Color Theory for Makeup Artists is an essential skill that must be understood in order to deliver exceptional results to your clients.

This topic is one that newer artists tend to shy away from because it can get very complex and the amount of information out there is endless. Over 3 days, we will show you how easy it is to match ANY skin tone and complexion. You will be able to practice live in real time and ask questions during the session. We will share tips on how to get a proper match with every application.
Pigment type is important to understand as well.  All forms of makeup will be shown such as: water-based, oil in water, wax-based, cream & powder.   No matter what the pigment’s source, natural, chemical or mineral, the same color theory works.  This unique webinar will finally break down all the confusion for artists at any level.
