Geeky Girl Glam: Hermione at the Yule Ball, Part I

When I asked my sister Jenna to be the model for this tutorial, she was thrilled. Then, after a moment’s thought she said, “How can I be Hermione if I’m so brown?” She was, of course, referring to her deep tan complexion, and I thought this would be a great way to illustrate one of the driving forces behind Geeky Girl Glam. This is not a costume series, it’s a personal style series. It’s not about becoming someone else, it’s about being inspired by characters we love. Emma Watson is stunning and stylish, but no one owns the exclusive rights to a rosy holiday glow. You wear the makeup, the makeup does not wear you.
