Kara Yoshimoto and Francesca Tolot share the spotlight this month, each with two covers. Kara did Glamour and Marie Claire, while Francesca worked with Cosmopolitan and Seventeen. The winner of the "holy hotness!" award (which I just made up) and my favorite July cover is Megan Fox in Interview (shown above), with makeup by the amazingly talented Charlotte Tilbury. Just look at those lashes! And those lips! I love how sexy and provocative it is just through the makeup and hair alone, without any flashiness. It reminds me of one of my favorite Harper's Bazaar covers of all time: Madonna in her Geisha look on the February 1999 issue, shot by Patrick Demarchelier. I don't know if this Interview cover is an intentional ode to that famous shoot, but either way, it's a gorgeous example of how the right makeup can add incredible power to a cover image. For the full rundown of July’s cover makeup artists, please read on. What's your favorite magazine cover this month?
