and guest writer Juvy Ann Lazo of Plump Cheeks

Hey, Cheer Readers! Welcome to FaceBookIt, a section where we come up with makeup looks based on our favorite book covers. Check out previous looks here!

But let me first introduce myself: I am Juvy from Plump Cheeks and I am super excited and thankful to be invited to do FaceBookIt with Elaine here on bookbed. Now let’s get the ball rollin’!

The theme for this month is Crossroads and the book I chose to feature is They Call Her Dana by Jennifer Wilde.

I chose this book because the main character, Dana O’Malley, had to overcome several different crossroads on her way out of poverty before discovering the secret of her birth.

I read the book years ago but it remains to be one of my favorites (and probably the thickest book I’ve read, too!). I never imagined myself reading a romance novel set in the 19th century and actually liking it. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as well if you plan to add it to your reading list.

Anyway, as a collaboration post, Elaine and I will be sharing two (yes, TWO) looks with you: one for the Day and one for the Night.

Elaine is in charge of the Day look. Let’s see what she’s come up with in her video.

Also, this Rimmel London Provocalips 16hr Kiss Proof Lip Colour in Heart Breaker is a must-have if you want to achieve this look. I am super in love with the shade! My nighttime look would be incomplete without this!
