It's always fun playing dress ups and my girls are no exception.After years of ballet and dancing my daughters' interest in make up and cosmetics grew, but so did their interest in my make up!
Many smashed bronzers, gouged rouge and ruined lipsticks later, I started to look around for a brand of Australian make up that I could buy for them, so they could continue their experimentation without wrecking my favourite products. Let's face it, I just wanted them out of my nice make up!
I found it was difficult to find an affordable, age appropriate range that delivered all the fun and colour my girls were after.
Kooki U was born out of my desire to provide my girls, now teens, with an Australian made, cruelty free, mineral based cosmetic range that inspired them to be creative and allowed them the joy of self discovery.
With Kooki U they can be original and a little kooky.
Kooki U is an Australian business committed to providing good quality cosmetics that our kids, tweens and teens will have fun using, and parents will be comfortable letting them use.
At Kooki U you can trust the process and the product - from conception through to the final packaged product, our cosmetics and make up range is designed, manufactured, and packed right here in Australia.
Now teens, my girls continue to love You Tube tutorials to develop their makeup skills and try new looks.
We go through litres of make up remover and beauty product accessories are continuously found all over the bathroom. We have now moved on from our young years of smashing lipsticks and ruining makeup, now we just use a lot of Kooki U and refine our skills!
We are happy to recommend any products and colours if you are not sure what to choose, just get in touch via our contact page here.
It’s also not always about the kids, mums use Kooki U as well as its gentle on skin and mineral based so ticks the boxes for us as well. Why should the kids have all the fun? We hope you enjoy your Kooki U experience.
Natural Makeup by Kooki U
Kooki U prides itself on bringing you the most natural makeup possible. You choose what you put on your face and current trends in cosmetics are all about natural makeup, mineral makeup.
Natural makeup is made from natural ingredients, not man-made synthetic ingredients, but products born out of a natural environment, bare minerals. Pure earthly ingredients not only benefit your skin in several ways but are also more environmentally friendly.
With mineral makeup you are ensuring that the makeup you put on your face is natural and this has to be better for your skin.
What’s in Mineral Makeup?
A selection of minerals is always found in natural mineral makeup, these are minerals from the ground such as Iron Oxides, Zinc Oxides, Ultramarine, Micas, Silica and Kaolin clay plus a few others that mixed together form our natural makeup.
Each ingredient contributes something different to our Kooki U makeup, for example, Zinc and Titanium Oxide provide a sunscreen effect in products, Zinc Oxide is also an anti-inflammatory and Kaolin Clay helps to refine pores and clear breakouts as it absorbs fats from the skin. Micas reflect light and therefore produce the shimmery effect in our body glimmers and Sparkly Dancing Eyeshadows.
We believe that natural makeup, mineral makeup is the best option for young faces, come be Kooki with us!
