Understanding Color Theory & Color Correction: 1:15 PM – 4:15 PM Studio 2 Orlando Santiago – $140
Theory is used to allow us to understand how colors react to each other and how our eyes see that reaction. This reaction is the basis of all makeup design. Color theory applied in beauty makeup lets us enhance certain features like eye color, make educated choices to correct discoloration in the skin tone or skin imperfections, and helps with issues like under eye darkness. In more advanced or avant-garde makeup designs, color theory will help you create a unique and impactful end result. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to make your own foundations, customize colors to design the best looks for your clients, and develop your eye to see how color theory applies to all aspects of your work.
