Have you ever had moments when you see someone’s picture online and wonder, “How did she get that look?” Her lipstick, eye shadow, etc. is so perfect you just have to have it (or something like it). This happens to us all the time! In our Get the Look series, we share tips on how to achieve our favorite makeup looks using products you probably already own! Today, we’re sharing how Game of Thrones star Carice van Houten maintains her flawless-looking skin.
*Spoilers* If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, then you know that the red witch Melisandre has, arguably, the best skin on the show. Whether she’s bringing Jon Snow back from the dead or praying to the Lord of Light, we can’t help but wonder how she looks so flawless when winter is coming!
A magical amulet may keep her character looking fresh in the show, but in real life, actress Carice van Houten has to maintain her skin health like the rest of us by using makeup and skincare with protective and nourishing ingredients.
How to Get Carice Van Houten’s Look
While filming her upcoming movie, Domino, Carice was introduced to our products by her makeup artist and she fell in love!
“My lovely MUA Cindi has been using jane iredale products on me on set of my latest movie and I’m crazy about them! Finally, natural products for my sensitive, pale skin.”
Her three favorite products are Bisque Liquid Minerals, Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray and the Naturally Matte Eye Shadow Kit. They help her achieve an effortless no-makeup makeup look on screen and off!
Here’s how to recreate Carice’s barely-there make look in a few simple steps:
First, use the Foundation Brush to apply Liquid Minerals. If you want to even out the coverage, you can also wet a Flocked Sponge with Hydration Spray and use it to press the foundation onto your skin. Check out this video for a tutorial.
For added hydration, mist your skin with Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray. If your skin is more oily or for SPF coverage, you can also dust a light layer of PurePressed Base before you spritz.
Next, apply the “Buttercream” shade from the Naturally Matte Eye Shadow Kit to your entire eyelid using the Eye Shader Brush. If you have a medium or dark skin tone, try using “Hush” or “Eggplant” instead.
Add definition to your eye by contouring your crease with the “Slate Brown” shade, try “Fudge” for darker skin tones. The Crease Brush will help you blend the color easily.
Use the Smudge Brush to smudge the “Fudge” shade on the top and bottom lash line.
Layer PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner and Black Ice Longest Lash Lengthening Mascara for bold lashes.
Swipe on a bit of Sheer LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm, and start your day because you look good enough to take the Iron Throne.

3 Fall Beauty Trends to Wear this Season
This fall is all about celebrating your natural beauty in the most glamorous ways possible. There are a lot of fun fall beauty trends to try this year, but if we had to choose one, it would be “the one-feature rule.” What’s the one-feature rule? It’s when you pick one aspect of your face that you love, and create a look that brings all the focus to that area.
The trend is simple to follow, and with our Naturally Glam collection, we have everything you need to practice it all season long. If you want some inspiration, here are three makeup looks inspired by fall 2017 runway shows. Make sure to watch the videos to see how to achieve each one.
The Naturally Glam Look
This is our favorite look for fall, and we wish we could wear it every day. We all know how useful it is to have an eye shadow palette full of your favorite natural shades. This fall, we took that concept and added some dazzle to create the Naturally Glam Eye Shadow Kit.
With these five, high-performance shades, you can glam up your no-makeup makeup look like a pro!
The Ombré “Popsicle” Pout
Do you remember the way your lips would stain when eating a popsicle? That is the exact ombré look seen all over the fall runways. It may even be one of the biggest beauty trends of 2017. Luckily, you don’t have to risk brainfreeze to get an ombré lip. All you need is our Paris Just Kissed Lip Plumper, and a couple of our favorite pencils: Naughty PlayOn Lip Crayon and Berry Lip Pencil.
Since you’re playing up your lips in this look, keep your eye makeup simple with a touch of shimmery shadow. And add a rosy glow using Clearly Pink PurePressed Blush.
Look at Me Lips
Red lipstick is classic, so we won’t call it a beauty trend, but the makeup you pair with your bold lip can be as high-fashion as the other two looks. The trick to taking your red lipstick from everyday to right-off-the-runway is creating the illusion of a makeup-free face.
Wear barely-there eye shadow and add a hint of highlighter for a natural glow. To get the perfect apple red lips, try Gwen PureMoist Lipstick.
Practice Makes Perfect!
Whether you want to emphasize your eyes or let your lips do all of the talking, we want to see how you show-off your favorite feature! Share pictures with us on Instagram by tagging @janeiredale and #BeautyWithBriliance.
