It would be so easy to show up to the season six party for True Blood in full-on vamp-inspired makeup. You know, smokey eyes, deep red lipstick, super-pale skin.
But how much better does Anna Paquin look by going in the extreme opposite direction? She's got an old Hollywood-meets-'90s throwback hair flip going on, which is way more perky than moody. But it's her fresh, luminous face that we're really dying over: There's just enough sparkle to make it work for night...but not so much that you'd look worse than undead in the day leading up to a big night out.
While you wait form the new season to premiere on HBO on Sunday, June 16, here's how you can channel Paquin's makeup look:
This new kit from Maybelline combines a bit of sparkle with super-pigmented shades. Use the bronze across your lid and then the champagne shade to highlight your brow bone.
Skip the gel blushers and go with something that will give your cheeks a nice, pink flush.
This not-sticky gloss from Neutrogena looks great on everyone--and is a notch up from going all-natural.
