Venus: Earth's Twin

Sep 11, 2012 21 comments
Venus is called Earth's Twin because at the time when scientists first discovered the planet, they believed it could be very Earth like, and it is about the same size as Earth as well. Although, now we know that Venus is truthfully nothing like Earth. It was ironically named after the Roman God of Beauty, but the true nature of Venus is anything but Beautiful. It has a thick atmosphere of acidic clouds, constant lightning storms and active volcanoes cover it's surface. When the lava cools on Venus it is much like broken glass, OUCH!

I decided to go with a literal interpretation of "Roman God of Beauty" using the gorgeous copper tones of Venus. I added a slight mystery to the look by making it smokey :)

    I love that you are including information on each planet to preface your eye makeup. Beautiful look... and it proves that Fyrinnae's "Fire Opal" would look amazing on you, if you ever pick it up someday! :-)
