before true blood comes back, here’s a makeup look to die for.

by ray siegel

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:

SHIMMER IT: Maybelline ExpertWear Luminous Lights Eyeshadow Quad in Gold Lights - $5.19

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.

GLOW IT: MAC Archie's Girls Pearlmatte Face Powder in Veronica's Blush - $30

Skip the gel blushers and go with something that will give your cheeks a nice, pink flush.

GLOSS IT: Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss in Natural Boost - $7.99

This not-sticky gloss from Neutrogena looks great on everyone--and is a notch up from going all-natural.
