Book Inspired Makeup Look | Other Words for Smoke

Untitled 49.png42118080I loved this book! And I loved this makeup look! I hope this post isn’t super boring! Let me know what you think and if there’s any fun covers I should try since I keep doing the same boring ones! Okay!

So first we start with the boring stuff, the base! It might be more exciting if I owned more than one foundation and two concealers, but until I decide to spend money on something other than books we’re just gonna have to deal. We’re gonna do what I always do to start and throw on some of the CoverGirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation all over and then I used some of the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer and some of the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Concealer because the dark circles need all the help they can get. After that I set it all with the Colourpop No Filter Sheer Matte Pressed Powder and then went in with a bit of the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in the shade Fetish, which is just a super pretty lightish pink. It doesn’t add too much colour so it doesn’t really take away from theUntitled 47.png rest of the look.

Now for the eyes! Which I actually really love, I ended up finding the perfect colours to match the cover and it’s so excited. Only one of the three palettes that I used isn’t limited edition so I’m gonna try and find some alternative shadows. Should be easy. First thing I started with is the Colourpop Good Sport palette which is basically the greatest thing I own, and I went into the crease with the shade High Hopes. It’s just a warm toned light brown to give some depth. Next I used a couple light blue shades from a couple different palettes, but since I can’t find them online I found this shade, which actually looks better than Untitled 46.pngwhat I used, and that’s the Colourpop Pressed Powder Eyeshadow in Bassline. It’s a super pretty metallic light blue and it seems to match the colour of the book cover perfectly. I just put that all over the lid and then blended out the edge a little bit. Next we need a shade that brings in the bronze foil from the cover, and luckily the Good Sport palette has literally the PERFECT colour. Like I saw it and basically died because it’s so good, it a glittery bronze shade with metallic blue sparkles. I mean come on. I just put this on the lower lash line, and I made sure to put a decent amount so it really stood out. After that I just threw on a ton, and I mean ton, of my favourite inner corner highlight, the Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Tassel. It’s just white and super sparkly.

Untitled 48.pngNow for the finishing touches! On the top lashes I used the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascaraand on the bottom lashes I used a tiny bit of the CoverGirl Lash Blast Clump Crusher Mascara mostly because I’m bad at things and always get mascara everywhere when I try it with a larger mascara wand. But you know, not everyone is as uncoordinated as me so whatever works. And lastly we have the lips! This is obviously going to be a nice pink shade, since both the title and the sprayed edges are pink. I just used the Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in Nice to Fuchsia which is a kinda deep but still bright pink. It matches pretty well and looks really nice with the bronze shade, in my opinion.

So there we go! A very impromptu makeup look inspired by one of my new all time favourite books. I had a lot of fun doing this, and even though it’s super simple I like how it turned out. I ended up doing this while I was sick and obviously not leaving the house but I would go out in public looking like this so that’s pretty good for me.
