Katy Perry was ''honoured'' to announce the new ''COVERBOY''.

The 31-year-old singer songwriter -who launched her cosmetics range CoverGirl Kitty Kat Collection in April 2016 - has announced the beauty brand will have their ''very first'' male to front the cosmetics campaign.

The brunette beauty took to social media to broadcast the news of the brands newcomer, with a photograph of her on set with James Charles and two puppies, which she shared to her Instagram account.

The 'Rise' hitmaker captioned the post: ''Just wrapped another great@COVERGIRL shoot. Honoured to have the pleasure to announce the very first COVERBOY, James Charles! Follow him@JCharlesBeauty! #COVERGIRLJames#glam (sic).''

However, details of the forthcoming partnership have yet to be revealed.

Meanwhile, Katy has admitted she was excited to work with the renowned company and launch her own collection for the label earlier this year because they are a ''super classic'' brand.

Speaking previously about her make-up line and what she aimed to achieve with her collection, she said: ''I obviously wanted a variety of classic colours, and colours that would fit all of the different skin tones, but for me, I always push the envelope and try for a unique look.

''I know CoverGirl has been around forever, and they're super classic, but, for instance, they never had a black lipstick, and I'm like, 'Guys, it's 2016!'''

And the musician has revealed she wanted to push boundaries with her capsule, which followed a feline theme.

She explained: ''I just need a lipstick to make my face come to life!

''I wanted to push the envelope with CoverGirl. You know, a black lipstick or a blue mascara is very Tumblr - I told them, this is what's happening online, this is what everyone's Instagramming.''
