April 2011 Cover Fashion: Sam Pinto In Sunset-Inspired Beach Outfits

Cosmo dressed the rising star in swimsuits in the season's hottest colors, orange and yellow. See the outfits and cop the look for your next trip.

Cosmo is taking you to Boracay for the second time this summer, this time on a different cove on the island--and with promising star Sam Pinto joining the crew. By this time, we have fallen head over heels in love with the island once again. The lovely colors it takes on the moment the sun begins to set is particularly breathtaking.

So, for our April 2011 cover shoot, we just had to dress the effortlessly fashionable and sexy Sam in maillots, bikinis, and beach wear in the warmest colors of the season, inspired by the sunset. Cosmo associate fashion editor Happy Lopez styled Sam for this Cosmo shoot, and she wanted only the trendiest looks for this it girl. "We wanted the hottest colors of summer [for Sam]. We were inspired by sunset colors, so we decided to go with orange, tangerine, yellow, and orange and yellow combined. We paired a lot of maillots with shorts. Then, we added hints of feminine touches like florals and ruffles, which are also big trends for the season."

Our April cover girl is the perfect muse for all jetsetting Cosmo chicks: she packs the right travel beauty essentials, she totally rocks summer fashion, and she has the ideal summer skin. Like her, you can complement the hottest summer fashion trends with an equally fab sun-kissed look.

Makeup artist Robbie Pinera
shares how he created Sam's look for the cover. "I made a soft smoky look for Sam, with shades of warm brown and gold. The look is more on sheer colors, but still with a hint of coral. I just kept her skin moisturized. For the lips, I used soft coral." His tip for looking as beach-glowing as Sam? "You don't really need to put a lot of foundation when you're under the sun and on the beach. Just keep the skin moist."

If you're just about to shop for your upcoming beach getaway (there's an upcoming holiday, so we sure hope you've got your travel plans down pat), check out the pieces you saw on Sam in this month's cover story, plus the wardrobe options Happy pulled out for the shoot in this gallery.
