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.


Email/Contact information:

Skin Type: (ie. Normal, oily, etc.)

Using the linked photos as a guide, what is closest to your skintone?

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). Some photography tips can be found on our pinboard here: http://pinterest.com/darkheartdesign/beauty-photography-tips-and-tricks/

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!
