Sookie Stackhouse- True Blood
Ask any True Blood fan and they’ll tell you, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is not your typical Southern belle. With her sass and kick-ass attitude, this fairy makes minimal makeup look instantly glamorous. Start your Sookie style with minimal attention to the eyes, applying only a light shimmer eye shadow and mascara to give added warmth to your eyes. Known for her gorgeous bronzed skin, get Sookie’s warm glow with the Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad ($45 on dgskincare.com). Unlike your average self-tanners, the Glow Pad is a towelette formulated with essential vitamins helping to exfoliate your skin while giving you a glow any vampire would envy!
