Make-up can be worn to hide or to shine
The power of clean make-up..
Honour your divine feminine self with a ritual passed down from our Egyptian ancestors.
Natural cosmetics have been around for years – our brothers and sisters in Ancient Egypt used Mother Earth’s landscape to decorate their bodies – and its benefits live on…
Clean make-up is so powerful for a number of reasons:
It’s healthier for your skin, with no harsh chemicals or manmade ingredients.
Our skin absorbs everything we put on it, which can be worrying when so many products contain parabens, alcohol, and synthetic fragrances.
With natural makeup, you don’t need to worry about anything nasty getting into your beautiful body.
Many mainstream brands use chemicals that contain ‘endocrine disruptors’, which cause your hormones to fall out of balance. This can affect everything from your skin and immune system, to cognitive and reproductive functions.
Natural make up offers sun protection for your skin, stopping it from burning in ways that mass-produced products often don’t.
Most brands are also vegan and cruelty-free, so you can love yourself while loving all living beings.
They’re better for the environment, as there’s no need for mass deforestation or huge factories pumping pollutants into our world.
Wearing makeup is all about self-love
Wearing makeup, to me, is all about self-love! It’s not something you need to do, it’s something you can choose to do as a way to honour your desire to feel sexy and empowered. Some people think makeup is worn to impress other people, but ask yourself these questions:
Are you okay to be seen without makeup?
Have you ever been told it’s not authentic to wear makeup?
Do you wear it because you want to, or because you feel like you have to?
Ponder on these questions. If you feel you cannot face the world without make up, think its not authentic or feel you have to wear it, I invite you to drop into self-love. What would love do?
Make-up can be worn to hide or to shine. Provided you feel beautiful, you’ll be following the path set out centuries before us, embracing Mother Earth’s resources to engage with enhancing your beautiful features.
Choosing Natural Products
Makeup rituals go back as far as Ancient Egypt, where I feel a true heart connection. My love of makeup is connected to Egypt. When I was little, I used to tell all my friends I was Egyptian and wear thick black eyeliner and after going there last year my connection is even deeper!
Since visiting the sacred lands, I learnt that cosmetics were used by men and women with the intention of honouring their deities, as well as attracting the opposite sex, as you may know from Cleopatra and Nefertiti. There was also a practical aspect, as heavy ‘kohl’ (eyeliner) protected their eyes from the glaring sun – or ‘evil eye’.
The origins of their natural makeup are what draws me to it – using soot and galena to create kohl, embracing nature to create lipstick from red ochre, and harnessing the power of waves and the sun to mix and dry these creations. These efforts show that makeup wasn’t just aesthetic – rather, it served a deeper purpose, with a spiritual importance.
By choosing vegan, cruelty-free makeup, you can do this in a natural way that honours tradition…
