Fashion and beauty are pivotal parts of Sex and the City, as well as its recent reboot, And Just Like That.
Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes have been style icons since the day they graced our screens back in June 1998, and they didn’t become that way by having their hair and makeup be anything less than impeccable.
With the Sex and the City reboot having launched on December 9, fans expect to see their favorite New York gals in new iconic outfits, couture garments and, of course, flawless makeup to show us all the beauty trends we may not have been trying yet ourselves.
And Just Like That’s head of makeup, Sherri Laurence, recently did an interview with Harper's Bazaar (opens in new tab) where she discussed all of the makeup products she used on each character in the new series. (Fun fact: it wasn't just Laurence doing all of the actors' beauty looks—there are actually 20 makeup artists on set!)
If, like us, you’re curious to know what makeup products Carrie and the girls use, then keep reading!

'And Just Like That' makeup products you can buy:
1. Carrie Bradshaw
Sarah Jessica Parker, or perhaps better known as SJP, has her own personal makeup artist in Elaine Offers, who keeps the star looking fresh-faced but glamorous throughout the new series.
2. Charlotte York
As expected, Charlotte’s beauty look is a bit more expensive than Carrie’s, as she goes for the more classic Upper East Sider vibe. Her makeup artist is Matin Maulawizada and he uses the below products to give the perfect polished look that Charlotte's known for.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush ($40 (opens in new tab))
Get that York-Goldenblatt glow with this "Swish and Pop" blush duo. Simply "swish" the outer color along your cheekbones for structure, and then plant a "pop" of the center hue on the apples of your cheek.
3. Miranda Hobbes
Miranda’s makeup look is very different from the other girls, as the reboot sees her reinventing herself. Here are some of her makeup artist Kerrie Plant-Price's favorite products for using on actress Cynthia Nixon:
Credo, AKT Therapy Elemental Sun Balm ($48 (opens in new tab))
Sun protection is important for everybody, especially those as fair-skinned as Miranda Hobbes. This all-purpose face balm has SPF 30 UV protection and can be worn under makeup as a base or solo as a block.
4. Lisa Todd Wexley
Makeup for fabulous newcomer Lisa Todd Wexley, played by Nicole Ari Parker, was done by none other than the show's head of makeup herself, Sherri Laurence. Her beauty vibe is similar to Charlotte's, as they're both upper-class, Upper East Side ladies.
5. Seema Patel
Another character painted by Sherri Laurence herself, real estate agent Seema Patel (played by Sarita Choudhury) is a character yet to be met on And Just Like That, but from Laurence's description, she's a powerhouse boss with a makeup look to match.
6. Dr. Nya Wallace
Dr. Nya Wallace, played by Karen Pittman, is the Columbia law professor teaching Miranda's "master's in human rights" class. Compared to the other And Just Like That gals, she has a more natural beauty look and bohemian style, overseen by her makeup artist Bridget Ritzinger.
Charlotte Tilbury Tainted Love Lip & Cheek Tint in "Love Chain" ($34 (opens in new tab))
A powerful professor needs a powerful pout to match. This [pretty poppy-red tint, which can be used on either your lips or cheeks, will have everyone focused on every word you say.
7. Che Diaz
Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez), a comedian and podcast host who works with Carrie in the new SATC series, has a very natural look, which Laurences describes as being based around their custom-made tattoos. Che's makeup artist is Lauzanne Nel.
And Just Like That airs on Thursdays on HBO Max through February 3, 2022
