For the third look, since Athena/Minerva is the goddess of war strategy and wisdom I love I would try to showcase that using golds and bronze colors. Now when I originally planned and tested the look, it turned out completely different to when I filmed it. So you can see in the end I ended up just switching the look of the head piece that this goddess is often seen wearing.

I started the look off by using Too Faced HangoveRx primer and Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation in Mont Blanc just to give my face a bit of a base. Then for the head piece I used a gold cream paint then set it using golds from the Morphe 35OS palette. Then I used that same palette to create shadows using the dark bronze colors. I then used a gold liquid eyeliner from NYX to create a circle embellishment into the headpiece trying to draw a lion the best I could. After completing the originally planned look, I decided I didn’t like how it look and scraped the idea for just a pure gold head piece created from the NYX Glam Liner in 24 Karat Gold. Leaving the shadows where they were.

For my eyes, I primed them using NYX eye shadow base in skin tone then used the bronze shades from the Morphe 35OS palette. After completing that I used the Illamsqua liquid eyeliner to give myself a double cat eye but not filling in the center with black. Instead I reached for the NYX gold eyeliner once more and filled both of those in to give my eyes more of a cat/lion look. Then I applied some Benefit Roller Lash mascara to finish off the eyes.

For my lips I used Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme in Matteralistic as it is the perfect bronze shade to complete the Athena look.

I did apply from NYX tinted mascara to my brows but as the blend into the shadows of the headpiece, this is not actually needed.

What do you think of the look? And which Goddess do you think is next or you are most excited for?
