May the 4th be with you: Star Wars Day is here and the force is officially with us — and also our beauty routines.
From the *exact* bronzer Daisy Ridley's Rey Skywalker sported in Star Wars: The Force Awakens to how to achieve a red lip fit for an intergalactic queen, here are two ways to channel iconic Star Wars characters in your everyday look.
- Rule Like Queen Amidala
- Glow Like Rey
Rule Like Queen Amidala
Throughout the entire Star Wars franchise, arguably no makeup moment is more iconic than the dramatic, royalty-inspired look Natalie Portman's Padmé Amidala sports in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. While you could channel your inner queen by rocking a rich red lip — Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick in the shade Lost in Marais is a pretty spot-on match to Amidala's signature red — there are other ways to pay homage to her royal character.
In Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones, we see a paired-down version of Amidala with a much more natural look. While she frequently wears a subtle pink lip color, she also dons a stunning muted red at several points throughout the movie. The exact product makeup artist Leslie Vanderwalt told CNN she used on Portman has been discontinued for quite some time — a Stila lipstick very coincidentally named "Natalie" — however, another light, brick-colored lip tint should do the trick. Benefit Cosmetics' Benetint Rose Lip Blush & Cheek Tint can add an understated yet regal touch to your Star Wars Day look.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick in Lost in Marais retails for $38 at sephora.com.
Glow Like Rey
Want to make your glam routine fit for a Jedi? Look no further than Rey for some galactic inspiration. Throughout the most recent Star Wars trilogy, Ridley's character kept it simple when it came to makeup — since she was a little busy saving the galaxy — wearing an understated yet glowy look complete with a subtle nude lip, full, natural brows and flawless skin.
According to Amanda Knight, who served as head of the makeup department on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the secret to Ridley's perfected complexion was the result of two notably soft and buildable products – Tom Ford's Traceless Foundation and By Terry Brightening's CC Lumi-Serum in the shade Sunny Flash. "It's very sheer, so it gives you a real sun-kissed look and the tiniest amount of contour," Knight told Allure of the combination back in 2015.
Remember, when it comes to beauty, "do or do not, there is no try."
