A Cosmology of Monsters is my favorite book so far this year, so I did a novel makeup look to match the cover. (Check out my other novel makeup looks here.)
I don’t like reviewing books (it makes reading feel too much like homework to me), and I also prefer going into books not knowing much, so I won’t say much about it, but if you enjoy horror, I definitely recommend checking it out.
For the look, I used Drip Drop blue eyeshadow from the Coloured Rain Vivid Pigment palette as well as black shadow from the Tati Beauty palette, and Sunkiss’d from the Colourpop Orange You Glad? palette on my lower lash-line. To make everything pop more, I added (Lemonhead) glitter–Private School mixed with Malibu glitter over the blue shadow, Gunshow over the black, and Commando over the orange.
For a matching orange lip, I used Em Cosmetics Long-Wearing Lip Crème in Faded Clementine. All of the makeup I used for the look is listed below (all of the products are cruelty free and vegan.)
