this is not the deffinative or even the most brilliant tutorial on skin colouring - its just how i would do it
so here goes....
first of all I have done what I would consider an Afro- Carribean shade of skin tone..
starting with coral i have highlighted the blushed cheeks.. Ive used coral as the pink is that much richer in order to show through the brown tones afterwards to give that hint of a blush.
Next i take the darkest shade which in this case is Umber ( I always colour from dark to light) and colour under the hairline and around the side of the face which would be in shade
Now take the mid shade for which i have used Burnt Sienna - go over where you have already been with the Umber and move futher into the face - going over the cheeks and round the other side of the face. leave the central area clear. go over where the Umber can be seen with small circular motions with the pen to blend the two shades together. dont worry if all looks a bit dark..
now take the lightest tone (Cinnamon) and go ever everything... using the small circular motions over where you hava already coloured to tie in. finish by adding a tiny dot of white with a gel pen in the cheeks.
when the alcohol has dried from the pens you will see the final tones.
Now for my version of Asian skin tones...
starting as before with coral for the cheeks
now following the destructions as above use the darkest shade - this time Burnt sienna
now for a skintone that can be used for slightly more tanned tone than a white skin.
starting this time with sunkissed pink for the cheeks
for the darker tone use Caramel
and for the light tone use satin..this has quite a bleaching effect..if you loose your cheek tone then add some more sunkissed pink then and go over again with satin.
and now my version of oriental skin tone...
starting with sunkissed pink for cheeks
now the darkest tone - using saffron
and the finished dried result......
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial - please leave me a comment as i do like to read them xxx
