a difference.”
