Hey guys so today I decided to base my Looks On Books meme on the amazing novel Unhinged by A.G Howard. The Sequel to Splintered.

Summary: Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head

This was so fun to do. The stuff you will need for the basic look is:
1. Purple and white face paint
2. Purple and green eye shadow
3. Purple Lipstick
4. eye lashes
5. Black Liquid eyeliner
6. Small Paint brush

1. Apply some pale foundation or a foundation lighter than your skin tone on your face then start to blend the purple eyeshadow on both your lids.

2. Once that's done get your thin paint brush dab it into the purple face paint and start to do swirls from your waterline running down your cheek like the picture above and the book cover pic. Try to make it as neat as possible.

3. At the ends of the swirls add a white dot or a green dot in the middle of the circle just to add a flowery effect.

4. Get you black eyeliner and from the inside of your eye lid draw a line and flick it at the end just under your eyebrows. Its gives an effect to make your eyes look bigger!

5. With your black eyeliner draw a small circle above your cheek bone and then draw 3 lines coming out from each side of the circle, so it looks like you have a spider on your cheek.

6. Once that is done get some purple lipstick apply it onto your lips and then on your bottom lip put some silver lipstick in the middle and blend.

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! The UNHINGED inspired book cover look!

 You guys can get Splintered the first in this series HERE in the UK. Make sure you look out for Unhinged COMING SOON!!!

I need you to come do my make-up for World Book Day next year - I'm doing an Alice in Wonderland theme (I also want that wig) :)
