The top question I'm asked, here on my blog, at demos and classes, and by email is... "what colours do I use for white/asian/black/indian/mexican skin?"
Well, to be honest that's a little like "how long is a piece of string?" because it's really all to do with personal preference. For instance, for white (caucasian) skin I use Burnt Orange, Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Blush - and when people see how dark the Burnt Orange is, they panic. When I started out with promarkers, over 3 years ago, I used Blush and Ivory. Some girls use Peach, Vanilla, or Satin - it's all down to experimenting and seeing what you like best. I tried lots of combinations betwen starting out and now, but I really like the healthy glow I get with the combo I use nowadays.
But I sat down and decided to work out some colour combos that I like for various skin colours, hopefully this will help you to experiment with colour combos and it's also a great guide for me, so hopefully you'll see more ethnicities being represented on my blog. And I also threw in a bit of a wildcard - you know how I have a bit of a thing for wild hair colours, well I decided to go with a wild skin colour too lol
So would you like to see all the colour combos I came up with?
And would you like to win the 11 colours I used for the Black, Asian and Hispanic skin tones?
