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 I was in secondary school, I had a four-color eyeshadow kit from some super-cheap drugstore brand (probably Wet and Wild - definitely very inexpensive) and - since this was the 80s - the colors were bright: purple, pink, yellow, and yellow-green. I also had one of those Revlon customizable cases that let you put in three eyecolors of your choice...and mine was filled with pink, purple, and silver. So this combination was an unintentional trip down memory lane for me.

I will probably try this look again...but I might use a darker purple, or apply it wet, or stop the pink at the crease so as not to mix with the purple quite so much. I might also make the silver the center-of-lid color as well, and make the red liner-color a bit thicker and more visible.
