The GoT Leading Ladies Show Us Their Best Makeup Looks
The leading ladies of Game of Thrones continually impress us with their ability to look gorgeous in their characters’ Middle Ages-inspired looks then turn around and glam it up on the red carpet. Here, we have 11 ways to snag the starlets’ looks and make them your very own. From Sansa’s spider lashes to Cersei’s orange lip, the GoT actresses are giving us major beauty inspo.
1. Sophie Turner’s Spider Lashes: Join Sophie Turner (Sansa) in channeling Twiggy with spider lashes. If your lashes aren’t clumping naturally, you can use tweezers to pinch them together and emphasize the look. (via Hollywood Life)
2. Hannah Murray’s Bold Red Lip: Every girl needs to know how to rock a red lip. We love how Hannah (Gilly) pairs it with a simple liquid liner, making the lips the star of the show. (via Refinery 29)
3. Rose Leslie’s Dramatic Liner: Amp up the intensity of your makeup by lining your waterline and adding some smudged black shadow like Rose (Ygritte) does. Then strut your stuff like the femme fatale that you are. (via The Beauty Department)
5. Gwendoline Christie’s Metallic Eye: There is a metallic shade to suit everyone, and the look can be tailored to day or night, as Gwen (Brienne) proves with a rosy bronze shadow and dramatic lashes. (via The Beauty Department)
8. Emilia Clarke’s Dramatic Smokey Eye: Some nights, you just gotta go big, and we all know no one goes bigger than the Mother of Dragons. This tutorial for a next level smokey eye will get you there. (via Keiko Lynn)
9. Natalie Dormer’s 1940s Look: Natalie (Margaery) rocks a soft vintage look here, with half up hair, a cat eye and a square neckline. We’re going to take it to the next level with a victory roll. (via She Lets Her Hair Down)
10. Maisie William’s Dramatic Brows: On days when you don’t want to go all out, a thick brow is your best friend. Thick brows frame your face in a way it would take layers of eye makeup to achieve otherwise. We love how Maisie (Arya) mixes it up, with thick brows, light makeup and a super pouf. (via Refinery 29)
Do the ladies of Game of Thrones rock it hotter on the red carpet or in Westeros? Let us know your favorite look below!
Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
