Ok so I gotta show off these nails even though I only got to wear them for about an hour before the top coat totally fucked them up. I used a white OPI polish for the base of my nail, Zoya Holly for the tree, Mini stars and microbeads. Now after I took the pics I added a top coat and all went to hell. The color on the microbead bled and made it all look awful! Lesson learned for sure!!

Ok so if I thought November's Ipsy box rocked December blew me outta the water. It came in a super cute black Patent quilted look bag for starters. Included in the bag was a stunning Julie G Textured nail polish in Sugar Plum Fairy, A Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eyeshadow trio in Smokin Hot, Some fantastic Demi lashes by Ardell, Be A Bombshell Cosmetics The One Stick in Sunset, & NYX Lipstick in shade 565.
So lets start with my favorite part the eyes....
I started with Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then I used all 3 colors from the POP Beauty trio. I added my lashes and used The Bombshell Cosmetics liquid Liner in Onyx on my top lid. On the waterline and bottom lash line I used Urban Decay 24/7 glide on liner in Black Market. I finished my eyes with DiorShow Extase Mascara.
To finish up my look for the day I used The Bombshell One Stick on my cheeks. It was the perfect shade for my pale complexion.
And the NYX Cosmetics lipstick is a nice neutral color for me to wear day or night...
And possibly my favorite item in the bag...The polish! I don't get to wear polish on work days so this is only one coat to try the color and I freaking love it! The texture is amazing!!

Woot Woot....I finally got a new camera and a chance to use it :P Me and the hubby went to see the Genitorturers the other night so I hadda come up with a rockin look to wear. You know I hadda rock the red glitter in honor of the band :)
For this look I used:
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy. This primer is awesome with glitter shadows! Get it HERE.
Fyrinnae Arcane Magic Eyeshadow in Raven's Prophecy. I used this shadow in the crease and across the top lash line. It is a black shadow packed with loads of silver and blue glitters. Get it HERE.
Next I applied Star Crushed Minerals shadow in Black Garnet. This is a stunning black base shadow with loads of burgundy shimmer. Get it HERE.
Above that I used the amazing Epistaxis shadow from My Pretty Zombie. Lemme tell you this is probably the best red shadow on the market. You can get it HERE.
Finally at my brow I used a white shimmer shadow I got from Altered Ego Cosmetics. Unfortunately she has closed but any white works for a highlight :)
Under my eye I used the Epistaxis as a liner.
On my water line I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on liner in Zero. Get it HERE
On my upper lash line I used 2 liquid Liners from Blackheart Beauty. These liners are exclusive to Hot Topic and the are way affordable! The first one is the Black Holo Glitter liner. You can still get it online HERE. Then I layered the red glitter liner over it. It seems it is no longer online but you can probably still find both colors at your local Hot Topic.
Finally I finished the look with my fav mascara MAC Haute & Naughty. Get it HERE.
Hope you love this look as much as I did :)

Ok so I decided to play today and had all kinds of fun doing this simple zombie makeup! I started with a few coats of Liquid Latex and Zombie Flesh latex. These are cheap as hell at the Halloween store this time of year. (No more than $8 a bottle.)
I used like 3 coats of Liquid latex then 2 coats of the Flesh. Make sure you let it dry between each coat. (You can use a blow dry to speed up the process :)
I added this over my entire cheek with a cosmetic sponge...
When dry it is time to add your base. Now you can use the cheap Halloween grease paint tube but in all honestly I hate those things. They just never smooth out right. So this year MAC put out an amazing Halloween line!! I used the Face & Body in White and the set powder in Invisible. Now if you are just going light for Halloween these will break the bank but for my creepy self and knowing I will use them all year they where perfect. Check out the entire Rick Baker line at MAC.
I used a foundation brush to apply.
Next take a small brush or toothpick and carefully pull out the scratch marks in the latex.
For this part I used just a bunch of cheap Halloween supplies you can find at any Halloween store.
Using a flat eyeliner brush paint the black along one side of the scratch
Using a small shadow brush (I grabbed some at the dollar store as to not ruin my good brushes) Paint the Vampire blood opposite the black in your scratch.
Now this is probably the most important item in the makeup and from this point on the realism is just achieved through layering & Blending.
The Gel blood needs to be heated before use. Submerge in a water bath and heat up in the microwave for about a minute. Apply over the entire scratch area quickly. (Mine came with a little mini popsicle type stick and this was perfect for application.)
Now as this dries it will get a bit of a gummy type texture.
Reapply a slight bit of the black paint to the same side as before. Then apply the bright red paint as a highlight opposite the black.
Dab your brush along the scratch so you don't have just a straight line.
Apply another layer of the gel blood (This does harden fast so you may need to heat it up again.)
Next I mixed a tiny bit of the black paint with the vampire blood. I used a flat eyeliner brush to bring the scratches to more of a point. (Probably not the best way to do this but hey it worked)
Next I took a "Bruise" Colored eyeshadow....I am super obsessed with this Jane Eye Zing Plum Perfect shadow cause it is just the perfect color...(I even used it for my Hubby's Mad Hatter makeup this year cause he HATES wearing makeup LOL). I used the eyeliner brush to follow on side of the scratch to make it look bruised.
Done with the scratches I moved on to the rest of the makeup.
I used a sponge eyeshadow applicator (I know shocker since I hate the things but I wanted no chance of shadow falling) To ring all the way around my eyelids and under my eyes.
Then I followed the black with a bright deep purple color....(Both colors are just from my 120 color palette from BH Cosmetics)
And completed to my brow for the sunken look with the Jane Plum Perfect....
I added Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on liner to my waterline and Cailyn gel liner in black to my upper lash line. I finished my eyes with MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara.
The lipstick is Night Sky & Cathedral from Morgana's Crypt. She has all kinds of amazing products in all colors! Night Sky is no longer available (It was a black shade) But the Cathedral really is a stunning purple Grey and looks amazing on it's own as well.
FYI...For the Freshly crawled out of the grave hair it is super simple! Mess your hair a bit and add in some baby powder near the top. No real need to brush it through but you may want to fluff or shake your hair to get rid of excess.
And of course add a retarded amount of blood cause what's a zombie without blood.
I would love to see how your results came out! Feel free to email me any looks :P
