The Seven Deadly Sins - Gluttony and Temperance with Makeup Zombie

Hello ladies and gents....

Getting this post up a wee bit late today- but better late than never, right? As you may know, the delightfully sinful Makeup Zombie has been a bit busy, as have I- so we had put our weekly "Sins and Virtues" collaboration on hold. Today I'm happy to announce.....  We're baaaaaack! I don't know about you- but I've been eager to come up with more of these... And positively dying to do my next one... But for now, I must exercise Temperance and hold myself under control. I can still hope though... Wednesday is coming up rather quickly!!

And I'm totally swiping Wendi's idea here, because it's absolutely brilliant... Definitions of Sins and Virtues! Ready, set, go...


: moderation in action, thought, or feeling : restraint

a : habitual moderation in the indulgence of the appetites or passions

b : moderation in or abstinence from the use of alcoholic beverages

Temperance (Sophrosyne in Greek is defined as “moderation in action, thought, or feeling; restraint.” [1]) has been studied by religious thinkers, philosophers, and more recently, psychologists, particularly in the positive psychology movement. It is considered a virtue, a core value that can be seen consistently across time and cultures (see Historical and Religious Perspectives). It is considered one of the four cardinal virtues, for it is believed that no virtue could be sustained in the face of inability to control oneself, if the virtue was opposed to some desire. It is also one of the six main categories of the VIA Character Strengths (see Major Theoretical Approaches). Temperance is generally defined by control over excess, so that it has many such classes, such as abstinence, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation, and forgiveness and mercy; each of these involves restraining some impulse, such as sexual desire, vanity, or anger.

Now of course, you can't forget to swing on by and see Gluttony.... We are, after all, opposites of each other! And Wendi comes up with some of the best looks, don't you agree? And she certainly makes Gluttony attractive... Don't you think?

Who knew that sins and virtues could look so good?!
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I've eaten 5 Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs today and I don't feel an ounce of guilt. Wait a minute, wrong sin... Strike that confession from the record, if you will! Although, I suppose it's an exercise in control considering I have not yet finished the entire bag of delightfully delicious candy... Right??

  1. Robin the Cradle is such a pretty color! Great look by the way!

  2. You look so sassy in the last picture! I need Reese's Eggs! I totally forgot all about those!

  3. Love the look! I also love Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs...I wish I loved them a bit less!

  4. @Michelle: When I first saw it, I sighed and thought "Oh well, yay another blue. It's alright." When I applied it to my lids, it knocked my socks off! It's one of my all time favorites now! I need a full size to go along with it ;)

    @Charlotte: Thank you so much doll!

    @Reggie: Who, ME?? I don't know what you're talking about....

    @Vulcan_Butterfly: Tell me about it... I have to admit... The bag is now empty. But it took me well over a week to demolish it, so I don't feel all that bad about it!!!

  5. These are super neat. Makes me want to do a series

  6. @Kattatonic Fierceology: It's definitely fun! Wanna do one?
