*cricket* Hey I guess I’m not dead! Yay! Anyway so as I was thinking of Twilight themed makeup I could be doing I was really at a loss. I couldn’t think of enough looks to really recreate more than one thing so I kind of stopped doing anything. I was really upset that I hadn’t been creating anything and so I took some time to go through some of my past looks and I really didn’t like my brows when I did most of the Black Dagger Brotherhood looks so I redid some of them. First up is Butch. His book is Lover Revealed and it’s the fourth in the series. Butch is a human cop but his aggression and attitude didn’t really help him fit in with the rest of the human world. After some prophecies, and plot progression we find out that Butch is related to Wrath, the Blind King, so in turn they perform a ritual that helps Butch’s vampire blood come out and so on. In the end he becomes a vampire, yay! Yeah it’s kind of complicated since they don’t ‘turn’ people into vampires, like in other stories.

The cover of his book is bright orange (really?!) And the accent is white. So when I redid this one I wanted to be more daring so I tired a cut crease and I really like it. I’m actually very proud of this one 🙂 and since I’m re-reading his book I’m kind of liking him more. Anyway, onto the makeup!

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 never really noticed how hard it was to use yellow on my skin without it looking like I was sick. I used yellow as a blush and I don’t think you can even see it really. I did once use yellow and brown together for a Hufflepuff look and I really loved it so it sometimes does look ok on me. Well I hope you all enjoy it and my hair trials are coming soon 😀

Second is Yellow.
It represents youth, fun, happiness, sunshine and other light playful feelings. It is a cheerful energetic color. Yellow is often used for children’s toys and clothes. Though yellow is a bright cheerful color, as it starts to darken it, however, quickly becomes a dirty and unpleasant color. Yellow can also be associated with being scared and, cowards.

Orange, it’s Breann’s favorite color and the next in my color series 😀 Sorry that all of this has taken so long, But I’ve been trying to do something with hair too, so I really want to do a curler review/ what gets the best results so it takes some time since I really don’t want to curl my hair every day. Anyway, onto the photos, and I really need to stop watching Game of Thrones….my hair in these photos was right after I finished the first season so I was very much so in a Sansa Stark mind set. Enjoy!

Second is Oranage.
It represents fire, the sun, fun, warmth and tropical images. It is considered a fun light color that has appetizing qualities to it. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Any design relating to the tropics, something fun, easy going and youthful should incorporate some type of orange into the design.

See! I’m here!! I promise, not dead. So a while back I really wanted to do another series of makeup looks. When I have a set to do I’m more proactive in completing them. So this series has to do with color. I love all colors, I think you can use any color but they all have a time and place. This way I can use all of them!

First is Red. Red symbolizes: action, confidence, courage, vitality.
