Makeup Look Lust: Jessica Alba

When does Jessica Alba ever not look flawless?! Jessica Alba is known for her flawless, dewy skin. Her makeup always looks modern and fresh, while her skin looks healthy, glowing and radiant. Below is a breakdown of some products, that we think will help you achieve the Jessica Alba look!    
  • Face
Focusing on your base, start off with a primer like NYX Born to glow liquid illuminator . This primer will make the skin look dewy and give you an illuminated complexion. Foundation wise, Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is a great one to go for. This foundation is a lightweight foundation that boasts medium to full coverage, which sets to a demi-matte finish. Perfect for those who like the no makeup feel but want good coverage. In keeping with the dewy look, a powder like MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is perfect. This product will leave a slight sheen to the face which is exactly what you are looking for if you want to replicate Jessica Alba’s look. Highlight areas in the center of the face, like in between the brows, moving slightly on the forehead, the bridge of the nose, your cupids bow and under your eyes. A highlighter like Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Highlighter will do the job. This highlighter is super lightweight but with buildable coverage. Just ensure you blend blend blend! You want your highlighter to almost melt into your foundation. Use MAC powder blush in the shade “harmony”, to contour. This shade is an almost brown blush colour and perfect for a natural looking contour. It suits many skin tones and adds just the right amount of warmth to the face without harsh orange undertones.
  • Eyes
Jessica’s eyebrows look full and natural here. In keeping with the natural look, using an eyeshadow to fill in the brows would work best here. Try MAC eyeshadow in “charcoal brown” if you have light coloured hair or “brun” for darker coloured hair. Use your angle brush to fill brows with gentle strokes and without using too much product. You want your brows to look super natural! Set the brows with an eyebrow gel, like this one from Maybelline. This will define the hairs and set your eyebrows. For eyeshadow, use a light colour like MAC’s eyeshadow in “ricepaper”. This is a light cream colour has tiny flecks of baby pink running through it. It looks natural and will open up the eyes. Buff across the whole eyelid, focusing on the inner corners. For the crease, use MAC powder blush as an eyeshadow, in the shade harmony again, and brush some under the bottom lashes too. For eyeliner, use Charlotte Tilbury Rock and Kohl Bedroom Black . Line the inner rims of the bottom lids and tightline (the inner rims of the top lids) and on top and underneath the lash line. Blend for a smokey effect. For fluffy looking lashes like Jessicas, use Ardell Individual Lashes and focus on outer corners of eyes. Use a volumising and lengthening mascara like Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
  • Lips
You want the lips to look hydrated, glossy and natural. Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lasting Lipliner in the shade “tiramisu”, is a great nude coloured lipliner. For lipstick, use the colour “to nude or not to nude” by Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick! Hopefully the listed products will help you replicate this look!
