Why Emilia Clarke Won’t Wear Red Lipstick on a Date

Game of Thrones star, Emilia Clarke, admitted she refuses to don a crimson pout on a date because it “ruins the moment when it rubs off on your other half”.

The 29-year-old actress admitted the cosmetic product is her beauty essential, but revealed lining her lips with a bold rouge when she is on a romantic outing leaves her date looking like a clown.

Speaking in a clip with Violet Grey about the beauty product, the brunette beauty said, “Well it’s not good on a date that much I know. It’s when ‘Ah you look really good but I really want to kiss your face and I can’t’, because then they look like clowns. And it just ruins the moment. Dead. It ruins the moment.”

However, Clarke urges her friends to wear the show stopping shade and teaches her friends how to perfect the beauty trend by applying it for them.

She said, “If I’m going out with my mates, I will do their makeup and teach them. I also help them put on red lipstick, which I always encourage people to wear. The key is finding the right shade for you.”

Although the Me Before You star enjoys experimenting with makeup and practicing on others, she is yet to master the “smokey eye”.

Emilia, who won the Empire Hero Award at last year’s Empire Awards for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’, also revealed she had another red disaster when she attempted to highlight her hair.

Speaking about the beauty blunder, she said, “One interesting episode at age four where I thought I would add in some redder highlights and make it richer. Instead of getting a richer brown I just turned my hair red. I wouldn’t do that again.”
