Dania Ramirez: The New Face of Cover Girl

by at . Comments

Dania Ramirez has just become the newest face of CoverGirl, putting the beauty in the company of Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rihanna and more.

Speaking to People about joining the illustrious brand, the 29-year-old best known for her role as Maya on Heroes, jokes that while her deal may have just come to fruition in 2009, in her mind “it’s been in the works my whole life."

"I’ve always dreamed of being a CoverGirl.”

Not that it’s always been an easy path for the Dominican Repbulic native:

CoverGirl has an appropriate spokesmodel in Dania Ramirez.

“I’m bringing my story, a story of struggle and hard work. Not speaking the language [when I got to America] and trying to figure out my definition of beauty, you learn to recognize the beauty in all of us. It takes a strong person to get where I’ve got.”

But of course, that doesn’t mean that Dania doesn’t love the girlier things in life, like CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain: “If I could walk around telling people how great this is, I would!” she enthuses. “It adds color to your lips and lasts so long.”
