Violet Eden seems to have it all: a great guy, an amazing BFF and the glowy, gorgeous looks of an angel. Literally! Violet is a Grigori—a seemingly regular girl who also happens to be half angel.
In the new novel Embrace
by Jessica Shirvington, we meet Violet as she enters a dark and dangerous new world. Now, we’re spilling all of Violet’s secrets, from what it really means to be a Grigori to the tricks for pulling off her ethereal look.
After a first kiss with her crush, Violet’s 17th birthday couldn’t be sweeter. But when her crush reveals an unbelievable secret: They both belong to a race of half-human, half-angel hybrids. Suddenly, Violet is questioning everything she’s ever known. As temptation rises in Violet’s dark new world, she’s torn between two loves and two futures—and the decision could cost her life.

Get Violet’s look
There’s a battle going on in the world of the Grigori: light vs. dark. Violet is torn between the two, but her look reflects a pretty mixture of both. She pairs fresh, dewey skin and cherub cheeks with bold accents on eyes and nails for a vibe that’s totally fierce—and totally one of our favorite looks. Here’s how to score it for yourself…
* Luminous skin
Begin by pampering skin with an SPF moisturizer, then use a luminous primer to achieve an all-over glow. Next, brush powder highlighter or bronzer along cheek hollows to shape your face and add extra radiance. Finish with a swipe of blush to keep your look bright.
* Lush lips
Lips look lovely in a creamy, powder-pink balm that works overtime by adding moisture and color. At night, up the drama by layering on a berry lip stain.
* Amazing eyes
A soft black eyeliner smudged across the lashline accentuates eyes and adds a touch of smoke. If you’re craving color, violet shimmer shadow adds pop. Finish with luxe lashes by adding an extra coat of black mascara.
