Pressed Powder Experiments

I spent the past weekend playing around with my powder pressing goodies. It’s taken some work and some getting used to but I like making them and I think I’ll start selling them as well.

I’ve found that pressed shadows do not sparkle as well as the loose pigments. They’re easier if you intend on using more then one shadow for a look. Tooting one palette is a lot more convenient then tooting 4 or more jars.

I was also thinking about combining colors or marbling two or more colors in one pan. It would make the amount of colors that can go in a pan double. I do believe that will be my next project after the move. I’d really like to be able to offer all of the loose pigment colors in a pressed version with a four color custom palette and color and/or marbling as an option. Hopefully I can add that to my site soon.


About Dark Heart Designs

I make loose eye shadows, pressed eye shadows, lip slicks (lip gloss), and more. I also love writing, crafting and animals. I paint my own furniture, make my own curtains, decorations, clothing, and costumes. I'm currently living in South Georgia, but I’ve been all over the east coast since I grew up in the carnival industry. When you’re on the other end of the carnival, selling bright pink cotton candy, rainbow sno kones, and those lovely, red candy apples, you realize that on the midway, it’s all about how bright and flashy you can be. I think that’s what brought about my love of bright colors and dark contrasts. There’s nothing in this world like a carnival at night. My mission is to make beautiful, affordable cosmetics, and help people along the way. Dark Heart Designs is more than just a cosmetics company. I want it to be a resource, an inspiration, and a brand that makes you feel like you're a part of something. Make up is just the beginning.
