60 Photos of the Game of Thrones Cast You’ve Never Seen Before
Melisandre Needs to Moisturize
The makeup team on Game of Thrones is really incredible, and this may be their very best work. Carice Van Houten is an incredibly beautiful woman, but through the magic of makeup, they made her look 400 years old. This makeup was applied for the scene when Melisandre removes her necklace, and viewers discover just how old she really is.
It’s a reminder that, especially with this character, things aren’t always what they seem. If you look carefully, though, you can still see Carice’s features underneath all of that insanely impressive makeup. She looks like the same woman, just much, much older.
