About the Author

Heather Anderson

I LOVE rainbow, sparkles, and anything iridescent. Duochrome eyeshadows are my FAVORITE makeup product, and are the reason why I wanted to learn how to make my own eyeshadows. I have been making my own makeup ever since.

Making makeup is so fun, simple, and rewarding. Once I started to make my own makeup, and found out how inexpensive, healing, and addicting it was, I felt the need to share what I had learned. Every woman should be able to have this knowledge and skill, every woman deserves to look her best, to have makeup that actually matches her skin tone (no matter how pale or dark) , every skin color is beautiful and unique and should be celebrated.
