Celebrity Style and Make-up Inspired: Jessica Simpson

Since I started to care about fashion, one of my biggest "role models" in style is Jessica Simpson. We just have to admit, she always looks good. Even in the make-up and hair department, she always looks polished yet natural. Even though she sang about her Levis jeans and a T-shirt, if you look closer enough to her casual looks a blouse and jeans is always what she opts for. And trust me, I know her every looks.
Jessica's favorite make-up look is the natural smokey brown, which looks gorgeous on her and it's great for day and night. So in this post, fashion wise it will be all about blouses and jeans, and the make-up part will be all about a bronzed-brown natural look, inspired by Jessica Simpson.


Jessica often rocks a fitted slim blouse which looks gorgeous on her. I love the way she pairs it with some jeans which tones down the professional look of a blouse. She always wears heels, so a skinny jean with winter boots or even a boot cut jean with some booties would look really elegant and casual.

I recreated this look with a black cotton cardi for the spring or if you don't want to show much skin. I wore high heel boots and skinny jeans tucked into the boots, just like she always does. Large gold hoop hearings are a must with this look (You'll see them better on the last pic), it will give you a much more classy look. Jessica always likes big belts, so I tought I would use a dark one.

Oversized blouses are a staple in Jessica's closet! She wears them a lot, especially on casual days. She loves to wear them with just shorts or jeans and sometimes she likes to play with the accessories like in the third picture. She often chooses ones with patterns, especially when she made a switch to country music.

(Blouse: Massimo Dutti, Jeans: Bershka, Belt: Pull & Bear, Sunglasses: Jessica Simpson Collection, Bag: Misaku)

To recreate this look I choose a simple blue blouse with vertical tin stripes and some boot-cut destroyed jeans. As an accessory I only wore a a silver necklace which complimented the look very well. This look is more casual than the previous one, but it's much more comfortable and versatile. You could wear it with any snickers, booties, high heels or boots. I only thought it would be appropriated to use some brown shades from the JS Collection as well ;)

The Make-up look 

Jessica Simpson's make-up it's very natural, but she uses a lot of it. I love her make-up looks, because it's hard to wear a lot of make-up and look so natural but she does it quite well I must say. 

As you can see from the pictures above, brown and bronzed looks are her favorites. She rocks them on the red carpet, photoshoots or in an everyday basis, so I'll recreate that one.
This look is very simple and you don't need a lot of eye-shadows, the most important thing is the base. She always has a flawless glowy face.  

For the eyes, I used a light bronze shimmery shade at the lid and blend it really well. Then with the same shade, I lined the outer part, really closed to the waterline. For the crease, I choose a dark brown shade and blended it with the bronze shade. I really blended well, so it won't look too harsh. With a white eye shadow I just highlighted the brow bone and the inner conner of the eyes. To line my eyes, I choose a matte black eye shadow to look more natural, and did it really closer to my lash line. Then I used a white khol pencil to line my water line, so my eyes would look bigger.
For the macara I used one of Jessica's favorite: L'oreal Voluminous (bottom lashes as well, Jessica always puts on her lower lashes)! Because it clumps a little bit, I top coted it with Benefit mascara. Jessica has big eyes, and so do I, so this look suited me really well! Here are the products I used for the eyes (I forgot to photograph the eye liner (duh) it's the L'oreal Khol pencil in white):

Now for the rest of my face, I had to use a lot of bronzer, because she makes sure she's always tanned! I also had to go back to a liquid foundation because she always has a dewy natural finish
For the cheeks, I opted for a rosy light blush and little bit of a bronze color on top, to give it a more coral and bronzed look. I highlighted the top of my cheek bones AND on the tip of my nose! Yes, this is her trick to cover the bump on her nose, I also have one, so I had to do this trick! 
For the lips, I choose one of Jessica's favorite lipsticks which is Angel a satin soft pink lipstick, and on top a nude/pastel lipgloss for a more natural and fresh look.
Here are the products I used to create the base and the lip products:

Now here it is the finished look: Jessica Simpson Brown smokey look

I really hope you guys enjoyed this post, it took me a lot of time to photograph everything, and choose the clothes ahaha but I really loved doing this and I can do more inspired looks if you want me too! 
oh! I did nothing with my hair because she mostly wears it naturally, so I thought I would do the same, plus with these pictures you can see the hoops better (:

She does seem to wear jeans and blouses a lot .. never realized that! It's really simple but can be dressed up however one wants! Love your take on the outfits and the makeup :) x

that's why you were looking for a fitted white blouse. =) You changed your lay again. Três chique. Loved the post. I tend to use a lot of her looks, just cause she's very basic with hints of color or whatever to make it pop and so am I. I would show you, but I am a LOUSY photographer, and boy do I wish I wasn't!!
Love the smokey eye.

I like her style too, especially the make-up and the fact that she's not slutty in real life, actually i found out that she's kinda conservative.

This is SUCH a good post Marisa, I love all the different parts to it- and I never realized how many blouses JS does wear but she always looks classy and put together so she's a great style role model. I think you pulled together perfect looks to reflect her style and great makeup too :) Still loving the new hair!!!

Great post! Thanks for putting this together, we really appreciate it! You're really pretty, too, by the way! :) I like this kind of make-up...I wore strictly bronze and brown last summer. It looks great with slightly tanned skin and natural hair!

I agree with you. Jessica always looks great. She's a pretty woman, so that's not so hard ;). I really love how you did the make-up. It's definitely something I would wear, because it's simple, yet very elegant.
