Organic Beauty, Art and the Warrior Goddess!

Organic Beauty Feature

With the vogue for the female warrior, in Game of Thrones and Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games, it’s time to embrace a fierce, imaginative, confident new world of evening organic beauty, inspired by the natural riches and colours of planet earth, female power and the freewheeling brush strokes of the artist in this photographic beauty essay entitled ‘Compositions’ by contributing photographer, Clara Copley.

The desire to adorn, paint, mark and illuminate the face goes back at least 4,000 BC, maybe even further. Egyptian women used pigments made from berries, copper, malachite and iron to flaunt their high status and ward of evil spirits.

With a nod to Picasso and his exploration of female power and sexuality, we explore beauty, tribalism, art and the riches of the earth with bright, luminous, organic mineral makeup by Benecos, Inika and Burt’s Bees.

Here, Ruby’s face becomes a living canvas for a series of abstract temporary paintings where lines and curves are drawn in bold pigments of cobalt blue, magenta red, cyan yellow and burnished golden mica.

With spring just around the corner, we love the idea of colourful, bold, confident, wearable art – what living organic canvas will your face become?
