Cover Cosmetics: Unmade - Sarah Rees Brennan

In the past week I have posted a Cover Cosmetics for Unspoken (here) and for Untold (here) in anticipation of the final book in the Lynburn Legacy. Today, Unmade has been released! In celebration of this glorious day, I have done a Cover Cosmetics for Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan! (Even though school won't allow me to read this book now. Sob.)

The cover:

The makeup:

Normally I do more wearable makeup, but for Unmade I decided to get a little more creative! I used the orange and yellow to mimic the colors of the sky on the cover. One thing I wanted to explore with this was that if you really look at the cover, about half of it is black but the orange pops out to the eye. I decided to do black cut crease to copy the sharp silhouettes on the cover and I drew the tree branches on to copy the tree branches (you definitely needed me to tell you that).

I hope everyone starting Unmade today has tissues near - I'm sure this one will be as heartbreaking as the other two!

Do you like more wearable or more creative makeup looks?
Let us know in the comments!


  1. That's so awesome! Totally wearable during the fall/halloween time of year.

    1. Thanks! I didn't even think of it that way, but you're so right - it really does have a fall vibe to it. Also very appropriate since it was the first day of fall :)

  2. This is gorgeous. I adore this trilogy and have finished an earc of Unmade some time ago. You wont be disappointed ..

    1. Thanks! And that's great to hear! I can't wait to get to it, probably during fall break or something.
