Jessica Alba is Allure magazine’s August 2011 cover girl story and was photographed by Michael Thompson at Franklin Canyon Lakeâ€”a picturesque part of a 605-acre park overlooking the Los Angeles skyline.
Jessica shares with the mag it wasn’t until she had Honor that she understood or appreciated her own sexuality:
“I was quite shy with it,” she says. “It wasn’t something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life.
“There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirableâ€”because it all leads to reproduction. There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.”
Alba has strong feelings about nudity, in all her movies, she says:
“At least I’m still covered. I’m wearing as much as a bathing suit. It’s not like I’m naked. I’m not terribly comfortable with being in a bikini, but covering up my genitals is different than not covering up my genitals, at the end of the day. I do see a difference in that, to put it really frankly.”
If you love Jessica’s look, makeup artist Pati Dubroff used red and brown shades for “an ethereal, wood-nymph look.” First, Dubroff dusted a reddish-brown-colored shadow on Alba’s lids and swiped a glossy lipstick pencil on top. She then lined the actress’s eyes with a brown pencil and applied a few coats of black mascara. Next, she swept a generous amount of rosy blush onto the apples of the cheeks. As a final step, the makeup artist used her fingers to tap on nude lipstick, which softened Alba’s lip color.
