You guys have probably had an inkling of this, too. I do my fun little character lookbooks for FTF / AIA; I reviewed fairy tale themed makeup; and though I don't post them here, on the vlog channel, I do have videos devoted solely to all this glorious, glorious *stuff*.
So, as I mentioned in my 2015 Mission Statement, one of my goals this year is to break down the barriers on the blog, and bring more of my personality as a whole (and not just as a book lover) into this whole shebang, and since this is a big part of who I am (and because, as you may know, I am a color coder), I thought I'd do occasional posts with makeup and nail polish picks to go along with my pretty, pretty books. (And since one of my smaller goals of the year is to get more use out of my camera & build my picture-taking skills (ie learn all the damn SLR has to offer), this is another ✔ to check off!) If you're like me, you can love the book porn/color porn/makeup porn aspects of the pictures, and if not, well... there will be a brand new post up tomorrow, hope to see you then!
So here is the first of my random BookLooks posts, and much wordier than they will generally be. I wanted to give you a bit of an intro, but in future, we'll jump straight to the good stuff! (And it's probably no coincidence that all of these first round of picks tend to be my favorite Spring colors... out with the winter blahs, in with the winter brights!)
|I love all of the slightly different shades of aqua mottled together in the cover of Cat Patrick's Revived, so I thought a few variations on aqua (which, clearly, I love. This didn't make a dent in my aqua collection...), sponged over a white base would be a great nod to the book — and a speckle of black at the tips, if you can bear to break up the color!|
Featuring Revived and Studio M 'Age of Aquarius,' China Glaze 'Too Yacht to Handle,' and PaintFab 'Teal the Show.'
|Well, hello there, my favorite color...|
Featuring The Sky is Everywhere and Zoya Mitzi
|There's nothing I love more in the dead sameness of winter than adding the BRIGHTEST pop of color I can find, and since the film version of The Duff will be coming out soon, it seemed like the perfect choice to shake up the winter ho-hum humdrums.|
Featuring The Duff and Studio M 'Infusion,' Julep 'Abbie,' and Color Club 'Blue Ming.'
So, does anyone else get a giddy little thrill when their nail polish (or lipstick!) matches the book they're reading? Or do you think I'm totally crazy?
(It's the little things, man. I'm tellin ya.)
