Cover Clash: Allure Russia Offers a Different Look at Fall Beauty



While Jennifer Garner’s natural beauty shines through for her cover of Allure’s September issue, we were struck at the contrast between the stateside cover and its Russian counterpart for the same month.

Irina Shayk fronts the current cover rocking a bold black liner look with a touch of heavy metal at the inner corners of her eyes and a matte berry lip that’s sure to be seen everywhere this season. A cascade of Hollywood waves falls over her shoulder to complete the dramatic look.

On the other hand, Jennifer Garner shows off her glowing skin and winning smile without the use of dramatic pigment to highlight her beauty. In lieu of curls, the star opted for a simple blowout, which can look and feel just as glamorous as any Veronica Lake wave.

While we personally prefer the fun and daring look Allure Russia offers for the upcoming season, we know that busy beauty buffs will likely stick to Garner’s gorgeous glow. But it doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of both, a matte lip look paired with a fresh face can add a dose of drama for date night or a girl’s night out as the temperatures start to drop, so don’t be afraid to play!
