How to Do Opulent Makeup Like Grand Dame Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette Makeup and Hairstyle
Marie Antoinette was famed for her opulent taste (among other wild things) making her one of the most dramatic historical fashionistas of all time. If you want to look the part of a modern day Marie Antoinette, for a costume party or even a festive night out, it's all about the riches....and the drama. The fellas better open doors and behave themselves all night long or it's off with their heads! A few tips for copying Marie Antoinette's makeup or try it on in our virtual makeup studio.

Look to top couture designers for inspiration, such as Dior's John Galliano and Christian Lacroix. For an elegant ball, opt for a gown with built-in corset, bedecked with crystals from head to toe. For a cocktail party, a simple sheath in a clingy, luxuriant material will play up hourglass curves.

A fancy, complicated updo will be the icing on your proverbial cake. Your hair should be soft and as voluminous as cotton candy or cumulous. Teasing the hair is most definitely allowed and bejeweled or feathered hair accents are musts. Think tendrils and ringlets galore. A hairpiece can help give you that extra drama you need to pull of the Marie Antoinette look.

Bring forth your own fashionable interpretation of Marie Antionette's makeup by opting for pearly white lips, glittering eye shadows in diamond shades, and scattered touches of gold irridescence on your skin. The goal is to evoke all the pomp and riches that made her iconic, and to look like a living doll with blush applied in dramtic circles to the apples of the cheeks.
