Why diversity, inclusion and equality matter to us
Too often in the past, people have been defined by their behaviour, what they look like, or the clothes and make-up they wear. Over the years, society has put pressure on people to conform to the norm. And as a result, people have felt that they have to define themselves too. More recently, at least there’s been more understanding of different sexual and identity orientations, and the fact that gender identity isn’t always binary. But still too often people are expected to define themselves according to a limited number of options. And, that’s meant that people haven’t always felt comfortable in their own skin. If the only way you can express yourself is within strict boundaries, how can you really be yourself?
Make-up for everyone and every face
Here at Cult Candy, we want people to be able to express themselves in any way they want. We know that identity can’t be restricted by conventional ideas about gender and sexuality. We support you however you define yourself. Our make-up comes in a box. But you don’t have to put yourself in one.
