The Basic Fundamentals of Makeup:

Color Theory is one of the principal foundations of everything that the makeup artist does. Successfully recognizing and matching a client's skin tone and underlying tones, good corrective and camouflage makeup, enhancing or complementing natural coloring, all relies on color as much as makeup application techniques. Also, understanding what colors cancel each other out are essential for color corrections in makeup application. Skills in contouring and highlighting are also essential in building a good solid foundation in your makeup application. This workshop covers all of those basics and will have you finish your hands-on practice with a natural makeup look.
