As well as the scandalous storylines, we couldn't help but notice Phoebe Dynevor's makeup on Bridgerton. Flawless with a middle-of-the-road sheen, it's everything we wish our WFH beauty routines would deliver right now.
Bridgerton has served up some headline-worthy beauty looks - what with 'Bridgerton Brows' set to be the new 'on fleek' brow trend and Jonathan Bailey having makeup applied to his butt for a sex scene.
So when the show's hair and makeup artist, Lynda Pearce revealed the actual products she uses to created Daphne Bridgerton's (aka Phoebe's character on the show) glowing complexion our interest peaked.
Daphne's glowing look is inspired by Audrey Hepburn, in the 1950s version of War and Peace. Here's every product used to create her barely-there makeup look.

The difference between so-so makeup and great makeup is the prep work. Namely using a primer to give your makeup a base and to create a smooth, even starting point for the products you apply next.
Pearce relied on Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer, a cult behind-the-scenes primer courtesy of skin-brightening vitamin C and with a subtle yellow hue. Inspired by the old-school makeup artist trick 'banana powder' (to color-correct and set makeup), it erases any shadows or dark circles from your face, especially under lights.
Then for the foundation, Pearce applied Chanel Vitalumier Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup. "Where any extra coverage was needed I used @bobbibrown concealer. To conceal the under eye I used @yslbeauty Touche Éclat," explains Pearce.
She used a light dusting of Chanel Powder Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder to set everything in place.
"A little top tip... on set, for cheeks, I used @maccosmetics Matte to touch up areas that were shiny. This product is great for taking shine off the skin, without getting the caked look you can sometimes get from too much powder. It also allows the natural dewiness of the skin to come through."
It's rumored that Stila Convertible Colour in Lillium was the blusher of choice for Daphne's pretty flushed cheeks. That said, we're unlikely to need any help in the blush department after THAT infamous scene with the Duke of Hastings licking a spoon (which now has its own Instagram account @thedukesspoon).
