Creating a Costume Look inspired by Daenerys Targaryen

After six spellbinding seasons, HBO's Game of Thrones epic fantasy drama is only gaining steam when it comes to its popularity with the masses. With so many rich and colorful characters to choose from, it's really no wonder that Game of Thrones is an obvious choice when looking for some pretty fabulous costume inspiration. One of our favorite Game of Thrones characters is Daenerys Targaryen. Daenerys is brave and resilient, not to mention stunningly beautiful--so when it comes to getting into an amazing Game of Thrones character look, Daenerys may very well be your perfect choice!

Follow These Steps to Create this Look

Step One:  Begin your makeup application with a clean and dry face. Using a concealer, (#DD174) gently cover any dark circles under the eyes and conceal any other blemishes or skin imperfections. Daenerys has beautiful and nearly flawless skin so using a concealer will help to achieve this look more easily. Blend in the concealer with a dampened sponge applicator or with clean fingertips.

Step Two:  Choose a foundation that closely matches your skin tone and using a dampened sponge applicator blend the foundation onto your face, blending in especially well at the hairline and the jaw line. For our featured makeup application, we used Celebre foundation in Light Beige. (#DD411)

Step Three:  Apply a setting powder to set the foundation. This will prevent smudging, rubbing off and will also eliminate any shine. We have used Colorset powder by Mehron to accomplish all this in our featured makeup look. (#DD321)

Step Four:  The next step is to create a neutral and natural looking eye makeup. First, using E.Y.E. Cream in Creamy Beige (#DD342), apply this color to the entire upper eyelid area as a base. Blend this color in very well with a brush.

Step Five:  Use Mehron Shado-liner in Taupe (#DD139) to contour inside the crease of the upper eyelid. Apply this darker color along the lash line and blend in well. Using a narrow brush, apply this color under the lower lash line.

Step Six:  Using a dark brown eye pencil, line the upper eyelids along the lash line. (#DE01)

Step Seven:  Using the dark brown eye pencil, (#DE01) add color and shape to the eyebrows. Daenerys has very dark and prominent eyebrows. Use short, feathery strokes to shape the brows as necessary to create a more natural look.

Step Eight:  Using a damp sponge and Mehron's Cheek Cream in Shell Pink, (#DD140) blend the cheek color onto the apples of the cheeks.

Step Nine:  Using a lip brush, apply Mehron's L.I.P. Cream in Natural to the lips.

Daenerys. She's brave and courageous. She's resilient and stubborn. She's the mother of three untamable dragons. And now she can be at your next Halloween party where she'll stand out above all the other Halloween costumes! Have fun recreating and dressing up as one of the most memorable and exciting characters from The Game of Thrones!
