Did She Nail this Magazine Cover?
These Magazine Covers Are Simply Unforgettable
Harper’s Bazaar | April 2018
For their April 2018, Harper’s Bazaar chose Jennifer Lopez for their magazine cover. If you ask us, JLo has never had a bad magazine cover, but that’s neither here nor there. Besides this amazing kimono style, plisse red dress, we love her scaled back makeup look! We’re used to seeing the actress, singer, and mogul with more glammed up looks, so this was refreshing. Her dark bronze eyebrows pair well against her gold locks. Her bronze smokey eye brings out her gorgeous light brown eyes and her glossy nude lip is to die for. Seriously, can you believe she is a 48 year old mom of two?!
Elle Australia | March 2014
For their March 2014 print magazine cover, Elle Australia chose Wolf of Wall Street actress, Margot Robbie to grace it. With barely there makeup [and clothing], Margot was certainly ready for her close up! She rocked a cut that never goes out of style – the lob (long bob), with textured waves that made her look like she was fresh out of the Pacific Ocean. By the way, dark brows with blonde hair is always a ‘yes’ for us – word to Cara Delevigne.
Vogue Brasil | September 2014
In September 2014, American Beauty Star season 1 host, Adriana Lima, was on the magazine cover of Vogue Brasil. In true supermodel fashion, Adriana was as fierce as ever. Her piercing blue eyes juxtaposed against her dark, straight hair and colorful wardrobe made for a look that turned heads! look With eyes like Adriana’s, you don’t have to do too much with the rest of your makeup. Her makeup artist went heavy on the under eye liner, mascara, and lips, and left everything else neutral. This makeup look was perfect for Fall, Winter, and all the seasons after that!
Billboard Magazine | February 2017
Something about leaving behind things and people that are not good for you that makes your skin glow! After splitting from Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello landed the February 2017 magazine cover of Billboard Magazine. Camila’s look can be summed up in two words: subtle glam. Her messy bed hair and smokey eye shadow let us know that she meant business as a solo artist!
W Magazine | May 2017
For the May 2017 magazine cover of W Magazine, Gal Gadot was a wonder of a woman, pun intended. The Israeli actress channeled that classic, scaled back beauty that we love about her character in the DC Comics movie. With full, dark brows, a medium length bob, and nude, glossy lips Gal gave us a major beauty inspo for the warmer months ahead!
Elle UK | May 2016
Let’s not kid ourselves: Beyonce looks amazing on every magazine cover she graces. However, this Elle UK one blew us out the water! While we’re used to seeing lengthier hair on Queen B, the singer wore a curly bob that grazed her shoulders. She stayed true to her signature makeup, no makeup look that we absolutely love. Besides the impeccable wardrobe styling, it’s her full, dark brows and hair that really pulled this hot look together! 10/10.
Billboard Magazine | December 2017
Who else would grace Billboard Magazine’s “Woman of the Year” magazine cover than their 2017 Woman of the Year, Selena Gomez? The singer and actress was a vision to behold with this one! She wore a taupe-ish, mauve-ish, deep v cut, floor length gown that gave us young Penelope Cruz vibes. To edge up this soft dress, Selena wore her hair parted down the middle and slicked back into a low ponytail. However, what draws us in most are her dark, smokey eyes and crimson lips! Her look screamed “wealthy cousin that only comes to family gatherings once a year” and we absolutely loved it! Merry Ex-Mas.
Vogue | April 2016
Any time Rihanna appears on a magazine cover, it is truly a blessing. Just after the release of her 8th studio album, Anti, the singer, actress, and fashion icon gave us this killer moment for Vogue! Of course her wardrobe styling was impeccable, but that’s not why we’re here. It’s her wet hair look and barely there makeup that truly made this an editorial piece worth talking about and emulating. Sure, she’s not Beyoncé, but she truly looks like she woke up like this!
Billboard Magazine | June 2014
It’s been quite the come up for Australian rapper and pop star, Iggy Azalea. On the heels of her hit, Fancy, Iggy Azalea was featured on the magazine cover of Billboard. Iggy looked all the bit fancy with her perfectly coiffed blond hair, full matching brows, winged eyeliner, and hot pink lips!
New Vogue | January 2018
Finally, the girl everyone loves to hate, Taylor Swift. For their January 2018 issue, New Vogue had Taylor pose for their magazine cover. Keeping in with this new “dark: era she’s in, Taylor gave us 50s babe meets 80s grunge vibes. Her off centered part with gelled, wavy hair, and dark lips was fashion baby!
