From what I’ve heard from friends and family (who have read these books) they identify with John Matthew the most. Maybe it’s just me but he’s not my favorite nor is he anywhere near the top for me. He’s not my least favorite character by any means he just didn’t strike me. Which is probably why I had such a hard time recreating this look. My original was really not viewable because I didn’t use the right colors, nor did I have any other makeup on. So my eyebrows were all crazy and my lips were chapped and my face was washed out and pale. I have an idea in mind for the next collection I want to create so I need to finish the Brothers, not that I don’t love them, but I want this next series to begin before too much time has passed. (Yes, I’m being vague) Anyway, John’s book is red just like Wrath’s so his look echo’d Wrath’s just not as intense.

The makeup used in each look will pretty much be the same, since I really only have the palettes from BH Cosmetics. But I will try and list everything used for each brother. will take pictures of these palettes some day I promise!

Rehvenge, Rehvenge, Rehvenge…what to say really? Although I did read his book, I can’t say I remember much of it. I do remember that his story is so far away from the original six (since he’s not technically a “brother”) I didn’t feel comfortable. Like I was taken away from familiar friends and tossed into a different world. Near the end though, we did come back around to the world created in the first couple of books so I was ok. Since this isn’t a review let me get to the actual point here, the cover of Rehv’s book is black. Not much to work with, so I pulled in purple. I do believe his eyes are purple (if not then I know purple is a color mentioned in his book). If I can say everything truthfully, I’m not happy with this look. This was my second attempt and it started out well but I think since I was rushed while choosing the grey/black I picked one too dark/shimmery and it looks off to me. I will try again, but I do enjoy this look do I guess this will be Rehv v.1.

The makeup used in each look will pretty much be the same, since I really only have the palettes from BH Cosmetics. But I will try and list everything used for each brother. Again please excuse the eyebrows :).I will take pictures of these palettes some day I promise!

So here I am quite a few days after the last post, thinking ‘hmmm maybe I should post something?’ I didn’t want to post everything I had right away and then be left with nothing but I do think I waited a bit too long in between my posts so I apologize for that. The sixth and last of the core brothers is Phury. Yes I know there are more characters that come later, but Phury is the last of the original six. Phury is the twin brother to Zsadist, but definitely not in personality. He is quiet and reserved. He has lived his life with the burden of knowing he is responsible for his brother’s suffering (or at least he believes so). He remains celibate for his whole life, until he takes the responsibility of becoming Primale, basically he’s responsible for re-populating the vampire race…awkward. His whole life changes in that moment and he has to finally figure out who he is, without his brother. His cover is yellow. Not a mix of orange-y yellow, just yellow so I tried to tone it down just a bit with some brown. Enjoy!

The makeup used in each look will pretty much be the same, since I really only have the palettes from BH Cosmetics. But I will try and list everything used for each brother. Again please excuse the eyebrows :).I will take pictures of these palettes some day I promise!

Phury

  • Eyes
    • NYX white eye base / E.L.F. $1 primer

  • Face
    • BH Cosmetics Foundation Primer
    • Covergirl Clean Foundation 125
    • Covergirl Translucent Powder
  • Lips
    • I wish I could remember, I didn’t think I was going to include a whole face shot. I think is was Revlon Color Burst in Blush

*sigh* So now that I’m almost done posting these past looks I’m going to have to make new ones up, aren’t I? Hmm I do have a theme in mind though. To the point, the fifth brother is Vishous. Blooded son of the Bloodletter and the Virgin Scribe (don’t ask, it gets a little tedious) he is very brutal but is also burdened with a horrible past and a special talent. His father raised him and since he had part of his mother in him (she is the creator of the entire Vampire race…told you not to ask) he had the ability to create a very powerful force-like power from his right hand. His father saw this as a danger and had him marked to let others know of the danger he was/is. So because of this he had tattoos on his face/body. Can you image little girly Vanessa trying to do a tribal-esqe tattoo on her own face at 2am? I do think I could have done better, but this was my interpretation so girly version was a go! The colors of his book are a bright blue.

The makeup used in each look will pretty much be the same, since I really only have the palettes from BH Cosmetics. But I will try and list everything used for each brother. Again please excuse the eyebrows :).I will take pictures of these palettes some day I promise!

Fourth in the Brother series is Butch. He didn’t start off like the other Brothers since he was raised human. He was a cop but had a crush on Beth who is the wife of Wrath the king. So because of this he’s somewhat involved in their world. After so after some discoveries he eventually becomes a Brother. The cover of his book is a burnt orange color so viola the look was born.

The makeup used in each look will pretty much be the same, since I really only have the palettes from BH Cosmetics. But I will try and list everything used for each brother. Again please excuse the eyebrows :).
