It’s been only a few months since I have been experimenting and able to get a hold of the power that is the Makeup Forever Flash Color Palette. This artist palette comes in Gold 004 (metallic gold), Coral 002 (vibrant coral), Turquoise 000 (light turquoise), Fuchsia 005 (bright fuchsia pink), Yellow 013 (vibrant yellow), Brown 023 (dark brown), Silver 003 (metallic silver), White 010 (pure white), Red 017 (bright red), Bright Blue 014 (bright royal blue), Leaf Green 008 (bright green), and Black 011 (pure black).
Recently, I blogged about the color theory wheel using Nicki Minaj as an example in this very basic concept in painting (ie. makeup). And it so coincides that the Flash Palette has become my favorite item whenever I want to layer, mix colors and deepen a certain hue in other words give it OOMPF, its texture is creamy so you have to be very careful and play around a bit. It is a very versatile tool, I have seen it on body paint, children’s facepainting parties and fashion makeup. So far, I’ve used it to do very intense colors for beauty shots, long lasting red lips, deep set smokey eyes, cheeks, etc.
The image above is a test shot with Jay Nodalo and below is what the palette looks like. The colors used on Victoria oozed for a vibrant combination to compliment her hair, skintone and wardrobe. I thought she looked amazing!
