Having imperfections is a part of life, we all have them. However for the glymera, it’s not only frowned upon it’s a down right crime. This is the reality that Qhuinn has had to live with his entire life. Why you ask? It’s because he has mismatched eyes. He has had one hard life and he can really only rely on his two best friends, John Matthew and Blaylock. However fate kinda has other plans for him when he (finally) figures out he really only loves his best friend Blay. Lover at Last is his story so I can only imagine what will happen but since the book comes out in March of 2013 I have some time to kill before then ;).

I have to admit, I’ve been rooting for Qhuinn from the beginning and I really want his character to be happy. I don’t have the best memory so I trusted that the temp cover would be correct…well it wasn’t. I have the eye colors as left being green and right being blue with the red ‘tattoo’ under the left eye (which was correct) which is what is on the cover, but they are wrong. *gasp* I know! Horrible fan I am, so I apologize for it and do plan on redoing this look along with Rehv. So hopefully you can look past that and enjoy! So I just read on goodreads that JR Ward said the cover is not wrong, but the original description of Qhuinn was from John’s POV so I guess I had it right, but the tattoo might be wrong then…

I’m actually done…wow I can’t believe it! I started these before I even had this blog and now I’m totally done with the series! Tohr’s book hasn’t come out yet. It’s not set to release until late March, 27th I think. The main premise is in one of the earlier books his shellen (wife) is murdered and he kinda goes awal. He leaves the other brothers for some time and doesn’t come back until he is brought to the Brother’s by a fallen angel (told you, it’s complicated ) So far we know his book is about finding new love. With his wife passed into the fade can he find new happiness while he is alive? I don’t know and the suspense is tremendous! Well I’m actually waiting for more news on some other characters but that’s a whole other post, lol. Onto the look!

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!

Payne is the twin sister of Vishous. She was kept by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, so she never really got to do anything while her brother was with their father being trained on how to fight. That doesn’t mean she’s weak though. She has watched her brother fight along with the Brotherhood and wants to fight as well. During her practice fights with Wrath, the Blind King, something goes terribly wrong and they have to find help with a human doctor. Her story is told in Lover Unleashed and is mainly about her healing process and how she finally gets to get into the field. Her cover mimics Vishous’s and is a bright teal blue. When I did the original version it was almost the exact same as Vishous’s (minus the tattoos) after looking at it for some time I really do like this one better. Enjoy!

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!
