Women of Colour

issue three : fear thy neighbour

We celebrate women and all their glorious colours in this exclusive beauty editorial using loose and pressed eyeshadows.

Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.
— Kahlil Gibran

History, society and even religion have labelled us. We latch onto titles. We hold onto "colours" of the flesh. What if we were to break with tradition - just for a moment - and instead, explore the colours of our hearts?


Purple; a rarity in nature. The expense involved in producing the colour purple has elevated its status to "super-natural". A colour of magic and majesty. The colour of evolution.


Blue has more complex and contradictory meanings than any other colour in the spectrum. It is the colour of the sea and the colour of the sky. It is the colour of infinity. 




Red is the colour love. Of  passion. Of anger and danger. The colour of fire and blood. It is the colour of our connected histories.


Yellow. The most luminous of all colours. It is he colour of the sun and the personification of the feeling of warmth. Almost every culture recognises yellow with the same understanding. It is the colour of connectivity.
