One of my favorite little characters I made with real easy to work with and not expensive materials, it’s just a gelatin and glycerin prosthetic.
Check out a tutorial how to make it if ya wanna try playing with gelatin and glycerin 🙂
Color wheels can look different and be more or less, complicated, because of course there a grades of everything when it comes to color too, just to make it more tricky. But This color wheel shows it quite good, in a not to complicated scheme. But I will try to run you through this in small pieces, and step by step, so just be patient!
Anyway, in this chart you see on opposite of one of the red colors there are a more olive green, here called yellow-green, and thats more of the type of green used in corrector makeup, since it’s more close to some skin tones. And it naturalizes red-violet colors good, and thats more of the red colors we have in or on or skin, think of the color of our blood, it’s not red-orange exactly. But this is the foundation you need to know before we can start to add the actual makeup in skin tones, with this in your mind I will continue with some color schemes that can help you a lot if you know them as a base, before we get into the makeup products.
Primary colors are: Red,Yellow and Blue, and when you mix, for example: Red and Blue, you will get Purple, and Purple will then become a secondary color, as well as Orange and Green are.
Green and Red are each others opposite color, which means that they also neutralizes each other, so if you have red spots on your skin, you can take green make up and put it on your red spots and -Voila! Your red spots are gone, at least probably, it’s true, but of course it’s not really that simple, in one way it is, but on the other hand it’s not, but it’s a start, and if you got a very distinct blue-green vain or bags under your eye, you have to find some makeup with red-orange pigment in it to apply over for the bags or the vain to look less blue-green, to become neutralized.
