Excited for The CW’s new showÂ Reign? It’s aboutÂ Mary, Queen of Scots, and we are super excited to see it. So, in celebration of this show, I have put together my usual “Makeup Inspired By” tutorial with a sixteenth century twist.
InÂ Reign, actressÂ Adelaide KaneÂ plays Mary, and does so very beautifully. Her makeup is subtle but still striking, using a mixture of cool and warm tones to create an elegant, almost ethereal look.
Wanna get a similar look for yourself? Here’s how!
Step 0: Spritz on a face spray to keep your skin bright, likeÂ Elizabeth Dehn for One Love OrganicsÂ Vitamin D Moisture Mist.
Step 1: Start by evening out your skintone using a liquid concealer likeÂ TarteÂ Maracuja Creaseless Concealer underneath eyes and on any blemishes. Skip the primer and foundation; you want this to be dewy and fresh. Swirl a bit of loose powder overtop using a large fluffy brush. I pickedÂ Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder.
Step 3:Â Apply a little bit of berry-colored gel blush to the applies of your cheeks and blend upward, likeÂ glomineralsÂ gloTint For Cheeks & Lips.
Step 3:Â Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply a pale berry shade all over your lids and up to the brow. For this shade, I picked the pink color fromÂ L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Blue Haute Couture.
Then, I tookÂ CoverGirl‘s Flamed Out Shadow Pencil and applied it all over the lid and on the lower lashline.
I blended this into the lid to decrease the brightness.
Step 4: Skip the eyeliner — this look requires a light hand with the makeup. Curl eyelashes, then apply two coats of a lengthening mascara on the top lashes and one on the bottom.
Step 5:Â Fill in brows using a matte brown shadow,Â Clinique Brow Shaper in Soft Taupe. I kept mine their natural shape, but filled in sparser spots and defined the arch a bit. Then, I applied a littleÂ Ramy Miracle Brow to hold them in place.
Step 6: Apply a sheer berry lipstick onto exfoliated lips. If you have dry, cracked skin on your pout, it’s great to use a moisturizing scrub likeÂ Lush Mint Juleps Lip Scrub before applying any lip product with color that will wind up seeping into the wrinkles. For the lip shade, I usedÂ Calvin KleinÂ Lipstick in Twisted.Â Voila! A fresh, cute look.
