New Company Creates Middle-earth Inspired Make-up

Lord of the Rings has inspired artists, writers, movie producers and video games. But how often has the works of J.R.R. Tolkien inspired make-up? Independent beauty company Cinnamon Candies is probably one of the first people to create a collection of eye shadow completely inspired by one of her favorite places in Middle-earth.

The Cinnamon Candies “Countryside Collection” is inspired by The Shire. Shades with names like Lobelia, Party Tree and Green Dragon are easy to figure out references for Tolkien fans.

The entire collection is five eye shadows, each of them created by company owner Candace McCarty. While reading Candace’s name along with make-up may be a surprise, the co-founder of Middle-earth Network is a former Make-up Artist, Esthetician and owns a beauty and lifestyle website. Make-up and beauty is no stranger to this Tolkien fan and owning a beauty company has been a dream of hers for years.

“I can’t think of any other way to launch my first eye shadow collection and make the company public.” Candace says “I love Lord of the Rings. I love Tolkien’s books. How could I not take that inspiration and create colors based on them? Sure, it’s a little unconventional for Tolkien fans. I’ll bet a lot of people are thinking ‘Make-up?’, but I’m not the only person who loves Tolkien in this business. Tolkien fans are everywhere and in every industry.”

The Cinnamon Candies Countryside Collection is currently in a special pre-order event. You can order the entire collection for $10.00 until June 14th, 2011 at the Cinnamon Candies online store.
