We’re big fans of ex-The Simple Life star/ Paris’s BFF, Nicole Richie. But long are the days of pitch forks, neon hair extensions and late nights clubbing. This yummy mummy designer has had a life overhaul (and a baby) and is look H.O.T. on the cover of the October issue of Harpers Bazaar Arabia. We love her look so much we thought we’d help you lovely lot get her look… although I’m afraid we can’t help with the price tag of the Louis Vuitton dress she’s wearing here (price on application is never a good sign for the bank balance).


We’re all for the flawless look and Richie’s got it down to a ‘T’ here. To get the same look, try NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with Clinique’s Airbrush concealer to hide dark circle and blemishes.

Nicole has tamed down the use of bronzer for this look and you should too; we’re not going for Ronaldo here, more rosy. With this in mind take a subtle bronzer such as Lancaster’s Beauty Variations palette and shade under the cheekbones and over the brow bones with the darker shades. Then take the rosy blush shade, smile to raise the apple of your cheeks, and apply it evenly and lightly to achieve a pretty sunny glow that sure to suit any complexion.

Nicole’s eyes are the focal point of this look. Make sure you’ve softly defined your brows if you need to, then take a matte taupe shadow such as MACs shadow in Copperplate and shade in the socket of your eye, taking a lighter champagne colour (such as Estee Lauder’s shadow in Sugar Biscuit and highlight the inner corners of your eye. Then take the taupe again and lightly shade under the eye also. Finally take a cream eyeliner such as Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Eyeliner Gel in Black Ink and apply the dramatic feline flick.

The best way to achieve this look is by closing one eye and pulling the eyelid skin taught towards the brow. With the skin tight, draw liner on using a super sharp, angled eyeliner brush. Draw the line straight across the lash line at first, stopping at the corner on one eye before doing the same on the other. Then finish off the line on each eye by creating the flick at the corner by lifting the line to flick towards the outer brow. By doing it in stages you can make sure the lines are equal.

If you want to really go for it, add a black kohl liner to the mix and colour the inner eyeline with the pencil for added drama.


She’s gone for natural, peachy lips here so all you’ll need is a dewy lipstick than you can dab on to your lips and blend in with your finger for that natural look. I’d recommend any of the nudes in MAC’s glaze range for this.
