KORONIS- eyeshadow - DISCONTINUED
Koronis (Coronis) was a Hyad star-nymph, whose name means "curved" or "arched". The Hyades were half sisters of the Pleiades, and were the daughters of Atlas and Aethra. They were entrusted by Jupiter to act as nursemaids to the infant Dionysus. They were placed among the stars as a reward for their sisterly love, which was evinced by their sorrow at the death of their brother Hyas. They are known as the rainy ones, for their falling tears marked the start of the rainy season. The painting this color is inspired by is "Star of Heaven", by Edward Robert Hughes, in which the nymph is wearing a coronet of stars.
Color Description: Koronis is one of the sparkly shades in the collection. It's a soft cream with a strong blue/violet duochrome when foiled or used over dark primer. It has blue and gold sparks.
Photographed under a daylight lamp, swatched over Nyx Black Bean pencil (top RH corner), and Nyx cream eyeshadow base in skintone (large bottom swatch).
Winter 2014-2015 welcomes the ASTERIAI collection at Aromaleigh... ten beautiful shades inspired by the wintry tones of the starry night skies. The Asteriai were the star nymphs, known through myth as the stars of the Pleiades and Hyades star clusters in the constellation of Taurus. Each shade is inspired by a specific Asteriad nymph and a pre Raphaelite painting which I felt best portrayed each shade.
APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of Nyx cream eyeshadow base. A primer is necessary to bring the highlight/duochrome effects portrayed in the swatch photos. If you wear them without primer, you won't see as strong of a color shift. A stronger effect can be achieved by using a sticky base, but I don't photograph my swatches over a sticky base.
