Guest Bloggers: Anya Breton & Lily Element

This month's special guests are not only special but a little quirky. Inasmuch as we love reading here at Talk Supe, we love girly stuff too from fashion to make-up to nail polish!

So we invited our friends, Mel of Lily Element and Indie Author Anya Breton to share their girly obsession! 

They run a beauty blog together and their latest project, Nailed at Night, is one of my newest obsession and here's why.

For those of you who don’t know us, we’re two gals obsessed with books and make-up. Melissa is a book reviewer with a penchant for beauty samples. Anya is an erotic romance author with an obsession for nail polish. Today we’re combining our two favorite things to bring you our picks for our favorite characters and the make-up they’d use… if they were real (ohmigosh, we wish they were!)

Rachel Morgan – The Hollows
The first is Rachel Morgan from the awesome Urban Fantasy series "The Hollows" by Kim Harrison. Rachel is a kick-ass day-walking demon witch on a budget. Leather is her go-to outfit for work.

Make Up: I honestly picture Rachel going without make up in most cases. If she has a hot date or has to crash a fancy party I think she'd probably wear a cheap yet pigmented lip stain (so she won't have to reapply) like Revlon Just Bitten.

Mani: Rachel’s ley line mani is done with Sinful Colors polish at a bargain $2/bottle in “Sugar Sugar” and “Secret Admirer”.

Miriam - Miriam Black Series 
Next we have Miriam. She’s an in your face character that doesn’t hesitate to be herself. The series involves crows/ravens as you can see on the cover so her mani had to reflect that.

Make Up: For Miriam, I picture her wearing a lot of MAC's pigmented products. Stolen of course. But we don't condone that kind of behavior. If she has to purchase things herself, I picture her with Wet N Wild make up from the drug store.

Mani: Miriam's mani can be achieved by using China Glaze "White on White" as a base coat and free handing birds with black sharpie.

Camille D’Artigo – Otherworld
The half-human, half-fae Camille D’Artigo of Yasmine Galenorn's "Otherworld" series is our third pick. She's a badass witch that has a love for corsets and sexy lingerie.

Make Up: I've always pictured Camille with a sultry smoky eye using MAC eye shadows, and pairing it with a deep red MAC lipstick.

Mani: Get Camille’s corset nails using these colors: China Glaze "White on White" as a base for the nail. Maybelline Color Show "Amethyst Ablaze" for the corset. The grommets are Essie "No Place Like Chrome". And the laces are ORLY "Liquid Vinyl".

Samantha Avira – Alpha Exposed
Air witch Samantha Avira from Anya’s erotic romance "Alpha Exposed" is our fourth pick. This conservative caterer lets loose with a hot weretiger Alpha. Sam is into neutral colors that won’t draw too much attention to her away from her amazing food.

Make Up: Sam is the kind of woman that loves neutrals. The Urban Decay Naked 2 eye shadow palette suits her. It has the perfect range of colors that work for day and night. Plus, the double-ended brush means she has one less brush to carry.

Mani: Sam’s grey ombre has just a hint of naughty to it. Achieve this mani by using these polishes: ORLY “Decoded”, Ombre tips are ORLY "White on White". The tiger stamp color is Essie “Penny Talk”. Use Bundle Monster plate BM-223 for the tiger stripes.

Cassandra Palmer
Pythia Cassandra Palmer from Karen Chance’s books is our final pick. Cassie has a lot on her plate and is always fighting for her life but she can clean up well when she wants to!

Make Up: Cassie seems more of a high end make up type of gal. I picture her with Benefit Hervana blush, Benefit They're Real Mascara, Urban Decay Perversion eye pencil, and tarte LipSurgence lip luster.

Mani: Get Cassie's mani with these colors: Julep “Jessica”, ORLY “Sweet Peacock” for the stamp and a hint of ORLY "Liquid Vinyl". Use Bundle Monster plate BM-321 for the stamp design.

Thanks ladies, you both are awesome! 
I wish I have your creativity, I'm really super jealous!
