I just saw this Downton Abbey collection (by Marks & Spencer) and that got me thinking about TV show inspired collections! I would love to create a Game of Thrones inspired collection but before I tell you more on that, see this vintage collection by M & S inspired by Downton Abbey that is due to launch in October!
If I had to create a Beauty collection, it would be definitely based on Game of Thrones! I’ve read all the books, seen all the 3 seasons and I’m a huge fan! Makeup-wise, all the female characters wear quite understated earth toned makeup so instead of a makeup collection, a beauty collection comprising of bath products, fragrance in addition to neutral makeup gives more room for creativity!
- For Daenerys Targaryen, I’d have a bronzing compact powder with a three headed dragon on the cover! And a bronzer makes perfect sense because she’s all tanned from her long time spent in the sun!
- For Cersie Lannister, I’d have a small palette consisting of matte brown/plum shadow (to work with her green eyes), a rosy brown matte lipstick, a brow wax (for those amazing brows!) and an earth toned blush. I’d also have a bubble bath or bath salts – I think a milk, honey and almond bath foam would be perfect for a royal bath!
- For Lady Melisandre, I’d have a striking deep red lipstick. Even though she doesn’t often wear a deep red lipstick, I think there should be a red in honor of the Red Woman! Along with that, I’d also have a fragrance (Called The Red Woman?) with a lot of spicy notes like cinnamon over base notes of musk and red sandalwood!
- For Margaery Tyrell, I’d have a floral fragrance with a dominant rose note. She is often referred to as a ‘rose’ because she is from Highgarden. Imagine the gorgeous packaging with the Highgarden crest and perhaps a rose as the cap? In fact there could be a whole Highgarden inspired bath kit!
