In 2010 Terri opened Terri Tomlinson Makeup Training Academy (TTMTA) offering classes and workshops to new and existing artists. Covering all aspects of the industry from technique to creating a business, Terri offers each of her students a hands-on and personal approach to professional makeup artistry. In 2017 Terri invented The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™, a creative teaching tool for anyone who works with skin. As an essential guide to tone, color and correction, this one-of-akind wheel is revolutionizing the way makeup artists work with color. Using The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ has led Terri to create a method of working color theory in neutrals. This method allows artists to actively employ color theory in all of their decisions. It both simplifies and deepens the artist experience. As a beauty expert and someone who is “obsessed with color theory”, Terri is currently working with brands using The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ to understand color in skin and makeup. Terri also travels internationally teaching color theory in flesh tone and is creating new programs on color for the beauty industry. Her mission: a color revolution!
