We were shocked when we saw this close-up of Emilia Clarke. She's always had perfect skin and made flattering hair and makeup choices in the past. But Khaleesi herself looks like may have spent a bit too much time looking for her dragons in the desert and forgot to apply sun block beforehand.
The usually flawless Game of Thrones actress hardly looks her young 26-years-old here. Has our favorite warrior queen been sleeping in her makeup and forsaking sunscreen? Check out this photo Emilia posted of herself on her Facebook page a mere month ago. She looks young and stunning without a stitch of makeup.
Not only does Emilia's skin look a few years more mature than the rest of her, but her eye makeup is so dark and dramatic it takes away from her glowing green eyes.
The hair isn't bad, but we would have rather seen Emilia in a young piecey ponytail or sultry tangle of waves. The structured updo looks cute with the headband but it's pulled back way too severely. This is the red carpet, not some GoT torture scene!
Beauty Bailout: Ladies, make sure you are taking care of your skin! If you wake up feeling like your skin is dehydrated or fatigued, begin with a gentle exfoliator like Eminence Organic Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, which has lactic acid and salicylic acid to slough off the dead skin cells.
Follow with a nourishing mask like the Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask, which has an instant smoothing and plumping effect and gives skin an airbrushed look for several hours. And if you're fighting pesky lines, try a cloth or hydrogel eye mask (chilled in the fridge) like the Sephora Collection Instant Depuffing Eye Mask for a more rested look.
As for the eye makeup, we applaud her for taking a risk with this dramatic look but unfortunately it's simply unflattering. If she's looking to break from the norm, she should try a swipe of a bright purple liner like NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Liner in St. Marks Place (bright violet) on her upper lash line which would really make the green in her eyes pop.
Hint: If your makeup is causing you to get red watery eyes, stay clear of lining your waterline and look into mineral eye shadows, which are less likely to irritate.
Khaleesi, we hope you'll find some time between waging war in the Seven Kingdoms and raising your dragons to try out some of our tips. We promise, there's no sabotage or foul play here!
