Charlize Theron Tutorial

New film Snow White and the Huntsman starring Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna sees an old fable brought into the 21st Century.

Charlize Theron is a 36 year old South African actress, producer, director and fashion model.
Beginning her career as a model she later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Her first role was in Children of the Corn, she has since gone on to star in many films including The Cider House Rules, Monster, Hancock and one of my personal favourites The Devil's Advocate.

We love a fairytale here at Pixiwoo and Nic decided to re-create Charlize's look for the evil queen.
The skin is kept simple and paled down slightly while all the emphasis is on the metallic cream peacock greens and petrol blue colours and textures used on the eyes.
Deep blue kohl pencil is used on the waterline of the eyes to narrow them and create a smouldering effect.
Pink blush is used high on the cheek bones and lips are plum/pink with a matte finish.
Watch Nic re create this look on me (Stacey) below.
She chose to do this look on me just because I have similar hair and eye colour.
Sam created the hairstyle from two long blonde hairpieces which she plaited, One with a fishtail and the other with the standard three strand plait. She then messed them up a little and pinned them across the front and round the back.
