September’s Goddess is ASTRAEA, the celestial virgin and goddess of justice associated with the astrological sign of Virgo…

ASTRAEA.1150x.TEMPLATE“The Age Of Gold was the first age of the world, without hardship or toil for those who dwelt on Earth, and was without crime. The most recent age of the world, full of troubles and evils, is called The Age of Iron, but perhaps it would be better to call it the Second Age of Gold, for many of its troubles began when gold first tempted humankind to wickedness and war. through the Ages of Gold, Silver and Bronze, Astraea – the goddess of justice – still remain on Earth, but when the Age Of Iron began, she found she could stay here no longer. Now she shines down from the sky as the constellation Virgo, the virgin.”

AVAILABLE 9/1!

September is my favorite month of the year, so I wanted to choose a Goddess associated with my astrological sign, Virgo. This month’s Goddess product is something a uniquely soft blue-grey toned highlight powder with a celestial gold shift and shimmer. I think it would work great for strobing, but of course, you can use it as a highlighter or an eyeshadow, also. Those with pale skintones or a penchant for more dramatic looks might even find it can be used as a couture blush shade, or a delicate contour tone.

The uncharacteristic shade of the powder might look a bit risky in the jar, but you might be surprised at it’s ethereal appearance on the skin. The color inspiration for Astraea is inspired by the paintings of Fernando Gallego, a Spanish artist who is believed to have painted the Cielo de Salamanca– an exquisite domed ceiling painted with mixed media painted with oil and tempera and originally overlaid with gold stars plaster relief- depicting the signs of the Zodiac.

Try a sample or mini jar of this unusual powder and see for yourself! Mini and full size jars depict Fernando Gallego’s Virgo/Astraea on the labels. 

Available tomorrow morning on 9/1 when the shop reopens!

Try this gorgeous deep blue smokey eye for Fall!

We’re in love with this simple and sophisticated smokey eye with perfect wings- by @Aishers87! There’s something crisp and clean about deep blue for Autumn eye looks, especially when paired with Fall’s rich tonal shades.

@Aishers87 used Gaasyendietha, from the dragon-inspired SERPENS collection to create this look. Will you try deep blue for Fall?

10693609_377613665721486_765818009_n Gaasyendietha

 

According to Seneca mythology, the Gaasyendietha is a meteor dragon that dwells in the deep areas of rivers and lakes of Canada, especially Lake Ontario. Not only did the Gaasyendietha spew fire, it could also cross the heavens on a trail of fire. The name “Gaasyendietha” was offered by native people to French explorer Jacques Cartier when he inquired about a creature briefly sighted by him and his crew in the St. Lawrence River. They described the creature as “a blue giant finned snake” that moved like a caterpillar. Some argue that Gaasyendietha is the product of meteors; others claim that this is a meteor-fire dragon.

Color Description: It’s a very rich deep satin finish blue, filled with a rainbow of colorful sparkles- to represent the depths of space, and the depths of the deep lakes where this dragon dwelled. This color would make a great eyeliner or smokey eye look.
