There are also many versions of the myths of Selene, but my favorite is one I read as a prologue to a fictional story. (One of my favorite series ever actually lol. Daughters of the Moon by Lynne Ewing. Stop laughing! I read it in 6th grade!) Ewing's version is basically several different versions combined. Selene and Helios were brother and sister, she the moon and he the sun, they chased each other around earth catching and bouncing each others rays back and forth. The humans loved them for the light that kept them safe, but one night as Selene was crossing the sky she looked down and saw a handsome shepherd, Endymion, and was so entranced by him she left her place in the sky to "be" with him. (AKA she spent 3 days making love with him lol!) The humans became scared when there was no moon for 3 nights and thought evil would come without the moon to light the night sky. Selene's father (Titan Pallas or Olympian Zesus) was mad that she had left her place in the skies. He put Endymion in an eternal slumber and one night of the month Selene would leave the sky and was allowed to be with him. Therefore explaining new moons.
ANYWAYS! For my look I did blues to represent the moonless sky when Selene is with her lover. And tomorrow I'm thinking of doing silver for when she's shining in the sky. I used the left side of Kat Von D's eyeshadow palette in Metal Orchestra. I got this palette from Marz on our first Christmas together, and over the years the lid has broken off and some of the shadows fallen out. I've taped the lid back on and pressed the powders back in. It works great but looks a little rough lol.
