I've been waiting for this.. The original film was cheesy yet loveable, it wasn't the best, but this prequel/sequel is going to be amazing. I'm talking, of course, about The Huntsman: Winter's War.

I have taken inspiration from Ravenna's look in the promotional posters, and come up with this make up involving a dark smokey eye with a pop of gold. 

I chose a gold pigmented highlighter to replicate Ravenna's glow. 

Choosing a lipstick shade was hard.. I tried a rose colour, and it wasn't right. I layered a coral/gold colour on top, but it still wasn't working.. In fact, a naked lip has worked better than any colour I could have chosen!

 I placed a golden eyeshadow over my entire eyelid including the crease.
The upper and lower lashes were then tight-lined to create a sense of thicker lashes at the roots.
I then went in with a black eyeshadow and angled eyeliner brush to work on the inner and outer corners, gradually adding more pigment.
The corners were joined up by placing the black shadow in the crease and continuing to blend outwards.
To add a deeper gold colour, I added a cream eyeshadow to the centre of the eye.
I went back over my waterlines and lash lines with a kohl pencil and gold eyeshadow in the inner corner, and added a volumising mascara to my upper and lower lashes. 

Before applying my eye makeup, I applied a pore minimiser and a glowing base to where I would usually highlight, again to replicate Ravenna's glow.
Following my eye make up, I concealed my problem areas.
I then went in lightly with a contour kit, and used the brightening shade more heavily.
Similarly to the contour kit, I used a light dusting of a light pink blush, but went in heavily with a golden pigmented highlight.
