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.

Let's not lie to ourselves here, every single one of us will bawl our eyes out during the last season of HBO's iconic fantasy show, Game of Thrones.

How could we not? Any character who has survived up until now gets a medal, to be fair, and our favourites could die at any second.

The visual effects, the romance, the betrayals, the wars, THE DRAMA. *swoons* Kit Harington, Jon Snow himself, recently spoke to GQ Australia, where he revealed how difficult the final season was to film.

It made Harington cry more than once, but according to the protagonist and infamous member of the Night's Watch, the show "seemed to be designed to break us." Same here, Kit, same here.

"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–king tiring," he divulged to GQ Australia.

"We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, ‘Right, I'm f–king sick of this'," he added. We'd crave our beds too.

"I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, ‘I've had enough now. I love this, it's been the best thing in my life, I'll miss it one day—but I'm done.'"

Co-creator of the show David Benioff explained that the lengthy delay between seasons is because of how monstrous a job it is to get the episodes made, especially with the immense visual effects.

"The final season's taking a long time because it's the biggest thing we've ever done," Benioff said backstage at this years Emmys.

"It was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or actually shooting it. I think when people see it, they're going to understand why it took so long. The last season is far beyond what we've ever attempted before."

Richard Pepler, head of HBO, commented he's seen rough cuts of every episode of the final season. Lucky b*astard.

"It's a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I'm watching a movie,'" Plepler told Variety at a Golden Globes party.

"Benioff and D.B. Weiss knew the bar was high. They've exceeded the bar. I've watched them twice without any CGI and I'm in awe. Everybody's in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production."


A post shared by Kit Harington (@kitharingtonlive) on

Details are still pretty (Ned) Stark, however we do know that the BIGGEST Game of Thrones battle ever will take place, and allegiances are shaky AF as the White Walkers march onwards. 

The final season is set to debut in April 2019, and Harington can't wait to release it;

"And that weight is off my shoulders. It's done now. I can be proud of it. We've got eight seasons, and they can sit on a bookshelf at home 'til the end of time," he said.


2019 means a lot of things to many people.

However, for Game Of Thrones fans, it means the final instalment of the show is finally here.

In April of this year, our fave characters will be back on our screens as winter arrives.


A post shared by gameofthrones (@gameofthrones) on

HBO has now released a teaser for season eight and it looks glorious.

Amongst a number of trailers for their 2019 shows, you can spot clips of the upcoming series.

Notably, we see Sansa meet Daenerys Targaryen (skip ahead to 39 seconds of the video below to see all the GoT action). 

In the snippet, Sansa tells Daenerys that: "Winterfell is yours, your grace," – EEK!

It appears from the relaxed tone of their exchange that they could be unaware that the Wall protecting them, is nothing more than a puddle now.

As the White Walkers approach with their ice dragon, we imagine all the politeness will go out the window and panic mode will set in.

WE CAN'T WAIT, roll on April.


There has been heightened anticipation for the arrival of the final season of Game of Thrones.

Fans have grown obsessed with George R.R. Martin’s fantastical drama series, so when we heard we had to wait nearly two years for the final season, it was heartbreaking.

And what’s not to like?

Dragons, kingdoms, usurpers, powerful queens, wars, sex…and Kit Harington of course.

But to hold us over until we can see his gorgeous face again, the HBO series has announced some exciting news

GOT is currently wrapping up its last season, filming in remote, scenic locations in Northern Ireland and plans to share these iconic sets with the public.

Which means us peasants will be able to visit Winterfell and Westeros, re-enacting some of our favourite moments on the show.

The filming locations will be converted into tourist attractions following the series’ end.  So, not only will we be able to see these legendary sites in person, but we will be able to view them in all their GOT glory.

“Each site will exhibit displays of costumes, props, weapons, set decorations, art files, models, and other production materials.

“The visitor experience will be enhanced by state-of-the-art digital content and interactive materials which will showcase some of the digital wizardry the series is known for”, HBO recently announced.

Does this mean we can fulfil our Khaleesi fantasies and regally ride dragons across the lands? We hope so!

“While fans have seen the stunning landscapes, coastlines and mountains in the series, we are thrilled they will now have the opportunity to fully experience the charm of Northern Ireland and immerse themselves in to the world of Westeros,” said John McGrillen, Chief Executive of Tourism NI.

These confirmed locations include Winterfell, Castle Black, and King’s Landing.

I, for one, would love to re-enact the death of snivelling King Geoffrey or witness Tirian’s hilarious antics before he fled his family’s kingdom.

The current opening date is set for sometime next year. So stay tuned for any updates and start getting your favourite costumes for some amazing GOT insta pics.


She's the mother of dragons and everyone has to bend the knee to this bad b*itch.

Daenerys Targaryen is one iconic character. 

And now, Emilia Clarke has honoured her and her time on the hit series, Game of Thrones, by getting inked.


A post shared by @emilia_clarke on

Taking to Instagram, the actress posted a picture of three dragons tattooed on to her wrist. – and we ADORE it.

Emilia's time on the programme has come to an end, as the next and final series is due to be released next year. 

So, it doesn't come as a surprise that she has now chosen to pay tribute to her role.


A post shared by @emilia_clarke on

The caption of the photo reads: "MOD 4 LYFE!!!!@_dr_woo_ made sure this mamma ain’t NEVER forgetting her babies…"

Emilia recently opened up about her fear ahead of the highly anticipated eighth season: "I get sleepless nights over it," she told Elle.

"Oh, you’re gonna mess it up. It’s the last season, and it’s going to go wrong," she added. 


A post shared by Lauren Winzer (@laurenwinzer) on

The 31-year-old isn't the only member of her crew to have a tattoo in dedication to the TV show.

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark has a direwolf with the words "the pack survives."  

Maisie Williams also has a neck tattoo in relation to her character on the show, Arya Stark.

She had "No one" inked which references her training in season five to becoming a faceless man.

The temptation to get some GoT ink is real.



So no spoilers here but we all saw that episode of GoT last night right? 

The episode left us shook, and we had a hankering for some unique, Game of Thrones inspired products. 

After a quick sift through Instagram, we came across these amazing lipsticks Daenerys would definitely wear. 


A post shared by @storybookcosmetics on

Storybook Cosmetics is giving us all the Game of Thrones vibes with their latest product development, an epic set of dragon egg lippies. 

'INTRODUCING our Storybook Cosmetics Dragon Lipsticks! These lipsticks are inspired by all of our fire breathing friends, and will be available FALL 2017!'

'IMPORTANT! These are our own original creations, they are not sponsored, endorsed or incensed by any other existing literary or visual WORK,' reads the official announcement.


A post shared by @storybookcosmetics on

So they might not be official GoT merch, but we're loving the Westeros aesthetic. 

The lippies are set to launch around the New Year, so we'll be adding them to our Christmas wish lists. 

Time to get your Khaleesi on.


Like the rest of the world, we're obsessed with Game of Thrones at the SHEmazing HQ.

We waited with bated breath for the arrival of season seven, and now that we're catching up with the goings-on of Westeros, our minds have already wandered to the final season of the iconic show. 

The eight season is currently being written, and HBO programming president Corey Bloyes has revealed that it may be a while until we get to see the finished product on our screens.

When asked by Entertainment Weekly if GoT's final season could be as late as 2019, Bloys confirmed it was a 'yeah.'

'Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule,' he said.

'We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.'


A post shared by gameofthrones (@gameofthrones) on

Bloyes also quashed rumours of five potential spin-off shows. 

While he admitted that there were four or five ideas for spin-offs in the works, he hoped that through careful curation, GoT writers would whittle them down to one amazing concept. 

He also let slip that the spin-off also would not be hitting screens until long after the final season has aired. 

'That’s not what’s going on. The idea is not to do four shows,' he told Entertainment Weekly.


A post shared by gameofthrones (@gameofthrones) on

'The bar set is so high that my hope is to get one show that lives up to it. Also, this is a long-term plan.'

'Our No. 1 goal is the seventh season this summer and getting the eighth season written and aired.'

Until then, we'll be binge-watching season seven. 


It's safe to say Game of Thrones has a pretty hardcore fanbase. 

The hugely popular fantasy series has captivated audiences across the globe, and the latest trailer has left fans shook.  

The seventh season returns this July and according to the trailer, ''The great war is here.''

In previous years, the series has kicked off around April, but this year fans must wait until mid summer to get their fix. 

The penultimate season will contain just seven episodes and will feature a cameo appearance from Ed Sheeran.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, show-runner, Davis Beniff said, “For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come’.” 

“Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it.”

The seventh season of Game of Thrones begins on July 16.



We're all mad about Game of Thrones here at the Shemazing! HQ, so when we heard there was a very specific college course on the subject, we got excited.

The Dothraki are arguably one of the most interesting clans in the TV series, so it's no wonder that there is now a line of academia you can pursue to find out more about their intricate language.

Image result for game of thrones yay gifs

The Linguistics of Game of Thrones and the Art of Language Invention  is a brand new course at UC Berkeley. 

The three-part course will run over the summer, and will be taught by David J. Peterson who invented both the Dothraki and Valyrian languages for Game of Thrones.

He plans on teaching the students how to build a language from the ground up, and use the Dothraki tongue as an example. 

'In this case, students are going to be learning how to create a naturalistic language,' he said.

'These are languages that attempt as nearly as possible to replicate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of natural languages, those that have evolved naturally on Earth,'

Where do we sign up? 


United Airlines found themselves in hot water this week after a distressing video emerged of a man being dragged off a flight against his will.

The man was asked to leave the airplane before take-off as the flight had been overbooked. When he refused, a police officer forcibly removed the man, leaving other passengers in shock at what they were seeing.

The video has been shared around the world and thousands have expressed their disgust at how the situation was handled.

The footage even proved too much for Game of Thrones creator, George R.R. Martin, the man responsible for some of the most gruesome and deadly scenes to hit out TV screens in decades.

The author is not usually known for his social commentary, but on Tuesday morning George called for the resignation of Oscar Munoz, United Airlines CEO, on his LiveJournal blog.

"I don't often comment on current events, but the story about the passenger that United Airlines beat bloody and dragged off a flight — for no reason but to accommodate some of their own deadheading employees, and despite the fact that he had a ticket that he'd bought and paid for and was doing nothing but sitting peacefully in his assigned seat — has me seeing red," 

The CEO finally apologised for the incident in a statement posted to the company's official Twitter account on Tuesday.

He wrote: "Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologise to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard… No one should ever be mistreated this way." 

Shares in United Airlines dropped 3.8 per cent following the release of video and it's hard to see how the company will move on from this appalling incident. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!

Taking to Instagram, Storybook Cosmetics shared a mock-up of what the potential collection will look like, and it's pretty damn good.

The highlighter takes inspiration from the the Iron Throne, with it's high metallic shimmer and multi-sword design, but we're blown away by the intricate fan brush.

The brush handle takes the form of a Named Sword, inspired by the shows Valyrian steel versions.

The eye shadow palette is also set to mimic the actual Game of Thrones novel, and the lipstick shades take their inspiration from the show's noble houses.
