our story

My name is Dianne Plummer and I am the founder and CEO of True Shade Cosmetics Limited and the brand Your True Shade (YTS). While studying Sustainable Energy and Mechanical Engineering in Sweden and Finland, I was unable to find makeup that offered the ideal coverage without irritating my sensitive skin and eczema. I was frustrated with the unhealthy ingredients in cosmetics and decided to use my background in Chemical Engineering (BEng) to create my own line of skincare and makeup. By using hand picked healthy ingredients that keep my mind at ease, Your True Shade was born in 2015

Vision:To  be a trailblazer in natural skincare dedicated to creating healthy products of the highest quality.

Our Mission: To engage our team of highly skilled game changers to create cosmetics using natural minerals, local ingredients and sustainable green business practices for today’s image and health conscious individuals.

Our Brand Statement: Enhancing beauty without compromising health.
