DIY Anna Paquin’s Ode to Sookie Stackhouse
They say all good things come to an end, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful. “For the final premiere of True Blood, Anna [Paquin] and I wanted to do something really dramatic and sultry in Sookie Stackhouse’s honor!” said makeup artist Amy Nadine. The pro started with the eyes, sweeping Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon Shadow Pencil in Amethyst Aphrodisiac (a shimmery eggplant) over the starlet’s lids and winging it out. For even more dimension, Nadine layered the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp over top, and lined the upper lashes with a band of black liquid and the inner rims with a kohl pencil. Using Make Up For Ever HD foundation in 127 and a BeautyBlender sponge, she perfected the skin before contouring cheeks with the Hourglass Bronzer Duo in Sunset—popping a hint of peachy blush onto the apples. To finish, she coated the lashes with Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara, added Winks by Georgie Strip Lashes in No. 7 for fullness, and swiped Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lip Color in Penelope Pink across Paquin’s pout for a freshly bitten feel.
