Emmy Award-nominated actress, producer, writer and comedian Quinta Brunson has officially become the new face of the famous beauty brand OLAY.
According to reports, OLAY made the exciting announcement via a press release on Aug. 1. In the release, the company revealed that Brunson is set to appear in its new campaign featuring its best-selling line, the Retinol 24 + Peptide Night collection.
“It is an honor to be the new face of such an iconic brand,” the Philly native said. “When I was growing up, society pushed a beauty standard that was unattainable. Brands told me I needed to change everything about myself to be beautiful. It’s exciting to be a part of the latest OLAY campaign and to help change that narrative. This partnership coming to life as my first-ever beauty collaboration is truly a ‘pinch me’ moment.”
Stephanie Headley, P&G’s senior vice president of OLAY and North America Skincare, said the beauty giant’s team is “thrilled” that Brunson has joined the OLAY family.
“We are thrilled to have Quinta Brunson join the OLAY family. Quinta’s fearless confidence is unmatched, and she represents the Fearless to Face Anything confidence we want for all women.” Headley said. “When the standard of her own beauty was being molded by society, she decided it was time to share her unique point of view. We are honored to partner with someone who truly embodies OLAY’s mission to help women feel bold and confident to Face Anything.”
The amazing news arrived less than a month after Brunson made history as the first Black woman to be awarded three Emmy nominations–in the comedy category alone–for her work on the hit ABC series Abbott Elementary.
“I’m still a bit speechless. Congrats to the entire Abbott Elementary cast and crew,” she wrote in an Instagram post on July 12.
