I will destroy your happiness, if it’s the last thing I do!
Hi guys! I gave you the choice of what tutorials you would like to see and the winner was Once Upon a Time. I thought that I would start things off with the character that wears the most makeup; Regina.
Regina starts off as the main antagonist in the show, but things quickly become more grey as storylines are added and more backstories are uncovered. Honestly, these families make the Lannisters look like childsplay!
Regina is definitely one of my favourite characters, and I had a lot of fun playing around with my makeup collection to create this deep black and lilac smoky eye. There wasn’t one photo that I used for this, it was a mixture of quite a few, but let’s get on with the tutorial!
For foundation, I used my Nars Sheer Glow as it is one of the more fuller coverage ones that I own. For any redness and blemishes, I covered them using the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer. I set everything into place using the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Powder.
To contour, I used my Nars Paloma Bronzer. This is still one of my favourite contour powders. I did blend this out a fair bit to the point that it wasn’t too visible.
For blush, I applied my Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover to my cheek bones, and onto the apples of my cheeks. To highlight, I used Becca’s Champagne Pop.
Before any shadow was placed, I filled in my eyebrows using the Benefit Brow Zings Palette, and set them in place using the Benefit Gimme Brow.
For the eyes, Regina wears a lot of black. I did have to mix a few black eyeshadows to get the full intensity that I wanted. I first patted on a layer of Dose of Colour’s Cream Eyeshadow in Envy onto the lid, smudging out the edges with Urban Decay’s Deadbeat from the Vice 4 Palette. I did take some of this shadow over the lid to intensify Envy a bit. I took this along the lower lashline too, making sure no skin peeped through.
Before adding any more eyeshadows, I tightlined my eyes using Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock n’ Kohl Liner in Bedroom Black.
To finish off the shadow, I first applied Stila’s Metallic Lilac Pigment over the top of the Black shadow. This added just a pop of something extra. On the lower lashes and inner corner, I took a touch of Bare Minerals Loose Eyeshadow in Celestine, running that lightly over the black shadow.
I then used my most intense black mascara to complete the eyes; Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Lashes Mascara.
Yes, Regina wears a lot of red lipstick as the Evil Queen. However, I did want to mix the Evil Queen with the Storybrooke Regina, who wears more nudes. Therefore, I first lined my lips using Urban Decay’s Glide on Liner in Ex-Girlfriend. I then took Clinique’s Pop Lacquer in Sugar Pop straight over the top. I love the pigment in these!
And that finished off my Regina inspired makeup tutorial. What are your thoughts?
The other characters that I’m thinking about doing are Snow, Emma and Red. Are there any that you would rather see?
Have a great day guys!
