If you want to understand makeup, you must understand two basic rules. Light and Color Theory. Both go hand in hand.
It's no secret that I love color and I love to mix color. I'm a slight #mixologist. I mix custom blend colors for my clients in our Chicago Makeup Studio, so hope my teaching method is easy to digest, even if it does seem elementary to my pro friends. Once you learn how to mix color, your life becomes so much easier as a makeup artist or, even someone who just likes makeup!
In this video, using this Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette, I show you a simple way to make any color and then adding that color to any of the lipsticks in the palette.
It's always great to keep a Color Wheel with you at all times.
NOTE: I misspoke about the color of black being absent of light in the video and too busy to re-record it. I teach lighting so much I guess my brain didn't communicate it when talking about pigment. Black is a color when it comes to pigment. Black is not a color when it comes to light since it's absent of light. Sorry for the blunder. #sendmorecoffee
