Who am I?

I’m Marie Rayma—author, creator, and lover of making things! I have a Bachelor of Design Honours from York University, and I am a graduate of Formula Botanica’s Diploma in Organic Skin Care Formulation and Diploma in Organic Haircare Formulation courses. I designed this free DIY Skin Care for Beginners Course to teach you the essential skills for DIY skin care with a series of simple, fun projects so you can feel confident diving into making things!

I started creating my own skin care products back in 2010 because I wanted to understand what was in my products and how they worked. I launched Humblebee & Me in late 2011 to share the things I was making. Back then things were pretty scatterbrained, with everything from historical costumes to soaps and dog photos! Today I blog exclusively about creating your own skin care, cosmetic, and home products, sharing new recipes twice a week on my blog and YouTube channel.

My first book, Make it Up: The Essential Guide to DIY Makeup and Skin Care, By Marie Rayma, creator of was released worldwide on December 27, 2016, and is now available at booksellers all over the world! Make it Up is all about how to create your own makeup at home, with over forty recipes for everything from liquid foundation to long-wearing lipsticks and eye-catching highlighters.

What You’ll Learn

in this free DIY Skin Care for Beginners Course


Six tested, foolproof recipes

I’ve developed six great formulas for this course! They use beautiful, natural ingredients and each one teaches you a new technique that you’ll use over and over again.


How to make substitutions

Don’t have a specific oil or butter? Learn how to choose smart substitutions from what you already own!


Working in weights

Weighing out ingredients is significantly more accurate than using volume measurements like cups or tablespoons, so we’ll use a scale to make sure we can get the same end product every time.


Perfectly smooth butters every time

Have you ever had a project change from a beautiful, smooth butter to something speckled and grainy? Or perhaps you’ve purchased a butter and it’s grainy instead of smooth? No more! Learn how to prevent grainy butters and keep your products silky smooth.


So much more!

Along with detailed, easy to follow instructions, I’ve also packed the course with helpful tips, tricks, and techniques so you’ll feel confident making your own skin care products!
