[ Day I: Color Theory & The Customized Complexion ] HANDS-ON*

Saturday, January 26, 2019

10:00AM – 6:30PM

OBJECTIVE: Students will learn basic and advance color theory concepts and how that applies to, selecting, adjusting and even creating varying shades in makeup complexion products.  Students will apply color theory knowledge in the creation of a custom foundation and in the adjusting of pre-packaged foundation shades using the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and, brown, white and/or black.

SUMMARY: Master the global skin range by elevating your understanding of color theory.  Learn how classic art principles and science meet to create a fundamental tenet of makeup artistry.  Begin to train your eye to identify the subtle nuances in skin tone and under tone, so that you provide the best and perfect match every time. 

I will take you through color theory, building from the basics to more advance concepts and how all that relates to complexion perfecting.  I will then execute a demo showing how to custom mix foundation using the primary colors, white and black followed by demonstrations on how to adjust pre-packaged foundation to match any and every skin tone.

Theory and demonstrations will be followed by a hands-on portion guided by me.
