Pop superstar Nelly Furtado has had a helluva year. Her album Loose went platinum or gold in 28 countries, making her the biggest-selling female recording artist of the last 12 months. She toured Europe and America, worked the red carpet like a seasoned veteran and, in between everything, fell in love and got engaged as well.
But that only partly explains why she’s on the cover of this issue, our comprehensive guide to the most important beauty trends and products for fall. We asked Furtado to sit for us because she also happens to have an absolutely exceptional face for makeup. And this season, makeup is back in a big way. Credit the bold colors, rich textures and architectural shapes that dominate fall fashion. With clothing this strong, a nearly-bare face just doesn’t cut it. A smoky eye, a crimson lip, the nude (not naked) visage—they’re this season’s most important color trends and Furtado pulls them off with aplomb in “Femme Fatale”.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
