Trotula is a midtone greyed cocoa with a strong teal/blue/green interference that also appears very silvery in certain lighting. Trotula of Salerno (fl. 11th-12th centuries AD) was a female physician, alleged to have been the first female professor of medicine, teaching in the southern Italian port of Salerno, which was at that time the most important center of medical learning in Europe. Several writings about women's health have been attributed to her, including Diseases of Women, Treatments for Women, and Women's Cosmetics. In medieval Europe, these texts were a major source for information on women's health. Some scholars have challenged whether or not Trotula actually wrote these works.Much conjecture between historians can be found regarding the life of the "Trotula" figure. Some believe that the works were actually written by a man and not a woman. On the other hand, there are several theories that support her existence and/or that she was in fact a woman.http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Trotulahttp:// aromaleigh.tumblr.com/post/ 70602061720/ thescienceofreality-the-fir st-female-physician
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:
