From the original 2013 release:
HORUS: A deep, coppery brown with lustrous violet and rose sparks.
Horus was often the ancient Egyptians’ national patron god. He was usually depicted as a falcon-headed man wearing the pschent, or a red and white crown, as a symbol of kingship over the entire kingdom of Egypt. Horus served many functions in the Egyptian pantheon, most notably being the god of the sun, war and protection.
“Ancient Magick” is an Egyptian-inspired collection of twenty shades. In an array of hues, finishes and effects, the collection is imbued with the colors found in the life, times and art of this ancient era.
This collection was created with the creative input of Kristen’s 11 year old Son, who has been learning about ancient Egypt in school, and is a huge fan of Rick Riordan’s “The Kane Chronicles”
It is surprising that Aromaleigh has never done a collection inspired by Ancient Egypt, because this was a time in which the very first “mineral makeup” was worn by people of all classes. In so many ways, the culture and mythology of ancient Egypt is the ultimate inspiration for mineral makeup!
The blackened eye makeup- Kohl, not only represented the eye of Horus, but also helped to absorb the sun, making it easier to see in the harsh, desert climate. The wealthy and royal decorated their eyes with brilliant blues and greens from crushed malachite and semi-precious stones. Iron ochre and henna provided coloring for the cheeks, lips and nails.
