The Zodiac Collaboration Week 2 – The Age of Aquarius & Makeup Zombie

16

I realize this is very, very early on Friday Morning… But if you want the reason this is posted so late, it’s at the bottom of this post. I had wanted to get this up much earlier- but I just didn’t have any “fight” left in me today, and motivation was about as fast moving as frozen molasses.

Aquarius (?) (Greek: ????????, “Hudrokhoös”) is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius. In astrology, Aquarius is considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four fixed signs.[3] Aquarius has been traditionally ruled by the planet Saturn, and, since its discovery, Uranus has been considered a modern ruler of this sign. Being the eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius is associated with the astrological eleventh house.

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Aquarius individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Aquarius roughly from January 20 to February 19.

Zodiac Symbol Water Carrier
Duration (Tropical, Western) 20 January – 19 February (2011, UTC)
Duration (Sidereal, Hindu)[1] 12 February – 2 March (2011, UTC)

Zodiac Element Air

Anyways- this is my collaboration look to coincide with Wendi’s from Makeup Zombie. We’re continuing out weekly collaborations of themed looks… This marks is the second week in the Zodiac cycle. Using Hi-Fi Cosmetics 2011 Zodiac Collection mineral eye shadows, we’re creating our own looks without telling the other what we’re doing. Without any further ado- I give to you Aquarius.

On my Face:
Gel to Powder anti-chafe gel
Nyx Color Correctors in Yellow, Lavender, and Green
Nyx Concealer in Porcelain
Meow Cosmetics Purr-fect Puss Foundation in Siamese Inquisitive
Fyrinnae Glow Blush in Evocative high on cheekbones
e.l.f. Mineral Shadow in Angelic over Evocative for highlight & sparkle
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Light 021

On my Brows:
Wet ‘n Wild Coloricon White Kohl Eyeliner
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Whites were blended and brushed in brows to even out and lighten
Kiss N Makeup Mineral Shadow in an unreleased color

On my Lips:
Wet ‘n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in 901B
e.l.f. Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips

On my Eyes:
My Beauty Addiction’s Shadow-Poxy Eye Primer
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Hi Fi Cosmetics 2011 Zodiac Collection Shadows:
Age of Aquarius- Light sparkling aqua; all over lid and into inside 1/3 crease
Goodby Pisces- Rich, vibrant blue; outside V, blended in to make an almost cut crease across top of AoA
Dark Star Capricorn- Rich, sparkling brown; applied to lower lash line and waterline
Linnaeus Cosmetics Kalahari (nude shimmer) on brow bone
WnW MegaPlump Mascara in Black; 2 coats on top lashes only

I am wearing FreshLook ColorBlend contacts in Eden. They are reflective shimmery lenses which emphasize the “ring” around your eye (defines it as a darker color) and gives the hint of blue-green you might catch in some of my pictures. Not many blue-eyed gals have success with these lenses, but I love them because of their subtlety. They look pretty amazing on darker eyed people- but I still love them just the same! It’s the reflective quality I adore the most!

Taaa-daaa!
I am the water bearer… And so is Makeup Zombie! You must remember to check out the look Wendi has done this week over on her blog. :)

What do you think about this week’s look?

I’ve been working like a fiend for the past two hours to edit these photos you see… As some of you might know, yesterday I had a doctors appointment. It didn’t go so well- and although I was in some pain, I asked my doc to try and do an adjustment on me. Well- we certainly tried, and the end result was me in tears and him absolutely baffled that I’m right back up on the tenderness and “stay completely off your feet!” stage again. My eyes are obviously very puffy, as you can see in some of the pictures… It drives me batty.
Two steps forward, five steps backward. It’s frustrating.

I had called it an early night Wednesday night, but today was more feeling bound up, spasms, kinks and generally not being able to move. I’m also noticing if I bend over just the right way, I get “stuck” in place until the severe spasm lets go after anywhere from 5 seconds to almost a full minute. Additionally, the pins and needles sensation is coming back often- which typically means I’m going to fall. Thankfully, neither yesterday or today I’ve had it happen. All this, of course, leads to me needing to take the pain medications I have… Which of course… Puts me to sleep. So today was a crying fest and napping mania despite all the things in a list I needed to get done. Major fail, and I’m so sorry.

      It’s hard to work with blues sometimes! Even more so if it’s a color one is a little timid about using…. Aquarius is great, Pisces… WOAHHH! BLUE!
      And I’m with ya… I loved my lips! hehehe

    I love the matching crease and brows, so cute!

    I’m sorry you’re in so much pain, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all better :( *hugs*

    • SnarkyPrincess

      Why thank you ;)
      They’re two totally different colors… But they matched somehow in the sunlight which I thought was pretty funny!!

      Thank you as well… Sometimes I think I’m just in a bad dream and will wake up one of these days and be “alright” again… And one day I will!!!
