Game of Thrones was the big winner at the Emmys last night, racking up a record-breaking 12 awards, including best drama series. 18 year-old Maisie Williams, who plays brave Arya Stark in the popular drama, looked pretty in pink, opted for a youthful glow as befits her age. So we asked her celeb make-up artist, Kindra Mann how she got the look.
“I was totally inspired tonight by Maisie’s retro feeling pink dress,’ she enthused. ‘ I loved that the color and texture gave it a vintage feel. We wanted the makeup to feel that same way, but with a more modern twist.”
“To keep Maisie’s skin looking fresh all night I started off by pressing a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate onto her skin before applying a little of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for added moisture. I prepped the under eye area with a little of Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.”
“For the makeup, I first applied a thin layer of Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Light all over, and then went in where I wanted a little more coverage with Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer in #5. I set the foundation using Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in #1.”
“For the cheeks I wanted to give Maisie a nice sun-kissed glow, so I warmed up her skin using Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. I used the darker shade to contour and warm the skin, and just applied the shimmer to the cheek bones for added glow. And, using a stipple brush, I applied La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow to the apples of the cheeks.”
“Maisie has incredible eyes, and I really wanted to play them up. We decided to take a traditional cat eye and give it a modern twist by using plummy purple shadows. Using the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Victoire, I blended the purples together focusing the lighter shade on the brow bone and inner eye. Next I applied Pur Minerals Eye Polish in Velvet to the outer corners, creating a cat eye effect. I then finished the eye by curling the lashes and applying a few coats of Pur Minerals Big Look Mascara before adding a few Ardell individual lashes.
“For the lips we wanted a nice nude color that was a little softer than the pink in the dress. I started off by applying Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips. I then added Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in #1 Pale Pink Nude to give it that perfect nude color.”
