COLORS AND MAKEUP

08/04/2015 11:26

  

The makeup artist is an artist, where the screen is the face of the person to be glossed over. Except that unlike the painter's canvas, which the vast majority is flat and white, the human face has several features such as the shape of the bone structure, tone and skin texture.

Like any artist who works with color, the makeup artist should understand the basics of color theory in order to know how colors work in every person, as a color will influence the other when together, side by side or mixed.

In this post, I'll teach some basics of color theory through the color wheel of the study.

What differentiates the artist makeup of a person who applies makeup is the understanding of this theory.

 

When we speak of colors we must distinguish between the light-color and color-pigment. Color light and energy, caused by the emission of direct light, which is found in a visible light radiation with a particular wavelength. How, for example, the different shades of color seen in the sky on a sunny day. This variation is explained by the different positions of the sun during the day, making certain radius of light, with specific wavelength, scroll a bit different from others, prevailing and changing the color of the sky momentarily.

Pigment, color reflected from an object, or the color that the human eye perceives.

During the day, the pigment color does not vary with time or with the light source position

 

The two ends of the color classification are: white, total absence of color, that is, pure light; and black, the total absence of light, which causes not reflect any color. These two "colors" are not exactly colors, but the light characteristics, which usually call color.

Characteristics:

All colors have three characteristics: hue, tone and intensity.

Hue - is the defining characteristic and distinguishes one color. Blue, red and yellow are hues. When mixed, blue and yellow, we create another hue: green. In summary, the primary colors are shades, as well as secondary and tertiary. The mixture hues gives rise to another hue.

Tone-Refers to a greater or lesser amount of color in this light. By adding black to a hue, it gradually becomes darker, reducing the light intensity. This graduation is known as tonal scale. Adding white to a hue, get lighter tonal scale with higher light intensity.

Intensity - has to do with the color brightness. A high intensity of hue is vivid, bright, like yellow. A low intensity hue is more off, as the pastel colors.

Colors can be classified as:

1 - Primary, secondary, tertiary.

    

PRIMARY COLORS - They are pure colors, which do not decompose. Together they form all other colors. Both in the color group as the color pigment of light are the primary color

In group color light, RGB is the system formed by the red, green and blue (red, green and blue).

    

In the color pigment group there are two systems:

RYB - Red, yellow and blue (red, yellow and blue). This system is best suited to be applied in makeup.

     

CMYK - cyan, magenta, yellow and black (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). System more used in advertising.

        

For the other ratings we will rely on the RYB system.

SECONDARY COLORS  - are formed skin junction of two primary colors:

blue + yellow = green, red + blue = purple and yellow + red = orange

                          

TERTIARY COLORS - are formed by adding the primary color with a secondary. Are the other 06 Circle colors.

                        

Blue + Green = blue-green or blue pool.

Green + Yellow = greenish yellow.

Orange + Yellow = orange or yellow gold.

Orange + red = orange red.

Red + violet = dark pink.

violet + Azull = avioletado blue.

2 - HOT OR COLD:

           

HOT COLORS - Warm colors are bright, passionate and energetic. Are associated with the heat and the sun. They are red, orange and yellow, and variations of these three colors.

In makeup, red can be hot or cold, depending on the secondary color that originated. Dark pink, purplish red are cold, red orange, pure red are hot. The same goes for the green yellowish green is pure hot and cold gree

 COLD COLOURS - transmit a sense of calm and are associated with water and ice. Are violet, blue and green.

3 - ANALOGOUS AND COMPLEMENTARY

ANALOGOUS -  In the circle of colors, analogous are the colors that are close together.

COMPLEMENTARY COLORS - In the circle of colors are the opposite.

                   

 COMBINATION OF COLOURS IN MAKE UP

  

In makeup are allowed all colors for all people, whether young or mature adult. However, you must meet certain criteria such as:

1 - Self-knowledge and not want to fight with his personality. For example, not every woman wears a long red dress, big cleavage breasts without being vulgar. This woman has a strong personality and is safe and confident that the dress is perfect on it. Even if you have a super body, without having security in who is wearing the result will be disastrous. Makeup is asimm if you do not feel safe to wear a red shadow or a bright orange, do not use,

2 - Learn how to combine colors and harmonious, with the tone of your skin.

3 - Make-up is an act of social communication, information, even unconsciously, we are always transmitting something that goes beyond the beautiful / ugly. In particular, the colors condençam strong evaluative load fueled by belief systems each people. Here, the secret is to acquire fully aware of these meanings to be reliable and consistent when composing a character or strengthen a certain clear and specific social value.

In addition, to criticize or transcend the values ​​and ideas set out in search of full artistic freedom, as well as the attitude and talent, knowledge is, otherwise, the form of essential art to be taken by simple ignorance or vulgar offense.

If makeup is pink, eyes and mouth, and put a pink blush, this will give a romanticism information. But if the blush is orange, break all this harmony makeup and will not transmit any information and will have no meaning.

4 - Local -Know to use right makeup. Day and night are allowed to abuse the colors, but with common sense. At work, you should use a proper makeup to the environment of their work. If you work in a hospital, a makeup with more pastel colors is more appropriate. But if it is a landscape artist, how to combine colors is part of their profession, therefore, use and daring with colors. And so on.

 

TYPES OF COMBINATION:

 - MONOCHROME COLOR COMBINATION:

It is when we use a single color with varying tones. If you opt for this type of combination, use strong colors as the main and soft details. Using a single color, right combination, it's beautiful.

  LOOK ALL PINK.

 

 LOOKS ALL ORANGE.

 LOOKS ALL PURPLE.

            LOOKS ALL RED.

- COMBINATION WITH ANALOGOUS COLORS:

Choose a color in the color circle, the neighbor on the right and the left neighbor are analogous in that color. This way, you can choose two or more colors and use creativity to mount the look.

RED MOUTH AND THE UPPER PART ORANGE EYES ARE ANALOGOUS COLOURS TO LOWER PART EYES RED-ORANGE.

VIOLET COLOR PURPLE AND COLOR ARE ANALOGOUS ONE OF ANOTHER.

PINK MOUTH AND THE LOWER PART OF PURPLE EYES ARE ANALOGOUS TO EYE TOP VIOLET.

 

PURPLE AND BLUE ARE SIMILAR ONE OF THE OTHER. THIS LOOK YOU CAN USE A PURPLE LIPSTICK, ON KILLING AS CREATING RED OR ANALOGOUS COLOURS A COMPLEMANTARY COMBINATION  IRIS GREEN EYES.

THAT MAKE UP MY COLORS ARE ANALOGOUS SHADOWS, NOW LIPSTICK AND IRIS OF MY GREEN EYES ARE COMPLEMENTARYS

 

- COMBINATION WITH COMPLEMENTARY COLORS. 

This is what happens when we choose colors that are on opposite sides of the circle. If the person has blue eyes should use yellow gold shadows, as more had stressed the eyes of blue. If you have green eyes, you should use red shades. The same theory can be applied to the choice of the lipstick color. If you use a green shade can put red lipstick. But you can also choose two or more complementary colors or two complementary colors with two analogous colors. There goes the creativity of each.

 

NO CÍCULO COLORS ORANGE It SUPPLEMENTARY TO BLUE AND VICE VERSA. THIS LOOK is CONSELHADO USE AN ORANGE LIPSTICK.

GREEN IS COMPLEMENTARY TO RED AND VICE VERSA.

THE SHADOW BLUE IS COMPLEMENTARY ORANGE LIPS AND ANALOGOUS IRIS GREEN EYES.

 - COMBINATIONS TRIAD.

   

Happen when we choose three colors that are equidistant on the color circle, creating a mix of vibrant colors like red, yellow gold and green. But choose a color to be the dominant and look leave the other for the details.

 

PINK, YELLOW ORANGE AND BLUE POOL ARE EQUIDISTANT ON THE COLOR WHEEL.

              

These are the rules, but every rule allows exception then stimulates your creativity and create your own rule, but have common sense and respect the harmony between colors and the message you want to convey.

Hola Maria, un amigo artista de maquillaje en París, me habló de su blog, descubierto por casualidad y que apreciaba. Yo también soy un artista de maquillaje y tu blog es muy bueno, usted escribe muy bien, ha publicado que no tienen la mitad de la calidad de sus textos. Me encantó este texto en color, está muy bien explicado, aprendido nuevas combinaciones. Otro hecho que me llamó la atención es que el blog no tiene vídeos, que es la fiebre en YouTube, mostró una personalidad, me pareció muy bueno. Enhorabuena por tu trabajo. Éxito.
