Things are going Katy Perry's way. She's got a new album coming out next week and she's the newest face of a well-known makeup line.


"Easy, breezy, beautiful," Katy Perry! On Wednesday, the pop star announced that she's the newest face of CoverGirl.

She tweeted out the exciting news to over 45 million of her followers.

She wrote, "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"

Perry then shared a gorgeous photo from her first CoverGirl shoot. The picture showcases her beautiful blue eyes with lots of lashes and mascara, a pink cheek with CoverGirl's Clean Glow Blush in Roses and a fuchsia lip in CoverGirl's LipPerfection in Euphoria.


This campaign will debut in spring 2014 and the "Firework" singer will be joining the ranks of other familiar CoverGirl faces including Sofia Vergara, Ellen DeGeneres and P!nk. Perry is already familiar with the beauty industry since she has her own perfume line and has endorsed a line of eyelashes in the past.

In addition to her new partnership with the makeup line, the 28-year-old singer is gearing up for the launch of her latest album PRISM, which drops on Oct. 22. For fans looking to hear a preview of Perry's latest work, there are 90 second clips now streaming on iTunes.
