From the iconic Egyptian eyeliner to Marie Antoinette’s white powder and rouge, makeup has always evoked an empowering mix of creativity, self-expression and the appreciation of aesthetics.
As Historian Kathy Piess writes, beauty products were “not only tools of deception and illusion, these little jars tell a rich history of ambitions, pleasure and community.”
Often lavishly designed using valuable materials such as glass, gold and gemstones, the little jars were in fact as important as the unguents and ointments they were holding.

Back in the days, makeup was a luxury experience reserved for the wealthy and privileged. Luckily, here at Teeez, we want our products to feel precious — and be accessible to all.

With careful consideration given to every detail — smooth texture or subtle sheen — each piece is truly unique and tells stories of authentic women all over the world, wanting to feel beautiful. Choosing personal interests and passions over the pressures of the world, these girls believe that real luxury lies in taking time for themselves and celebrating special moments — with makeup. It can be the tiniest of gestures or details, from a color-packed case to the silky soft brush, that transforms the everyday experience into a treasured ritual.
A sculptural lipstick holder, a freshly sharpened pencil, an exuberant eye shadow case — our makeup minaudières are so pretty you’ll want to show them off, not hide them away.

So, that was a little history lesson on makeup for you, but what we really want to know is which Teeez product is on your little luxury list? Drop us a line in the comments section below.
