About This Book

Color Theory for the Make-up Artist: Understanding Color and Light for Beauty and Special Effects (Second Edition) analyzes and explains traditional color theory for fine artists and applies it to make-up artistry.

This beautifully illustrated guide begins with the basics of color theory – why we see color, how to categorize and identify color, and relationships between colors – and relates these concepts to beauty and special effects make-up. The book provides a wealth of information, including how to mix flesh tones by using only primary colors, how these colors in paints and make-up are sourced and created, the reason for variations in skin colors and undertones, and how to identify and match these using make-up while choosing flattering colors for the eyes, lips, and cheeks. Colors found inside the body are explained for special effects make-up, like why we bruise, bleed, or appear sick. Ideas and techniques are also described for painting prosthetics, in addition to using color as inspiration in make-up designs. The book also discusses how lighting affects color on film, television, theater, and photography sets, and how to properly light a workspace for successful applications.

The second edition features:



  • A brand-new chapter on color inspiration in make-up and design


  • Additional and updated diagrams


  • More real-life application photos and demonstrations, including new examples of tattoo covering and prosthetic painting using optical mixtures, airbrush, and stippling


  • Expanded discussion on undertones, skin variations, color correction, pigments, colored gels, and more

Filled with stunning photography and practical information, Color Theory for the Make-up Artist provides guidance and inspiration for both professionals and beginners who wish to train their eye further to understand and recognize distinctions in color.
