The prized September issue. It's a fresh Fall fashion masterpiece, packed with items we lust and can’t afford. Jada Pinkett Smith owned the cover of Essence Magazine in her usual way. She makes glamour look so effortless! Here's how to get her look:


Apply a lightweight liquid foundation like Make Up For Ever HD Foundation as needed on the face. Next, dust the face with a powder matte the face and help set the products. Try Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder. For those lovely bronze cheeks, you can never go wrong with Cover Girl Queen Natural Hue Bronzer.


Jada’s wearing metallic eye shadow from lid to crease. Depending on the shape of your eyes and the occasion, this can be a tough one to pull off. Try shadows like MAC Amber Lights or Jesse’s Girl Eye Dust in Penny Arcade. Line the eye with a black liquid or cream liner like Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Liner in Ebony Exact. False eye lashes can be placed right on the outside of the eye for slight drama. Try Ardell Lash Accents #318.


The balance of bronze, copper and orange make this lip easy to wear for anyone. Try a combination like Iman Cosmetics Lipstick in Sheer Iced Tea and Iman Cosmetics Luxury Lip Shine in Jazzy.


Vampy nails, yes please! Try Ginger + Liz Guilty Please Nail Lacquer or Essie Nail Polish in Luxedo.
