And Just Like That is gracing our screens again and we’re loving every perfectly styled moment. We thought we’d celebrate some of our fave looks on the original cast members of Sex and the City. Here’s how to copy their red carpet looks.
Sarah Jessica Parker
AKA Carrie Bradshaw
For us, it all starts with SJP’s hair. Those golden, gently tousled waves are evoking some serious strand envy.
Reach for one of the Garnier blonding kits to help recreate SJP’s gorgeous balayage look. As always with home hair colour, speak to your hairdresser for advice, and follow some of the top tips by the experts on the Garnier website.
As for styling, simply spritz some Lush Sea Spray through the mid lengths and ends of your locks and blow-dry in sections using a large round brush. Once your hair is dry, divide it into sections once again and define the curls using a large barrelled curling iron like BaBylissPRO Ceramic Curling Iron 32mm.
Start at the base of the neck and work forward in sections until you’ve got loose curls all over. Use your fingers to set in place and finish with a misting of Wella Professionals EIMI Glam Mist Shine Spray. It will deliver that glossy look plus gentle hold that still allows your tendrils to move.
For that smoky eye look
Few femmes rock a smoky eye quite like SJP.
To copy this look, reach for L’Oreal Paris La Petite Palette Eyeshadow in Stylist. Line top and bottom lids with L’Oreal Paris Signature Eyeliner in Brown Silk, blending well to create a striking but soft look.
Keep your eyes the focus of this look and finish with a soft nude lipstick. We love L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Classic Satin Nude in Impertinent.
AKA Charlotte Goldenblatt
Try these top picks from Maybelline New York to recreate this classic all-natural look on Kristen, which epitomises Charlotte.
Smooth Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation over the face, blending well into contours and hairline using your fingers. The skin on skin technique provides warmth that allows for a flawless finish.
Tap a little Dream Matte Blush onto the apples of your cheeks and use the pad of your ring finger to blend and sculpt upwards towards your cheekbones. Start by applying the smallest amount and build up coverage until your reach the desired look.
Contour your brows with Maybelline NY Brow Fast Gel Brow Sculpt Mascara in the shade that’s best suited to your natural brow hair colour.
Use Blushed Nudes Palette to contour and shade the upper eyelids. Opt for the paler hues on the upper lid, close to the brow bone. Stick to softly blending the pinker shades on the contour of the eyelid to the lash line. If you want to add more detail, choose one of the frosted shades and blend it into the centre of the lid.
Draw a super fine line of EyeStudio Master Precise Eye Liner close to the lash line, starting at the inner corner. Slowly work your way along the lid to the outer corner. Steady your hand by resting your elbow on a solid surface in front of the mirror. When you reach the outer corner, wing the liner out slightly to create a subtle cat’s eye finish.
Slick a couple of coats of Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara over top lashes, waiting between each coat to allow for drying time. Then, apply an extra coat to the outer lashes only.
Use a lip brush to slick Color Sensational The Creams Lip Color over lips, being super careful to be precise at the lip line and Cupid’s bow. This comes in 26 shades, so choose the one that is as close to the colour of the inside of your lip as possible. Matching lip shades this way pretty much delivers the perfect nude hue for you!
Hot Hair Tip:
Get that glowing shine that Kristen sports here by treating your tresses to a gloss treatment.
We love The Body Shop Coconut Brilliantly Nourishing Dry Oil for Body and Hair. Simply smooth a drop or two through the palms of your hands through to your fingertips after styling and smooth along mid-lengths and ends.
AKA Miranda Hobbes
We love how, as Miranda, Cynthia Nixon rocks so many bold statements. But this hair and makeup pairing is a soft and ethereal departure from her character’s usually linear looks. The longer, lighter, wavy hair softens her face, which is beautifully completed by the shimmery pink eyeshadow and pink-nude lip.
Use products from Aussie brand Natio’s all-natural line-up to recreate this look.
Create a flawless face with Pure Mineral Skin Perfecting BB Cream.
Lightly blend a little Blusher in Rouge Glow to the apples of your cheeks and softly take the colour up to your temples.
Sweep brows into place using Brow Gel in the colour that best suits the shade of your natural brow hair.
Lightly blend the pale pink shimmer shadow from Celebrate Eyeshadow Palette over upper lids, taking it into the inner corners of the eyes. Use a fine brush to blend a little along the lash line of the lower lids.
Skip eyeliner for this soft, natural look. Instead, apply a few careful coats of Waterproof Lengthening Mascara to both top and
Finish the look with a slick of Sheer Beauty Lip Gloss in Rosy.
Hot hair tip:
Allow your hair to air-dry after washing, scrunching it gently to create some body. Once dry, spritz lightly with 12Reasons The Absolute Texturiser and style your hair using a small to medium round brush. Start at the nape of your neck and work in small sections, winding your hair softly around the brush as you go. Once your hair is dry, section again and use a smaller barrelled curling tong to create soft waves like Cynthia is sporting here. Try ghd Classic Curl Tong.
AKA Samatha Jones
This bold red lip is just perfect for Kim Cattrall who plays Samantha. It screams Hollywood siren and perfectly complements her porcelain skin and dramatic lashes. Copy the look using Max Factor makeup.
Smooth All Day Flawless Foundation in the shade best suited to you. Be sure to blend well around your nose and hairline, as well as your jawline.
Blend Facefinity Blush in Lovely Pink over cheeks. Apply to the apples of the cheeks first before blending up towards the temples.
Sweep brows into place with Brow Revival Gel in the shade best suited to your natural eyebrow hair colour. Keep eyelids light. Blend Masterpiece Mono Eyeshadow in Honey Nude across your eyelids from lower lid to the base of the eyebrow. Then, take the second lightest shade from Masterpiece Eyeshadow Palette in Cappucino Nudes, and blend it into the crease of your lid to create a wide-eye look.
Carefully slick Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner across the upper eyelid, super close to the lash line. Begin at the inner corner of the lid and wing it out at the outer edges. Finish the look with a few coats of Masterpiece MAX Mascara, adding extra product to outer lashes. Be sure to wait for each coat to dry before applying the next.
Slick a coat of Lipfinity Lipcolour in All Day Seductive over lips, and you’re ready to paint the town!
Hot hair tip:
After smoothing hair dry with a round brush, curl mid-lengths and ends using a medium barrelled curling tong like Silver Bullet Fastlane Rotating Curling Iron. Sweep the bottom half of your ‘do to the nape of your neck, twist into a French roll and secure with bobby pins. Tame the tendrils around your face to suit the look you’re after and spray with Pantene Pro-V Never Stray No Crunch Hair Spray to hold in place. CBM
