Ancient Egyptian Series

So, I have decided to start a series based off of Ancient Egyptian Gods, Goddesses, icons, symbols, etc. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to do such a series because ever since I was a little child I was obsessed with the Ancient Egyptian culture and mythology. I will not try to make looks exactly like the hieroglyphs, statues or artwork but instead the looks will be inspired by whomever and whatever I am choosing at that moment. 

So, without further ado, we shall start the series. I am going to start with Isis.

Isis was considered the patron saint of women, mothers and children. She was also a goddess of magic. Isis is also a moon goddess, yet gives birth to the sun, creates and sustains all life. She is wife to Osiris and mother to Horus. I could go on and on, but you could look her up.

Here is the look that I came up with for her, nothing too elaborate:

I see Isis as being a very natural beauty. Therefore I didn't want to go to crazy or overboard with the look that I wanted to create here. I see her as being very classic, so I chose colors that are pretty neutral yet made me think of ancient egypt and Isis.
