For three seasons, the make-up team of ABC’s Once Upon a Time has brought fairy-tale characters to life. A crucial member of this team is Naomi Bakstad, the artist responsible for transforming actress Lana Parrilla into the Evil Queen.

“It’s such a great artistic show and talented make-up team to be part of,” says Bakstad. “Lana plays a few different characters on the show. The queen is always a treat. I also make her up as young Regina, which is one of my favorite looks: very young and fresh; lots of pink and white eye liner.

“Of course we use lashes for every look! It’s very creative. Lana loves working with me to design the looks. We like to do a little something different every time we see the Evil Queen, and we are always inspired by Eduardo Castro’s amazing costumes!”

Read on to see what Bakstad used to create this look for Parrilla’s wicked royal.

Editor's note: This breakdown originally appeared in Issue 106 of Make-Up Artist magazine. 

Skincare
“We always start with a purified-water hot towel,” Bakstad says.
Foundation
Primer: “I start with Youngblood Mineral [Cosmetics] Primer; this helps keep her skin hydrated and fresh for a long shooting day,” she says. Foundation: “I lighten her skin for the queen look, so I use Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin in Buff, mixed with Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer foundation in 4,” Bakstad explains. “I use a pink Beautyblender sponge wet to buff this into her skin.”
Concealer
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat in Luminous Ivory under eyes and on top of cheekbones; Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Ultimate Concealer in Medium, where needed
Powder
Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder
Bronzer
Stila Convertible Color in Camellia and M.A.C. Powder Blush in Harmony
Blush
Stila Convertible Color in Lillium
Eye Shadow
Eyes were primed with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Linen. “For this look I used M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Contrast to create the outer shape, then blended the lid with Star Violet and Satin Taupe; Nylon shadow under the brow and Crystal Avalanche on the inside corner and under the lower lash,” Bakstad says.
Eye Liner
Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner in True Black over the top lash line, blended with M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Carbon on the top and bottom lash line, then M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Star Violet under lower lash line, below the black
Brows
Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground, mixed with Evian mineral water
Mascara
Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara in Black is used to pull Parrilla’s natural lashes and the falsies together.
False Lashes
Lashes are curled then enhanced with M.A.C. 2 Lash.
Lips
M.A.C. Lip Pencil in Stripdown, Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Cha Cha and M.A.C. Lipglass in Poetic License. (Poetic License is no longer available. M.A.C. suggests mixing Tinted Lipglasses in C-Thru and Lychee Luxe to create a similar effect.)
Highlights / Countour
“As a powder contour/bronzer I use M.A.C. Harmony [eye] shadow,” Bakstad says. “For this look I also brushed Ben Nye Eye Shadow in ES-97 Greystone into the cheek, jaw, nose and forehead, shading for an extra bit of evilness!”
Additional Information
The beauty mark is created using M.A.C. Eye Kohl in Smolder; nails are painted with OPI Nail Lacquer in Black Onyx.
