Beauty is your birthright.
Welcome to evanhealy cosmetics. A simple, minimalistic collection of color designed to amplify the natural birthright of beauty, to support the long term health of the skin, and to honor the cosmos in cosmetics. It is not an attempt to cover up, but rather to celebrate and uplift. To empower and rekindle your relationship with your own innate beauty.
Adornment is ancient. A celebration. A joyful offering.
Inspired deeply by the ancient art of adornment and drawing purely upon the earth’s bounty of mineral pigments, plants, butters, waxes — evanhealy cosmetics contain absolutely no fillers and are formulated to be supportive of the skin function and beneficial to the health of our 'living' skin. In short, it's just as nourishing as our skin care.
Amplify. Adorn. Embrace.
We’ve kept things tactile. Intimate. We ask you to use your hands. We invite you to come closer, to touch, to explore. To blur the boundaries of what you expect and how you may have traditionally engaged with your cosmetics before this.
This is a way to invite the earth into your ritual with yourself. This is a celebration of beauty. A union of the beauty of the earth, and your own wild, indomitable radiance.
This collection of color cosmetics is adaptable, multifunctional and nourishing. It encourages creativity. It is layerable and blendable. Colors can be combined, and used in places not noted in the fine print. Mixing and experimenting is encouraged. Everything can be worn sheer or built up for more pigmentation and coverage.
A brief history of cosmetics
The word ‘cosmetics’ comes from the Greek kosmetikos, meaning “skilled in adornment or arrangement,” which has its origin in kosmos, meaning “order; ornament.”
Yes, the word ‘cosmetics’ has the same origin as the word ‘cosmos.’ In the mind of the ancient Greeks the two shared a theme of divine harmony and order. This thinking implies that to engage in the act of adornment connects one to the natural harmony and divine order of the universe.
Cosmetics. What is now perceived as something shallow and superficial once had a great depth of meaning, symbolism and religious significance. And not just in ancient Greece, but all over the world.
Ornate beauty ritual tables strewn with skin unguents, perfumes and cosmetics graced the private chambers of the aristocracy of ancient Sumeria and Egypt, where the act of cosmetic adornment was a private daily ritual with oneself.
Cosmetics were not gender specific. Both men and women in the ancient world partook in the art, using blends of minerals and plants to amplify their own natural beauty. Yet like perfume, the role of cosmetics in the ancient world was rich and complex and was about a lot more than just beautification. Cosmetics were woven into the spiritual web of religious practices and at times had even magical purposes. Makeup was worn in the same way one would wear a protection amulet, against spiritual maleficence as well as protection from the elements.
From Sumerians, Ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, Greeks and Romans. To Dynastic and Imperial China, and the Geisha in Japan as early as the 7th century. Throughout Europe in the middle ages, and renaissance, and later into the regency period. From Queen Puabi, the powerful Sumerian ruler, to the Egyptian queens Nefertiti and Cleopatra, to Weetamoo, a female Sachem (or chief) of the Wampanoag tribe of Massachusetts — cosmetics have been an important and intimate player in the daily life of humans for nearly our entire written history.
TINTED OIL SERUM FOUNDATION
Silky, nourishing mineral coverage in 17 inclusive shades.
Our Tinted Oil Serum Foundation is the ideal complexion companion. Nutrient-rich and lightweight, this minimalist foundation is simple. Made exclusively from all organic oils, mineral pigments and non-GMO vitamin e — it is the purity you’ve been looking for in your beautifiers.
Think of it as a perfecting serum. It leaves the skin looking dewy, creamy and nectarous, while blurring imperfections yet still allowing natural skin to shine through. It provides the same deep nourishment and antioxidant density as our non-tinted Oil Serums.
We chose organic broccoli seed oil for its miraculous smoothing activity, as a natural, whole-plant alternative to silicones. Jojoba for its harmonizing similarity to human sebum. Rosehip for its incredible ability to soften the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, scarring and fine lines. Al Amal Co-operative argan oil for its lush infusion of softness, moisture and antioxidants. Into the luminous base of these decadent oils, we weave in true mineral pigments to neutralize and soften the appearance of redness, blemishes and imperfections.
It can be worn alone, atop clean skin, following a misting of HydroSoul, or layered over other Oil Serums, HydroSoul, Butters, Balms, or Moisturizers for dryer skin.

A resplendent tapestry of earthen delights. Our Color Balms play the role of universal color, providing lush, dewy dimension to lips, cheeks and eyes. These creamy, buttery balms moisturize and nourish the skin while infusing delicate color onto the face for a flush of blooming vitality. They are highly adaptable, very forgiving and easy to use. We prefer to apply with fingers for a more tactile, intimate experience, and easy blending.
Natural mineral pigments are woven into a base of Kperisi Village shea butter, Al Amal Co-operative argan oil, rosehip oil, and organic beeswax to create color that is not only beautiful, but therapeutic.
We’ve created four natural, earthy shades to enrich and amplify your natural birthright of beauty.

Little pots of dark, creamy pigment. Our Brow Pomades provide rich, long-lasting color to sparse brows. The star of this formula is brow-nourishing castor oil, supported by a lovely cast of other nutritious cold-pressed oils. Waxes and butters hold brows in place while mineral pigments fill in gaps and add sculpted definition for strong, natural looking brows.
These highly pigmented Pomades can also be used as eye smudges dabbed around eyes with fingers, or with a brush for a more defined, lined look. They can even be blended with any of the Color or Glow Balms to darken and add more dimension and depth.

Since 1999, we have been guided by the principles of Evan’s holistic approach to skin care. Her years of experience as an esthetician, her profound connection with nature and her knowledge of the healing vitality of plants are the inspiration behind our therapy-focused formulations. We view ‘clean’ as the starting point. The absence of toxins alone does not translate to therapy, healing nor vitality.
No GMOs. No parabens. No artificial fragrances. No sulfates. No silicones. No synthetic dyes. No preservatives. Not tested on animals. Our Tinted Oil Serum Foundations are vegan. Our Brow Pomades, Glow Blams and Color Balms contain certified organic beeswax.
For two decades we have partnered with small organic family farms, women’s co-operatives and co-operative villages worldwide. Wild Rosehip Oil hand-harvested from the wilderness of Chile. Shea Butter traditionally hand-processed from the women of the Kperisi Village in Ghana. Hand-pressed Argan Oil from the Al Amal Women’s Co-operative in southern Morocco.
