Brandy Allen is accused of stealing lots and lots of eye shadow.   (Police photo)

(Newser) – A 31-year-old woman in Fayetteville, Ark., is accused of trying to stuff $144 worth of eye shadow from a local department store into her purse, reports 40/29TV. Brandy Allen is charged with shoplifting and disorderly conduct, the latter because she became abusive when confronted by a store manager, say police. Authorities say Allen had an accomplice who tried to divert store employees' attention during the makeup caper. Allen was professing innocence, but as the Smoking Gun points out, her booking photo shows she has an "obvious affinity for eye shadow."

Has any one told her she doesn't know how to put on eye shadow??

Why stop there? She should keep painting and maybe she'll discover she's wanted to be a clown all her life and just didn't realize it.
