Hello Readers, Today I am going to be trying something a little different. I am going to be doing the Makeup Book TAG. I am going to be doing it a little different as I am going to be doing more of makeup routine post with the TAG questions. I will try to add links to the products if I can find all of them. I do want to add that I am not a professional and it has taken me a long time to build up my makeup collection. I did post a makeup book TAG back in 2015 which if you would like you can check out here. I am going to try to describe my favorite eyeshadow look, however, it is kind of difficult to explain with words. I hope you enjoy none the less.
1. Primer: A book that left a lasting impression on you
Book: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, This was my favorite book I read last year it was amazing. It might just because the movie is coming out soon but I just can’t stop thinking about it.
Products: E.L.F. Cosmetics Eye Refresh
Physician’s Formula #InstaReady Face Primer
Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer
2. Foundation: Your favorite first book in a series
Book: Graceling by Kristin Cashore, I loved this series as a whole it was amazing,
Products: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
3. Concealer: Some characters you wish didn’t exist
Book: I believe that most books you even if I hate the character if you got rid of that said character the story wouldn’t be the same. However, one character that I absolutely hate is Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter Series.
Products: Tarte Shape Tape
4. Powder: Your favorite last book in a series
Book: To be honest, I have talked about this before, but I haven’t finished most of the series that I have started so my options are very limited. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling would probably have to be favorite wrap up of a series that I can think of right now. I LOVED that there was an epilogue because I always want to know what happens after the story ends.
Products: NYX Studio Finishing Powder (I don’t often use this powder as I use a powder foundation. Sometimes if I try cream or liquid foundation I will use this powder though)
5. Blush: A book with a cringe-worthy romance
Book: Honestly, I love most romances in books. I am a hopeless romantic so I am not going to pick any couple for this question.
Products: Bare Minerals Pressed Blush in Elation (I cannot find a link to this and I think it is because I got this in a gift set for Christmas)
6. Highlighter: A book that brightens your day
Book: I am going to pick When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon because I just loved it so much.
Products: Bare Minerals Illuminating Mineral Veil (I use this when I want a subtle highlight if I want a more glittery highlight I will use my Swamp Queen Palette)
Other Face Products used: Buxom Total Fixation Set & Refresh Gel Face Mist (I also cannot find a link to this and I am not sure where to look for it because I got this as Christmas gift as well)
7. Eyeshadow: A book with your favorite colors on the cover
Book: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco. My favorite color of all time is purple and blue and I just really like the purple on this book with the gold details.
Products: Morphe 35F Fall into Frost Palette (One of my favorite looks is red and gold smokey eye I use shade number 1 all over the lightly blending up. I deepen the outer corner into the middle crease with shade number 2, I deepen it even more with shade number 4 focused on the outer corner only. I then use shade number 3 in my inner corner blending it towards the black. I go over shade number 3 with Sassy Bun from the Swamp Queen Palette)
Tarte Swamp Queen Palette (I can not find a link to this product. As I believe it was limited time only. I did also want to mention that Gator Wings is my favorite highlighter ever and on the rare chance I wear bronzer I will wear Sweet Tea)
8. Eyebrows: A book you think everyone should read
Book: Again, I am sorry but I am double dipping. Everyone should read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. IT IS SO FREAKING GOOD!
Products: Morphe 35F Fall into Frost Palette (I use shade number 5 to fill in my eyebrows and then the clear gel pictured below)
9. Mascara: A long book
Book: I am trying not to pick Harry Potter for every question, however, the last couple books in the series are SOOO long but I love them so much.
Product: Maybelline’s The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara
10. Eyeliner: A dark and mysterious book
Book: I don’t know why but while I was thinking of a book for this question I kept coming back to The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I think it is because I have so many questions about the story.
Products: NYX Professional Makeup Vinyl Liquid Liner
NYX Professional Makeup Super Fat Eye Marker (I am most likely not wearing eyeliner, but if I am, I am most likely wearing the Vinyl Liner)
Other Products Pictured:
Maybelline’s Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara (I use this after filling in my brows, I use the clear one which cannot be purchased online. I get mine at the grocery store)
11. Lipstick: Your favorite book kiss
Book: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen, Sydney and Mac, I ship them so hard!
Products: NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia
NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Cream Lipstick in Biker Babe (Lip color in the photo below)
NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in French Maid (I obviously don’t use these all at once but these are some of my favorites)
