women stories

Lucky Morton Kngwarreye is recognised artist for women stories which come from her countries: Ngkwalerlanem and Arnkawenyerr.

Lucky paint the ceremonial body paint designs belonging to these countries and also her mother’s country Antarrengeny. 

Lucky depicts "Awelye" the ceremonial body paint design associated with her country Ngkwarlerlaneme.

The diamond-shaped motifs represent the design used by women during ceremonies. The women paint these motifs on their chest, breast, shoulders and upper arms using powdered natural pigments.

Aboriginal Women apply body paint with a tool that is flat soft padding stick called (typale) like a Makeup brush.

They paint their designs on the faces and also, used the body paint, onto Women chest, breasts, arms as well as their thighs. Each woman can play a makeup Artist and takes her turn to be “painted-up”.

During the Ceremony Aboriginal Women sing the songs associated with their (awely).  

Women perform (awely) ceremonies to feel good and to demonstrate respect for themselves, their country and the total well-being and health of the community as well as their own.

The widely advertised the natural Mineral Makeup was used by Aboriginal women for over 6000 years in women ceremony and the designs of body paint (awely). In 'white' language Aboriginal women apply makeup.

Aboriginal Women manufacturer their own natural cosmetic products. Their cosmetics are the colored products intended to alter women appearance are are decorative cosmetics.

In Europe Cosmetics have been in use for thousands of years using ceruse (white lead), to cover the face during the Renaissance, (blindness caused by the mascara Lash Lure during the early 20th century). Romans and Ancient Egyptians used cosmetics containing poisonous mercury and often lead. However Aboriginal Women Cosmetics include only natural earth grounded Powders (red and yellow clays (ochre ), charcoal and Ash.

Aboriginal Woman have been applying natural grounded earth powders that our culture named cosmetic makeup. However the first archaeological evidence of cosmetics usage was found in Egypt around 3500 BC during the Ancient Egypt times with some of royalty owning make-up, such as Nefertiti, Nefertari, mask of Tutankhamun.

In Europe in the Middle Ages women like a pale-skinned complexion, which was achieved through either applying pastes of lead, chalk, or flour, or by bloodletting, also put white lead pigment that was known as ceruse (white lead) on their faces to appear to have pale skin. Cosmetic use was frowned upon at many points in Western history.

For example, in the 19th century, make-up was used primarily by prostitutes, and Queen Victoria publicly declared makeup improper, vulgar, and acceptable only for use by actors. European Women in the 19th century liked to be thought of as fragile ladies. They compared themselves to delicate flowers aimed always to look pale and interesting. Sometimes ladies discreetly used a little rouge on the cheeks, and used "belladonna" to dilate their eyes to make their eyes stand out more.

Make-up was frowned upon in general especially during the 1870s when social etiquette became more rigid. Actresses however were allowed to use make up and famous beauties such as Sarah Bernhardt and Lillie Langtry could be powdered.

Most cosmetic products available in the world were still either chemically dubious, or found in the kitchen amid food colorings, berries and beetroot. By the middle of the 20th century, cosmetics were in widespread use by women in nearly all industrial societies around the world.
