For my capstone I have created a handmade makeup and beauty brand, called Sheer Beauty, containing products such as tinted lip balms, lip scrub, highlighter balms, and skin rejuvenating facial sprays that are sold on my etsy site (which is currently hidden as I am still working out minor details regarding shipping and costs):
As I was planning my capstone, I intended to do something that incorporated what I had learned at SLA while also integrating aspects that would translate into my future. I will be attending business school in the fall and thought that getting an idea of what it is like to be apart of a business, run a business, start a business, etc. would be beneficial to me. A lot went into this process, and the inquiry-based learning that I have experienced at SLA certainly helped me break it all down and combat each aspect efficiently.
I’ve always been a skin care and makeup lover, specifically all natural beauty products and skin care remedies, which many of my products are (aside from any pigments). The (almost) all natural aspect certainly sets my products apart from others that are on the market, along with the packaging that I designed on my own. I have attached a photo of what my shop looks like (as it is currently hidden) and the link to my annotated bibliography.
