Around 20 years ago I used to go out a lot. I was into seeing live music and for a while hung around two girls, one of whom wore lots of makeup all the time. Unfortunately I’ve lost touch with these girls but we had lots of fun.
We were getting ready to go out one night and for some reason her Piaf eyeshadow (like the pictured above) came out and she decorated my eyelids. She recommended I go and buy my own. Not long after I was in the Piaf shop and bought the eyeshadow pictured above.
Obviously I don’t wear lots of eyeshadow all the time otherwise this would be long gone, but I put some on the other night and it brought back memories of these two girls and the times we had when we went out.
I also realised that for relatively cheap eyeshadow – I think it was about $20 for all these colours – the eyeshadow is quite good. Eyeshadow and me don’t have a lasting relationship. Some people seem to be able to put it on and it stays on for hours, but inevitably with me it will come off. However, this eyeshadow lasts that bit longer.
It’s also been really handy for the numerous 70s nights I’ve gone to because I’ve been able to plaster on blue eyeshadow. No matter what outfit I wear, there’s a colour to match.
I guess you could say when I’m in the mood for makeup, this is the cream.
