Hey guys so today I decided to base my Looks On Books meme on the amazing novel Hollow pike by James Dawson. I decided to base this look on the EPIC WITCHY book cover check it out:

Summary: Something wicked this way comes...

She thought she’d be safe in the country, but you can’t escape your own nightmares, and Lis London dreams repeatedly that someone is trying to kill her. Lis thinks she’s being paranoid - after all who would want to murder her? She doesn’t believe in the local legends of witchcraft. She doesn’t believe that anything bad will really happen to her. You never do, do you? Not until you’re alone in the woods, after dark - and a twig snaps... Hollow Pike - where witchcraft never sleeps

If you notice there are these awesome tree branches and birds flying in the background. This is what I wanted my look to be based on. Here we go:

1. Get some purple eyeshadow or cream based facepaint and lightly dab it with a foundation brush across the side of your face. You can put as much on your face as you want but I just decided to put it on half of my face and blend it into my natural colour.

2. Once the purple is how you want it, Place some black eye shadow on your eye and blend that into the purple.

3. Once that is done get a black eyeliner (I would recommend Rimmel London glam eyes) and start to work from the top of your forehead, running lines down the side of your face. DO NOT let the lines be to straight. The lines need to look like branches, so go crazy with them. They do not need to be neat.

4. Once thats done grab yourself some feathered eyelashes. I decided to use these ones because I feel they just suit the book cover so well. I get my eyelashes off ebay because they are cheap and AMAZING quality. If you're doing the same look as me I only put one eyelash on my right eye to blend with the purple.

5. Once thats done add some black lipstick and there you have it! My Hollow Pike by James Dawson Inspired look :).
