I’ve gotten hooked on watching the tv series Once Upon a Time on Netflix. Its from the creators of Lost, my previous Netflix addiction. A lot of the actors from Lost turn up on Once Upon a Time. One of the things I like most about the show is the amazing makeup and costumes. My favourite character is the “Evil Queen” Regina, played by actress Lana Parrilla. I am in love with the lipstick she wears, a deep, rich plum:
After several episodes spent thinking how I would love to have that shade, I googled “What lipstick does Lana Parrilla wear on Once Upon a Time?”. Turns out, someone had asked her that very same question on twitter and she answered.
MAC Capricious is a lustre that MAC describes as a “fanciful rose plum.” MAC Plum Lip Pencil is more of a brown plum. I immediately loved Plum lipliner – an instant favourite. Together they make a fantastic lip combo. The liner makes Capricious darker and gives it more of a purpley-plum undertone.
Now, it doesn’t look exactly the same on me as it does on her, but I still really love it. If you have fair skin and dark hair and are looking for that deep, rosy-plummy shade to give you an I-just-stepped-out-of-a-fairy-tale look, you would like this 🙂
Have you watched Once Upon a Time? Which characters’ makeup looks are you loving?
