I couldn’t think of a better day to release the final goddess in the Goddess Collection: Greek/Roman Edition than Demeter herself. Known as Ceres in the Roman mythology, which is just a revision mythology of Greek when the power shifted to Rome. Demeter or Ceres is the goddess of harvest and grains, which is completely fitting to Thanksgiving. As Thanksgiving is the day of thanks for the blessing of the harvest, and it was custom to offer the first loaf of bread made from the annual harvest to Demeter.
Demeter is also the goddess that brings the seasons every year, due to the myth of Persephone going to and from the Underworld as Hade’s wife. During the months Persephone is in the Underworld, we have winter on Earth and upon her return we have Spring.
I used gold/orange tone eyeshadows from Morphe and gave myself a cat eyeliner with a wine color in the water line. And I just used regular mascara for the lashes for this look as I didn’t have any false lashes that really worked for what I was going for.
After completing the eyes, I applied my foundation, concealer and set the makeup with Hourglass Ambient palette. Then applied some blush, contour, and highlight.
On my lips I used Wet n Wild lipstick in Cherry Bomb. And messed up on one corner so I had to touch that up but it was mess up later by the bun.
In my hair, I added some grapes then just held a bun in the photos to complete the look.
Let me know what you think of the final goddess. I know I was originally planning on Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. But honestly Aphrodite or Venus is basically any makeup look so I will not be completing that goddess at this time. What mythology would you like me to move onto next or other collections would you like to see?
