Ciara has been named a global brand ambassador for Revlon. For the 30 year-old singer, the accomplishment has been a lifetime dream in the making.

“My name actually came from the fragrance Ciara by Revlon,” the singer, who is also an IMG model, told PEOPLE. “My mom got it from the actual fragrance. It was a gift given to her by my father. She not only loved the smell, but she also fell in love with the name. I remember seeing it back then, thinking, ‘One day, I can be the face of Revlon.’ It’s pretty amazing because the dream came true.”

Ciara will also be part of Revlon’s “Choose Love” campaign, which celebrates “love and all of its positive aspects and possibilities.

“Having my own personal journey that I’ve had through my life, I’ve just really been about female empowerment and that’s really, that’s really important to Revlon, too,” she explained. “It’s an exciting thing because, you know, it’s bigger than the makeup. They take it a step further by using the platform to help make a difference.”
