Greek Gods - Aphrodite by KatieAlves
Greek Gods - Aphrodite
With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought it was fitting to do Aphrodite. I took elements from the history I read about her and also added a little modern twist. The eyes are made to look like the sea. Tales say she arose from the sea foam. One of her symbols is a scallop, so I added that onto the eye as well. For the modern twist I added soft pink around the face with little hearts and pearls.
Greek Gods - Hades by KatieAlves
Greek Gods - Hades
You've all been asking for me to do this series for a while. So here it is! I started off with Hades. I took some inspiration from the Disney version with the blue flames (with tips of orange and red) and then added little skulls under the eyes.

I don't study Greek Mythology so if I put something on one of these designs that's incorrect I'm sorry! I'm learning about these guys as I go so there might be some incorrect information. You can let me know that I got something wrong but don't be a douche about it!

I know, it's been too long since I've posted. I've unfortunately been so busy that I can't breath. BUT hopefully I can still post looks here! I'm hoping to start a new series, so be on the look out for that.

In this I used Madam Glam (Cool Waters & Bell Bottom Blue eyeshadows) Lit Cosmetics (
Hawaii 5/0 Glitter) and BH Cosmetics (4th Gen Palette)

You are a colorful, likable, and intelligent person, but you are not always well understood, probably due to a somewhat contradictory nature. You have a way with words, possess great wit, and your intuition is very strong. If lacking confidence, you tend to get into a rut; but at your best, you embrace your spontaneity. Your life path is not always easy, but with age and experience, you learn how to avoid worrying excessively about the future.
