Clarke, 33, was one of the first big names to walk the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall wearing a slinky black, sequin gown by Italian fashion house Schiaparelli.

The couture look was complimented by the former Game of Throne’s star’s sultry beauty look, which featured slicked back hair, a dramatic smokey eye and subtle nude lip.

Clarke’s make-up was all Clinique - unsurprisingly, as the actor became the beauty brand’s Global Brand Ambassador last month.

Lynsey Alexander, the make-up artist behind Clarke’s BAFTA look said on Instagram Stories that she wanted the look to be sexy, sultry and 90s-inspired.

For those wanting to re-create Clarke’s beauty look, the entire process was a rather complex, nine-step routine.

While we definitely don’t all have time to create the entire look, we’ve rounded up all the products so you can re-create the feature of your choice, from Clarke’s sultry smokey eye, subtle nude lip or glowing complexion.
