Honoria is a lilac with grey tones and beautiful multi-tonal copper/pink highlights.Justa Grata Honoria was the older sister of Roman Emperor Valentian III. Regarded as too ambitious and promiscuous, her Brother decided to marry her to a "safe" Roman Senator who did not challenge his rule. Honoria responded with a plea for help to Attila the Hun, an enemy of Rome. Her plea included her ring, which Attila interpreted as her requesting marriage. And giving him an excuse to invade Rome. Little is known of Honoria after this incident, but one has to give her credit for standing up for herself, even if it did completely backfire.More about Honoria, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Honoria
IGNIS ANTIQUITA is a permanent collection of eyeshadows inspired by the amazing, fiery, passionate, strong women who have been largely forgotten in our history books, or had their histories revised due to the fact that they were women. Historically seen as the weaker sex, women were typically unable to contribute to politics, academia, science, or war.
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.INGREDIENTS:
