Makeup Book Tag

Hey all! Today I decided to do something a bit different and do a booktag! I will be doing the Makeup Book Tag! I'm going to be mixing up the questions a bit in the order in which I use my products. 

 

 

First off my bare face without any makeup >.< 

 

QUESTION 1: PRIMER

For Primer I use Wet n Wild's Face Primer. I don't know a lot about primer so I just buy what's cheap. But this product has given me nothing to complain about so I'm sticking to it. I dab it onto my skin and rub it in with my fingers. 

Pick a book that's left a lasting impression 

For me this would have to be the entire Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. These books mean so much to me and I don't think I'd be the reader/writer I am today without these books (psst! check out my Shadowhunters fanfiction here!)

 

QUESTION 2: CONCEALER 

For Concealer I use CoverGirl's Smoothing Concealer in the color Fair. I love this concealer because I feel like it blends well with my foundation. I swipe it under my eyes and in areas of my skin that are especially broken out. I then dab it in with my fingers. 

Pick a character you wish you could get rid of 

For this question I'm going to have to go with the first character I think I've ever hated in any book: Jason Grace. Yeah, he's one of the main heroes of the Heores of Olympus but I really cannot stand the guy. To me he's annoying and tries to act better than Percy...which he's not. Not by a long shot. 

 

QUESTION 3: FOUNDATION

For Foundation I either use CoverGirl's Clean Matte Liquid Foundation or CoverGirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation both in the color Classic Ivory. I'm out of the 3-in-1 so today I used the Clean Matte. I love CoverGirl's foundation because its relatively cheap and stays on for most of the day. I use a blending sponge to dab it onto my skin. 

Pick your favorite first book in a series 

As much as I have problems with the later books in this series, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is still my favorite first book in a series. This book is such a great introduction to the series and I love Celeana, Chaol and Dorian so much. I even tabbed the hell out of my copy so I can quickly jump to the points I loved so much. 

 

QUESTION 4: EYESHADOW 

For Eyeshadow I have a lot of pallets but today I used CoverGirl's (are you really surprised anymore?) Eye Enhancers shadow in Tapestry Taupe. I really enjoy this eyeshadow because its a pretty brown/gray color. It goes on smooth and stays on all day. I wish my eyeshadow brush and brush it onto my eyes, especially into my crease. 

Pick a book that has your favorite colors on the cover 

I have to pick this gorgeous cover of Pride and Prejudice. Blue is my favorite cover and this is just so pretty. I own this copy and it has its own place of honor on my shelf. 

 

QUESTION 5: POWDER

For Power (when I use it) I use CoverGirl's Clean Matte Powder in the color Classic Ivory. I feel like this powder gives me that extra clean coverage over my foundation. 

Pick your favorite last book in a series 

I don't think I will never not pick City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare for this question. Other final books have came close but COHF has reigned supreme in this category for me. It was honestly just the perfect ending to the Mortal Instruments. 

 

QUESTION 6: EYELINER

For Eyeliner I have a few different sticks of varying colors but today I used Smashbox's Always On Gel Liner in the color Fishnet. I haven't used this liner much but I like how smoothly applies and how it doesn't smudge. 

Pick and dark and mysterious book

For this one I'd have to pick With Malice by Eileen Cook. This book is sure a mysterious read, I didn't know what was happening until the end of it (and do I even know now that I've finished?) 

 

QUESTION 7: HIGHLIGHTER 

For Highlighter I use essence's contour power. I don't actually contour, I only use the highlighter. I don't know much about highlighter but I feel like this one isn't too light or dark and gives me that shine that I like. I apply this with a brush to my cheekbones. 

Pick a book that brightened your day

For this one I have to choose the Prophecy of Shadows (Elementals #1) by Michelle Madow. This was the first book I read after a really long reading hiatus and really put me into a much better mood afterwards. It also got me back into reading. 

 

QUESTION 8: BLUSH 

For Blush I use a this coral-colored blush in a big combo pallet I got from Ulta Beauty. I like this blush because I feel like its not too pigmented and gives me that right level of blush. I apply this with a brush below my cheekbones. 

Pick a book with come cringe-worthy romance

I have to choose the romance in Betrayed (House of Night #2) because I cannot stand the love crap in that. I'm only continuing on in the series because I like the idea of the books but I cannot deal with the romance. 

 

QUESTION 9: MASCARA 

I have four different mascara I rotate between depending on the day but today I used essence's I <3 Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara. I really like this mascara because it makes my lashes look so long and thick. For the most part, its also not super clumpy and stays on all day. 

Choose a loooooong book 

I've been waiting to mention this book...A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I think this book is my favorite of all time. It just gave me all the feels and I literally loved how far the story went from the beginning of the novel to the end. Please, fangirl with me about it, please. 

 

 

QUESTION 10: EYEBROWS

For Eyebrows I use the lighter brown shade in the same pallet my blush in in. I don't normally do my eyebrows but when I do I use this shade. Since I've only used this a handful of times I'm not sure how much it compares to other shades. I use a brush to apply this and the brush out my eyebrows with an eyebrow brush. 

Pick a book you think everyone should read 

No Ordinary Star by M.C. Frank. This book is honestly so epic and amazing, I love it so much and I think anybody who picks it up will too. It's a futuristic science fiction novel that honestly such a fast-paced read. Everyone should pick up this book...now. 

 

QUESTION 11: LIPSTICK 

For Lipstick I have a lot of different ones but I've really been enjoying lately Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in the color Pink Sand.  It isn't too pigmented and doesn't smudge which is really important. Also, I feel like it stays on for a while and reapply it is hassle-free. 

Pick your favorite book kiss

I've mentioned Shadowhunters so many times in this tag already but to this day my favorite kiss is the Midnight Flower kiss in City of Bones. That kiss...I just love it so much. I won't say who it is because of spoilers but that ship is just my otp and the kiss is perfect. 

 

Aaaaaaand finished! 

 

Thanks for checking out this tag today and feel free to do this tag if you want to! Have a wonderful day and happy reading!

TMI vs TID Tag
The Mortal Instruments Boxed Set (The Mortal Instruments, #1-3) - Cassandra Clare
The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel; Clockwork Prince; Clockwork Princess - Cassandra Clare

Even though I should be reading and working on book reviews, I'm gonna do this tag. In the spirit of Lady Midnight's release on Tuesday (and also the release party I'm going to!) I wanted to do something Shadowhunters related...and this is it! The original video can be found here.

 

1. Favourite main character: Clary or Tessa?

In all honesty, I think it would have to be Clary. Since I started with TMI first I fell in love with Clary first and she'll always be my favourite. There was actually a time in TDI that I didn't like Tessa but I love her now.
2. Favourite Herondale: Jace or Will?

Do I even need to think about this? Jace. Jace is my bae. I love him so much. He was one of the first fictional characters that I fell completely in love with. I love him so much. Don't get me wrong, I love Will as well but Jace <3
3. Favourite love triangle: Simon/Clary/Jace or Will/Tessa/Jem?

Will/Tessa/Jem. Cause I really hated the Simon/Clary/Jace one because Clace was otp and Climon was, and always will be, notp so I really felt nothing during Climon scenes except frustration. The Wessa/Jessa (JESSA FTW) triangle gave me so many feels. I couldn't even choose who I wanted her to be with for like the first book. And then I chose Jem and just so many feels! 
4. Better Villain: Sebastian or the Magister?

Sebastian, obviously. I love Sebby's build up and the Magister...I barely even remember him. 
5. Better army: The Dark Army or The Clockwork Army?

The Dark Army, basically for the same reason as the question above. I barely even remember the Clockwork Army.  And Sebby is leading the Dark Army. That too. I just think that TID didn't stick with my as much as TMI did. 
6. Better First Book: City of Bones or Clockwork Angel?

City of Bones, obviously. TMI is one of my favorite series of all time. I loved the first book so much I think I read it it only a couple of days. It was a rollercoaster of feels the entire time. Clockwork Angel, yeah I enjoyed it immensely, but I enjoyed CoB a lot more. 
7. Better Female Sidekick: Isabelle Lightwood or Cecily Herondale?

Isabelle Lightwood because no one can beat Izzy. She's kickass and amazing and I love her so much. And Cecily...she's in it for like two seconds compared to everyone else and I don't know. I don't dislike her, I like Cecily but I can't even compare her to Izzy. 
8. Better Setting: The New York Institute or The London Institute?

I think I actually have to say the London Institute just because I love London and England so much and NY seems so boring in comparison. 
9. Better Last Book: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

City of Heavenly Fire. Just...it was one of the most amazing books I have ever read in the world. I loved CP2, so, so much but it doesn't even compare to COHF. 
10. Better Final Epilogue: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

Before COHF came out, CP2's epilogue was my favorite thing in the world because JESSA. I just...it was so perfect and I was screaming. Then COHF happened (and 500 pages in one night. Oops.) And the wedding. And Jem was there. Jace is a Herondale. He plays the piano. Tessa and Clary talk. Jem steals Church. It was the greatest ending to anything I could ever imagine. It will always be my favorite. 

 

That's the end of this tag! Thanks for reading! But I'm not done talking! The Lady Midnight release party is happening at the Grove in LA. And I'm going! I didn't realize how big of thing it was going to be! Cassie is going to be there, signing books. And like everybody from the tv show except Alberto and Matt (sadly). It's going to be amazing and I'm so excited. And I'll definitely blog about it here!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2014-06-01 15:51
City of Heavenly Fire book review.
City of Heavenly Fire - Cassandra Clare

The last book in The Mortal Instruments series is finally upon us and I loved it. I believe Cassandra Clare is very good at ending book series and leaving her readers satisfied.

 

I loved the introduction of the new characters, Emma Carstairs and the Blackthorn family and from the moments with them in the book I cannot wait for The Dark Artifices series.

 

I feel like everything that happened in this series was nicely wrapped up and although I feel like I do want more from these characters I am totally satisfied with what I got. 

 

I honestly thought that this book was going to be more heartbreaking and that may be because we given little bits of information that sounded as if the book was going to destroy us. There were only three times where this book made me cry and those times were when Sebastian died, when Magnus was going to give up his life, and when Simon lost his memories. Also I think there may have been a slight eye watering when Simon's memories were restored because he remembered Clary and that was important to me. 

 

I kinda felt that with Sebastian death we got to realize that the real Jonathan Morgenstern didn't even have a chance at life. I mostly felt bad for Jocelyn because you got to see that it must of been really hard for her and it pumped up my hate for Valentine. 

 

One death I didn't feel bad about though would have to be Jordan's. I feel like the lack of reaction from Maia made me feel like it wasn't that important. 

 

I would recommend this book, or well the whole series. Everything written by Cassandra Clare is fantastic.
