A color circle, based on the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue, is traditional in all forms of art, including makeup artistry. The primary colors of the color circle cannot be mixed or formed by any combination of any other colors; conversely, all other colors are derived from these three colors, or hues (a color in its purest form).
•The temperature and color of the undertone of the skin need to be determined in order to choose the correct foundation.
•Warm vs. Cool (Temperature)
–Warm: look for a golden tone
–Cool: look for a blue, or green and sometimes pink tone
•Dark vs. Light (Value)
•Coverage (Intensity or Saturation)
The visible spectrum of light, as seen by the human eye, was first imprinted on a “color wheel”, first created in 1666 by Sir Isaac Newton. Several variations of the color wheel have been made since then, but the theory behind the color wheel remains the same; there are three primary colors, three secondary colors and six tertiary colors. The colors on the outside of the color wheel are pure hues; you can alter these colors by tinting (adding white), shading (adding black) to the color, and toning (adding shades of grey).
The Color Wheel is divided into a warm and a cool side. Red is a warm primary color; however, when tined, red becomes cool. Green, a secondary color, can be either warm or cool. All other colors on the pigmented color wheel are either warm or cool.
Primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. These colors cannot be created by mixing other colors.
Secondary colors: created by mixing an equal amount of two primary colors.
–Red and Blue create Violet (or Purple).
–Red and Yellow create Orange.
–Blue and Yellow create Green.
Tertiary colors: created by mixing a primary color with a secondary color.
–Red and Orange create Red-Orange.
–Red and Violet create Red-Violet.
–Blue and Green create Blue-Green.
–Blue and Violet create Blue-Violet.
–Yellow and Green create Yellow-Green.
–Yellow and Orange create Yellow-Orange.
•True colors are either warm or cool.
•One half of the color wheel is warm; the other is cool.
•The value of a color is measured by how much black, white or grey, has been added to a color.
•White is added to create a tint.
•Black is added to create a shade. (Deeper, more powerful)
•Use black sparingly; it can quickly “muddy” the color.
Grey is added to create a tone. (more subtle coloration).
A color may also be “toned down” by adding its complementary color in various increments.
•Foundation selection is based on the undertone: warm foundations work with warm undertones; the same is true for cool undertones and cool foundation.
•Foundation must be selected according to value; light to dark.
•With the lightest and darkest skin tones, the greater the margin is for error: lines of demarcation will be more apparent.
•Surface tones are frequently mistaken by new MUA’s as the undertone.
•If the skin’s surface or overtones are incorrectly identified as the undertone, the foundation selection (and concealer) will be incorrect and unflattering.
•Complementary colors are those that are directly opposite one another on the color wheel; the competing colors create a strong, dramatic visual
•Analogous colors are those that are touching one another, are usually three colors with one predominant color, and are on the same side of the color. When well done, an analogous color scheme presents a seamless color flow.
•Split Complementary colors include a primary color and then one of two colors next to the direct opposite.
•Monochromatic color scheme is one in which only one true hue is used, and is accompanied only by tones (shades of grey). The item in color then becomes the focal point.
Nature – colors appearing in nature often are inexplicably beautiful and provide inspiration.
•Color Theory is also important when choosing accent points.
•The makeup artist’s selection will determine whether the look will be neutral, or will “pop” with color.
•Neutral accent points are created when staying within the same temperature as the skin undertone.
•Vivid accent points are created when using colors, which are the opposite of the undertone
•Textures, which include shimmer, will create more drama, even for the neutral palette.

Camouflage makeup is used to even skin tone, compensate for hair loss, and, particularly in the case of burn survivors, redefine features. The makeup artist may be hired for a one-time application; for example, for the camouflage of a bride’s tattoo on her wedding day. On the other hand, individuals with skin conditions, such as vitiligo, melasma and hyper-pigmentation, may come to the makeup artist on a regular basis to learn how they themselves can best apply their makeup.
Camouflage makeup can be very rewarding. When a makeup artist is able to color-correct the skin, and the result successfully mimics “real” skin, the client’s confidence is immediately boosted. Camouflage makeup can also be extremely frustrating. In the case of uneven skin texture, the makeup artist will only be able to color correct, but will not be able to even out the texture of the severely affected skin, and the result will fall short of looking like “real” skin. In the case of textured skin, both the client and the makeup artist must be realistic and lower their expectations.
Foundation for the Surrounding Skin: Regardless of the reason for or area to be camouflaged, the first thing that the makeup artist should do is find, and set aside, the foundation color or colors that will match the skin surrounding the affected area.
Skin Prep: To the extent possible, the skin should be moisturized and hydrated. Silicone primers, which provide “slip”, will work well with foundations that are silicone or wax-based. If there is some silicone in a crème-based foundation, by using a silicone primer, the foundation will also work to make the skin look more life-like.
Color Theory: Assess the undertone/value/color of the affected skin when working to camouflage bruises, birthmarks, and tattoos. Sparingly apply thin color corrector foundation to cancel the discoloration. Examples: unresolved scar tissue and skin grafts are usually red, therefore green will help cancel the red. If the affected area looks sallow (yellow, green), then lavender and pinks will be a good choice. For sallow, deep complexions, orange in the correct value, will work to diffuse the affected area. After the completion of color correction, apply the foundation product that matches the surrounding skin tone and cover-powder-cover-powder.
Product Camouflage: In their makeup kits, makeup artists should have a wide color selection of opaque, camouflage products, to ensure that all skin tones can be camouflaged. As stated above, the goal is to find no more than two shades to successfully camouflage the discoloration and/or the surrounding skin. Sometimes “moles” are added to make the area look more realistic.
Product Consistency: Try to use the most lightweight camouflage makeup possible, in an effort, to create a more natural look.
Product Durability: Set Powder, either in various pigmented shades, or translucent, is highly recommended (unless the skin is severely dry) to create a water-resistant finish. When satisfied that the area is successfully camouflaged, and following the powder application, the artist may wish to lightly spritz ionized water to “bring back” the look of skin. If the client seeks a waterproof finish, such as on the hands, following the last layer of set powder, the artist can spray the area with an alcohol-based setting spray – However, alcohol products should never be used on skin grafts.
Brows: Loss of hair may be due to alopecia, chemotherapy or other reasons. The artist must use a waterproof, durable makeup product, together with a small brush to draw individual hairs; some artists also find that using stencils is helpful. False brows, using human hair, can be custom-made and then applied to the brow bone with medical surgical glue, such as pros aide.
Eyes: The makeup artist may need to apply the principles of highlight and contour to redefine a natural shape to the eyes.
Lips: First, to recreate symmetry and balance, the makeup artist should use a long- wearing, silicone-based lip pencil, followed by a long-lasting liquid lip product that will not dry out the lips.
Male Facial Hair: Men can find false beards/mustaches to recreate facial hair; they can also use a stipple sponge with a cream, followed by powder and spray, to create beard stubble, or to recreate the look of hair on their fingers.
2. Before using any products, be sure to spray products with a sanitizing spray, such as FIRST Sanitizer.
3.Prep the skin by cleaning and moisturizing according to skin type.
4. Use a silicone based primer.
5. Using the stainless-steel palette knife and palette, select a color that will match the undertone of the skin, then set that color aside. If the color cannot be found, two colors may need to be mixed. Next, select another cream color or colors, if necessary, to color correct or diffuse the discoloration.
6. Apply the camouflage cream, using a soft, latex-free sponge. Starting in the middle of the area and blend out the edges; make sure to apply the cream that matches the undertone both over and around the scar.
8. To achieve a more natural look, “moles”, “freckles”, or hair follicles can be painted on the camouflaged area with either a brush or stipple sponge.
9. To bring “life” back to the camouflaged skin, apply a sheer spray of ionized water.
10. If the hands or neck is the area to be camouflaged, and must be waterproofed, apply a sheer spray of an alcohol-based spray, except in the cases where the skin is grafted.
11. For pitted scarring on small areas, a topical silicone product, such as Dermaflage, may be used.
12. Avoid the use of blush over the camouflaged area. The blush will bring back the color that the artist/client was trying to camouflage.
13. If the client is willing and able, airbrush makeup is a quick and effective way to camouflage skin discolorations and tattoos.
Product Removal: Apply a liberal amount of cleansing cream (Cerave, or Cetaphil are inexpensive options) on the entire area. Wipe off the makeup/cleansing cream with a non-irritating moistened cotton square or non-scented baby wipe. For the eyes and lips, a gentle makeup remover, such as a micellar water is recommended.
Hydrate according to skin type. For added hydration and protection, layer your moisturizer with a serum.
Primers may be used under makeup or alone to even out surface texture and fill in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to protect against, dry, cold windy wintery air!
Exfoliate your body, face, and don't forget your lips! We recommend using face scrub 2-3 times a week. For chapped lips, be sure to exfoliate, followed by using a lip moisturizing product, like Rosebud Salve.
