Color Theory in Flesh Tone with The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™

Color Theory in Flesh Tone with The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™


August 19, 2019

1:00pm - 4:00pm

Color Theory in Flesh Tone is a hands-on workshop that translates color theory into the language of makeup. One of the greatest tools a makeup artist has is color theory. Being able to actively work and use the principles of color theory during application makes every artist stronger and more efficient.

In this workshop we revisit the basics of Color Theory and the principles of color used in makeup application. Learn to translate color into flesh tone and neutral using The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ and determine skin tone, highlight, contour and correction. See how using color theory affects every color choice from foundation, to eyeshadow and lip. In the hands-on portion we build skill and train the eye using The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ and a color theory makeup palette to create, mix and adjust foundations, highlight, bronzer, contour, and corrective colors followed by eye, cheek and lip.

This class has a demo and lecture followed by a hands-on portion.

Instructed by Terri Tomlinson.

Terri Tomlinson is a working makeup artist, educator and owner of Makeup Training Academy in Dallas. She most recently re-invented the wheel! The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ is both a guide and tool for anyone who works with skin, showing you undertone, highlight, contour, analagous and corrective colors for makeup. Along with the wheel Terri has created a method of working with color theory in skin tones and neutrals. It is this methodology and simple way of working that she brings to you!

Dallas Makeup Artist Terri Tomlinson has Re-Invented The Wheel.

In June 2017 Terri Tomlinson released a one-of-a-king tool for makeup artists and anyone who works with skin called The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™. The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ takes the rules and guidelines of Color Theory and puts them into skin tone, providing a reference for skin color, highlight, shadow, correction and makeup colors.

“I’ve been working in depth with Color Theory since I opened Makeup Training Academy in 2010. My understanding of color and theory has deepened so much in that time, that it now affects every part of my makeup application,” says Terri. “I am obsessed with Color Theory!” As an educator however she found that there was a huge gap between the pure hues of a traditional color wheel and skin. And so she set out to create something that her students could use to learn.

The result is both a tool and guide for seeing Color Theory in skin. Artists can use The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ to find a clients undertone as well as have a visual reference to what corrector color, highlight shade, contour, and makeup colors are best on that client. “Once you find a clients skin on the wheel, you have a reference for everything else you need as an artist,” says Tomlinson. “The Wheel is like a puzzle and the clients skin color is the key. Once you find the key you know everything! Even what color blush and shadows look best on them.”
