Using Color To Your Advantage

Using Color To Your Advantage

Remember learning about the color wheel in art class way back when? Complementary colors (opposite colours) have the ability to cancel one another out when combined. If you’re thinking this is a random fact, it isn’t. When it comes to color correcting in makeup, knowledge of the color wheel actually comes in handy!

We add concealer to our makeup routine because, besides brightening, there are things we’d like to conceal from the world – like that raging pimple or those deep, dark circles. Have you ever used a butt-load of concealer and then wonder why the redness from your pimple is still coming through or why your dark circles are still showing? Your concealer isn’t all to blame; color correcting is missing from your routine! Color correcting before laying on foundation or concealer can make a big difference. What was once knowledge only to professional makeup artists is now becoming known to everyday makeup users.

Here are tips on how to use color correction in you makeup routine.

  • Green. Green cancels out red. So whether it’s acne, rosacea or a sunburn you’re looking to hide, a green color corrector will do the trick.
  • Purple. Purple combats dull, yellow skin.
  • Yellow. Yellow cancels out purple discolouration and brightens for those with medium to dark skin tones.
  • Pink. For paler skin tones, pink corrector is great for concealing dark circles, age/sun spots and brightening.
  • Peach. For fair to medium skin tones, a peach corrector is great for concealing dark circles, hyperpigmentation and bruises.
  • Orange. For medium to dark skin tones, an orange corrector is great for concealing dark circles, hyperpigmentation and bruises.
  • Red. For deeper skin tones, a red corrector is great for concealing dark circles. Red can also be used to cancel out green (e.g. tattoos).

Fashion For a Cause

Fashion For a Cause

Every year we hold a competition among our amazing TSPA students to come up with hair, makeup and costume designs for the Christmas Gift Fashion Show. This year’s theme was “ROAR”. Our costumes, hair and makeup were influenced by “The Chronicles of Narnia”. The winners get to participate in preparing models for the show, and get to attend the sold-out event which raises funds for families in need during the holidays. We are so proud of our students and educators for their amazing talents, passion, inspiration and dedication to such a great charity.
