5 reasons Jessica Alba never gets it wrong
Do you know what I love about Jessica Alba the most? She’s what we call a ‘beauty all-rounder’, as in – she tends to always hit the nail on the head in the hair stakes, the beauty stakes and every other, erm… stake, possible.
Just look at her on the red carpet at the 24th Annual Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles. She took to the red carpet with hubby Cash Warren and pretty much stole the show. Sod the producers! But how does Jess Alba get it so right so often? Well, there are a few tricks to her amazingness – you just need to check out her cheat sheet…
JESS ALBA CHEAT SHEET POINT ONE: Hair
We all know Jess has been brilliantly balayaged for some time now. The lighter-ended tresses really work to perk up her skin tone and provide some sunshine into her locks. But how do they look so shiny and perfect? The secret is an overnight stint with a shine-enhancing wonder mask that’ll leave your tresses looking like they’ve been bathed in some serious sun. Wella System Professional Shine Define Mask is the perfect pick because it’s an intensive hair treatment that contains pearl extract, which delivers ultimate light reflection to your locks, making them silky smooth and super shiny.
JESS ALBA CHEAT SHEET POINT TWO: Make-up
When it comes to her slap, Jess knows what makes her look good. A healthy dose of bronzer and a show-stopping lip maketh the perfect beauty look, so Jess makes sure she rocks both on the regular. A gold hue on her eyelids also ensures that Jess’ peepers steal the show and complement her bronzed skin nicely. For this look, try Sheer Cover Mineral Bronzer, which provides a radiant shimmer that can be used all over your body. For a pout as perfect as Jess’, try Lancôme Color Fever Lipstick in Pink in the Limo (a bright fuchsia hue).
JESS ALBA CHEAT SHEET POINT THREE: Skin
It’s not even just Jess’ make-up that has me in a spin; it’s the skin south of her neck. Her décolletage! Look at the way it glistens! It takes her normally olive skin to a whole new level, and it’s something anyone can do easily – all you need is a little liquid gold. glo minerals Body Bronzer is just what the doctor ordered. As well as being used as a shimmery lift for your own natural tan, did you know that you can also use this bronzing lotion as an instant all over tan? Awesome.
JESS ALBA CHEAT SHEET POINT FOUR: Smile
One thing we love about Jess is the way she looks when she smiles. She lights up the photograph and often you find yourself beaming right back at her. Though in the full length shot above she only has a half smile going, her eyes are still lit up and her face looks radiant as a result. Rose Byrne and K-Stew? You could learn a thing or two.
JESS ALBA CHEAT SHEET POINT FIVE: Digits
If there’s one area in which to show your slightly quirky side, it’s definitely your digits. Do it like Jess and bring a little colour to your outfit through your nails instead of rocking the obvious red or near-black hues. We love that Jess has chosen a bright green shade for her red carpet look; it shows that she’s not afraid to be a little left of centre and we love that about her! If you want to copy Jess’ look, try the Jade shade from the ulta3 Metallic Crush Collection.
