halloween zombie makeup

Last Sunday was the season premier of AMC series, “The Walking Dead”. That was the first episode I had watched but we were instantly hooked and inspired… for Halloween.
My friends and I were invited to a Pre-Halloween party appropriately entitled, “Night of the Living Dead”. So I did some research online for makeup tutorials to go all out, but without breaking the bank and having to make a trip down to a Halloween/costume store. I found the perfect video on YouTube: “The Walking Dead Zombie make-up tips for Halloween” by The Walking Dead’s very own special effects makeup artists.

 

After studying this video carefully, I went to Ralph’s supermarket to purchase unflavored gelatine (US$1.49), white cream makeup (US$0.74), and then to Walgreens pharmacy for basic halloween face paint kit (US$6.99) which came with 6-color palette, fake blood, blood spray, black & red grease crayons, etc. So in total, I spent less than $10 for more than enough makeup for four zombies. I think have enough left for another round! Try for yourself 🙂

**I could not find liquid latex, even at the beauty supply store in my neighborhood. If you really must, go to a costume store.

sainsbury’s eco-friendly milk bags

The UK supermarket giant, Sainsbury’s have come up with eco-friendly milk bags as an alternative to plastic milk bottles. By changing the packaging, it can also save consumers a few extra pence each time. I reckon this should be done here in the United States, ASAP, considering people purchase a lot of milk (thanks to the wondrous selection of cereals!). And if you’re in California, you get charged extra for bottled/canned goods – therefore, it would be a great idea to save money and be environmentally friendly.

*hint hint* US supermarkets! get on this now!

fruit flavored snacks

I went to Ralph’s Supermarket last night and found this “fruit flavored snacks“… I don’t know, I just got excited! It’s RALPH’S BRAND! You’d think a major generic food brand would have manufactured it but it’s a supermarket brand.
