As well as a gradation from dark to light as per the videos I watched I wanted to do an opposite gradation from light to dark. So I poured out all the colours diluting each time and them poured them in from light to dark.

I not only wanted to use the opposite colours, but also the opposition of dark and light. I wanted to put a gradation in each of my colours, so I chose a slow moving recipe of castor oil, coconut oil,olive oil, avocado oil, shea butter and sunflower oil.
