Twilight Inspired Makeup

Hello!
Im sorta inlove with the Twilight saga. I mean yeah the movies are sorta shit, but thats only because the Books are sorta brilliant.
Honestly, If you havent read them, please do!! Even if you've seen both movies, the books are definitely still worth reading, you totally get sucked into the plot.
There was a time a few months ago where all I did was read the books, day after day until I finished the saga (sucks so bad! I wont ever find out how Renesme grew up! ) and I would go into town to my fav coffee shop and just read, my family and friends would be like "You going to see Edward, Bella and Jacob again?" and Im like Yeah.

Anyways!!!

Here's my interpretation of the saga.
Caution: Pic Heavy
I chose vamped up eyes, with a touch of red pigment, pale rosey-glow cheeks, and soft nude lips.
I started off with a basic base, I didnt even use a primer, Just applied Loreal Infallible Foundation, and lightly dusted it with powder using a brush similar to MACs 187 Duo Fibre Brush
Next I swept a black eyeshadow over the entire lid. I sprayed Nation Face Mist onto a Brush to make the colour more intense.
I applied my mascara now, so that my eyes were more open, so that I could adjust where I put the white eyeshadow. accordingly
I then added a white eyeshahow from just above the crease, to the eyebrow.
Then I blended (tried to - I still suck at this!! Tips???) (pictured, a smaller version of MAcs 168 Angled Contour brush).

I followed this with applying black eyeliner around both top and bottom rims of my eyes, and blending them into a thick layer.
I gentle dusted some pale pink blush over my cheeks and blended it all the way up my cheek bone. I finished off with some MAC Mineralized skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, and MACs Myth Lipstick.

You are stunning! This is such a beautiful look I love it. I was the same way with the books! lol My boyfriend would say "Do you have a date with Edward and Jacob tonight?" lol. He said I was cheating on him with them.

I love Soft & Gentle on you! Your skin is so glowy. I think I need it... do you like it?

Um, some picts came out too dark?

I haven't seen the movies, nor have I read the book. I guess I must be living in the dark ages. LOL.

My friends said they nearly cried when they read the books, so I think it's not the sort of story I like. I prefer a good old-fashioned detective mystery that doesn't make me weep. Personal preference.

I love the makeup look though. :)
