Be the Fiercest Princess in the Galaxy with the CoverGirl Star Wars Collection

Star Wars and I go way back.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I got to know a character named Princess Leia pretty well at a little theme park you might have heard of.

Princess Leia Makeup

Disney’s Leia has a very basic makeup routine which may or may not involve Ben Nye brown eyeshadow, peach blush, and lip gloss in natural (but you didn’t hear that from me). These days, the modern Star Wars gal has many more beauty options… like the goodies in the new COVERGIRL Star Wars Collection.

As you can imagine, my close connection to the force upped my excitement when COVERGIRL announced this collab with the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which releases in theaters Friday.

COVERGIRL Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath (of “fiercest makeup artist in the world” fame) designed a series of stunning beauty looks inspired by the film, its iconic characters and key themes, using new limited-edition products from the collection. Read on to see her awesome work and what she used to get each look!



Droid features a luminous look that reflects the light side of the force. A swatch of golden eye shadow across lids and cheekbones sets the tone, with gold lipstick and gloss punctuating the lustrous palette. Droid is rocking a new metallic lip shade – COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Gold.



Jedi features gorgeous golds and glowy skin to capture the radiance of the light side. Copper shadow across the upper lid, gold shadow smudged across the lower lash line and contoured cheekbones evoke structure and strength. The fresh look is complete with COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Nude.



Mystic features an iridescent look inspired by the light side. Glowing greens and rich purples paired with rosy cheeks radiate the mystery of the Light Side. The exotic look is pulled together with a lustrous lip shade – COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Lilac.



Stormtrooper features a strong and graphic look to represent the power from the dark side. The eyes dominate with a black winged liner and white contrasts. Lips measure up in a deep, mysterious red. Stormtrooper’s edgy look is topped off with COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Dark Purple.

Dark Apprentice

Dark Apprentice

Dark Apprentice features a rich look to represent the intensity of the dark side. The sinister eye look commands with bold washes of red and black across the lid, paired with deliciously deep lips. Dark Apprentice’s look is completed by a new plum lip shade – COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Dark Plum.

Chrome Captain

Chrome Captain

Chrome Captain features a sleek look that captures the authoritative nature of the dark side. The contrast of flawless, impeccable skin paired with metallic shadow, strong liner, and bold, straight brows create a mesmerizing combination. Lips demand attention with a show-stopping swipe of COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Silver.

Resistance Pilot

Resistance Pilot

Resistance Pilot, as modeled by COVERGIRL Janelle Monae, embodies the confident and daring spirit of Star Wars. A blend of gold and blue eye shadow complimented by highlighted cheekbones, and a sheer, soft lip bring the allure of Star Wars to your everyday look.  Janelle is rocking COVERGIRL Star Wars Lipstick Colorlicious in Gold.

Would you rock one of these looks? May the force be with you! 😉
