Ianthe Inspired Makeup Tutorial

You and I are so alike—young, untested amongst these … wolves!

Ianthe is one of the smaller villains in the series. She is a high Priestess from the Spring Court. She is described as being very beautiful and feminine, and wears a lot of blue. However, due to a very key chapter in the book, I wanted to incorporate the colour red into this makeup look.

 

Face

Ianthe is a natural beauty, so I didn’t want to wear too much heavy makeup for this look. Therefore I applied a very light layer of Nars Sheer Glow, using the L’Oreal Infallible Concealer Palette for any areas that needed extra coverage. To set everything, I used the Makeup Revolution Banana Luxury Powder.

To contour I used the Chanel Soleil de Tan cream bronzer, buffing it out quite lightly around my cheek bones. As for blush, I did go quite fresh and pink with the Too Faced Love Flush in Love Hangover.  And to top off the cheekbones I used my ever faithful Laura Mercier Matte Baked Highlighter in 01. This is definitely not matte, but it is a very natural highlighter. It’s so pretty!

 

Eyes

Okay, so the main eyeshadow look wasn’t actually on my eyes, but my forehead. I used a black eyeliner to draw out the design on my forehead then coloured in the space using Nyx’ Lingerie Eye Tint in Morning Sky. Once this dries, there’s no budging it, so I had to move quickly and use a precise liner brush to create the sharper edges. I then took Whimsy and free-styled the dots above the design.

On my lid, to have a subtle wash of shimmer, I used Whimsy once again, and blended this out with my fingers.

For mascara, I used the L’Oreal Fibre X Mascara for a bit extra volume.  For my eyebrows, I brushed through a light amount of Benefit’s Gimme Brow.

 

Lips

As red was the main pop of colour that I wanted for this look, I used a blood-red lipstick. And this of course had to be Clinique’s Passion Pop.

 

And that is the final villain from A Court of Mist and Fury. Well, as long as I just focus on the women.

I just have a few more to go now, and it’s not long until May 2nd now!
