To get Persia-nized, Gemma Arterton spent hours (close to 3 hours everyday) in the hair and makeup chair–an elaborate process, according to Arterton, whose hair was dyed jet black and lengthened with clip-in extensions. She also endured lengthy, meticulous henna tattoo applications and a head-to-toe fake tan achieved using a special face and body makeup by M.A.C. “The most tanned I’ve ever been in my life,” says the star of her Prince of Persia look. “When I watch the movie, I’m like ‘oh, God!’ Usually, I’m a very pale person.”
Ok, so while we don’t have to get tanned like her, her makeup in the movie, Prince of Persia, is still a nice, sultry look that one can attempt very easily.
PS: This is what I think can help you achieve the look, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share them in the comments section.
Face: Just a simple tinted moisturizer would do, set with loose powder. Under eye concealor is a must for this look. Also conceal all your acne spots.
Eyes: Ok, girls whip out your kajals. First of all apply a matt eyeshadow that very closely matches the natural color of your eyelids, all over the lid. Use a shimmery nude highlighter on the brow bone. Fill in eyebrows - make sure they look long & thick - well defined to showcase your sultry eyes.
Apply Black eyeliner in pencil all over the upper lash line, make sure the line is thin on the inner edges & a thick line on the outer edges. Don’t make it a winged liner – just follow the natural shape of your eyes & don’t leave any gaps of skin – fill the liner well into the lashes. Use black Kajal on waterline and lower lash line (I like Lakme satin Kajal for this – u could use MAC Smolder too). Follow with tons of black mascara on both top & bottom lashes
You can also substitute the lid colored eyeshadow with a matt grey eyeshadow if you like a more smokey look.
Cheeks: a very light dusting of a natural blush/bronzer just to define the cheekbones– I like Colorbar Just Earth for this look.
Lips: Matt, MLBB lip color. As nude as you can go, if you can carry off pale beige nudes, then nothing like it, or else even simple brown pinks or light brown peaches will also do. Basically just a slight color on the lip – no lip gloss, no lip liner.
So what do you think? Any more tips to help us all look like Princesses from Persia?
