Indie Interview: My Pretty Zombie
Woot Andrea from My Pretty Zombie was nice enough to answer my silly questions! Enjoy!
Luna: How long have you been making cosmetics, why did you start and do you have any future plans for new shades/products?
Andrea: I started 2.5 years ago I think, but I’m getting old and it’s hard to remember.
I wanted to make my own eyeshadow because nothing was ever red enough, weird enough, or lasted long enough through my grueling work day of testing pee. Also I thought I could improve upon the crappy Halloween store makeup to make bruises…because I LOVE to make bruises!
Also I wanted something inexpensive and catchy in my etsy shop to con people into buying my zombie barbies.
Then it just kind of took on a life of its own.
I always have plans for new stuff, but working full time at my “real” job doesn’t leave me as much room to do all the creative stuff that I like. Things are evening out a bit in my work/life balance so I’m hoping to do new stuff more regularly.
Luna: What is your favorite beauty product that you make?
Andrea: I have so many favorites…I find myself wearing the same stuff over and over again even though I have so many options.
I can’t live without exsanguinate eyeshadow. I wear MDMA blush every damn day. Even when I only put my eyebrows on.
Luna: What is your favorite beauty product from another indie company?
Andrea: I love the lipsticks from other companies…I have so many. Velour from sobe botanicals is spectacular. Providence and grace used to make a lip glaze that was so delicious. I think I have 5 colors all in the frosting flavor.
Luna: Would you rather be a Crow or a Bat?
Andrea: I guess I would rather be a bat because their wing membranes are so gross and see through.
Luna: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Andrea: I’m kind of a shut in and don’t get out much in the Internet world. But I’m around if you need me…or have any questions about colors, dead stuff, drugs, or need help planning for the zombie apocalypse. (Also you are the Goth Mary Poppins)
I’m a bit biased because you spoil me but man I love MDMA and My Pretty Zombie and almost every shadow/blush you make. I like using THC and LSD for contouring my cheeks. I love Dropsy from the new trio. I love the THC shadow lawdy it’s gorgeous. All of your stuff is awesome sauce. It really is. And you are super awesome seller. I have to say too, that I love your theme. I like the gross and weird and whatever. It’s great. Seriously if you haven’t tried MPZ yet you’re missing out. Andrea is super nice and her shadows/blushes are amazing.
