How Ancient Egyptians Helped Me Find Beauty

School is back in session, and I cannot believe my summer is over. I have never been one to feel very pretty or confident with my looks. I am average, and everything about me says it all. All my friends know how to put on make-up and do their hair and then there is little old me; the plain Jane who stands out from the crowd. I wish there was a way for me to feel pretty again.

History is not my favorite class; but suddenly I look down and notice a picture of the Egyptian, Nefertiti. She was known as the most beautiful woman in all of Egypt, I wish I could be known for something like that. Even Nefertiti knows how to put on make-up. As I glance through my textbook further I read that Egyptians made their own make-up from substances that could make them ill. Suddenly I feel bad for Nefertiti and don’t envy her beauty anymore.

I recall a verse from the Bible that my sister showed me once in 2 Kings 9:30 which says, “Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out of a window.” Even Jezebel had enough sense to put eye shadow on. Perhaps my problem is I can’t find the right brand for me. As class ends I overhear some senior girls talking about cosmetics and then I hear one ask, “Have you tried using Lime Crime cosmetics?”

I quickly get out my phone to find out more about Lime Crime. As it turns out Lime Crime on tumblr appears to be the answer to all my prayers. These products are made humanely, not like the cosmetics those poor ancient Egyptians created for themselves. As I look more into Lime Crime, I like what I see. I notice they have everything from lips, eyes to nails. I decide to purchase some and within a few weeks my order arrives. Never have my nails looked prettier or my lips felt glossier. Lime Crime is the perfect cosmetics brand for me, I am never turning back.
