Who is Marsai Martin?

Martin landed her breakthrough role as Diane Johnson in US sitcom Black-ish in 2014 when she was ten years old, winning her a series of award nominations and critical acclaim.

She went on to make history when she became the youngest person ever to produce a movie at 13 years old – 2019 comedy Little – and also founded her own production company Genius Productions.

Her role with Clinique comes after she was tapped as the face of cosmetics brand Make Up For Ever’s HD Skin Foundation last year.

"I'm so excited to join Clinique as a brand ambassador and Partner Producer," added Martin. 

"It's no secret how much I love skin care, and it's such an honour to partner with an iconic beauty brand who takes pride in creating safe formulas for all skin types. 

“I look forward to creating magic that showcases the Clinique mission with a new vibe."

Martin’s debut social media campaigns for Clinique will launch this summer.
