OTHREIS - EYESHADOW - CLEARANCE - THREE LEFT!
This is "Othreis", a beautiful, delicate gold to green color traveling duochrome in a plush matte fawn base.
Othreis was a dryad nymph who consorted with both Zeus and Apollo and became by them mother of Meliteus and Phager respectively. When Meliteus was born, Othreis, in fear of Hera's wrath, exposed the child. The boy, however, was nurtured by bees and thus survived. He was soon found by his half-brother Phager, who was pasturing his sheep in the neighborhood. Impressed with the child being nurtured in such a marvelous way, as well as having reckoned a prophecy that told him to take care of his relative nourished by bees, Phager adopted and raised Meliteus. When Meliteus grew up, he founded the city Melite in Phthia.
Her color is inspired by this painting by Charles Amable Lenoir, "A Nymph in the Forest".
Autumn 2014 welcomes the DRYADES collection at Aromaleigh... ten dramatic duochrome shades imbued with the tones of Fall's splendor. Dryads and Hamadryads were the Greek nymphs of the forests and trees. These colors were all inspired by specific Dryads or groups of Dryads, and incredible classic paintings portraying them.
IMPORTANT APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of NYX cream eyeshadow base. A primer is necessary to reveal prominent highlight/duochrome effect. Using these with no primer will result in very muted effects. We don't recommend using these with glue/epoxy type of primers.
