The popcorn movie days of summer are here once again, and there’s no movie more anticipated, or more beautiful than SATC2 as it is affectionately known in girl talk.
First off, the clothes are nothing short of spectacular. Patricia Fields is the brains behind the wardrobe, and she brings out the very best in all the actresses with her trademark affection for ’80s bling and fetching head wear (considering that this set in the Middle East, after all!).
But, since we are here to gasp (and revel) in the breathtaking beauty of the four women who never ever seem to age (seriously, if we looked this good when we are past 40, we’d be thrilled to bits). So, now that we are finally on the subject of beauty, which SATC star are you most likely to channel?
Her look in SATC2 is both extremely feminine yet edgy. Her hair has relaxed natural waves but we’re smitten with her predominantly pink makeup. If you want to channel an SATC2 Carrie, then go for a very delicate blush (we love Nars’ Orgasm), thick eyeliner and mascara (we are crazy over Lancome’s Hypnose Drama and MAC Cosmetics Fluidline in Blacktrack). Just apply gloss to get this look: no muss, no fuss.
Kristin Davis’ look has always been about Park Avenue elegance and here she plays that role perfectly by letting her hair down in loose curls and wearing minimal makeup. Make sure your eyebrows are beautifully groomed (try Elke Von Freudenberg’s products at TheModelBrow.com) and rock a stylish shade of coral lippie (we love the new Tom Ford Private Blend lipsticks; try the shade in Cherry Lush).
To rock that precise shade of ginger spice hair color takes gumption, and if you do have that kind of chutzpah, then you are well on your way to emulating this fiery cracker. Miranda’s makeup is very pale smokey eyes in the film; we love Essence Cosmetics (available at Ulta.com) smokey eyeshadow set to get her look. Pair the smoky eye with very soft, luscious makeup. We’re talking some strong blush and a brave lippie color to complement the orange colored hair (we love Avon Mark’s Gloss Gorgeous sticks).
The dashing and seductive vixen never gets boring, and her Annie-inspired curls shave years off her face. Surprisingly, we think her makeup is a little too innocent for lively Samantha. Take your cue notes from Miranda’s look (above) because apart from the color of their hair, we feel the makeup is pretty similar (the lipstick shade is stronger for Samantha though).
Are you going to the movie premiere tonight? Which look are you getting Carried Away with?
