Sophie Foxx Cosmetics


Sophie 3I started wearing makeup when I was in 7th grade. After about a year of putting my mom’s old Maybelline on my face, I began wondering what was in it. The perfect opportunity to research and learn all about makeup presented itself in 8th grade, when we had to do an 8th-grade project about a subject that interests us. I chose to make my own all-natural cosmetics line. This year, when we had to do a similar project for Projects class, I chose to make an eyeshadow palette, something I had not done before, and was still one of my interests.

Over the course of the last few weeks, I researched and experimented, trying out a few different eye shadow recipes. I also tried out different colors, trying to find the right combination for the palette. The early batches were good but a bit too crumbly, so I substituted one ingredient, and I worked to balance glossy and matte textures.
