Emilia Clarke - Game of Thrones - With Biore

 Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke wowed the red carpet at the show’s premier in Los Angeles on Monday, March 18th. The makeup artist who worked with Emilia for the premiere - Dawn Broussard- shows your readers how to get Emilia’s glamorous yet innocent look below:

“Emilia’s dress had royal blue tones and was super sleek and modern, so we didn’t want to contrast too much with her makeup. We wanted timeless glamour with a hint of something excitable,” says Broussard.  

To Get The Look:

*Prep skin with Bioré® Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser ($6.49; drugstores nationwide) for the perfect canvas  - a beautiful, luminous complexion. Bioré® Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser gently cleanses and polishes skin without harsh side effects or over-drying.
 
*Massage primer into the skin and use a tissue to remove the excess product.

*Apply foundation in a circular motion using a foundation brush. Then, use a sponge to pat around the face in an upward motion to further blend the foundation.

*Apply black liner to the upper and lower lash line. Using a palette of stone greys with silver accents, create a subtle smoky eye.

*Layer individual false eyelashes along the top lash line, layering short lashes with medium lashes to create a fringe.

*Apply black mascara to the top lashes, and brown mascara to the bottom lashes.

*Apply a soft, matte bronzer to cheekbones, under the chin and on the nose, then blend a soft, baby pink blush upward into the bronzer. Finish with a pale pink highlighter that is a few shades lighter than the blush on the apples of the cheeks.

*Choose a lip color that is a few shades darker than the natural lip color and dab onto the lips with a fingertip to create a stain.

*Finish with a translucent powder on the T-Zone.
