Filler Post of Awesome and Win!


Zombies!

I'm such a slacker these days. It's been too hot/humid to do anything, including putting on makeup that will just melt off my face..Plus my damn hair gets all weird when it's humid and I haven't felt like messing with it. Truth: I've been too lazy to do shit.

Anyway, I have some new goodies I want to share with you, just cause they are awesome!

First...I won a Whimsy Beading giveaway a few weeks back. I was pretty stoked to receive this stunning necklace called "Diamond Dust." Such a simple, gorgeous necklace. I adore the star at the very end of the necklace.



Almost a month ago now, I picked up the E.L.F. 32 color palette in "Bright" from Target for $5.00! Some of the colors are just stunning and pigmented, while others lack and fall flat, but for $5.00, you can't go wrong with this palette. I'll have swatches at some point.





Don't the mind the finger nail scrapes in the middle grape color. My baby son is a terror...period.



Around the same time I purchased this, I received a package from Rachael at The Beauty Spot, with the Sleek Caribbean (Curacao) palette. Unfortunately some of the shadows were smashed, but it's still a gorgeous palette and the colors are over the top pigmented and gorgeous! Again, swatches will come later.







Also, my oldest son Dade, started 1st grade this month. Look at that handsome face!


And last, I did an EOTD for My Pretty Zombie, using Epistaxis,(nose bleed) Moist, and Miasma and wanted to show you!



Also, I have reached 800 followers. I can't believe it! My giveaway is coming up very soon! There will be two winners, so keep an eye out!

I hope you're having a nice hump day! More posts soon!

!New My Pretty Zombie swatches!


Good morning Zombies!

I am awake bright and early (that's what happens when your kids are back in school!) and thought I'd get a quick post in.

I have some new My Pretty Zombie swatches for you! (Oh and that new banner on her website?! Yeah, that was me. haha)  Some of these colors are new, or new to me. Nevertheless, they are all gorgeous!











DO YOU SEE THAT MATTE RED?!?!?! 



Of this lot, 996 and Hoof and Mouth are my two favorites. But the colors are all so unique and pretty. Miasma is unique in that it's a pastel yellow with a pretty pink shift. Amazing!

So, what are you waiting for?! GO..run, get yourself some!

Taurus the BULL!: Zodiac Collab with Snarky P!


Zombies!

Welcome back to another edition of the zodiac collab with the Snarky Princess. I've been slacking and getting these up a day or even a week late, but better late than never.

I think of Taurus as the strong headed bull. Sexy and hardcore, so that's what I went for.



The Bull

Modality: Fixed
Element: Earth
Ruler: Venus
Season: Spring
2nd Sign of Zodiac

Metal: Copper
Stone: Emerald
Color: Green
Anatomy: Neck, throat

Keywords: persevering, down-to-earth, stable, stubborn, possessive, prosperous, dependable, physical, sensual

Comparison with its symbol, the Bull:


For centuries, the bull has been a symbol of strength, tenacity, virility, and power. Left alone, a bull will happily graze; but if it is bothered, it will charge! Similarly, the Taurus personality is thought to be calm and peaceful, but when their anger is aroused, their temper can be wicked. Taureans are often quite disturbed by sudden changes--they prefer their lives stable and secure.

Taureans are thought to be persevering, strong individuals, who can also be quite "bull-headed". They can be dogged and determined when they have a goal in mind. Taureans are also quite sensual and, often, self-indulgent "beasts".

The glyph for Taurus, quite simply, represents the bull's head and horns.









The Goods:

TSFI all over lid
NYX jumbo pencil in "Milk" blended into lid
Hi-Fi Cosmetics "China Shop Taurus" main lid
Dark marron with sparkle color from the WnW "Lust" palette blended into crease
Light eggshell color from same palette to highlight
Evil Shades "Acolyte" lower lash line
Random liner and mascara

Cheeks:
MAC "Dollymix"

Lips:
Revlon "Raspberry"

An added bonus picture. I inadvertently took a picture of myself looking like a blow up doll. FTW!

What Zombie Thinks.....


ZOMBIES!

Can we please go back to when everyone liked each other and this bullshit wasn't happening? It's a Zombie beg. PLEASE! I can't take it anymore. I want to buy a couple bottles of Tequila and get you all around me and take shots till we can't see straight and stumble down the street like a bunch of undead. We all need it. We all need to take a step back, take a break, and remember WHY some of us blog and WHY some of us sell awesome things to the beauty world.

I've been having some personal things going on and all this drama is too much to take. I want to love everyone cause that's what Scorpios and Zombies do. (FREE LOVE AND BRAINZ BITCHES!) So, don't take that away from me. lol

I will not take sides, but I AM going to hide from this drama until it passes over, but let's please try to make the makeup community fun again! I want to see everyone happy and glittery!

Zombies!

It's only Tuesday...BLAH BLAH! Not so much feeling it today, so let's look at some purty makeup, shall we? Today's post is brought to you by the lovely Katt from Kattatonic Fierceology! This girl knows how to rock pink lips and bright makeup. She's ridiculously gorgeous as well! <3

I’m Katt and I love Makeup Zombie, so I am SUPER excited to be doing a guest look for her.  For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Katt, just a simple girl who like many of you fell in love with the bright and beautiful world of makeup. In this look I wanted to use every thing I love about the freedom of creativity I have all over my face. The colors, the shape, liner, and glitter. This look wasn’t really inspired by anything othr then the colors in my Sugarpill pallets. And for those of you wondering where I wore this, this was actually my look for attending a Kid Rock concert, I got some interesting looks. I really hope you like what I’ve done and I’d like to remind you all to be bold, be beautiful, but always be yourself.

For this look I used some of my favorite products:

Concrete Mineral’s “Ruse”-Inner portion of brow bone/over Tako
