How much do you desire to differentiate yourself from the large maddening crowd?

James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature.

His works include The Pioneers (1823), The Last of the Mohicans (1826), The Prairie (1827), The Pathfinder (1840), and The Deerslayer (1841).

In terms of individualism he was once quoted as expressing, “All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.”

One of the many admirable traits of the cosmetic giant COVERGIRL is her ability to embrace the individuality of her customers through her products.

Now she has a vibrant ambassador to help her do just that.

The popular teen site smiles, “At just 19 years old, Zendaya has already earned the title of beauty icon. And no, that’s not just because she’s a fashion darling, attending events like the Met Gala and gracing covers of magazines like Hunger, W, and Galore (and, who could forget, Teen Vogue). Nor is it because she ends up on nearly every Best Dressed list in existence after gracing a red carpet. Zendaya is a beauty icon because she’s way more than just a pretty face — and she knows it.”

The entertainment voice exudes, “Zendaya has become a forced to be reckoned with. article, article, press photo

Whether she’s slaying it with her style on red carpets or making bold statements about feminism, the “Replay” songstress is all business. Despite being only 19 years old, Zendaya knows what she wants and goes for it, which is exactly why she made it clear that she would return to Disney under one condition.

“The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power,” Zendaya reveals in the July issue of Cosmopolitan, which also serves as the singer-actress’ very first cover for the magazine.”

We think you can see why COVERGIRL loved her individuality and wanted to work with her.

“I still appreciate individuality. Style is much more interesting than fashion, really.”… Marc Jacobs

A press release off the New York, Business Wire reported, “Zendaya (Zen-DAY-ah) is redefining standards of what it means to be authentic and ‘do you’ in an often-too-perfectly-curated social media world. That’s why COVERGIRL, a brand that has always stood for individuality and rocking your unique kind of beautiful, has partnered with Zendaya as the fresh new face of easy, breezy, beautiful COVERGIRL. article, article,

“I am so honored to join the company of a roster as celebrated and diverse as COVERGIRL’s,” says Zendaya. “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.”

Evident in her versatile style, Zendaya isn’t afraid to color outside the lines, whether she’s working on her latest musical collaboration, trying a new beauty look on the red carpet, or speaking her mind through the inspiring words she shares with her fans. Her ability to distinctly stand out is a key reason that so many girls and women look up to her, not only as a beauty icon, but also as a role model. Zendaya is redefining #goals for this generation and showing the world what it means to be a girl boss – smart, in control and unapologetically herself.

“Watching Zendaya’s work and authentic conversation with fans in social media was truly inspiring to us at COVERGIRL,” says Esi Eggleston Bracey, Executive Vice President, Global Color Cosmetics, P&G. “She is not afraid to stand up for what she believes, and makes no apologies for who she is – we love her energy, confidence, and willingness to experiment and express herself with makeup. I know that together, we will do big things and help evolve the perception of beauty today.”

In true form, Zendaya came to COVERGIRL with a plan – she wants to empower girls and women alike to embrace their uniqueness, whether that means trying the latest out-there beauty trends, or being outspoken about the things that matter to you. The catch: it’s not about imitating her, it’s about owning your personal swag and defining what that means to you.
