Dark Heart Designs Swatch Program



What I’m looking for:

I’m trying to collect swatches of all Dark Heart products on varying skin tones, types, and ages.

As of now, I’m only going to be accepting 1-2 people for each tone, type, and age group. That still leaves plenty of openings, but please don’t be disappointed if you don’t make it into the program. As the company grows, there will be more opportunities to work with Dark Heart.


Please only do one color per photograph so that each color can be grouped into a collage picture for their respective product listings.

There is no specific size or shape necessary for swatches, but please keep the size to a normal application area (ie. nothing over 2 inches in width or height), make sure the swatch is centered, and try to get the swatches the same size as much as possible.

I’m going to start swatching the shadows first. You will be sent 5 colors to
start with. When you complete those colors, more will be sent.

Rules of swatching:

  • The program is free, but you will only receive 5 samples to start with. That number will increase as you successfully finish more swatches.
  • You must complete your swatches in a timely manner to receive more.
  • Failure to complete swatches will result in your dismissal from the program, as well as being banned from any other programs, giveaways, contests, etc at Dark Heart.
  • Exceptions will be made in extreme cases, or you can reenter the program by purchasing the set of samples that you failed to finish at regular store price.

Copy the following to an email and send it to tina@darkheartdesigns.com with the subject swatch program.

Please include a couple of photos of swatches that you have done. Photos should be good quality (not blurry or grainy), with decent lighting and color balance (no red/orange photos).

Any other questions can be emailed to me and I will happily answer them. Thank you for your interest, and I hope to work with you all 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.
