POPSUGAR: What was the first thing that went through your mind when you learned you were a CoverGirl?
Shelina Moreda: Honestly, it's still sinking in. CoverGirl is a brand I've known and respected since I was a little girl watching my Mema (grandma) put on makeup. I am flattered that CoverGirl chose me to represent their brand. To me it means that beauty brands are recognizing that being powerful is beautiful, and that it's OK to be outgoing, passionate, and get after your dreams. I also feel proud that one of the biggest beauty brands stands behind my love of makeup on and off the track — some people are always shocked that I wear makeup while I compete, but knowing that CoverGirl stands behind that makes me feel extra confident.
