August 2011 Cover Of Vogue: How to Get Sarah Jessica Parker’s Makeup Look

If you are like me, then the cover a magazine is all about the look that the model is wearing.  I also always look to Vogue magazine for the season’s next look and then look to the makeup to see what is trending and how to get the cover look.

Sarah Jessica Parker is the American Vogue August 2011 Cover Girl.  Her look is classic both in clothing and makeup: flawless skin, a heavily lined eye and a natural pink lip.

Here is how to get SJP’s look for yourself.

1) Start with prepping your skin with a great moisturizer and a primer.

2) All about the eyes.  First what sets her eyes off is the well shaped and shaded brow.  Use a brow brush to shape and then a brow pencil or powder to define the brow.  Pick a light neutral shade of shadow and apply below the brow.  The eyeshadow on the lid that was used is ExpertWear Eyeshadow in Night Sky by Maybelline, which is a shimmery dark shadow.  However, you could use a chocolate brown to get the same effect and use a light hand on application as the lid is not heavily shadowed.  Line both the upper and lower with a black.  In the picture, the makeup artist used Unstoppable Eyeliner in Onyx.  Mascara is an important feature and use the darkest black you can find.

3) Sarah Jessica Parker’s skin looks flawless and a great way to get yours to look the same is to choose a matte foundation.   To get the great shimmer that is seen in the photo use a product like MAKE UP FOR EVER Uplight. It is a silky gel that reflects and diffuses light to give you a natural but radiant skin.  I mix this with the foundation so that the skin looks flawless and a great finish.

4) As for cheek color with this look go very light both in color and application.  It is really gong to be more to contour fabulous cheekbones. In this photo no cheek color was used, just foundation and lighting.  However, you can add a little if you would like to add some glow to your skin.

5) Her lips are in a lip color shade that is very close to her natural shade with a light pink color.  If you want to amp this color add a lip liner in a brown to add a little bit more color.
