Nicole Richie on the cover of Harper's Bazaar: Get the look!

Last year Nicole Richie was the cover for Harper's Bazaar magazine.

Nicole's make-up for the cover shoot was done by the famous Paul Starr it was a simple yet stunning look and here is how you can get the look!
Paul prepared Nicole's (already flawless) skin with a light mist from Jurlique called Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist (formally known as Lavender Floral Water).
Paul tells us that La Mer: The Mist will always be a staple in his cosmetic kit, but the Hydrating Mist from Jurlique is his new summer fave. Its "a replenishing mist, rich in the living energy of lavender and marshmallow to hydrate, tone and soothe. Leaves the skin refreshed. Ideal for rebalancing dryness." Paul also recommends, Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist which also provides helps to provide hydration to the skin and comes in a number of fragrances including: Hamemelis, Chamomile, Bergamot, Mint, Sage, Rose, Lavender, Rosemary, and Fragrance Free.
Next, Paul applied Chanel Teint Innocence Naturally Luminous Fluid Makeup SPF 12 in Soft Honey to Nicole's skin with his makeup sponge.
Paul loves this Chanel foundation because it is so light it is almost like a tinted moisturizer - it keeps the skin soft and natural with perfect flawless coverage.

Paul lined Nicole's upper eyelid with a deep-chocolate shadow and along her lower lash line he used a rich plum color with a gold shimmer underneath - all shadows from Chanel's Irreelle Duo Silky Eyeshadow Duo compacts.
Paul added black mascara to Nicole's upper eyelashes and a plum-colored mascara on her bottom lashes.

Paul used his absolute favorite Le Sourcil De Chanel Perfect Brows Compact to perfect and shape Richie's brows.
Eveyone needs to purchase this brow compact, Paul explains to us.
Chanel discontinued the compact and then brought it back by popular demand.
Paul says it really is the perfect brow necessity because it includes light, medium and dark shades that can mixed and blended together to match your coloring exactly.

Paul added Stila Convertible Color in Gerbera to the apples of Nicole's cheeks. "The non-greasy, creamy, sheer tint adds an inherent glow to the cheeks."
He then added a touch of NARS The Multiple in a golden shade to create a dash of highlight on the nose and the tops of the cheek bone.
"It's unique, creamy formula blends effortlessly to provide sheer color for creating shimmering accents, contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones."

Paul lightly lined Nicole's lips with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in Nude Beige 1C (a light neutral beige) and then added Chanel's NEW Aqualumiere Gloss in Glass Quartz on top to finish off the look.
