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!

Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

1

 

Sarah J. Maas tricked me. She set up those familiar tropes in A Court of Thorns and Roses and then she hurtled A Court of Mist and Fury at them and knocked them ALL down. She did just enough with Feyre in ACOTAR that I thought, sure this is a kind of typical fantasy love story, with a typical alpha male who means well and who shows a typical lonely, broken girl peace and happiness while they save the world, but Feyre is so fleshed out! She’s got such a complete personality. She’s not just an “insert yourself here” kind of fantasy heroine. It’ll do. BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT.

 

BUT! Then she gives us A Court of Mist and Fury, and she shows us that this TYPICAL (I resist humming “Same Old Love”) depiction of romance is not necessarily desirable. It doesn't fit. It’s not good to find your strength in someone else, it’s not good to be cloistered and protected from not only harm, but living, experience, and finding someone who is your EQUAL, not your keeper/husband/protector/mansplainer.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is the book I read and loved when I was young and inexperienced and very much like Feyre when she first comes to the Spring Court. A Court of Mist and Fury is the book for me now, now that I’ve lived and loved and done things, now that I am more myself and more completely at home with myself. I know what I can do, and I don't let anyone keep me from doing it. The kind of love I want (and have, thankfully) is the love of an equal partner, someone who isn't shielding me from things but encourages me to go with, or figure out on my own, or share when I'm ready. Maas presents ACOTAR to us as if to say, “See? It’s familiar, you’ve felt this, we’ve all felt this,” and then follows it with ACOMAF and asks, “But isn’t this better?”

 

Let's Discuss!

 

Let me know what you thought about ACoMaF, if you disagree about ACoTaR, or if you just want to Rhysand fangirl with me.

ACOMAF Review
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

SPOILERS IN REVIEW:

 

On the note of pairings, FEYSAND. Rhysand is, despite always being considered the 'heartless' and 'sadistic' most powerful High Lord, he is actually very thoughtful and selfless - to the point of sacrificing his own happiness to protect those he loves - just like Feyre did for Tamlin (*shudders at name*). Rhys doesn't want to stifle Feyre's strength and lock her away for her own protection like He did... and I loved the part when he appoints her as the High Lady of the Night Court. I screamed when he announced that, mainly because Tamlin never even considered giving that title to Feyre and he shut her down when she pushed him. *angry face*

 

Rhysand, unlike Tamlin, wants Feyre at his side, as an equal, as his Mate *inwardly squeals*

 And I love that so much!

 

They had let a fox into a chicken coop

 

Future aspiring writers, remember the ending of this book; it is how you ensure that your readers will count down the days to your book's release. Though it wasn't a cliffhanger, it still ended on a very, very mean ending, in the best possible way. I've re-read the book about five times already, and still cry at the end.
