Over 5,000 years ago, lipstick was created as a way to show social status – not gender – by the Ancient Sumerians. Fast forward a few thousand years and the Greeks used it as a way to label prostitutes. Fast forward again and we find the Victorians shunning makeup as frivolous. And so it goes. Today makeup is a tool that shows the world who we are – and who we can be, and Emolyne was created with exactly that in mind. As a black-owned, female-led brand we are here to empower every individual to Feel Seen, Feel Ready and Feel You. We like to call it Power Makeup.
