The eyes are the mirror of the soul. Your eyes reveal the unsaid and give weight to what you say. Eye makeup will emphasize, bring light and intensify your look.
The enhancement will depend on the color of your pupil, the shape of your eyes, the outfit you wear, the occasion to celebrate and of course your taste in style. Even if you are not a professional makeup artist, it is easy to enhance your eyes with small, well-placed touches.
However, be careful with the products you choose. The eyes are sensitive, the skin in this area is thin and fragile. Anything you apply will end up in the bloodstream.
So to avoid any form of allergy, aggression or indoor pollution, it is important to turn to cosmetics with natural and organic compositions. The brands that we have selected respect strict specifications, are certified and are committed to honoring an ethical code, particularly in the field of animal protection.
Thus, all the make-up products presented in our e-shop are not tested on animals.
Eye makeup, an ancient practice
3000 years ago, in ancient Egypt, it was common to apply black eye shadow to protect oneself from the evil eye but also to protect oneself from the reverberation of the sun, the aggressions of the wind and the sand as well as from all eye infections. Kohl was thus a make-up that had several functions. Its composition included medicinal plants and minerals such as antimony, lead and coal.
The line of pencil or kohl to give depth to your eyes.
