On Coveted Canvas over the past week we’ve been looking at the makeup looks of Sex and the City 2 with Charlotte, Samantha and Carrie‘s how to’s. Now we’re rounding up the four fabulous friends with Miranda, the lawyer, mother and good friend.


Miranda’s makeup is a little more playful in the second part of the movie when she has more time for her.  Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Pink Shimmer (RRP $9.95) is not a likely choice for a red head but works well because of its shiny qualities.  Other colours great for those with fair skin and flaming hair include red, bronze and nude.

After yesterday’s post on how to get Carrie Bradshaw’s amazing Abu Dhabi look, I’m hoping you’re all feeling inspired to try out the power woman look that Samantha Jones rocks so well!



Sam’s look didn’t change a whole lot from the first Sex and the City movie to the second.  Her hair is longer and more free and she rocked a bit more of a red lip.  Power woman all the way.  I love the way Sam works and her ‘I’m right’ attitude.  She rocks the ‘I am woman, hear me roar’ feel.

Let’s first look at her lipstick  As I said, Sam’s rocking the red lip more in the second movie.  I like Face of Australia Lip Quench Lipstick (RRP $9.49) for its staying power.

Growing up, I would watch Sex and the City religiously.  Often out of the eyes of my parents, I’d watch Carrie date countless men, muse on her relationships and write about them in her column.  I’d admire Miranda’s work ethic and Samantha’s no-holds-barred attitude, and I’d love Charlotte’s determination for the picture perfect romance.  I learnt a lot from those four friends, be it that clashing prints work, that I want to be a writer, that friendship is one of the strongest bonds you will find in life or that romance – any and every type – is just fabulous.

SATC the TV series.

When the first movie came out, I was beyond thrilled.  I hated it in cinemas but loved it during the re-watch.  The second movie was cheesy, a full romp.  But the fashion was wonderful and the friendship stronger than ever.

SATC the Movie.

What I most loved in SATC2 was the makeup.  The girls had each changed just a little.  Samantha was rocking a powerful red lip, Miranda had a more relaxed attitude thanks to the fact she quit her job, Charlotte was mostly the same, save for a bit more pink (influenced by her girls?) and Carrie – with the biggest noticeable change – had a more tanned, bronzed makeup.

Throughout the week we’ll be showing you how how you can use their makeup progression for inspiration.  First, the star of the show, Carrie Bradshaw…

SATC2 + SJP = Curls, Curls, Curls!

Looking back through the Sex and the City series in prep for the movie (isn’t everyone doing that?), I couldn’t help but wonder how many curly hair styles Sarah Jessica Parker has to match her Manolos? Endless hair styles, changing throughout seasons, most making use of her naturally curly hair.

As the premier and stills of the second movie hit press, we notice SJP is adding more curl to her CV.  In the 80s flashback, her hair is uber curled, then regular tousling sees her in her sexy, coveted, every day hair.
