My friend Lupita and I in my kitchen at one of my annual Teacher Christmas Parties.
I have loved makeup since my high school days at Saint Mary’s Hall.
I may have worn a uniform and saddle oxfords every school day for 4 years, but I usually had on Maybelline demi false eyelashes too.
I learned to master cake eyeliner and to this day, there is nothing better.
During trips to Fred’s Pharmacy in Falfurrias as a teenager, I was mesmerized by the Revlon display.
Now jump ahead from that time in my life to November of around 1985.
It is a memory etched on my heart.
I am literally squealing in the faculty parking lot with my dear friend Lupita Ramirez.
We were oohing and aahing over the Borghese Christmas Eye Shadow Collection.
I lost that dear friend in August of this year to breast cancer.
So in looking to re-create that moment in 1985, because I miss my friend, I have been looking at every eye shadow palette I can find.
This makes perfect sense to me.
