Cover Cosmetics: City of Heavenly Fire - Cassandra Clare

As you may have noticed from my Waiting on Wednesday post, I was extremely excited to FINALLY get to see the cover of City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. In honor of the cover reveal and less than 122 days to the release (I'M SO EXCITED I JUST CAN'T EVEN), I've actually created two looks inspired by the cover for this Cover Cosmetics!

The cover:

The makeup:

The top look is inspired by Clary. I used the light colors because of the way she appears in a white dress and the bright red for her hair. I also incorporated some of the (heavenly) fire at the bottom of the cover in the glitter on the outer lid.

The second look, by contrast, is Sebastian/Jonathan. While Clary almost appears pale as white, Sebastian is shadowed in purples and grays, with almost his whole face covered in shadow. I also added batwing eyeliner to mimic his wings (which I am SO interested to find out about...). I liked doing these two looks because I felt that it really symbolized the battle between good and evil that will be presented in City of Heavenly Fire. I can't wait for the release!
