The One Palette You Need to Get Samantha Barks' November Cover Look

In honor of their 10th birthday, one of my favorite brands, Mark Cosmetics, enlisted Les Miserables actress, Samantha Barks to be their magazine's cover girl.  I got a peek at what it was like working with Samantha behind the scenes.  Her cover look?  Really fresh and right on trend.  Check it out along with tips on how to get it from her makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg.  PS: She pretty much used one palette!

Face & Cheeks:

“I prepped Samantha’s skin using a tinted moisturizer. Then, I dusted the pink shade from mark’s Super Color Box Total Face Palette ($24.99) onto the apples of her cheeks.”


“I applied the darkest purple shade, found on the right side of the Super Color Box Total Face Palette, onto her eyelids. Next, I applied the dark green shade to her upper lash line. This contrast complemented her skintone beautifully.  I applied two coats of mascara to her lashes to finish her eyes.”


“To complete the look, I applied the pink gloss shade from the Super Color Box Total Face Palette to Samantha’s lips, which tied the entire look together.”
