Tavi’s shoot for our October cover was the perfect way for our readers to get to know the new, more grown-up version of everyone’s fave pre-teen-blogger-turned-editor-in-chief. Since Tavi herself is such a bundle of paradoxes, the stylists kept her look pretty in pastels and simultaneously very sexy “‘90s supermodel” with slicked back hair and shimmery, wet-looking makeup. The result was demure and dreamy, yet sophisticated and smart, which kept Tavi in her element while allowing her bold beauty to totally defy the “silver-haired, bow-wearing, granny-styled blogger” we knew not so long ago, as stylist Susan Joy put it. So just in case you’re totally dying to snag all of the products that our team used to create this fresh-faced, girl-next-door look, look no further than the gallery.

The shoot’s photographer (and Tavi’s BFF-slash-roommate) Petra Collins brought in an image of a glossy pink shadowed eye for makeup inspiration, prompting makeup artist Min Min Ma to bring out the Chanel quadra shadow in Spices to get the exact hue and shine Petra was imagining.
Sentiment is a soft, but slightly orange-hued rouge lip crème that easily blends with a “no-makeup” look, but adds a natural-looking hint of color. On Tavi, it looked fantastic underneath a thin swipe of gloss.
