Calling all fans of the now iconic HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones – the long-running show has just had a major homage paid to it. 

Urban Decay, one of the most innovative makeup brands out there, has teamed up with the mediaeval epic to launch a collection inspired by the women of Westeros. 

The line glorifies the Seven Kingdoms, it's battles and it's legends, and it will be released alongside the final season of the show – due to air on April 14th.

According to Urban Decay: 'We’ve partnered with HBO to create the Urban Decay | Game of Thrones collection, inspired by our favourite places in Westeros and the strong women of the Seven Kingdoms.'

'From the shores of Dragonstone to the frozen lands beyond the Wall, this collection will let you create looks inspired by House Stark, House Targaryen, House Lannister, and the White Walkers.'

The collection includes cheek tints, makeup brushes and lipsticks – but the trophy piece has got to be the Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette.

The palette features eyeshadows that would be used in House Stark, House Targaryen, House Lannister, and by the White Walkers all in one inclusive palette – and the packaging includes a pop-up iron throne, making it the ultimate display piece for a mega-fan. 

The palette has sixteen shades of eyeshadow, so a quad per theme, plus one additional highlight shade per House.

Four lipsticks also pay homage to the Houses – named  Daenerys, a blood red metallic, Sansa, a neutral baby nude, Cersei, a metallic brown and White Walker, a rich burgundy.

It's a given that we've all wanted to look as stunning as the Mother of Dragons at some point – and UD is launching a highlight and cheek palette to get Daenerys Targaryen's inner glow (without having to sit in a fire with a dragon egg.)

The Mother Of Dragons Highlight Palette has three buttery shades to flatter all skin types – and each shade is named after one of Daenerys' beloved dragons.

If you want to be the first to get your hands on the line in  time to create some GoT-inspired looks for your new season binge session – you can sign up to the waiting list now.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are set to tie the knot later this summer after they got engaged in October 2017.

The lovebirds had been dating for a little under a year before Joe got down on one knee and although fans were over the moon for the pair, many admitted they were quite surprised by the news.

At the time of their engagement, the Game of Thrones star was only 21-years-old. The actress recently  opened up about getting engaged at such a young age in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Getting engaged and married in your early 20s was the norm back in the day, but these days, people are waiting longer to settle down.

This didn’t phase Sophie because she said that she doesn’t feel like a normal 22-year-old.

“I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life,” she admitted.

“I think once you’ve found the right person, you just know. I feel like I’m much older a soul than I am in age. I feel like I’ve lived enough life to know.

“I’ve met enough guys to know—I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.”

There’s no doubt the 23-year-old actress is head over heels in love with Joe. She recently gushed about her beau to Glamour magazine: “A lot of [my happiness now] is to do with being with a person I’ve fallen in love with, who loves me more than he loves himself, and who wants to see me find my own happiness.”

She added: “That was probably the biggest thing that pushed me to find who I am and find my happiness in things other than acting.”

Power to ya, Sophie.

Start your engines, JONAS are Burnin' Up. We had to get that joke out of the way, our apologies…

The Jonas Brothers have sent Twitter into a meltdown, apparently reuniting after six long, hard years of separation. They got engaged, got married, and even started a family, in Kevin's case. 

Now they're back with brand new music, and rumour has it they're releasing a song named Sucker tonight at midnight, March 1.

Kevin, Joe and Nick are back as JONAS, after Joe became the frontman of DNCE and Nick began a solo career; but it's all changing now.

The news comes after they reactivated their accounts and set the images to black, which ALWAYS means that something major is about to drop:

Their social media has made their return imminent, after reactivating their Instagram and deleting every post on all channels, and uploading a black square for their profile picture. Very "It's 2017 and I'm going to cause a furore".

Fans are already going wild:

Back in October 2014, the JoBro's announced their break-up and devastated fans around the world, but their fans are LOSING IT at the prospect of their return:

Their fans would be in their 20s now, and chances are high that they've thrown dignity out the window:

The reactions are both hilarious and slightly concerning:

Nobody is staying calm…

We're thoroughly enjoying the worldwide panic online, and we desperately hope they announce a tour to go along with the new tunes.

We're ready for them to ruin our lives again, anytime. Can you believe the Jo-Bros are back before One Direction? It's scandalous… we love it. Long may it continue.

OK, so this is totally a breakthrough for when you have nothing to do and a bottle of wine is still lying in the fridge from last week.

The next time you and your housemate are bored silly from sitting around the house all day, why not start a drinking game and get a few of your gal pals over. 

From Gossip Girl, to Scrubs, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Game of Thrones, there's a drinking game for that on Drink Wiki. There's even one for Say Yes To The Dress. Score!

And if you happen to come up with a drinking game for a show that isn't on the list, then fear not, because you're allowed to add your own in. 

So, get ready to take a sip of wine whenever Serena and Blair fight, a gulp of your Manhattan whenever Carrie changes her outfit and a tipple of champagne whenever someone says yes to their wedding dress.

Saturday nights at home just got WAY more fun. Crack open the wine, girls.

Unless you've been living under a gigantic Game of Thrones rock, you know exactly who Kit Harington is. Many people know more about his most famous character, Jon Snow, than the actual man who portrays him.

Harington is the 32-year-old British hunk has portrayed the ridiculously attractive Lord Commander of the Night's Watch on HBO's iconic fantasy series for almost ten years now.

It's getting increasingly difficult to imagine him playing anyone other than Snow, guarding the Wall and taking down the dangerous White Walkers. Not to mention falling in love with powerful women like Ygritte and Daenerys Targaryen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@jonsnowposts) on

Harington owes a lot to The Snow Show, including his wife. He fell in love on set with Rose Leslie, who played his on-screen lover Ygritte, a feisty wildling.

With the premiere of GOT's season eight fast approaching, Jon Snow's watch will soon end, but what's next for the actor?

As dismayed as we are at the prospect of losing Snow, Harington himself is ready to hang up the cloak; 

"I'd like to step away and enjoy the obscurity, cut my hair, make myself less recognisable as the character, and go do and some other things with a completely new look and tone," Harington told Entertainment Weekly.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@jonsnowposts) on

He added, "I can't go into my next role looking the same. This role was brilliant, but I'll need to get rid of Jon Snow."

Harington underwent several roles outside the world of Westeros, starring in Pompeii, Brimstone and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan between 2014 and 2018.

The actor doesn't currently have any roles lined up after GOT airs the final season from April, with six lengthier episodes. Kit admitted that filming the final season was intensely gruelling.

Despite the fewer episode count, it took almost a full year in Belfast to film the last season of the successful franchise, with every episode the length of one movie.

It took 55 nights to film one Army of the Dead scene, so you'd 100 percent need a break after something like that.

"The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us," he told GQ Australia. "Everyone was broken at the end. I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f*cking tiring."

Harington returned to his theatre roots last November, co-starring with Johnny Flynn in London's West End premiere of Sam Shepard's True West. 

The show will run until February, and tells the tale of two brothers who are trying to sell movie scripts to the same Hollywood producer.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World have also enlisted Harington for his voice acting skills for the final part of the film trilogy. The GOT alumni voices Eret, who he also voiced in the 2014 sequel.

You definitely won't be seeing him in the Game of Thrones prequel, that's for sure. He shut that one down pretty quickly, telling the BBC;

"It was a huge emotional upheaval leaving that family. But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life."

Darn it, we just can't get enough of Jon Snow. He may know nothing, but he's everything to us Game of Thrones fangirls, isn't he?

Is there any nostalgic band that isn't getting back together this year? From The Spice Girls and Westlife, to Avril Lavigne and Jojo dropping albums; we now have no idea what year it is.

Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes are somehow relevant again, and we're pure delighted that our pre-teen treasures are making a return.

News has just hit that The Jonas Brothers are making a comeback too, and we genuinely can't handle any more of this.

The band broke up back in 2013 citing "a deep rift within the band" and "creative differences", and the boys went their separate ways to pursue their own careers and love lives.

31-year-old Kevin randomly launched a business career after his E! Reality show Married To Jonas was cancelled, participating in The Celebrity Apprentice. 

Now he co-manages the JonasWerner development company, a social media influencer firm The Blu Market and Yood, the food app.

26-year-old Nick, the youngest JoBro, released two successful solo albums, starred in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and got married to Priyanka Chopra. Everyone fell in love with them as a couple.

It seems like Nick did the best out of the lot, we all had a bop to Chains, Close and Jealous. They were absolute CHOONS.

According to Us Weekly sources, the brothers will rise from the ashes like a beautiful phoenix as JONAS.

They've ditched their chastity belts, so they also have to ditch the 'Brothers' and 'The' in the name to prove their serious musician-status. Gas.

Their reunion will reportedly result in new music, their first since 2009's Lines, Vines and Trying Times, tour dates and even a documentary. The band's Christian image must still be garnering fans from somewhere…

Nick has been liking tweets about the reunion, and The FADER noticed that their Instagram account has been reactivatedJONAS have yet to make an official announcement, but we've got our eyes peeled.

Kevin told Us in 2018 that he and his brothers often play music together and this summer, Just Jared reported sightings of the trio working on a project.

The countdown is officially on for the final season of HBO's hit show Game of Thrones. 

The fantasy franchise, which is based on the George R. R. Martin book series, has fans in a FRENZY awaiting the return of their favourite (and most likely doomed) characters.

The season eight cast list how now been leaked by HBO and there's a very noticeable key player missing from episode one, according to metro.co.uk.

The broadcaster unveiled which of our token loved ones wil be popping up on April 14, as Westeros comes together (let us pray) to fight The Night King.

They may have to sit tight, as Vladimir Furdik, AKA The Night King and leader of the white walkers, is ABSENT from the season eight premiere, but don't relax yet.

It's been almost two long years since the season seven finale, and there are just six episodes left to go until we see who sits on the Iron Throne. There will be plenty of action, with the Night King or not.

Season seven saw the army of the dead blasting the wall down with their new phantom ice dragon (RIP), so we're surprised that the Night King seemingly has no feature at all in episode one.

Furdik mentioned in an interview that the biggest battle television has ever seen will begin two episodes later, so his screen time is more than secure.

He spoke to Hungarian website Sorozat Wiki and let the GOT cat out of the bag:

"In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history. Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour."

The GOT cast list has since been deleted, but two surprising faces are returning to bring joy to many fans; Tobias Menzies and Lino Facioli, as Edmure Tully and Robin Arryn. Menzies is about to star as Prince Philip in The Crown.

Entertainment Weekly somehow managed to watch filming one of the key scenes, and confirmed that some very unexpected old names are in the mix;

There are characters in the finale that I did not expect, I gradually begin to piece together what has happened in Westeros over the previous five episodes and try not to look like I’m freaking out."

Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic on April 14, get ready for the most drama you'll see in our lifetime.

Kit Harington has some intriguing information, to say the least. He KNOWS THINGS we don't; namely the Game of Thrones ending.

One of the biggest kept secrets in the entire universe, Kit has been carrying around some absolute bombs for months, and his poor wife has now been victim to the biggest one of all.

Jon Snow and Ygritte were (ARE) Game of Thrones' most tragic couple, and the real-life husband and wife are both highly invested in the show.

They're one of the cutest celebrity couples in the business, especially because their love onscreen was SO DAMN PALPABLE.

Harington has thanked the show in the past for bringing them together, speaking of how he fell in love with Rose after filming with her in Iceland.

During a radio appearance earlier in the week, Kit revealed the tension which still resides between him and his wife over the show…

Rose is a major Game of Thrones fan, considering her past role in the show. Naturally, she was curious about how the show ends, most likely since her husband is now smooching the Mother of Dragons. 

She asked her hubby how she show ends, and he (stupidly) indulged her questions. BIG mistake, Kit.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he said, “I told my wife last year how it ended, and she wouldn’t talk to me for about three days…and she’d asked!”

We're not quite sure if her reaction means that the ending is happy or tragic, but we're assuming tragic. George R. R. Martin and the showrunners are cruel men, they kill off everyone we love.

Kit Harington previously said he was satisfied with the iconic HBO series' ending, but refused to say if he was happy or sad about it. So it's 100 percent sad.

We're fairly sure Jon Snow isn't the only person to let slip TV's mother of all secrets. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, also told her nearest and dearest the ending too.

Would you tell your significant other, or parents, the finale spoilers? We probably would, TBH.

Lena Headey, Queen Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, has changed the #10YearChallenge game after posting an image of a polar bear, and now everyone feels hella guilty.

Rather than focusing on herself in terms of the ageing process, the actress instead chose to take a stance on climate change and its horrific environmental consequences.

Though her status has a LOT of cursing in it, it's understandable how angry she is considering the lack of lawmakers making vital environmental alterations.

"We don’t need votes on things that don’t need votes. We need bold INTELLIGENT leadership. WHERE THE F*CK ARE YOU ALL?" she concluded.

Lena isn't the only celebrity to focus on the environment, with Shailene Woodley posting an equally as disturbing image;

HBO has finally announced the exact release date for the final season of Game of Thrones.

Following more than a YEAR of speculation (they just love to keep us waiting, don't they?), the company revealed that the Emmy-award winning fantasy show will air on April 14 2019.

A trailer named Crypts of Winterfell was released, featuring Jon Snow, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark, and we're GASPING.

The trailer was aired just before the third season of True Detective

It was estimated that the eighth and final season would make it to the screen after Big Little Lies season two, on April 28.

Sky Atlantic is expected to simulcast and broadcast the premiere the evening after, but luckily for us, the show is returning sooner than anticipated.

Piers Morgan and Coronation Street star Beverley Callard have commented on the ‘trend’ of celebrities opening up about their mental health issues, claiming that they’re trying to make mental health disorders ‘fashionable’.

The ludicrous and disheartening beliefs of both the Good Morning Britain host and the soap star have unsurprisingly ruffled a few feathers.

More and more people are suffering from disorders like anxiety, bipolar and depression these days and the last thing we should be doing is dismissing the conversation.

We idolise celebrities. We put them on pedestals and are more than likely going to believe what they say as opposed to your regular joe.

Using their platforms to raise awareness about disorders that plague many of us is far from harmful. It’s quite possibly one of the beneficial things they can do online instead of boasting about their luxurious lifestyles and shockingly expensive holidays.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is one of many celebrities who has been an advocate for mental health in recent years, so there’s no doubt Piers’ claims angered the 22-year-old actress.

Sophie took to Twitter to express her disgust and disappointment in a series of moving tweets.

She wrote: “People who think it’s okay to make jokes about mental illness, I feel you must be lucky, because surely you don’t understand or can’t comprehend what it is like to have or know someone with an illness like this.

“Depression is the second biggest killer in affluent Europe and America. One of the greatest reasons being, I believe, is because mental illness has so much stigma surrounding it,” Sophie stated.

People are so afraid to discuss their mental health issues because of that overwhelming and unnecessary stigma. They fear being judged, laughed at and worst of all, not being taken seriously if they do discuss their problems.

Sophie continued: “If we can just all speak out about our experiences or our loved ones experiences we can help other people who suffer with mental illness not feel so alone. Let’s keep this dialogue going.

“You are not alone, you can manage your illness, and people who make fun of it are the minority… not you. You are loved and supported,” she concluded.

Truer words have never been spoken.
