Four more days and zombie-filled nights until The Walking Dead season 4 finale, whoop-whoop!
We’ll see if I get any sleep…
I’m having another bout of insomnia, which, on the one hand, is a pain because — hello, dark circles! — but on the other hand, it’s kind of rad, because I’m usually up at the witching hour pondering pressing questions of great importance like, “If the characters from The Walking Dead were MAC Lipsticks, which ones would they be?”
Here are my picks for my favorite characters on the show.
Daryl Dixon — Lady Danger, a reddish coral
I seriously cannot imagine Daryl’s character being anything other than this edgy reddish coral. Like Lady Danger, he may keep you at arm’s length (the distance of a crossbow bolt perhaps?) until he gets to know you better.
But stick around, because once he lets you into his life, he’ll always have your back.
Also like Daryl, dressed up or dressed down, Lady Danger always looks hot. 😉
Rick Grimes — Crosswires, an orangey pink
I think of Rick as the everyman character, an ordinary guy thrust into extraordinary circumstances.
For a long time, he serves as the group’s de-facto leader, shouldering the burden of keeping everyone alive and making the tough decisions.
I definitely see him as Crosswires.
Rick’s a survivor, a man who tries to do the right thing, even when the right thing isn’t always clear.
Glenn Rhee — Brave Red, a warmish red
Quiet, and yet a thousand times stronger than he appears, Glenn is unrelentingly kind and nice. I think he would be an amazing friend (both in the zombie apocalypse world and here), and he would never leave you behind.
Glenn is MAC Brave Red. Unassuming, never overbearing and always guided by hope, even in such a cray-cray world.
When the sh*t hits the fan, you can count on him to do the right thing.
Maggie Greene — Moxie, a bluish pink
I think Maggie would also be a great friend. In my mind, Maggie Greene and I are BFFs. Like her hubby Glenn, she’s compassionate and kind. At the same time, she’s also very opinionated and tough as nails.
Girl can take down some walkers, let me tell you!
Michonne — Violetta, a bright violet purple
Warrior. Mother. Katana expert. All around bad-a$$ mofo.
I think Violetta fits her perfectly.
As we’ve seen in season 4, Michonne has LAYERS, man. She may not be all warm and fuzzy the first time you meet her — odds are she’ll barely utter a word to you for weeks — but give it time, my friend, give it time.
Once you’re in with Michonne, you’ll have a powerful ally and a true friend for life.
