Maisie Williams, the star behind the Arya Stark character of the popular Game of Thrones series, recently took to Instagram to show her behind-the-scenes activities during production of the upcoming film, Stealing Silver. She posted photos on Instagram and Twitter to showcase a photo of her during makeup preparation, as well as a selfie of her with heavy black eye shadow color.
Despite her young age of 19, Williams’ style is gaining popularity and beginning to be emulated.
On screen, Arya Stark isn’t one for beauty or fashion extravagances. She’s a no-nonsense fighting female warrior. But fans that follow Williams on social media or listen to her in interviews, know she’s a big makeup and personal beauty enthusiast. She enjoys reviewing her favorite beauty products and notes techniques that enhance her beauty looks. A quick look at her Instagram feed shows her fashioning various clothes and accessories—from hot red lipsticks to red carpet dresses to a spectrum of eye shadow colors.
She also swears by her tested beauty techniques. A fan of Los Angeles salon, Olive & June, Williams endorses the manicures their stylists provide. She avoids too much sun as her lighter complexion is sensitive to its effects. As a result, she applies body bronzer to enhance her skin’s color, specifically BECCA Luminous Body Perfecting Mousse. Williams uses foundation by NARS to add color to her face. She also uses NARS mascara to help enhance her eyelashes. Overall, Williams keeps her makeup bags simple and complementary to her facial features.
While her hair is naturally brown and straight, Williams continues to experiment with styles and colors. She’s also gained recent attention for sporting uncommon accessories, notably the Singaporean brand Charles & Keith triangular-shaped handbag that comes in a multitude of colors. Her appearance with these bags on various red carpet events gained her attention from UK’s The Telegraph, that made light how stylish the bag was while still being very affordable.
Beyond the Throne
With Game of Thrones’ 7th season in gear and Stealing Silver in production, Maisie Williams is one of the busiest young actresses around. When she’s not sharing her interests in beauty looks and tips, she’s working. She has two new movies in post-production—iBoy and A Storm in the Stars—while also filming more Game of Thrones material in Northern Ireland.
