Samantha Barks Makes Her Mark As an October Covergirl



She blew us away as Éponine in Les Mis (seriously, we still cry every time we watch the movie), but now Samantha Barks is brightening up your mailbox as the newest covergirl of Mark’s magalog.

She’s making her mark on the brand’s 10 to watch list, following fellow songstress Elle Varner, who landed the September cover.”I love that mark. is all about empowering women,” she gushed. “I've had an amazing opportunity to live my dream this past year so I want every woman to feel empowered to go out there and make their mark in the world like I've been able to.”

The stage and now screen star is slated to continue her rise in Hollywood with an upcoming adaptation of Dracula (perfect timing we must say!) that will hit theaters next year.

Makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used mark’s older sister Avon’s Super Color Box Total Face Palette to craft the look for the cover by first dusting the darkest purple hue one the lids. She lined the upper lashes with the darkest green shade and Mark’s Flat Eyeliner Brush. She finished the look by warming up the cheeks with box’s blush and a dab of the pink gloss on the lips for shine. Plus, she stuck on Avon’s new Nail Art Design Strips in a cool black and gold print.

Get excited to see more of this British beauty when the issue becomes available later this month!
