Good evening my lovelies.
Tonight I bring you the first installment of the Zodiac Signs Makeup Zombie and I will be creating each Thursday. We’re going in order, and kicking off with Capricorn. This look didn’t come out quite the way I wanted it to- but I think I still enjoy it. I really screwed up the inner corner of my right eye, and upon trying to correct it… Made a bigger mess. Hence… The left side of my face is pictured
Capricorn (?) is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. In astrology, Capricorn is considered an introvert sign. It is also considered an earth sign and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. Being the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn has been associated with the astrological tenth house. Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Capricorn individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Capricorn by definition at the moment of winter solstice, or roughly at December 21, and leaves it around January 20. Inwestern astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from January 15 to February 15.
|Duration (Tropical,Western)||22 December – 20 January (2011, UTC)|
|Duration (Sidereal,Hindu)||13 January – 1 February (2011, UTC)|
|Domicile||Uranus (night), Saturn (day)|
I think I’ll go ahead and re-do this the way I had originally envisioned it at a later time. The colors themselves are quite gorgeous- and I’m in awe at the amount of sparkle jam packed into these shadows! Wendi and I will each be using the 2011 Zodiac Collection to create our looks each week. Capricorn is a lovely dark brown, with multicolor sparks throughout the shadow. You can pick up some of the color here and there- but it really doesn’t show off how fantastic these are in real life!

And there you have it- my smokey look! If I’m lookin’ a little pink in some of these… It’s because I was mistaken this morning. I thought I didn’t get much sun, and managed to avert a burn. Well- I succeeded…. In avoiding to toast my legs to a crisp. My shoulders and face, however, weren’t so lucky. So yes- I’m sitting here alternating between having hot, burning skin and the shivers that send me into a freezing frenzy for a few minutes. Hello Aloe-Vera gel and Jergens Moisturizing Cream!
Note to self: Remember the Sunscreen IDIOT when you go to work with your sister in the morning tomorrow. *sighs*
For those of you wondering, I bought my “horns” at the Maryland Renn Faire two years ago when I had gone. In the future, I plan to go back! Of course- wearing them and a spankin new corset I now have added to my ever-growing collection of favored wardrobe items.
Don’t forget to head on over and see what Wendi has in store for you ladies… The most fun about this collaboration is we have not told, and will not tell, each other what we have in store for the week. It can be as elaborate or simple as we want… And that’s where the fun lies!
What do you think of this look?
