I got randomly lucky about 3 weeks ago and was able to snag the Bronze Kyshadow on a re-stock! The next morning I got an e-mail from Urban Decay saying I had early access to the not-yet-released Ultimate Naked Basics palette. After assuming I’d never get my hands on either, all my eye shadow palette fantasies came true in the span of 24 hours! 5 days later both palettes had arrived and I was ready to play!
Because there are so many tutorials for both these palettes already I decided to do a mash-up smokey eye using all the colors, just for fun!
Let me know what you think!
If you’re having trouble getting either of these palettes, but love this color combo and want to re-create the look, I’ve linked a few of the best “dupes” for these that have popped up on Pinterest so far: See 10 Kyshadow dupes HERE and my personal favorite HERE. Two pretty good UD Ultimate Basics dupes are HERE, HERE and HERE (There aren’t as many good dupes out there for this palette only because not as many people have it to compare — I’ll update when more come out!)
You’re invited to dinner, betch. You better not be late.
Glad you could make it. But was it really ever up to you?
Now that you’re here we’ll start off with some Rosé.
It may look pretty now…
But we can’t guarantee it won’t be covered in blood…
…by the time dinner is over.
Eat up. There’s a lot more where that came from.
We’ll be serving Prune-X for dessert because you’re fat now… But somebody had to eat that betch. And you’re not leaving… until that entire bottle is empty.
Okay THAT was intense!!! Can you imagine being invited to a dinner party thrown by KKT?! We can — and this was our vision come to life! Ali Weber (of Oh La La Ali blog) and I collaborated to create the perfect Scream Queens Season 2 Virtual Premier Party! And YOU’RE invited! We’ll be live Snapping, Instagramming and Tweeting the premiere, so tune into social media September 20th at 9:00pm ET/PT to follow along and see our take on what happens!
Ali made that incredible chopped up, bloody “hand” in the fingerless glove, and it’s totally edible! Hop on over to her blog to learn how so you can plan your own Tuesday night party with this delicious treat! Make sure to invite your gal pals over for some bloody cotton ball rosé! I purchased a bottle of our favorite rosé, removed the label, and created my own DIY Scream Queens inspired label to replace it (to get that pink foil effect on the label I printed the design with a toner printer and ran it through a Minc). Next I popped some edible cotton candy on top to represent the Chanel’s favorite food group (cotton balls!) and splattered with some edible “blood!”
For props I pulled from my personal collection of home decór items and clothing everything I could think of that the Chanels might have in the KKT house, like my favorite satin robe (seen HERE before), Victoria’s Secret Bustier (see HERE before) & sleep mask (seen HERE before). Since the new Scream Queens season is apparently “Hospital” themed we decided to fill a few fake “syringes” with random candy like rock crystal, cotton candy and gummy eyeballs! The Chanels aren’t the brightest group of girls when it comes to the proper usage of food so it’s not crazily far fetched to think they might attempt to inject sugar instead of ingesting it (I mean, don’t we all wish we could skip those calories?!). The final “Hospital” touch was a fake bottle of pills (red and white candies) with a very fake looking prescription label that we could totally imagine a Chanel trying to use to poison her enemies. We found all our supplies at Michael’s, Amazon, Party City, Kroger & Target.
It’s almost time for my favorite TV show to start it’s second season! I’m talking about Scream Queens! Who else has been waiting for this?!
Fellow blogger babe, Ali (of OhLaLaAli) and I are such huge fans of Scream Queens that we created our own version of what we imagined this season could entail! We’ve teamed up to serve a particularly warm dinner party. From blood spattered drinks to severed hands, one of our guests met an unfortunate end! Better hope the Red Devil doesn’t get you next! Between now and September 20th we will post more pieces of the puzzle to social media with the major part of the story happening exclusively on our blogs! You’ll have to visit both mine, and Ali’s blogs, to get the full story and we promise it’s totally worth the suspense! Stay tuned for the most exciting part of the reveal RIGHT HERE, Monday, September 19th at 9:30AM!
