When applying make-up, colour can be combined in various ways to create different results. Color can create a harmonizing effect by enhancing an individual’s natural colouring. It can also create drama.
- Similar colours harmonize
- Contrasting colours next to each other emphasize one another and add dramatize
- Applying a colour on top of its complementary colour (opposite colours on the colour wheel) will neutralize both colours.
- Light and dark colour worn side by side will dramatize the facial features making them appear more pronounced.
