May the inward and outward woman be as one. May she stay grounded in fearless faith, surrounded in beauty, and always find the perfect red lipstick 💋

The Khol story

Wednesday, June 07, 2017
 It’s said that centuries ago, when Cleopatra set sail to meet Marc Antony’s fleet, she did so with sails that were heavily perfumed. The sailors present at that time reported that the entire sea smelled of incense and this was solely to announce her arrival. Her intention was to seduce the Roman warlord with the use of cosmetics and perfume. In ancient Egypt, prestige, religious and signs of health significantly influenced the decision to wear make-up. Cleopatra was rarely seen in public without make-up on. This included blush, multicoloured eye shadow, lipstick, flattened 

Eyelashes and darkened eyebrows, but nothing compared to her eyes.  Cleopatra was well known to possess the ability to seduce men using only her khol decorated eyes.  

  Science has proven that Kohl lined eyes make pupils look more dilated indicating sexuality.   
Women and men of all social classes continue to use this ancient Kohl trick in decorating their eyes to seductivity.
