This GAME OF THRONES-Inspired Makeup Would Make Any Khaleesi Swoon

This particular author may not be one for cosplay, but she IS one for delightfully inspired make-up and the like.. which is exactly why we’re swooning over these Game of Thrones-inspired make-up looks. Any lady of the Great Houses would be honored to don such a look — don’t you think?
Giving 9 of those myriad houses from the world of Westeros a glossy, glamorous look, New Zealand-based make-up artist Allison Chase gleaned her inspiration from the sigils, house words, and even a few book details to craft it all together. Like that blue rose — we won’t explain/spoil you with the significance, TV watchers — oh, it hurts! Be still our hearts.
It’s hard to pick just which one is our favorite — they’re all so gilded and beautiful — but we’re personally obsessed with the badassery on display for House Greyjoy, to say nothing of how cool those Baratheon horns look… aaaaaand we’re sort of super-keen on the gold filigree that House Tyrell has on display. And that’s not even taking into consideration how gut-churningly good her flayed man work is for House Bolton (I mean yuck, right?). Gah! It’s so hard to choose, isn’t it?
Take a look for yourself, though — there’s plenty to be awestruck by in the images below. Double click to make ‘em all big-like, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Which look is your favorite? Sound off in the comments.
