“The Age Of Gold was the first age of the world, without hardship or toil for those who dwelt on Earth, and was without crime. The most recent age of the world, full of troubles and evils, is called The Age of Iron, but perhaps it would be better to call it the Second Age of Gold, for many of its troubles began when gold first tempted humankind to wickedness and war. through the Ages of Gold, Silver and Bronze, Astraea – the goddess of justice – still remain on Earth, but when the Age Of Iron began, she found she could stay here no longer. Now she shines down from the sky as the constellation Virgo, the virgin.”
This month’s Goddess product is a uniquely soft blue-grey toned highlight powder with a celestial gold shift and shimmer. I think it would work great for strobing, but of course, you can use it as a highlighter or an eyeshadow, also. Those with pale skintones or a penchant for more dramatic looks might even find it can be used as a couture blush shade, or a delicate contour tone.
The uncharacteristic shade of the powder might look a bit risky in the jar, but you might be surprised at it’s ethereal appearance on the skin. The color inspiration for Astraea is inspired by the paintings of Fernando Gallego, a Spanish artist who is believed to have painted the Cielo de Salamanca– an exquisite domed ceiling painted with mixed media painted with oil and tempera and originally overlaid with gold stars plaster relief- depicting the signs of the Zodiac.
