LOOKS ON BOOKS is a MEME hosted by myself Casey at Dark Readers. Its a feature of mine that combines my two favourite things makeup and books. I base my looks on the cover of the books or the characters so check it out :D

Hey guys so today I decided to base my Looks On Books meme on the amazing novel AngelFall by Susan EE. I decided to base this look on the EPIC ANGELIC book cover check it out:

Summary: It's been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels' stronghold in San Francisco where she'll risk everything to rescue her sister and he'll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

This was probably the hardest book cover to do a look on. There is so much colour, blending and woah going on it was really tricky. I gave it my best shot! So what makeup you will need for the basic look is
1. White and purple face paint.
2. brown and gold eye shadow
3. silver and black liquid liner.
4. silver or black lipstick
5. A small paint brush
6. Pair of eyelashes

1. Get a Sponge of some sort and gently start to dab the white face paint on your face, Especially around the eyes and cheeks avoid the mouth area as you want to put lipstick on.

2. Once that's done get the same sponge you used and start to gently blend the purple face paint into the white. You can use dark blue instead of purple but I liked how the purple looked more.

3. Once that is done get an eye shadow brush and dip it into your brown eye shadow. Dab the brush onto your cheeks to make brown dots. Blend it into the white and purple face paint but not to much. Do the same with the yellow and gold eye shadow.

4. Once that's done get your gold eye shadow and brush it on your eyelids. It doesn't have to be neat at all as you can see the book cover is a blast of colour too.

7. Once all your colours are blended its time to draw the wings on your eyes and forehead. Now this it can be very messy and very tricky! so all I can say is make sure your liquid liner brush has a thin tip. All you need to do is a wing like effect like the one above. A Tip is to balance your little finger on your cheek as you do it, It helps your balance.

8. Once that is done place your eyelashes and some mascara on your eyes and some black or silver lipstick and there you have it! the ANGELFALL LOOK! READ MY REVIEW FOR THE NOVEL HERE
