Goddess Makeup: Hestia

Hey guys,

Today’s look is very simple and easy. Hestia or Vesta, the Goddess who inspired it, is the goddess of the fire of the stove and the family. All the priests had to be Virgin girls. The most famous of these priests is Rhea Silvia who was made a priest by her uncle. He killed her father, the King of Alba Longa, and all her brothers so he himself can be king. As a priest of Vesta she wasn’t allowed to have children. But then the God Mars came and gave her twins, Romulus and Remus. Just so you know. ;) The bible did not invent the whole virgin mother concept…

The look inspired by Hestia is supposed to be soft but still represent the colors of fire. I think this is great for fall time and I hope you enjoy watching.
