The Phantom Menace: Queen Amidala Royal Makeup: Part – 2

Queen Amidala, and other queens of Naboo, have some very recognizable makeup, this post is about Queen Amidala’s makeup, which, while having similar makeup, other Queen’s of Neboo have slightly different makeup and will not be featured in this Amidala specific post. 

These are good videos the show the application technique for the Queen Amidala makeup.

(Note: That the makeup technique for applying is helpful, however, it it not movie accurate.)

(Note: These may also help with the application of makeup for other Queens from Naboo, however, other Queens of Naboo’s royal makeup is not the same as Amidala’s even though it is similar so there will be some differences.)

 

Makeup Application To Avoid For Movie Accurate Makeup:

  • Winged Eyeliner
  • Eye Shadow (of any kind, other then white for setting powder)
  • Tight Lining Or Lining The Water Line
  • Colors Other Then White For The Setting Powder
    • (Note: using setting powder other then true no color or if you can’t get that white will change the color of the cream base)
  • Forgetting To Use Red Setting Powder For The Lips And Dots, which can result in smearing
  • Colors Other Than White For The Base
    • (Note: the makeup used in the movie was a porciline white, it is a warmer softer white not as harsh as clown white.)
    • (When its suggest that colors other then white should not be used, this means that even the lightest shade of regular foundation is not going to be light enough for Queen Amidala’s face base makeup, the makeup used in the film was a specific movie foundation.)

Makeup Suggestions:

  • When applying Queen Amidala makeup remember to color in the eyebrows and pay attention to the shape that is seen in the movie.
  • Use brown/black instead of true black may help keep the dark color without having a harsh line. 
  • RCMA has a no color powder that may be helpful for setting the base face makeup without changing the color and without using a white powder which may also change the color a little.

The Phantom Menace: Queen Amidala Royal Makeup Part – 1

Queen Amidala’s Royal Naboo Makeup, though similar to other queens of Naboo, is unique to her. This is a breakdown of the approximation of Amidala’s makeup placement and techniques. We will be looking at both Padme and Sabe wearing the makeup because Sabe is wearing the Amidala makeup as her decoy. Colors and brands will be covered more in part – 2 of this post.

Breakdown:

Face Base:

Queen Amidala’s white face makeup is cream makeup base from RCMA. This was made special for the Star Wars movies by the company. An important note about this makeup is that though it is called Porcelain, other makeup’s with that name are not the same shade. In this case it means that it is a specific shade of white with a warm under tone to it which was special made for the Star Wars’s movies. The white base covers the entire face and is lightly applied over the ears and down the neck. Note that the white base is blended more with the skin on the ears and neck so make a less harsh white color.

 

Eyes & Eyebrows:

the royal Amidala makeup has a eyeliner and masquara as well, both are applied lightly, the liner applied above and blew the lashes, not at all on the water lines. The liner is also slightly smudgy so it is not a harsh line.

The eyebrows are filled in too lightly, the brow is filled in naturally, not over drawn, but simply to make a darker more dramatic line.

The image of Amidala in the makeup chair is very nice because it shows not only the application of the brow liner, but also shows the lid clearly, though this is in the middle of the makeup so we cannot know for sure, it is a good bet that only setting powder is applied to the lids, no real color. We do think that maybe it’s a white or pearl white possibly, however, a no color setting powder would also do very well.

Cheek Dots:

The cheek dots are the same color as the lips, which in this case is Nars Fire Down Red.

Looking at the placement of the cheek dots we can see that the center of the dots lines up roughly under the outer edge of the iris ring.

The outer edge of the cheek dots line up roughly with the outer corner of the eye.

The cheek dots center are roughly in line with the tip of Padme’s nose, as you can see in the images below for both Padme and Sabe the lines below and above the dots are more or less in line with the tip of their noses. amidala makeup 11

Lips:

The lips are the same color as the cheek dots, the top lip in filled in naturally with no over drawing. the bottom lip is filled in white with the face base with a small rectangle of the red lip color in the center of the lip. This lower stripe of lip color is squared at the bottom, though some pictures show a slightly more pointed angle to it bottom lip, the majority of the images show it to be square. This lower lip stripe is also roughly the width of the philtrum.
