There’s a bottle of Compagnie de Provence Savon de Marseille Extra Pur liquid soap (the scent is Verveine) in the Keatings’ bathroom.
Lauren Castillo (Karla Souza) picks up some hair from Sam Keating’s hair brush – a Mason Pearson one with boar bristle and nylon tufts.
Cartier Eau de Cartier Concentrée, a citrus aromatic perfume created by Christine Nagel and launched in 2002, can be seen on Annalise Keating’s dressing table.
When I first spotted it, I thought it wasn’t the right choice for her. I expected her to wear something bold, more in-your-face, but then I realized I was wrong: the fresh note of yuzu combined with lavender, cedar, coriander, white amber and patchouli seems just perfect for her, as it’s fresh, clean and unfussy, a quiet detail in her hectic life.
Annalise Keating’s dressing table is always worth a careful look because there’s often something interesting on it. In the opening scene of this episode she puts some NARS blush on and picks a Tom Ford black-case lipstick, even if she ends up wearing a different lipstick.
The title of this episode refers to Rodion Romanovič Raskol’nikov, the protagonist of Fëdor Dostoevskij’s Crime and Punishment (1866): he kills a pawnbroker and her sister; he gets away with the double murder until he decides to admit the crime. Could it be a hint to what will happen next in the tv show?
A couple of weeks ago I binge-watched the ABC legal dramaHow to Get Away with Murder and I fell in love with the make-up of Bonnie Winterbottom (Liza Weil). It’s very similar to my everyday make-up, which means bare face and eyes but ruby red lips. The shade used on her is fantastic, so I turned to Twitter to ask the show’s make-up artist more about it. Sergio Lopez-Rivera was so kind to answer my question and revealed he uses Ruby Woo by MAC on the actress. This shade is among my favourites ever, but I must admit it looks more vibrant on Liza, probably because of her fair complexion, which makes the colour pop.
