Reese looked absolutely gorgeous, didn’t she!?

Reese Witherspoon, 37, covers the November issue of Elle Magazine, dubbed the “Women in Hollywood” issue. Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy and Shailene Woodley also have covers (I’ll post those below). Witherspoon looks amazing on the cover, doesn’t she?

In the interview, she talked about her children, and how they made her a better woman. “Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true,” the Oscar winner says. “I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way.”

Witherspoon has two children with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. 14-year-old Ava, and 9-year-old Deacon. She also has a 12-month old son, Tennessee with her second husband Jim Toth. “Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids — probably really competitive, to be honest,” she said. “It really made me let go of that.”

Reese is not only in front of the camera, but she’s also behind it. In 2000 she founded Type A Films, which merged with Pacific Standard in 2012. “I started noticing a couple years ago that I wasn’t seeing women as the stars of movies,” she recalls. “I’m seeing them as the guys’ girlfriends, or so-and-so’s wife. I just thought: God, if I don’t start buckling down and start producing some movies, what’s my daughter going to see in the movies?”

Laura Mercier worked with actress Reese Witherspoon for the Toronto International Film Festival Screening of “Devil’s Knot.”

FACE: Illuminated, flawless skin

· Quynh first prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Moisture Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Normal/Combination, ($52) and then used her fingers to apply Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, ($32) all over Witherspoon’s face.

· She then applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Cashew Beige, ($45), using a sponge.

· Next, she created a natural flush of colour using Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, ($24) and Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Peach Mosaic, ($40).

· To ensure Witherspoon’s makeup stayed in place all night, she applied Laura Mercier Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent, ($34) using the Laura Mercier Finishing Brush, ($42).

LIPS: Bright coral lips contrast Witherspoon’s green Jimmy Choos

· Quynh lined Witherspoon’s lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Warm Poppy, ($22) and then applied Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Tangerine, ($24) to create the bold pout.

EYES: Soft bronzed eyes

· First, Quynh applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow, ($26) to Witherspoon’s eyelids, from the lash line to the crease, and then blended upwards.

· Next, she applied Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow, ($24) on the crease of the eyes and faded the colour up towards the brow bone. Then, she smudged both the Illuminating Eye Colour and Caviar Stick Eye Colour along the bottom lash lines using the Laura Mercier Smudge Brush, ($24).

Reese Witherspoon: “Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything.”

Reese Witherspoon was arrested last weekend following her husband’s own arrest for DUI. Reese was supposed to be promoting her new movie, ‘Mud,’ last week, but instead canceled all her TV appearances, and has been laying low. This cover shoot and interview obviously happened before her arrest, so it’s a bit interesting to read it now. Especially the part where she talks about saying her brain is just downright different after giving birth to her son, Tennessee.

Here are some tidbits:

On her brain shifting after the birth of her son Tennessee: “Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain. I’m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby. It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times [puts on robotic voice]: ‘Where is Ava? She’s okay. Good. Where is Deacon? He’s okay. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he okay? Yes. Great. Back to Ava…’ It doesn’t stop.”

On men vs. women: “Even now, in America, a woman makes 87 cents to every dollar a man makes. If you’re a black woman, you make 75 cents. You’re a latin woman, it’s 67 cents. And this is doing the same job. There is enormous inequality in pay and inequality in the workplace to this day.”

Her Oscar is on display: “Because Lord knows every day is not a success, every year is not a success. You have to celebrate the good.”
