Please pardon the gaps...

The site is in mid-migration now (manual migration of over 7,000 entries, so there's a lot to be done.) The entry stubs are created for older content, but for the most part, the actual content isn't there quite yet. I am working on it. Unfortunately I have no ETA. But feel free to link to any page! When the content does get populated, the URL will stay the same.

Cool new makeup techniques blog: Into The Palette

I taught myself makeup application, basically by looking at my own eyes and face, taking what little I know about perspectives and shading from drawing/art class way-way-way back in middle school, and watching some very basic tutorials. However, I've always known that there were things I'd be missing - and I didn't feel like shelling out tons of money for full-on makeup artist classes, nor did I know where to start looking on the internet or in the library. And now it appears that I have a starting point… Olivia, proprietress and author of Into The Palette. She's apparently a longtime member of the forum Makeup Alley (which I've stayed out of, after hearing comments about the multiple rounds of drama that have swept through there), and this blog appears to be fairly new (she has one that's about half a year older over at The Land of Makeup Obscurity.) She also breaks down foundation and facial contouring, eyeshadow application (what goes where and why), and looks like she'll be adding more. Don't know if this will be a daily read, but it looks like it will be a good reference.
