However, you may not be so aware of the inspiration behind it, the tips and tricks to best use it and remove it, and what others love most about it.
Read on to delve a little deeper into this Hero, the Goddess Mascara.
The ancient Egyptians have always held a fascination for Eye of Horus Cosmetics Founder & Director Holly Schleich.
Her previous background with an Australian Organic Skin Care company, and as a student of naturopathy, fuelled her interest in herbal lore.
This influenced the connection with what many believe to be the originators of beauty – the ancient Egyptians.
The Goddess Mascara was inspired by The Eye of Horus, which is an ancient Egyptian symbol of awakening, protection, power, and good health.
Suffering from eye sensitivities herself, Holly desired to create a high performing mascara that was low-sensitising on the eyes.
The key ingredient in the Goddess Mascara is its organic Moringa Oil.
The famous Moringa Oil “Oil of The Pharaohs” was found in ancient Egyptian God King Tut’s tomb amongst his golden treasures and other sacred elements.
In this modern day we still recognise the Golden Moringa Oil as a Holy Grail of super-food for its properties of;
- hair protection from the high amount of proteins
- and promoting hair growth due to the high content of key nutrients such as
- vitamins A/B/E, zinc, and silica.
Tips & Tricks
- Set it
Set your intention with it. By including the Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara in your daily beauty ritual, you are symbolically awakening the goddess within.
With each new application of the Goddess Mascara, set your intention for the day. May you bring your visions into the world through your daily practices and awareness.
- Wiggle it
Warning: this little trick is kind of addictive. Before you coat your lashes with the Goddess Mascara, place the wand at the very base of them and slightly wiggle it side to side before combing through the lashes.
This ensures all the lashes are separated and get evenly coated for a lengthened look.
- Triple it
One coat will give you a natural and defined look.
Two coats will lengthen and thicken the lashes.
Three coats will amplify them for an awakened and curled finish.
It’s recommended to wait about 60 seconds before adding on the third coat.
- Remove it
Due to its natural waxes and oils it is a water and smudge proof mascara. However, by using warm water to remove, it quickly melts away with no panda-eye mess.
