The Future of Dark Heart


The blog is back! I’m sorry for the short hiatus. I’m trying to work my way through a blogging schedule I can manage while working a full time job during the day, working on DHD in the evenings, and taking care of things at home. Now, I have some good news, and some bad news. Mostly good though.

The bad:

As some of you may know, one of the major cosmetic ingredient suppliers canceled one of their most popular mica lines. What that means for Dark Heart Designs, and a lot of other indie brands, is that they’ll either have to change their colors/products, or close their company.

The good:

In our case, I’m going to carry DHD through it’s first evolution. You haven’t seen the last of us. I consider this loss as a challenge. Now I have a excuse to try and change the depth and individuality of my colors. You can be sure DHD is never repackaged. If it was, we’d be out of business as of now. Instead, I hope you’ll continue to follow me through this product evolution and be a fan of DHD.

The bad:

I’ve watched quite a few makeup companies hit the spotlight lately, and not in a good way. There have been issues with repackaging, selling neon pigments (that are not safe to use on your eyes or lips), mislabeling, and more. It’s all really sad because people put their trust in a brand, and instead they’re being lied to, or even hurt. I’m not on a high horse, because I make mistakes as well. It’s not about not being able to make mistakes. It’s all about how you correct them, and where your heart is in the matter. I hope you’ll keep that in mind if you’re reading any of the blogs on the topic.

The good:

I’m working with another blogger, Amanda of The Eyes Have It, to create a site that will help people find safe indie companies. Companies that set the example for safe, correctly labeled cosmetics & trustworthy shopping. We’re only throwing ideas back and forth now, but the work will start soon. Keep reading the blog to find out more!

Thanks for reading lovelies.




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.
