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.
Amphitrite/Salacia is the goddess of the sea, consort of the Poseidon/Neptune. She had many offspring including seals and dolphins. Though she was the consort of Poseidon/Neptune, she is almost never depicted with her husband due to her authority over the sea and it’s creatures. The only time they are pictured together is when he is directly regarded as the god who controlled the sea.
I really wanted to get back into the Goddess Collection as I had some time to finally sit down and create the looks that were in my head. So the first one in the continuation of the series is Gaia or Terra (depending on if you’re looking at Greek or Roman mythology, though they are one and the same). She is the goddess of the earth. So I wanted to take those elements and bring them to life. As well as using more material items to complete the look such as butterflies, leaves, and white roses.
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.
The second Goddess in the collection is Nyx/Nox or the goddess of the night, who was feared by Zeus and is the daughter of Chaos. She was also the mother to sleep, death, and darkness. And I thought it was only right to do this look using mainly NYX products. For this look I wanted to go something more Avant Garde with a galaxy effect created using various cream paints of purples, teals, blues, and white/silvers.
This is the first goddess in the collection and you might recognize the DIY Rainbow highlighter, in the video, that I made a few months ago. I originally created a design for this look without the highlighter but after seeing the rainbow highlighter, I had to change the plan just a little bit to include it in a look. Especially for Iris/Arcus who is the Goddess of the rainbow. She is the messenger of the gods and sometimes known as one of the goddesses of the sea and the sky by being the link of the gods to humanity. As I’m already going to be doing the Goddess of the sea, I will not being adding that part of her story into this look.
