I 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 the 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 what 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.
Now for the finishing touches! On the top lashes I used the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, and 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.
