A Tale of Two Eyeshadows... Stream of Consciousness

I was really, truly determined to just two eyeshadows in this look (not including the highlighter, pfft!), but of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone.  I have a tutorial for this look, and it's more like a stream of consciousness than a...
