Cosmetics brand ZOEVA has women at its core. The team are dedicated to empowering women to celebrate their individual beauty, as well as advocating for women who have experienced crisis - including those who have experienced domestic abuse.

To mark International Women's Day 2019, ZOEVA hosted two inspiring sessions for some of the women supported across our domestic abuse services, featuring workshops and makeovers. 

Domestic abuse is close to the heart of Zoe Boikou, ZOEVA's founder. After experiencing domestic abuse in her own family, she started the company in order to give her mother freedom and independence. Since then, ZOEVA's message of empowerment has gone from strength to strength.

"When I started my company, makeup was the medium I was using in order to tell my story and in order to support as many women as possible throughout the world. Everything we do within the company is towards women because we want to strengthen and support them in their individual beauty." - Zoe Boikou, founder of ZOEVA

The company is committed to working with charities to support women in crisis, with core aims being empowerment and confidence boosting.

We'd like to extend a big thank you to ZOEVA and Zoe herself for working alongside Hestia and the women we support, and we're looking forward to working with the team again in the near future!
