Yuki Onna is January 2017's monthly Goddess. Each month, I will be formulating a product inspired by a Goddess suggested by my customers. Would you like to suggest a Goddess? You can do so here!
Yuki Onna is a delicate pale buffed peach with pronounced satiny blue interference highlight. (highlighter, can also be used as an eyeshadow) It is a redux of a shade called "Fidelitas", which appeared in the limited edition Hannibal Primavera box. Available now as a Goddess shade, by customer request. I had a difficult time finding suitable classical artwork depicting Yuki Onna that didn't have copyright issues. I settled on an unlikely solution- an Alphonse Mucha work with pronounced Asian influence, "Le Hivre".
YUKI ONNA (from Wikipedia)
Yuki-onna appears on snowy nights as a tall, beautiful woman with long black hair and blue lips. Her inhumanly pale or even transparent skin makes her blend into the snowy landscape (as famously described in Lafcadio Hearn's Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things). She sometimes wears a white kimono, but other legends describe her as nude, with only her face and hair standing out against the snow. Despite her inhuman beauty, her eyes can strike terror into mortals. She floats across the snow, leaving no footprints (in fact, some tales say she has no feet, a feature of many Japanese ghosts), and she can transform into a cloud of mist or snow if threatened.
