She’s Got Coats of Many Colours: IFB Project #116

Make-up is part of a typical North American’s beauty routine.  Some own a lot of make-up, while others have tiny collections.  Some have lots of different colours, while others have fewer.  I’m somewhere in the middle.  In any case, what… Continue Reading
