Order of the Phoenix Inspired Makeup Look


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)

I would say this was one of my favourite Harry Potter films, there was just so much going on!  The book however was a complete nightmare.  I loved reading the books because it was in Hogwarts and it followed Harry, Hermione and Ron during their time there, and I guess I could relate more to this because I was in school, and so were they, and life was all good.  Until this book came along.  It just went on and on and I got up to about the 4th chapter and they still wen't in Hogwarts?!  I got so bored and I wasn't interested in all the other stuff going on so I stopped reading.  Months and months went by until I thought i'm going to give it another go.  I couldn't put the book down, and as soon as I finished I read the next one in about 2 days, and the other in another 2 days.  That whole week was Harry Potter mad for me and I was totally submerged in the books.  My whole family were thinking what is going on, because I like to read it the most random positions ever.  My favourite place is probably the stairs, but I also love reading upside down, is that strange?!  Maybe that way the information goes into my brain quicker? Or I'm a complete loon and need medical attention.

I have always loved the idea of a Phoenix rising from flames, and I loved the way the Phoenix was portrayed in the film, of it reaching a certain age, turning to ash, then being reborn.  This is something I can really relate to.  I often go through stages of feeling quite destructive and when it reaches a certain point I try and reinvent myself for my own sake and sanity.  I guess this is how Vanity Nightmare at the Movies was born!
