KHUTULUN - Eyeshadow
Khutulun was a Mongolian Princess, and the Great-Great-Great Granddaughter of Genghis Khan. She is also known as the "wrestling princess", for she refused to marry any man who could not beat her at wrestling. Any man who lost owed her 100 horses. She died unmarried, with over 1,000 horses.
Her color is rather difficult to describe. It can appear dominantly deep green or purple depending on the light. In sunlight, it appears to be a deep fir green with a strong purple essence showing through. It's powerful and mysterious.

The name "Ignis Antiquita" is beautifully representative of the sentiment behind this collection. It is Latin, and translates to English as "Ancient Fire" or "Fire of Old". Ignis is fire- as it relates to the fiery spirit and passion. Antiquita is old, ancient, time-honored, revered, primeval. The collection features women from ancient times, spanning many cultures and areas. While not everyone spoke Latin, it is undoubtedly one of the most widely spoken languages of the ancient world, which many current day languages are rooted in.
APPLICATION TIPS: These colors apply best over a light layer of primer, patted or brushed gently. The effects of the colors become muted if you use heavy primer or a strong glue/epoxy type of primer- or foiling. Best effects are achieved with a light layer of a primer such as Nyx or Two Faced eyeshadow primer. Repeated brushing or buffing will also mute the chromatic effects. You can use them without primer, but the chromatic effects will be more delicate and only visible in certain lighting.
