“I’m very excited because I feel I have a very good relationship with makeup.” That’s the naturally gorgeous Sofia Vergara gushing about her new gig as a celebrity “COVERGIRL.”
She joins stars Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift, Queen Latifah and Drew Barrymore as the newest face of the cosmetics brand.
“You know what? It’s like a dream come true because I’ve always read the magazines and seen how beautiful the girls from COVERGIRL look and for me, it’s just a pleasure that I’m going to be part of that group,” Sofia told us on the set of her first shoot for the brand. “It’s the women that I always admire and I always see on TV or movies. And as a Latin woman, or as a new actress, for me, it’s like a beginner to be a part of that group.”
“I’m Latin and I grew up with aunts and my sisters and my mother… they’ve always made makeup a very important part of the life of a Latin woman. I always used to watch my mother do her makeup, that’s how I learned to do my makeup. I love doing my makeup. Sometimes I go to events and I do the makeup myself so it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed. I enjoy going to the drug store for the makeup and playing around.”
The “Modern Family” star told us the line will flatter all skin tones. “It’s beautiful shades that go with any ethnicity. It’s beautiful colors like pinks and they have also browns and the colors that will make any woman enhance their beauty, so I don’t think it’s just for Latin women, it’s colors for everybody.”
And Sofia looked like she was having a blast at the shoot, which lived up to the company’s famous line - “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful COVERGIRL.”
“I can’t live without the fan, it makes you skinny, makes you younger, fuller hair. I mean I don’t know why every woman doesn’t have a fan,” she joked. “Of course we always have fans in the photo shoots. Can you imagine it?”
Sofia’s ads are scheduled to debut in January 2012.
