Growth Amongst the Concrete Part II

Namaste,

I hope that you enjoyed the photoshoot.

Although this is part II of the Growth Amongst the Concrete series, the whole idea actually stemmed from this particular post- a cruelty free makeup photoshoot.

There is so much more to the application of makeup than we realise. Of course, it is a superficial ritual which we perform, with which our appearance is altered, according to the application that we choose. However,  I believe , makeup is tantamount to choice. Not only do we choose a particular guise with each application of makeup, but the actual makeup we choose to wear is significant within itself.

Makeup does not only have the capacity to empower its wearer through the confidence that it lends, it also gives its wearer the opportunity to empower their environment. By making the conscious decision to only purchase and wear cruelty free makeup, you are empowering the voiceless who have suffered in many labs for multiple cosmetic conglomerates.

As the saying goes, “beauty is what beauty does”. The foundation of every choice we make is consciousness. On the surface level, our ego comes first, our appearance is a priority. However, allowing for that choice to go deeper than our ego, allowing for something as seemingly superficial as makeup to empower, that is the deepest level of consciousness.

The best part  it that it is actually achievable! Every ounce of makeup worn by these models is cruelty free.

Enjoy!
