i actually know the history behind alot of these cards! i just read a book called Death Makes A Holiday and it talks about halloween culture. but in particular that one were you talked about the girl picking out her make up or blush.... those are actually three bowls... here is the story:

"its a divination game involving three bowls, on emepty, one with clear water, and one with soapy water or dirt. The blindfolded player would approach the bowls and dip her or his fingers into one. The clear water represented a virginal mate, the cloudy water or dirt represented damaged goods, and the empty one was the barren fate of a spinster or bachelor."

amazing huh? im available for parties people.
