What Would Laurie Grimes Bring To the Zombie Apocalypse? The Beauty Edition!

First of all I want to thank all of you who took the time to message me regarding my last post - The Princess Guide To the Zombie Apocalypse! I am so glad that so many of you loved it and wanted to hear even more Princeza thoughts regarding the vanity I could bring to such a scary dead-people-walking phenomenon. My ability to over-complicate everything seems to have absolutely no bounds!

In order to explore the girly role in such a horrific disaster of disgusting rotten flesh walking around I thought it might be fun to take a peek in our leading ladies makeup bags. I am not ashamed to admit that I am a terrible beauty snoop so it's only natural to me to want to know what the ladies of the Walking Dead considered a must-have during such a chaotic time!
As crazy as things might have gotten during that kind of devastation you know they had to have taken at least something to remind them of their past normal "feminine" lives. It doesn't take that long to stash a few tubes in a purse, right???

In today's installment we are going sneak a few proverbial looks at the makeup bags of one the series fabulous characters that met her demise way too early and in the most heartbreaking of ways. She might have ended up as Walker chow but her loyal Walking Dead fans certainly haven't forgotten her stoic, painful memory.
In true beauty blogger fashion I decided to have a little fun with this and dispel some of the doom and gloom that is their blood-curdling reality. This really is meant just for entertainment purposes so please don't hate-bomb me over this post or the character herself!

Laurie Grimes is arguably one of the most hated and misunderstood characters to ever grace the AMC'S Walking Dead screen but one thing we can all agree on is that she was indeed very beautiful.
I am not talking about that stunning look-at-her kind of bombshell beauty, her looks were more understated with all but a whisper of classic girl-next-door features everyone can relate to. If it wasn't for her obviously terrible taste in men and perceivable minor character flaws she could have been our best friend, sister or that pretty neighbor from across the street. 
I don't want to dwell on her mistakes and shortcoming, my only purpose here is to take a quick snapshot of her makeup survival bag. My snooping was kind of successful and I managed to get some information about what she sneakily used in that tent at Herschel Green's Farm.

1. Laurie's long and thick hair obviously needed some serious conditioning, de tangling and frizz-smoothing. Seeing how Glenn Rhee only made scavenging trips to the drugstores (what no Sephora?) her choices were limited but she made do. I am betting on John Frieda Frizz Ease or Brilliant Brunette Line Up. That Extra-Strength Formula Hair Serum could have worked wonders despite the hot, drying weather in Atlanta, Georgia.

2. All of the The Walking Dead ladies had a perfect, blemish-free complexion despite the obvious lack of Clarisonic access and regular face washing. Yeah, I was jealous - my skin would not fare well at all and a pore rebellion would be a foot  in a matter of days. The drugstore wonder by Simple Skincare would have been very successful and useful in Laurie's tent.

3. For those of you that watch the Walking Dead you already know that Laurie was pregnant, which is a state she finally accepted after a few unfortunate mishaps,  so I am assuming she made some paraben-free, baby friendly cosmetic choices. Light mineral makeup would have worked perfectly to even out the skin-tone without interfering with that special "glow" that comes with that blissful state. 
Glenn would have picked up some Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation at most drugstores easily. 

4. Laurie never struck me as a high-maintenance girl (unlike yours truly) but nobody likes chapped, cracked lips, especially with all the kissing going around (just sayin!) . Pregnancy friendly and drugstore accessible choice would have been the fun little EOS Lip Balm spheres

5. Pregnancy in real-life and during the Zombie Apocalypse comes with its own body changes and in turn challenges that need regular attention. Naturally thin women like Laurie are no exception so she too might have been plagued by unsightly stretch marks. Luckily both Palmer's Cocoa Butter & Oil are easy to locate and apply. 

To all my fellow Walking Dead and Caryl fans I hope that this little glimpse in to the cosmetic world of the late Laurie Grimes gave you a little more light-hearted look into the gloomy atmosphere that the show has taken since the season started.
There is always next weekend! The Walking Dead airs every Sunday at 10 pm Atlantic Eastern Time
Stay tuned for more character Beauty Editions to come shortly? 
I am stalking Andrea's bag as we speak! 

What do you think Laurie had in her bag?

Thank you for reading!



P.S. The adorable and equally morbid cosmetics bag can be purchased here
