Barbara Huffman

The Genesis of SMM Cosmetics

Growing up, Barb Huffman was not allowed to wear makeup.  In college, she started experimenting - only to find the drug store brands had caused her very first acne breakout!

Barb didn’t let makeup allergies stop her from feeling pretty.  Like any good southern woman knows, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  After researching natural beauty alternatives, Barb found her passion for creating makeup that is safe and affordable.  With the support of her husband, Barb is happy to share her love for natural beauty with people from all over the world.

"We are a Family owned and operated Mineral Makeup Company located in the gorgeous foothills of North Carolina. We are proud to offer natural bare skin beauty - without the high price tag of the national brands and fancy boutique labels!"

Live, Laugh & Love - Naturally!

-Barb and the Beauty Crew
