COLOUR! Part 3: Describing colour & the impact it has on your Makeup by Make Up Like A Pro

Welcome back to Part 3 of Make Up Like A Pro’s Week of Colour!

On Monday we explored colour in its broadest sense and I gave you a list of colours and the common emotion often attributed to them.  Yesterday I explained the role of the Colour Wheel and Colour Theory and the impact that it has on Makeup.  Hopefully you are starting to realise the impact that colour has on making Hair and Makeup decisions and that you are getting to grips with a little bit of the science side of it J

Today I am going to talk about how to describe colour using various properties: Hue, shade, tint, tone, brightness and saturation and how you can take advantage of these to create your own makeup effects

The chart below is an example of Tints, Shades and Tones using a Blue Hue

Make Up Like A Pro

The Hue is the basic colour group i.e. blue (in this example), green, red etc.

The top layer shows Blue Tints – a Tint is the hue plus white which makes the colour lighter and creates pastel shades

The middle layer shows Blue Shades – a Shade is the hue plus black which makes the colour darker

The bottom layer shows Blue Tones – a Tone is the hue plus grey.  The tonality refers to the lightness and darkness of a colour, for example in black and white photos tones are visible, rather than colour.  For example a light yellow and a light purple would have the same tonality and would therefore look the same in black and white

Brightness, also referred to as “value” describes how light or dark the colour is

Saturation tells us how the colour looks under various lighting.  For example when you do your makeup in the bathroom light and then step outside into the natural light, the makeup hasn’t changed but it looks somehow different.  The changed saturation gives us a different perception of the colours.  The greater the saturation, the more vivid the Hue

These colour descriptions all help to affect how the makeup I put on someone’s face will look on-screen.  For a Makeup Artist, there are various things that will impact how a makeup will look, such as the type of lighting used, the colour of the costume that is being worn and how the set (the area that we shoot in) is coloured and the reflective value of it

A little nugget of information that is vital to my job that I want to impart to you is that when you do a makeup in front of a mirror and it looks one way, when you get it on camera it may not be what is seen.  This is the same for you guys as I mentioned earlier, that when you do your makeup in front of your bathroom mirror it might look different to when you step outside into the natural light.  Just as I might have to make minor tweaks which are part of my job, you might need to make your own tweaks to yourself … such as taking down the amount of blusher that you have just applied to give a more natural feel in the natural light

With this in mind, have you ever thought about why you might notice certain colours more than others?  I am going to introduce some more colour terms that you will find useful when you are looking at, and describing your own makeup.

Warm colours and colours that are higher in value often get noticed first.  For example colours pertaining to red and yellow are considered to be warm and a bright red (a higher value, brighter red) will stand out and therefore get noticed by the eye much more quickly than a darker red

Cool colours and colours that are low in value are said to recede.  Blues and purples are cool colours and meet the eye more slowly than warm colours.  A dark blue which is less bright than a light blue would appear to recede from the eye

So now you are more familiar with how to describe colours, can you see how you might use this when it comes to applying your makeup?  Very often, the careful application of makeup means that we trick the eye by creating effects.  Look at the before and after photo below of Kim Kardashian

 

The photo is a fantastic example of exactly how this is done … by using the technique of contouring which uses highlighting and shading.  You can see that the darker areas under her cheekbones create depth and a darker or cooler colour is used here to create these areas of recession.  Alternatively, you can see the areas of highlighting on her cheekbones which create the illusion that the cheekbones are more prominent.  You can see in the “after” photo how her cheekbones look more prominent… through the use of careful highlighting techniques :)

As a rule of thumb which will be useful for you guys, to highlight or draw attention to a feature, use a warm colour or one that is high in value.  To create a shadow, or depth, use a cool colour or one that is low in value

Looking at the photo of Kim, you can see the very well-crafted contours and depth that she has created by using the basic colour theory!  There is nothing to stop you from doing this yourself. I will be writing a specific article on the Art of Shading and Contouring so make sure that you stay tuned.  Sign up to Make Up Like A Pro to receive notification of all my new posts so that you don’t miss out on anything!

The final element of colour theory that I want to mention today is colour reflectiveness and there are six common types of reflectiveness to be aware of.  Not all of these will be relevant in the application of Makeup, but you should be aware of the terms

Matte – this means that there is no shine so it can be opaque or translucent
Shiny – things that are shiny will have a gloss look
Metallic – these are highly reflective, bright and not see-through
Opaque – these are not see-through
Translucent – these are lightly fogged and barely see-through
Transparent – these are see-through such as glass

Can you think of some makeup-specific colour reflectiveness examples?  A matte lipstick would have a very different finish to a shiny lipstick.  Metallic eye shadows look great on some people but not on others, so being aware that there is a difference in those is crucial! A clear matte nail varnish for instance, looks great on a man as it does not have a shiny finish

So, after today’s article, does colour mean even more to you now?  Can you look at your face and start to notice the areas that you might want to highlight and those areas that you might want to darken?  I hope that you feel like you have more tools to be able to go ahead on your own and start to think about that

I will be giving you examples of some great makeup specifically for highlighting and shading so make sure you stay tuned!

Come back tomorrow as I finish with Part 4 and Part 5 of my week dedicated entirely to colour where I make recommendations as to what colours you should be wearing …

COLOUR! Part 2 – The Colour Wheel and Makeup working together by Make Up Like A Pro

Welcome back to Part 2 of Make Up Like A Pro’s Week of Colour

I hope that you found yesterday’s post useful.  Have a look here to re-cap in case you have forgotten what you learnt yesterday J

Have you started to think about how colour affects your own style choices every day?  Try and keep colour at the forefront of your mind this week and see whether you start to think differently about it

 

Today, I am going to explore in depth the Colour Wheel and the role of colour theory in makeup artistry.  It is one of the principal foundations of everything that I do.  I have to be able to recognise my client’s skin tone, as well as being able to apply corrective makeup.  I need to be able to enhance or complement my clients natural colouring by looking at their skin and applying my colour theory knowledge.  As part of my casualty makeup skill base, I need to be able to match colour on prosthetic pieces which involves blending away the edges and matching to the skin tone. Check out the casualty makeup below that I have blended and colour matched to the required skin tone.  Not only does my job rely on technique, it also relies on colour matching too!

Blending edges and colour matching

There are a number of colour models but I am going to talk about the colour model RED YELLOW BLUE (RYB) which is used traditionally in art, and the importance of understanding the colour wheel in mixing colours.  It’s not only vital to know what colours look good together when doing a makeup, but it’s also crucial for me to understand what colours cancel each other out too.  For instance if I am required to cover up a tattoo, putting a flesh coloured pigment straight onto the ink is not always enough to knock out the blue of the ink, so picking a colour that will cancel out the blue ink first, then matching the skin colour is a process that I might need to go through

Check out the photos below of the process that I had to go through to conceal a standard tattoo – please note that the photos have NOT been airbrushed.  The concealing of the tattoo has been done entirely through the use of makeup!

Tattoo part 1
Tattoo Part 2
Tattoo Part 3
Tattoo Part 4

Using the same theory to conceal redness under the eye, it is common to use a green makeup initially to knock out the red hue then apply a skin tone on top to match the natural skin colour.  I’ll talk about how that all works below so carry on reading!

The Colour Wheel

This is a fundamental way of looking at how to mix colours together and being able to get the results you require means that you need to get to grips with their relationships with each other.  Below is a list of all the various colour categories that you should be familiar with and how they relate to each other

The Colour Wheel

Primary colours: Red, Yellow and Blue – All other colours on the colour wheel can be made my mixing primary colours together.  You cannot mix any two colours together to make a primary colour and when they are mixed together, they make grey

Secondary colours: Orange, Green and Purple – You create secondary colours by mixing together equal parts of any two primary colours. I.e. red and blue will give you purple (violet)

Tertiary colours: Red-Purple, Red-Orange, Blue-Green, Yellow-Green, Blue-Purple, Yellow-Orange – You can create these by mixing equal parts of a secondary colour and a primary colour together

Complementary colours:  Another concept that is very important when it comes to colour and makeup are complementary colours.  These colours are directly opposite each other on the Colour Wheel.  The aspect I LOVE about these colours is that when you place them side by side, they make both colours appear brighter which gives a strong contrast.  Can you see why this might be a vital piece of knowledge when choosing which eye shadow to wear?  As a very general rule, you usually want the base colour of your eye shadow to be complementary to your eye colour.  Also useful for hairdressing, using a purple shampoo will knock out the yellow from blonde hair, making it more ashen

Quaternary colours: These are made by mixing two of the secondary colours together , resulting in a brown colour.  These colours are particularly important when it comes to describing our underlying skin tones.  An olive brown skin tone which is green + purple has a blue bias and an orange + greenish brown has a yellow bias and will often be referred to golden or sallow.  A purple + orange brown has a red bias and will often be described as ruddy or warm.  All of these underlying tones will affect which makeup will work best on each

Earthy / neutral tones: black, browns and greys: These are created by either mixing all three primary colours with any two secondary colours or mix all the primary and secondary colours together

Harmonising colours: For example blue and green, these colours share a pigment and blend easily into each other

So by categorising colours into their relevant areas, we can see each of their relationships with each other and by mixing different proportions, we can create any colour that we want!

The Colour Wheel

My aim for you all today, is to understand that you can mix any colours together, and understand what happens to them when you do.  I also want you to get your head around how colours mix together so that you can understand that we are able to match any foundation to any skin tone; we are able to conceal any colour with the right combination of colours, to achieve the required and desired finish

So, that is all that I am going to give you today … I think that’s enough to digest before tomorrow!  Can you see that there is much, much more to do with colours than simply getting the mix correct?

How a makeup ends up looking on camera is affected by a whole host of other influencing factors.  I am going to cover this tomorrow along with some other really useful colour theory and the rest of the week I am going to get to the stuff that you have all been waiting for … which colours you should be wearing!!

Stay tuned and see you back here tomorrow!

COLOUR! Part 1 – The importance of colour and what it means to us by Make Up Like A Pro

Hey everybody and welcome to Colour Part 1 – The Importance of colour and what it means to us all

If you have checked out Make Up Like A Pro’s Facebook Like Page and my Twitter account this morning you will see that I am changing my plan slightly this week in what I’m going to write about.  I am going to dedicate an entire week to COLOUR and the importance and effect and impact that it has on Makeup and Beauty

Make Up Like A Pro Colour: Part 1

You may be thinking, what led me to decide to dedicate an entire week to COLOUR?  The fact that I am asked, more than anything else “what colour should I wear to make my eyes stand out?”  You may also be wondering what on earth I could talk about all week to do with colour!?  I think you will be surprised when we get to Friday and you realise how much you have learned!

There are so many tricks and nuances that go with creating a beautiful makeup look but before you start creating anything, any makeup artist worth talking to will tell you about the importance of colour and the colour wheel. Understanding how colour works is a very important step when going about makeup application. When going for a beauty makeup or a makeup to help your eye colour and skin tone stand out, generally speaking you want the base colour of your eye shadow to be complementary to your eye colour and skin tone pigment

Did you know that colour involves some of the most complicated things on Earth; light and the human eye and brain?  So to work successfully with colour, you require both emotion and knowledge

Think of some scenarios when you might need to know about colour …

  • Deciding what eye shadow to wear to make your eyes stand out?
  • Deciding what blusher will best suit your skin tone?
  • Deciding what foundation colour you need?
  • Giving advice to a friend on what lipstick she should wear?
  • Trying to conceal dark circles under your eyes?
  • Looking to cover up a tattoo temporarily?
  • Deciding the best makeup to wear with a specific outfit colour?

As a makeup artist I need to know about colour and how it affects a whole load of different things. For instance I need to know about a client’s skin undertone so I can select the correct colour based foundation.  If a client asks me what colour they should wear on their eyes I need to tell them the importance of using complementary colours and I need to be able to suggest some shades they should try

I’m sorry to have to break this to you, but if you want to get to grips with best way to enhance all your naturally gorgeous parts, then you need to get your head around colour!

Colour is an emotionally based additive which means that you can use it in your makeup to express your mood and highlight your style.  Its power potential is HUGE!

Make Up Like A Pro Colour: Part 1

DON’T PANIC though as I will talk and walk you through the most important parts over the course of this week

Before we get too technical about colour and its components, I want to first get your head around the different types of emotions that colour might evoke and where you might commonly see these colours in the makeup world

RED:  a great addition to lipsticks and nails, red symbolises energy and action and is often associated with sex, power and heat
ORANGES:  fantastic tones to use in your cheeks and lips, oranges symbolise the sun and warmth and is often associated with vitality and assertiveness
YELLOW: a great source of colour for highlights in your hair and on your skin, yellow symbolises power and life and is often associated with gold’s and Ancient times
BLUE: often used on nails and eyes, blue is known for peace and coolness and is commonly associated with water and health
GREEN:  often used on nails and eyes, green symbolises the green growth of plants and nature and is associated with the renewal of life
PURPLE: popularly used for eyes and lips, purple symbolises royalty and romance and is a colour that often arouses your sense of smell
PINK: so commonly used on lips and cheeks, pink is one of the most feminine of colours and provides a sense of sweetness and an image of purity

So do you see the importance of colour and how it impacts your daily style choices?  By the end of this week, my aim is to arm you with both specific AND generic information about colour so that you are able to make informed choices and judgements on what to wear that will make the most of yourself

After a gentle introduction today into the importance of colour and what it means to us all, tomorrow I will be telling you about the Colour Wheel and its components and how the Colour Wheel helps us to determine the best colours to choose every day

I want the WORLD to know about colour so please share todays post, leave a reply, post your comments and spread the Make Up Like A Pro love :)

The True Beauty of Makeup? By Make Up Like A Pro

Hey guys and girls. Hope you’ve all had a great week ? Can’t believe it’s 3 weeks till Christmas now! Hope that you’re all enjoying the run up? There’s plenty of festive treats to cast your eye over…including tonnes of beauty ideas for the festive period!

There’s never a shortage of topical articles during the week about makeup, hair, beauty, products, style, celebs… You name it … They’re talking about it. And we all know that the stuff we read can very often be negative and there’s often a negative skew on something that should be either neutral or positive!!I don’t know about you but I get kinda frustrated when that happens.  Did you see my earlier quote today?  About women and makeup?  Click here to check it out because its all along the same theme

A photo caught my eye this week as it caused a bit of a stir on twitter. The attached pic is of 3 gorgeous girls who are Victoria Secrets models. As you’ll see the photo is of each of the models before and after makeup

The True Beauty of Makeup

Now, when I look at that photo my instant reaction is what a GREAT job the makeup artist did at making these models look EVEN BETTER than they already do when they are natural. Their whole hair and makeup styling is stunning and it makes the most of these models BEST features. That’s my goal when I do a ‘beauty makeup’ on my clients. That’s also my goal when I do a makeup on myself! The products and their application can be used to work magic and can literally transform someone. I think of a face without makeup as a blank canvas. Something POSITIVE that I can look at and shape and create colours and depth. Bring out best parts and if necessary, work to conceal other parts. There’s absolutely NO SHAME in doing this and looking at the before and after shots is nothing more than a beautiful piece of live art. Seeing somebody’s reaction when they look at themselves after being transformed is priceless. To show somebody a few tips and tricks that will enhance their best features is incredibly rewarding

I was shocked and saddened though, as a lot of people got, what seemed to me, a morbid personal satisfaction from seeing photos of the models without makeup, and made comments about the girls looking “rough “. There were comments suggesting that the models were somehow not worthy of being gorgeous models as they look “rough” without their makeup. And that “at last we get to see what they REALLY look like” as if the general public have somehow been duped! These women are true beauties with fantastic features… their face and their bodies … and instead of looking at their transformation as something quite incredible, they get ridiculed for looking so different without makeup!

Shocked that people would be so narrow minded!

I guess my resulting feelings after reading those negative comments and wanting to write an article about it is that you should all (if you’re not already that is!) try and see the potential power behind your own brushes, pallets, creams, colours, products … All of it … and embrace the fact that makeup can be used to create a unique transformation in SO many ways

It’s in no way a negative force … A makeup artist to a blank face is like an artist to his canvas …it’s magic waiting to happen!

Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend

Go and create something new today you beautiful people!

Voila!

Beauty Blunders! By Make Up Like A Pro

Top Beauty Blunders! By Make Up Like A Pro

I’m taking a slight step away from the format that I would normally take for my posts and daily topics due mainly to the unforeseen circumstance that I found myself in on Friday… My A&E outing… ! I’m staying instead, with my earlier theme of “not always keeping on top of your beauty regime” and I’m going to chat to you about some common Beauty Blunders!

Top Beauty Blunders
Beauty Blunders revealed!

A recent survey was undertaken and published in Hello Magazine online which detailed the top beauty blunders that we have all, I’m sure, been guilty of … in the past …!?!

Looking at old photos, there are plenty of those “back in the day” moments when we were welcoming makeup into our lives for the first time and might have been a little heavy handed and careless when attempting to beautify ourselves!  I am sure that if we are all honest, then we can think of at least one occasion when we didn’t quite cut the mustard with our look J

Thanks to the survey though, it can be revealed what the most offensive makeup mistakes to make actually are! Can you guess what the first one might be?

Eyebrow overboard!  Yes, you might have guessed that going overboard with your eyebrow pencil is a massive NO NO!  Those heavily stencilled in brows made popular by certain WAGS topped the charts of makeup faux pas.  According to the study, it topped over-plucking and monobrows!

A close second in the makeup mishaps was foundation “tide” marks around your chin.  We all know what it’s like to do our makeup in a rush in the morning and the dim light in your bathroom might not provide a true reflection of what you are doing.  But you can guarantee that if you missed your blending opportunity and didn’t notice in the comfort of your own home that you’d failed to blend your foundation down your neck, then you can be assured that in the natural light of day, your quick efforts and their effects, won’t be concealed!

Top Beauty Blunders

Others mishaps included too much makeup, clumpy mascara, lipstick on your teeth, too much blusher and bad roots!  Goodness me, when our potential “failings” are laid out in black and white like that, it might send panic waves out there to you all!

DON’T PANIC!  To avoid all these Make Up Mishaps why not get into the habit of performing a quick final check list of all the potential “problem areas” before you leave your house so that you will never again be faced with the shame of becoming a makeup statistic!?

Starting at the top of your face move down each of your features and perform Make Up Like A Pro’s recommended personal check list:

(This is not an exhaustive list, but it should help you to get you into your own routine and start getting used to what areas you need to be aware of)

  • check your foundation is blended in your hair line (if you’ve taken it that far)
  • check your brows are even and compliment the rest of your makeup
  • see whether your mascara needs a gentle de-clump
  • check whether you have smudged your mascara before it got a chance to dry
  • check that your blusher compliments the rest of your makeup
  • check your teeth are free from lippie
  • check that your foundation blends evenly down your chin line
Top Beauty Blunders

At the end of the day though ladies, Makeup is such a personal choice and whether you favour thick or thin brows, dark or light blusher, dark or pale lips, roots or freshly coloured hair, that is your choice.  This article is intended purely to highlight areas that you might not have perhaps considered before!

Mid Week Madness … Date night sex appeal

Morning guys and girls

I don’t know about you but I’ve been washed out at work this week in London – we have been filming all week and the rain just keeps getting heavier!  Even my wellies are filling up!

Not good, so let’s spice things up a bit with a shot of sex appeal through your makeup.  Seeing as it’s mid-week (already?! again?! Have a look here for last weeks midweek article) I thought that I’d do a little mid-week madness and give you an idea for a  date night sultry sexy look that will have your fella weak at the knees … read on …

For that dewy look on your cheeks, keep your foundation application light and only apply where it’s absolutely needed, like around your nose, chin etc, to even out your skin tone.  Then smile into the mirrow and use a cream blusher on the apples of your cheeks

Take your liquid eyeliner and starting at the midpoint of your eye, create a sexy cats eye by flicking the outer line which will open up your “come to bed” eyes :) Apply black mascara to finish off your look

Keep your lips wet with a light pink or coral gloss and you’re ready for a sultry sexy mid week date night!

1970s Disco Fever by Make Up Like A Pro

So a friend of mine is off to a 1970’s party tomorrow night and asked me at Make Up Like A Pro for some tips… I’ve posted back to her on my Facebook LIKE page but I thought that I’d share it with you guys on here, especially as it’s a FRIDAY NIGHT!!  Wooh hoo

1970's VOGUE

Is anyone else going to a 1970’s party this weekend?  If so then share your makeup looks with me on here!

This is what I suggested to my friend though … see what you all think :)

The 70’s was GREAT for the Disco fever… and think Farrah Fawcett for your hair style as that’s pretty easy to mimic and will instantly drop you into the 70’s. See the attached photo and grab yourself some huge fat heated curlers and curl your hair in the direction off of your face in small sections. Carry this on all around your head to create lots of movement. Use hairspray that has some movement in it like Elnette Diamond hold or something similar to create a flexible hold look. You might need something stronger to hold the curl around your face

Farrah Fawcett
For your eyes think COLOUR! Blues and Yellow eye shadows were really popular. See the attached photo and mix it in with some glitter if you want to!Define your cheekbones with a complementary colour – peach or soft pink – (suck your cheeks in to create a hollow to find your cheek bones) and top them with some highlighter to show off your bone structureUse eyeliner over your entire eye lid lash line and kick it out at the edges in a slight cats flick. Finish your eyes off with some false lashes. For your foundation, think clean and dewy with a freshly moisturised look. Go for a light moisturising foundation or an illuminating creamAs your eyes should do most of the talking, make your lips less of a statement. Go for a glossy bright pink as it will make your lips slightly more subtle yet still flirtatious

Oh and don’t forget your nails!  Some women in the 70’s opted for bare nails and others opted for deep brick reds, browns and burgundies
Voilla!

Friday Fever’s End of the week Makeup… HELP! by Make Up Like A Pro

Good morning everybody

So it’s Friday … AT LAST! How are you feeling? Have you had a good week?

I’m not sure about you all but I’ve had a long week this week filming and I’ve been up before 5am each morning and in bed around 11pm so my skin is looking a little tired by this point in the week!  That’s why good makeup and skincare is an essential part of my daily regime

This is what I have been rocking out at 5am each morning !!

Friday HELP!

I needed a little bit of help to put that sparkle back into my eyes… I needed some makeup magic to give me the sparkle … And only took under 3 minutes to do all this …

I patted some MAC cream blush into the apples of my cheeks, dotted some of my trusted and favoured product, Touché Éclat, under my eyes and around the edge of my nose, put my L’oreal million dollar lash mascara on, cleaned up any smudges (it was 5am so the clean up was more than usual!!) and chucked some lip gloss on with a coral hue … When the sun eventually came up, the colour looked looked HOT in the light!I’ve pretty much been doing that every day this week :)

Thanksgiving THURSDAY Make Up Like A Pro Style

Give THANKS this Thanksgiving for ALL DAY Makeup and do it Like A Pro!

 For all of you guys that are celebrating Thanksgiving today, you’ll be busy running around cooking in a hot kitchen, cleaning the house… Generally running around like crazy, right?
So your face will be doing that marathon with you! This article gives you some great product ideas that will ensure that your makeup stays put all day with a minimum amount of touch ups throughout your day so you’ll remain picture perfect in every way
Apply a primer before you put your foundation on. This will not only help your makeup stay on longer but it will help your makeup go on more smoothly too.  Double bonus!  Using a primer is one of the key products when I’m doing someone’s makeup…
Mac prep and prime skin base visage is great
MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base Visage
Eyeshadow primers are a must have to stop that dreaded crease along your lids appearing as you get hotter!   They will keep your eyeshadow colour from disappearing and they will stop it from creasing.  It’s a superb  product
Pick a long wear foundation. Some are good for 14 hours! Take a look around and don’t be afraid to  ask the makeup counters for a tester so you can compare a few different ones. I use Yves Saint Laurent Teint Radiance and it’s stunning
YSL Teint Radiance
Apply your concealer with a brush as it will go on better and stay on better and make sure you set your foundation and concealer with a matte powder!
Have you tried using blotting papers before? They allow you to stay matte without the need to keep powdering, so you won’t get a build up of makeup throughout the day. They will rid your face of any extra oil without budging your makeup
 Try out a some cream eyeshadow and blend it into your crease and socket line and use a water-resistant eyeliner. This will keep your eyes looking freshly lined and so will give the illusion of a fresh-recently-applied makeup!
For lips that just keep on going, line your lips with a lip liner first and then colour in your entire lip with your liner. Then apply your lippie which you will now find will stick firmly on top!
If you follow these priceless recommendations you’ll be well on your way to keeping fresh-faced all day
