Hello Again Beautiful People!
All colours derive from three fundamental colours called primary colours. The three primary colours are yellow, red and blue; however, mixing primary colours will create new colours called secondary colours. Secondary colours are orange, violet and green, they are intense and vivid as primary colours.
Yellow is a warm colour, blue is a cool colour and red is considered a neutral colour. When red is mixed with yellow it becomes a warm colour; likewise when red is mixed with blue, it becomes a cool colour. Brown is a balance of primary and secondary colours, while black and white are not considered colours. They are used to lighten or darken colours. If you want to tint a colour add white, if you wish to tone a colour add grey and if you want to shade, add black.
As professional Makeup Artist, I often transform makeup by manipulating the hue, intensity and value of products to create fantastic colour variations. The hue is the actual colour, the intensity is the brightness or dullness of the colour and the value is the lightness or darkness of the colour.
There you have it Beautiful People, be artistic and create “A Burst of Colours,” and you will be amazed by your creativity and originality.
