Star Trek Discovery

Star Trek Discovery

Space – the final frontier… Trekkies the world over are all champing at the bit, impatiently waiting for the return of Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery, which is scheduled to be back on the air starting January 7. In the meantime, we’ve decided to share with you some great makeup tips inspired by the characters from this series.

Taking place ten years before the original series unfolded (yes, yes, the one from the 60s), Star Trek: Discovery immerses us in the midst of a war in outer space between the Klingons and the United Federation of Planets, including the crew of the USS Discovery.


The first nemesis in the series, T’Kuvma, is the Klingon warrior responsible for uniting together the Klingon Empire, and that’s saying something! Chris Obi brings this character to life on the screen, and under a lot of make-up.

For a similar look, we suggest using either Primal MYSTIQUE or Primal WEREWOLF III lenses.



First Officer of the USS Discovery, Saru is also the first Kelpien to join Starfleet. Played on the show by actor Doug Jones, Saru is a bit like the Spock of Star Trek: Discovery, or Data if you’re more of a The Next Generation fan.


To reproduce Saru’s look, we suggest using either Primal SUPER HERO or Primal UNDERWORLD lenses.

Now you know how to copy both T’Kuvma’s and Saru’s looks. Good luck with the makeup, and above all: Live long and prosper !
