I am sad to see this series come to an end, but today is my final TGIT look. Thank you all for reading and your lovely comments. I am excited to bring you a new series soon!
For my last look, I decided to do Annalise Keating (the INCREDIBLE) Viola Davis in How To Get Away With Murder. She is the main star and plays a law professor with all sorts of secrets. Is she good? Is she bad? The jury is out on that–but she is always flawlessly made up and I have known what I wanted this look to be for a while.
Annalise’s signature look is a dark smokey eye, fake lashes (in some eps you even see her taking them off at the end of the day) and her Tom Ford lipstick. I unfortunately do not have a Tom Ford lipstick because I am not as awesome as Annalise, but I made my own, more realistic version of her look (without all the fancy lighting you see here). I also chose a matte lip instead of a glossy one.
For the eye look, part of what makes it pop on Annalise is that the center of the lid is highlighted with a glittery silver. I used:
Urban Decay Vice Palette and the shades Black Market (for crease), Desperation (for lid) and Armor (highlight in center of lid). I marked these with an ‘X’.
Swipe on some mascara and skip the liner. Then add your favorite dramatic falsies. Mine are from Eyelure.
For the cheeks, I didn’t opt for anything too subtle. Instead I went for a light hand on a darker blush and some highlight. Annalise is not about only playing up one feature. I used:
Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Highlighter in Lunch Money ($8)
Sleek Blush in Flushed ($7)
This lipstick is Clinique Lipstick in Matte Plum, with special packaging from a set called ‘Clinique Kisses’ and is a Macy’s Exclusive. You get 5 lippies for $25 dollars in the set and they full size!
And so I leave you with one more full face look and a quote I love from Annalise.
