Seven Deadly Sins: Lust

[image for banner is from the stunning seven deadly sins series by dahlig on deviantART]

This is a series I've been meaning to do for a while, especially after seeing Deja and Klaire De Lys's amazing takes on the sins. I love the seven deadly sins as a thematic element in the bible and in pop culture with everything from horror movies like Se7en, to TV shows like Supernatural to the classic Dante's Inferno and the video game that inspired. 

Lust or lechery (carnal "luxuria") is an intense desire. It is usually thought of as excessive sexual want; however, the word was originally a general term for desire. Therefore lust could involve the intense desire of money, food, fame, or power as well.
In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful/sexual thoughts and feelings. In Dante's Inferno, unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.
The demon associated with this sin is Asmodeus

Used: Shiro Cosmetics Zero on the inner corner, Victorian Disco For the Horde over the main lid, Black Rose Minerals One Does Not Simply on the outer corner. The black liner is Femme Fatale Unholy mixed with ELF Lock and Seal, brows are also done using Unholy and then blended out into For the Horde. Lashes are from Eylure. Black eyes are contacts by I think Titan, they're 17mm lenses, though unfortunatley they show way too much iris in the center.
Bonus full face shot, I used Revlon Red Laquer on my lips.
