Michaela Jaé Rodriguez Named First American Beauty Muse For Charlotte Tilbury

The Golden Globe Award-winning actress joins Jourdan Dunn, Kate Moss, and Twiggy as the new face of the Pillow Talk campaign.

Michaela Jaé Rodriguez has just added another bullet point to her resume. The actress, singer, and activist is now the first American beauty muse for the makeup and skincare brand Charlotte Tilbury.

The Pose actress joins models Jourdan Dunn, Kate Moss, and Twiggy as a face for the Pillow Talk Campaign. The new additions to the Pillow Talk collection include Matte Beauty Blush Wands, Baby Blush From Within—a matte liquid blush— and two new Hypnotising Pop Shots said to enhance eye color.

Rodriguez, through a statement, spoke of her love for the brand's products, "I have been the biggest fan of Charlotte for a very long time, so joining the Charlotte Tilbury family as her newest skincare and makeup muse is really an honor, 7-year-old me would be pinching myself!!! I love how Charlotte's purpose is to make everyone, everywhere feel like the most confident, beautiful version of themselves, and that she does this by democratizing beauty for all and using her platform to give back and amplify important causes around the world."

Brand founder Charlotte Tilbury said of the partnership, "[Michaela Jaé Rodriguez] is an incredible talent, but an even more incredible person. I knew immediately we had to work together when we met at the Women in Film Oscar party and both share a desire to use our platforms to give back and do good."

Rodriguez, who has used her platform to help advance the rights of the LGBTQIA community, starred in the FX series "Pose," for which she made history as the first trans performer ever to be nominated for an Emmy award in a lead acting category. While she didn't snag the Emmy, she became the first trans actress to win a major acting Golden Globe.

They will see that a young Black Latina girl from Newark New Jersey who had a dream, to change the minds others would WITH LOVE. LOVE WINS. To my young LGBTQAI babies WE ARE HERE the door is now open now reach the stars!!!!!"
