Marion Cotillard cover of US Vogue August 2012

With all of the hype surrounding The Dark Knight Rises and it’s two gorgeous leading ladies (the stunning Cotillard and beautiful Anne Hathaway) I thought it only appropriate to recreating Marion’s cover look from the August issue of Vogue. (i do not own this photo of the lovely Ms. Cotillard)

This was a very basic look so I am not going to bore you with details, here is what I used: Vitalumiere Foundation by Chanel in Diaphane (applied with a Real Techniques buffing brush), Laura Mercier Rose Gold Cream shadow, Shaded brows with MAC eyeshadow in Coquette, lined top lid with MAC eyeshadow in concrete, blush is L’oreal souffle in Cherubic, lips lined with Chantecaille lip pencil in Tone, Revlon lipbutter in Lollipop, and back to Chantecaille’s Guava gloss on top.  

Very easy look! Hope you enjoy!

Le métier de beauty lipgloss in Creme de la Creme, L’oreal magic smooth souffle blush in Cherubic, chantecaille lipgloss in Guava, & l’oreal infallible eyeshadow in Iced Latte (these are great dupes of the eyes to kill shadows from Armani)
