In recent years, movies have had a hand at inspiring cosmetics brands. Which is great, because we eventually had to stop staring in awe at our favourite actresses’ beauty looks. Now that we’re being offered everything we need to recreate these looks, all we want to do is have some fun of our own.
Now Make Up For Ever, makeup partner for the film adaptation of E.L. James’ global phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey, has put together a capsule collection inspired by the erotic atmosphere that emanates from the feature film. Sometimes simple and natural, other times seductive, the character of Anastasia Steele truly evolves throughout her relationship with Christian Grey. These adorable makeup sets allow you to emulate the different facets of Ana’s personality, going from innocent to alluring in just a few strokes! (Get your mind out of the gutter: we meant brush strokes!) So let’s try them, shall we?
