The hotly anticipated release of possibly the most buzzed about movie of the year, Fifty Shades Of Grey, is only a few days away, and thanks to a gorge new makeup line from Sephora, we can all attend the premiere looking exactly like the film's heroine, Anastasia Steele. Is your Inner Goddess doing "a gentle victorious samba" like ours? THOUGHT SO.
Victoria Down, the makeup department head for Fifty Shades Of Grey and the mastermind behind the new makeup line, gave Sephora the lowdown on how Anastasia's beauty looks evolved throughout the movie, and how she accomplished that using products from Make Up For Ever.
"Ana transforms as a character and so the makeup had to go with it," she spilled. "She starts as an innocent girl, not interested in makeup or clothes, and later becomes a manicured, sophisticated beauty. So the makeup transformed with her."
So, how does the actual line stack up? The products range from $32 to $79, and feature lip and cheek sets in Fifty Shades-appropriate names like 'Tease Me,' and 'Give In To Me.' OW OWWWW.
Down also revealed how the makeup in the movie had to match Anastasia's personality as the story moved, saying, "Anastasia had to be mature, so her eyes became much more smoky, and lips—which are of course the most important thing, and the focus—were richer, very red."
Even if you're not necessarily psyched about the movie, you have to admit that these colors are kind of gorgeous, no? Even if you're not into S&M, you can still get that "I just spent two hours in the Red Room of Pain" flush, which isn't a bad look?
