Our 4 favorite September covers
Which September magazine covers did the Her Campus team adore? Read to find out!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year — for magazine junkies, that is. The bevy of highly anticipated September issues have finally hit newsstands. Though we’re excited to devour their pages for juicy features and fierce fashion, we can’t help but judge a glossy by its cover. So which covers reign superior? Her Campus weighs in.
1. Marie Claire
Quirky girl Zooey Deschanel gets a “rough around the edges” makeover: Instead of sporting her typical flirty dresses and nail art, the New Girl star sported Saint Laurent and Prada. No offense to her normal threads, but we’re more than a little obsessed with her new look.
The September issues marks a new era for the shopping magazine. With a new image and Eva Chen as editor-in-chief, Lucky 2.0 pumps up the glamour. Exhibit A: Blake Lively’s stunning photoshoot. Wrapped in a cozy Gucci overcoat, the cover shows the former Serena van der Woodsen’s transformation from “Gossip Girl” to leading lady.
3. Harper’s Bazaar
Like a fine wine, Sarah Jessica Parker only gets better with age. The former Carrie Bradshaw looks major in a slinky gold number. If you don’t subscribe to the magazine, we encourage you do an Internet search for the subscription cover — SJP looks flawless with that extravagant headpiece a la the 2013 Met Gala.
4. Dazed & Confused
As much as we adore Mary Kate and Ashley, Elizabeth is arguably the Olsen sister of the moment. Dressed in Victorian-inspired threads, Olsen looks quirky and classic at the same time.

To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
