Whoa! Yet, another woman of color has taken a seat at the table in the beauty industry — and we are way too hype about all this #BlackGirlMagic!

Fitness trainer Massy Arias was just announced as the newest CoverGirl! Yup, right beside Issa Rae and Ayesha Curry, who joined the expanding brand in the past few weeks.

“There’s a stigma around wearing makeup at the gym, but there are times I proudly rock a full face, especially when I’m filming and want that extra dose of confidence before putting myself out there in front of millions of people. It’s really a personal choice, and I wish there wasn’t so much judgment around it. If the flick of a cat-eye, or a brick red lip, gives you some extra motivation and feeling of ‘I got this,’ why not go for it? COVERGIRL’s belief that you can wear makeup when, where and however you want is really about personal transformation – just like fitness," shared Massy in a CoverGirl statement.

Get it, girl! We are so proud of the diversity CoverGirl is offering and the addition of this fitness guru (known as @mankofit to her 2.3 million followers) is phenomenal!

As we await to see Massy's full campaign, we are sure the vets of CoverGirl — BrandyQueen LatifahEva MarcilleLana Ogilvie and Janelle Monáe — are welcoming her with open arms.

In the meantime, find out how Massy Arias is the baddest mother in the game and see how our BET Style editor Danielle Prescod stays fit while working out with her below:
