With the winter season still upon us I thought it appropriate for some Nordic folklore themed makeup.

Gna
She is listed by Snorri Sturluson as one of the divine Norse goddesses; but appears only to be a handmaiden and messenger of Frigg. She has a swift horse named Hofvarpnir (“Hoof-thrower”), which can run in the air and over water.

This design will give you insight into layering face paint makeup.
