FaceBookIt: Makeup Inspired by ‘American Gods’ by Neil Gaiman

by Elaine Zapanta

It’s summer, so I’m thinking of creating a makeup look based on a book with adventures. Most YA books I’ve read are somehow adventure-y but I finally settled on something that’s not only considered a summer read (probably because it’ll take you all summer to finish it) but also, in my opinion, one of scariest/strangest road-trip stories I’ve ever read. It will give you the creeps, and I mean it in the most intriguing way.

So. American Gods by Neil Gaiman, to summarize, is what happens when a person believes in something, truly puts belief and faith into something, and that faith and belief manifest into a physical entity representative of that belief. Get it?

I don’t know how else to describe it without being spoilery. But best believe when I say it’s the kind of adventure that will leave you wanting more.

And just like the previous FBI, you can now watch the tutorial on YouTube!
