ACOWAR Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Friday, 28 April 2017
I've been in the biggest blogging slump for the past few months, but I'm back now with a new book inspired makeup tutorial because ACOWAR comes out this Tuesday. 

So this is the cover of A Court of Wings and Ruin. 



It's so beautiful I could cry. That's why I wanted it on my face. Enjoy!

What you'll need is whatever basic skin perfecting things you use (so like foundation, concealer, etc.), eyeshadow (I used shades from the Naked palette by Urban Decay, and the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye palette for this look), a nude-ish blush, highlighter, and a terracotta nude liquid lipstick (I used Lolita from Kat Von D/my fav liquid lippie).

Step One:
Prep your skin for the fun part by using foundation, concealer, etc. 


Step Two:
Put an eyeshadow primer on because we want this to last all day while we binge read all 696 pages of ACOWAR. 



Step Three:
Put a translation colour that works for your skin tone in your crease, and blend. 



Step Four:
Put a mix of dark green, and black in your crease + outer corner, and blend. 


Step Five:
Take a cream shadow, and place it all over your lid.


Step Six:
Put gold eyeshadow all over your lid, and blend it into the dark green on the outer corner. 


Step Seven: 
Put grey eyeshadow on your lower lash-line, and charcoal eyeliner on your waterline to match Feyre's grey dress. Also put some of that cream eyeshadow on your brow-bone to clean everything up a bit, and a light gold shade in the inner corner to lighten things up. 


Step Eight:
My favourite part: EYELINER!! You want a nice cat eye with a bold wing just like the Illyrian soldiers. 


Step Nine:
The easiest step: Mascara. Apply generous coats until you're satisfied with the volume and length. 



Step Ten:
Repeat steps 2-9 on the other eye.

Ta-da! The eyes are done. 



Step Eleven:
Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. 

Step Twelve:
Highlight your cheek bones, tip of your nose, and your Cupid's bow until your glow is so blinding, it could blind (spoiler for ACOMAF) Tam the Tool. 


Step Thirteen:
Apply your liquid lipstick to your lips because you want it to be long lasting, and not come off when you're eating those snacks while reading ACOWAR. 


Now you're done!! Time for the obligatory final look shots!



I hope you enjoyed this makeup look, and maybe actually try it. (Sorry that my instructions suck. It's hard to describe what I'm doing in words.) Also how cute is my penguin sweater? It's from Forever 21 in case you were wondering.
