80's Night

Where I live, there is a semi-regular 80's pop music dance night. I enjoy going to this as it gives me an excuse to wear neon, crimp my hair, and dance like an idiot to "When Doves Cry." For this particular evening, I didn't feel like doing anything too special with my eye makeup which is unusual for me. I decided to add some teal eyeliner for good measure as my manager at work said she used to wear it all the time in the 80's. These photos are from quite some time ago, my hair has gotten a lot longer since then!
