Zendaya‘s makeup skills were bound to land her a cosmetics contract eventually — and she just landed one of the most prestigious of them all, as the latest face of CoverGirl!

The actress broke the news on Instagram Thursday with a video of herself reciting her new favorite tag line: “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, CoverGirl.” And based on her fearless attitude towards beauty, it’s no surprise at all that she’s rocking not one, not two, but three braided topknots and bold neon makeup in the clip.

The 19-year-old star maintains her mantra is all about embracing her own unique style. “I can’t wait to share some of my own beauty tips with fans, and work alongside CoverGirl to continue empowering girls and women to celebrate their individuality,” she said about the partnership.

Zendaya, who is also a spokesperson for CHI, teased the partnership on Instagram earlier this week, hinting that “something beautiful” was coming soon — complete with a close-up of her pastel bangs, purple brows, and lime green and teal eyeshadow.

This is major for the star, who’s finally taking her passion for beauty to the next level. Following in the footsteps of stars like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift, Zendaya will now have the opportunity to work with the legendary Pat McGrath (CoverGirl’s creative director) on the reg — bringing her beauty tutorial dreams even closer to a reality. She posted last week, “I need to start doing makeup tutorials.” Um, yeah, you do!
