The Makeup Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday(52)

I found this tag on Kayla Justice, so be sure to head over and check out her answers as well! I really loved how she included her favorite makeup product along with the book so I’m going to be doing that too, I mean this is all about makeup AND books after all!

I do have reviews for most of these up if you’d like to read my full thoughts!

Primer – Pick a book that left a lasting impression.

Nyx Angel Veil Primer & Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

I absolutely love using this NYX primer because it not only holds foundation well but really smooths out the face too, I could easily just slap this on and be done!

“Stormdancer” is also easily one of my favorite fantasy books it has pretty much every element I look for in a perfect fantasy book. Action, world building, and next to no distracting romance! It left a lasting impression because of all of those things too, it was just TOO GOOD!  If you love fantasy this is one I definitely recommend.

Foundation – Pick your favorite first book in a series.

Maybelline Dream Cushion & Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

My skin is actually pretty clear so normally I’d use a powder foundation because it’s quicker but when I have time I absolutely love to use this cushion foundation because it’s also pretty quick. It also lasts for a while and goes on with no hassle.

This may be cheating since the third book hasn’t come out yet but I didn’t enjoy “Gemina” (the sequel) nearly as much as I did “Illuminae” so I think it’s safe to say it will remain my favorite first book in this series.

Concealer – Pick a character you wish you could get rid of.

Maybelline Master Conceal & Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I like this concealer because not only is it full freaking coverage but you also use the tiniest drop for big areas so a tube lasts a long time

Sorry, not sorry but Celaena drives me nuts! If I could get rid of a character it’d be her! If you brag about being literally the BEST assassin of all time, ever then you need to prove it and not spend all your time complaining, mooning over boys, and obsessing over clothes and shoes.

Powder – Pick your favorite last book in a series.

e.l.f. HD Setting Powder & Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

Setting powder is something I’m not really picky about but I prefer a solid powder over a loose powder and e.l.f. is cheap!

I’m notorious for not ever finishing series, period. So the pretty obvious pick is of course The Deathly Hallows because I thought it was a fantastic end to a wonderful series!

Eyebrows – A Book you think everyone should read.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade & The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Hands down my favorite brow product and I now refuse to use anything else ever! It fills them in perfectly and its quick and easy too, the Soft Brown matches my eyebrow coloring exactly.

Everyone should read The Hate U Give! Everyone! Not only is it an important and very powerful book it’s also just a wonderful, perfect book that I truly enjoyed reading! Go read it now!

Eyeliner – Pick a dark and mysterious book

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Liquid Eyeliner & Night Film by Marisha Pessl

I’m not too terribly picky about eyeliner and this one works well enough so…..

If there is one book that comes to mind that is both dark AND mysterious it’s Night Film. It’s eerie, suspenseful, and at times downright horrifying! If you looked up dark and mysterious in the dictionary of books a picture of Night Film would be by both…seriously.

Mascara – Pick a Long Book.

Pacifica Dream Big Mascara & And I Darken by Kiersten White

Mascara is another thing I’m not super picky about but I love Pacifica Dream Big for two reasons: 1.) you can twist the wand to have it be longer or shorter and 2.) it has unicorns on it!

I’ve read plenty of long books so I’m just going with And I Darken because it was longer and awesome the entire time.

Blush – Pick a book that had a cringe-worthy romance.

Becca Cosmetics Blushed With Light Palette Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman

Becca blushes are amazing and the only ones I have are in this trio palette so I’m going with all of them, so much pigment!

I’ve read many cringe-y YA romances in my day but one that really takes the cake is the one betwen Edward and Anne in Blackhearts. I just…..can’t even begin to explain because the whole book was awful for me as well but the romance was so trope filled!

Highlighter – Pick a book that brightened your day.

Colourpop Highlighter in Monster & My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

Image result for colourpop highlighter in monsterImage result for my lady jane book cover

I like all highlighters for the most part, I’m like a bird, attracted to shiny, glittery things. I like the Colourpop highlighters because they’re very pigmented and creamy and the shade Monster is duochrome so it’s really unique.

My Lady Jane is probably the most guaranteed book to brighten your day becaue it’s so light-hearted, fun, and silly! Those words describe it perfectly and it’s just such an entertaining read!

Lipstick – Your favorite book kiss.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Viper & And I Darken Kiersten White

Colourpop lipsticks are amazing! The Ultra Matte Lips dry down and don’t come off and I personally don’t find the formula drying at all. I also just loooove this shade, so pretty!

I spent the better half of this book shipping Lada and Mehmed and waiting for them to kiss, so of course it’s one of my favorite book kisses. It takes a really well written romance for me to ship it too especially in YA!

        The book cover for TOG is calling to me though. I want to buy a physical copy of that book so bad, even if I dunno if i’m going to read it, which would be a waste. 😢 Anyways, great post hun!! 🙂

    I love The Deathly Hallows, it’s my favourite end of a series and also my favourite Harry Potter book. 🙂
    Whenever I see the cover for And I Darken I get exited about it and want to read it. That might be because I love the cover combination, or it might have to do with the fact that I have heard amazing things about it! XD I really can’t wait to get my hands on it.

      I literally could not think of a series ender I loved more than The Deathly Hallows, I’d say it’s my second favorite Potter book because Goblet of Fire is my all time favorite!

      I really love both And I Darken covers, the US and UK versions are both really pretty and actually represent the book very well. It’s also just flat out a great book, I really think you’d enjoy it and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! 🙂

    Deathly Hallows is definitely an amazing end to a series. And I’m still waiting for a copy of The Hate U Give from the library.

      Deathly Hallows was the only series ender I think I loved, mostly I find the ending books in a series to be more lacking. I hope you get that copy of THUG soon, it’s an amazing book! 🙂


      • ashley April 24, 2017 / 1:34 pm

        I just got the notification that I can get it at the library!
