Cover Cosmetics: The House of Hades - Rick Riordan

Hello, all! Since going to college I've begun to post a lot less here, which is really sad to me. Unfortunately, I just can't read fast enough to write reviews with all the plays I need to read and work I need to do. (For example, I started reading The House of Hades the day it was released and I have yet to finish it. Sad life.) So, I've been thinking about something I could do to still have regular posts on the blog and then it came to me: I can do makeup inspired by book covers! Makeup is actually one of my favorite hobbies, and, since I do my makeup every day, it wouldn't take much time to do a post such as this. Basically, what I'm saying is welcome to my first Bookish Makeup post! (The name is a work in progress. None of us here at We Live and Breathe Books could come up with a clever title. If you have any suggestions for a new name, please comment!) Since we just wrapped up our The House of Hades live-blogging, I decided that it would be appropriate as inspiration for my first post!

The makeup:

I really liked the reds and oranges on the cover, but I also wanted to incorporate the dark purples into the look as well. I really like the way this turned out and I can't wait to do the next one!
