Growing up as a child, I was obsessed with Egyptology & Greekology. Books upon books I had were on Ancient Egypt. I've still not been able to visit Egypt but it's on the bucket list. The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. Eye of Horus is also an Australian brand of colour cosmetics. They have an amazing range of eye makeup based on formulas of the Ancient Egyptians, who are the originators of beauty with the sacred ingredients including organic Moringa Oil “Oil of the Pharaohs”. Last month I featured Moringa Oil on the blog and all it's benefits so imagine that in a eye product. Egyptian God's claimed it had beautifying and regenerating powers and also castor oil which I swear by.
I wanted to do a mild-dramatic makeup look, with the alchemy gold Eye of Horus pen eyeliner, it was only right to do a lot of rich & gold make-up on the eyes. With the non blended highlighter on the brow bone, gold leaf paper, lightened brows with flecks of gold running through them and some budget but full eBay lashes. The Alchemy Gold Liquid Metal has a fine felt tipped point, making it easy to start off with a thin and build up to the desired width. It's a beautiful shade that dries into a metallic shade with vibrancy. I've never come across a shade like it, it'll be nice to explore the others in the collection.
