Get the Look: Once Upon a Time

 

Like a lot of you, we’ve been swept away by ABC’s new fairytale drama Once Upon a Time. The show’s premise is that all of our favorite childhood storybook characters have been cursed, forced to live in modern times, had their memories wiped and are all inhabiting a small town in Maine. Not only is this a refreshing take on the Brothers Grimm, but the dual timeline gives the actors the opportunity to play two characters, showcasing various personalities, styles and beauty looks.

Take one of our favorite cast members, Ginnifer Goodwin. The actress, whose gamine face has pretty much ensured her the ingénue role for the rest of the decade, manages to pull off two flawless and fashionable looks simultaneously. As pre-cursed Snow White and modern schoolteacher Mary Margaret Blanchard, she frequently swaps out one color palette for another in a single episode,  sporting icy cool shades in one scene and a sweet, dewy look in the next.

Bravo Ginny! You nail them both.

Fancy yourself a modern Snow White, or do you think you rock the soft, sweet style of a small town beauty? To achieve either character’s pristine porcelain look follow the how-to below.

 

Snow White’s cool beauty:

Complexion: provocateur pressed mineral powder in fair

Cheeks: Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in dollface

Lips: LipSurgence™  lip tint in enchanted

Eyes: emphasEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in black

Lashes: lights, camera, lashes! mascara

Mary Margaret Blanchard’s lovely, warm glow:

Complexion: smooth sperator™ tinted moisturizer in agent 06

Style Envy: Emily Blunt’s Modern Chic

We love our Brits: the attitude, the accents, the style! Take Emily Blunt for instance, she not only has amazing cheekbones but a fantastic fashion sense as well. Emily always looks put together and her classic, yet modern wardrobe makes her this week’s style star. Perhaps she picked up a few style tips while on the set of The Devil Wears Prada — but I have a hunch she was just born chic!

Absolutely adorable, fashionably fearless, we tip our trendy caps to you Emily.

Cheerio tartelettes!

Style Envy: Liv Tyler’s Classic Look

For a girl who says style isn’t one of her priorities, she definitely sports some stunning outfits. Then again, working with Rachel Zoe to update your wardrobe can’t hurt.

The daughter of rocker Steven Tyler and model Bebe Buell, Liv Tyler has spent most of her life in the spotlight, and over the years has transformed her usually low-key style to a more sleekly classic wardrobe — making her a full-force fashionista. And I might add, she’s looking more lean and fit than ever. Perhaps her more conservative style will eventually rub off on her parents.

Five stars for Liv Tyler. Rock on!

 

Love Liv’s perma-rosy cheeks? You can recreate the look with our Amazonia clay 12-hour blush in dollface, then finish off with a dab of  our LipSurgence™ lip luster lip tint in adored.
