I have to tell you guys something. It’s not a secret. In fact, I’d like to scream it: I AM UNASHAMEDLY OBSESSED WITH THE DIABOLIC by S.J. Kincaid!! If you haven’t read it yet, you REALLY should (if you don’t believe me, we have an extended excerpt available until November 21st—experience its amazingness for yourself)! It has everything that I’ve ever wanted in a book. There’s an awesome futuristic setting, intriguing technology, a strong female protagonist, beauty bots, a little romance, a lot of fighting, and enough cleverness to keep you thinking and guessing the whole way through! I know I’m not the only one who hasn’t been able to stop thinking about the book, and that’s why the Riveted team has come up with this awesome galaxy look inspired by The Diabolic. I very much like to wear my obsessions, whether through outfits, makeup, or hair styles, and now I can go out and channel my inner Nemesis wherever I go! The best part? If anyone asks about my makeup, it’s the perfect excuse to talk about the book!
Step 1: Prime your skin. This minimizes the appearance of pores and ensures that your makeup stays in place.
Step 2: Prime your eyes with eye shadow primer. This is very important because without eye shadow primer, your makeup will crease and wear off quickly!
Step 3: Start your eye shadow! Pink, blue, purple, and white are the key colors here. I used a combination of blending brushes and eye shadow brushes to create the appearance of fluffy space clouds.
Step 4: Using white face paint (or eyeliner) place little dots and stars across your face to complete the galaxy look.
Step 5: Pencil on some eyeliner to properly define your eyes. Use as little or as much as you’d like!
Step 6: Using color correcting concealer, you can hide any spots on your skin that you don’t want to show.
Step 7: Blend on your skin color foundation or concealer to create a uniform look.
Step 8: Highlight your cupid’s bow if you’d like to add an extra bit of shimmer.
Step 9: Apply lip gloss or lipstick
Step 10: Add glitter!!
