Katy Perry

Cover Girl/Twitter

When Katy Perry tweeted that she had some "beautiful news to share"—who knew she was being so literal?

The pop star went on to announce via Twitter that she is the latest CoverGirl spokesmodel. "Today is my 1st day as a @CoverGirl!" she wrote, sharing her gorgeous first ad for the brand.

The image shows the raven-haired beauty with just a touch of makeup—mainly a dab of CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush in Roses and a healthy application of CoverGirl LipPerfection in Euphoria—staring coyly into the camera.

Similar to her upcoming Prism album cover, there is a light flare effect, which creates a pretty glow around the singer. Perhaps this is partially what she meant when she tweeted: "See what happens when you let the light in?"

While this is not the "Roar" singer's first venture into the beauty realm—she had an eyelash line and several fragrances—it is her biggest gig to date. Her full campaign with debut in spring 2014 and hopefully next year will also bring forth some fun collabs with other fellow CoverGirls such as Pink, Ellen DeGeneres and Sofia Vergara.
