Getting Dressed with Phoebe Tonkin

The Australian actress invites us to her room as she prepares for a night out with Chanel in Los Angeles.

Actress and girl-about-town Phoebe Tonkin plays a vampire-werewolf hybrid on the CW’s hit supernatural show The Originals. “I’m usually covered in blood and dirt and screaming at an imaginary vampire,” she reports of her on-set life. Tonight, however, she’s an entirely different creature, albeit still a supernaturally beautiful one. The Australian-born Tonkin is in town for Chanel’s dinner celebrating the new No.5 L’Eau fragrance—and she has invited The Violet Files to chronicle her getting-ready process.

This evening, Tonkin’s hair and makeup A-Team, coiffeur Christian Wood (he is also hairstylist to Tonkin’s friend and VG contributor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) and Chanel Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua, are running the beauty show, while the actress gamely shares her beauty insights (and other tricks of the trade) between lash curlings and blush applications—among her many talents, Tonkin has mastered the art of speaking intelligibly while having lip pencil applied to her cupid’s bow. (She also reports that coconut oil and Crest toothpaste work wonders for removing the faux blood that’s a regular part of her workplace beauty uniform.)

As she’s frequently traveling (she lives in Atlanta, where The Originals films), Tonkin’s pre-event beauty prep often begins in midair. “When I fly, I use something called the Humidiflyer that facialist Melanie Grant told me about,” she says. “It’s like a mask that makes you look like you’re in the hospital and everyone laughs at you, but it keeps you moisturized in the air and prevents jet lag! Before an event I like to drink a lot of water and then a juice. I went by Moon Juice earlier and had a Golden Tonic—I added their Beauty Dust to it and shook it up. In the morning I have herbs from Sun Potion with Ashwaganda, which is meant to be good for stress. I also picked up an SK-II mask at the VIOLET GREY store to give my skin a boost—it’s still in my hair a little! It also works for removing fake tans,” she adds. Read on for more behind-the-scenes details…

SUBJECT: Phoebe Tonkin
OCCASION: Chanel No.5 L’Eau dinner
TEAM: Kara Yoshimoto Bua, Chanel makeup artist; Christian Wood, hairstylist
GETTING-READY SOUNDTRACK: Foxygen and Tame Impala— “I love a good Aussie band”
PRE-GAME BEVERAGE: By day, water and Moon Juice’s Golden Tonic with Beauty Dust and QuintEssential Optimum Mineralization shot, a natural energy formula. “It tastes like sea water,” Tonkin reports. “My real pre-game drink is probably Campari.”
IDEAL DINNER DATE: “Friendly, funny, and British.”
OUTFIT: Comfortable-chic Chanel sweaterdress and pumps. “I haven’t worn heels since July, but I feel like this is the kind of night where it seems like the right thing to do.”



“I wanted to complement the dress with a fresh, clean beauty look,” says Yoshimoto Bua.

“I prepped Phoebe’s skin with Rosewater Glycerin and Chanel Le Crème Yeux, which I love because it doesn’t have any scent,” she continues. “Then I mixed two foundations: Chanel Vitalumière Aqua 10 and 40. For a bit of contour action, I used a blush brush to sweep Chanel Les Beige 40 back and forth in a C shape along and under her cheekbones and all the way up to the temples. I finished with a pop of powder blush in Caresse and Chanel Natural Finish pressed powder in natural to set it. I focused on a strong brow and a little smoky eye with Le Volume mascara—a favorite on lashes—and dabbed just a little bit of a reddish plum color on the lip so it doesn’t compete.”



Tonkin showed hairstylist Christian Wood a reference image of a previous style she had worn and hoped to replicate—a sleek, slicked-back ponytail. “I wanted clean and modern for the hair, and a hair ribbon, which is sort of a signature – I went to an all girl’s school and always wore one,” the actress explains.

“I used a big brush from Mason Pearson, and water and a little bit of gel that I combed out about four inches from the root to give her that sleek look,” says Wood. “I brushed her hair into a low ponytail and straightened the ends. Then I wrapped a piece of velvet ribbon around it and left the ends loose to make it feel more carefree. Last, I sprayed some hairspray on my fingers and went around the hairline to tame little baby hairs and flyaways and applied serum to the mid-lengths to keep it smooth.”



Phoebe was torn between a slinky gold lamé slipdress and an embellished long-sleeved cashmere number in camel, which she ultimately determined to be more her style. Although the actress normally favors flat boots and sneakers, “this is the kind of night where it is appropriate to wear heels,” she says of the navy Chanel pumps she selected for the occasion. “It’s nice – it signifies getting dressed and making a good impression. I like a simple pump, something that isn’t going to turn me into Bambi.”





Sorry it’s taken this long to get screencaps up; Amazon was having some MAJOR stocking issues and I still don’t have a copy of the bluray yet. In the meantime, I’ve added DVD quality screencaps, and I will add bluray quality some time next week. I’m also currently having problems with the second disc of the DVD, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get the deleted scene from 3×10 uploaded until I receive the bluray.

Also, due to a recent incident, I would like to remind people that other Phoebe related fansites and fanpages do NOT have my permission to take these screencaps or any screencaps and upload them to their galleries. If you notice any other sites uploading our screencaps, please contact me through our site email or on twitter.

Hello, everyone, as you can see we have new themes for our main site and gallery. For the first time in the history of Phoebe Tonkin Web, we have a Hayley Marshall/The Originals themed look. Phoebe just looked like such a goddess in our header picture that I had to have a theme based around it! I hope you love it as much as I do! I hope you also love our new gallery theme as well. Both were made by the incredibly talented Margos. 😀

Save Lives with your Lips

Pink Hope’s annual #BrightPinkLipstickDay campaign is empowering everyone to have a conversation regarding their family health history… because with this knowledge you have the power to take control of your health.

We are encouraging families, friends and colleagues to sign up to host a Bright Pink Lipstick Day Fundraiser. Not only are fundraisers a great way to get people together but the funds raised through this campaign enable Pink Hope to invest in critical lifesaving programs and support services.

Pink Hope’s Mission Statement:

Pink Hope is a preventative health organisation working to ensure every individual can assess, manage and reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer, providing every family the support they need.

Their mission is to provide tools and information to help the general population “know” their risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Provide support and information to members of the at-risk community to help them appropriately manage and navigate their risk. Work collaboratively with healthcare providers to ensure a better transition for at-risk women as they move through each key touch point of their journey. Promote open discussion around family health history in the general population through targeted campaigns and education. Encourage at-risk women to be vigilant and proactive with their breast and ovarian health, resulting in a much earlier diagnosis and better treatment. Advocate for at-risk families.

On Friday @Daydream (a convention promoter) confirmed Phoebe will be attending Vampire Attraction in 2017.
