Cover Cosmetics: Angelfall - Susan Ee

Hello and welcome to this week's Cover Cosmetics! Cover Cosmetics is a meme that we host here at We Live and Breathe Books in which I take inspiration from a book cover to do a makeup look. This week, to commemorate the release of World After by Susan Ee, I'm doing a look inspired by the cover of the first book in the Penryn & the End of Days series, Angelfall. I really loved Angelfall (reviewed by Marlon here), and I can't wait to read World After!

The cover:

The makeup:

I knew the cover of Angelfall was pretty but I didn't realize how pretty it was until I looked closer for doing this makeup look. The cover is composed of a beautiful mix of gold, bronze, steel blue, and darker blue, which I wanted to incorporate into my makeup. The colors don't show up as well as I had hoped in the photo, but the makeup shifts from a gold-ish/copper-ish to brown on the lid and from a steel blue to dark blue in the crease.

  1. The end broke my heart. … O so may are damaged, so much hope is lost and the horror that the angels wreck on the world had my skin crawling.

  2. Angelfall is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic novel full of cheeky characters and frightening antagonists. Penryn is one of the most fearless protagonists I’ve ever come across and I cannot wait to read the final two book in the series.
