Makeup redefines beauty. And what better way to do makeup than with products than are cruelty-free and are based on your favorite magical characters? Storybook Cosmetics made dreams come true by launching mystical makeup products you can purchase online!
Storybook Cosmetics’ Instagram page had a surprise for its fans. Not long after the release of their Harry Potter makeup palettes, the brand now has a fabulous new collaboration up their sleeves. The cosmetic brand will now be launching a line of Game of Thrones cosmetics for its fans.
The Instagram post had “Storybook Cosmetics Presents Game of Thrones” written in bold, along with a picture which left fans astonished! The typical black Game of Thrones cover featured as an eye shadow palette with twelve different shades, a makeup brush, a small cosmetic mirror and a few lipsticks. Although the final Game of Thrones makeup collection has not been finalized, this is a rough idea of what it will look like. Final or not, it did not stop fans from going crazy over the news. The post received more than 15,000 likes and hundreds of comments on the very first day itself. Storybook Cosmetics shared some more news about the launch with the caption, “Another possible collection for 2017! Here is hoping @HBO sells us the licensing! If only half of these deals go through we are gonna have some AMAZING collabs this year!”
Storybook Cosmetics “Harry Potter” Makeup Collection
The collection was launched a few months ago and as expected, ended up selling all its stock in a couple of days. However, the brand has another pre-sale coming up in January before its second release. The brushes will now be called “Original Storybook Wands Makeup Brush Set” as the creators—triplets Erin, Mandy and Missy Maynard from Omaha, Nebraska—were inspired by “all things magical” while designing them.
Storybook Cosmetics products feature cruelty-free synthetic brushes, gun metal alloy handles and come in a velvet pouch. Shaped like wands, the brushes feature the brand’s logo on them.
For $55.00, the set contains a flat thick liner brush, tapered bending brush, flat long packaging brush, flat shader, and blending brush.
READ ME: Just a few more tweaks and our new Storybook Cosmetics Wizard Wand Brush Set will be in production! Keep your eyes out for a pre-order coming soon! To answer the most often asked question we receive… our products are our own original creations, they are not endorsed by any company or the owners of any other copyrighted works. (Future licensed products excluded). In order to avoid any confusion in this matter, we will not be restocking the first and now "Limited Edition" Wizard wands set. We understand a lot of you will be upset by this news, but know it was not an easy decision that we did not make lightly. Thanks so much for your continued support and we can't wait for the New Year and all of the amazing products we have in store for you! ❤️
Storybook Cosmetics Instagram page also gave a sneak peak of the eyeshadow palette which features names like Broomstick, Cloak, Potions, Merlin, Bewitched, Spellbook, Charms, and Jinx which is reminiscent of the Harry Potter series. Another post showed the much-awaited pack of five limited edition makeup brushes, resting elegantly on a velvet pouch.
The collection is estimated for release around late February.
“Game of Thrones” Makeup Tutorial
For Daenerys makeup, start with a lightweight foundation followed with a good quality concealer. Shape the brows using a dark color brow liner (preferably dark brown or black) and aqua or blue eyeliner for your waterline. Use smudge-free mascara for eyes, a soft peach cream blush for cheeks and finish with shimmery, nude lip gloss.
Similarly, use a premium quality foundation, concealer and very little powder for Sansa Stark’s supple makeup look. Follow this with a cool pink blush, light brown or bronze eye shadow for lids and dark mascara. Use a wine or dark pink color for your lips.
Start with a good foundation, some compact and concealer to mattify the face for Cersei Lannister’s makeup look. Alternatively, you can also opt for contouring. Use a light pink or any cherry color blush for the cheeks along with a dark Kohl liner on the waterline. Apply waterproof mascara on top and bottom lashes for a smokey look and finish with light peach lipstick with a clear gloss for the lips.
