I am the kind of person that if even every single bit of photo shoot is super planned and the looks are generated, my creativity hits me unexpectedly. That sort of feeling like ‘let’s do what’s planned and do some bonus shots with something way different’…
And Make Up For Ever 12 flash color makes my life easier on those moments. Even if my artist kit is packed directly for a natural look shoot, I pack this palette. Just in case…
It’s a very creamy and strongly pigmented colours in one light plastic case.
So what does it do? Hmmm… About everything, should I say?
First and the most obvious, you can use them for painting face and body, creating colourful designs. As well it’s amazing for creating any lip art (silver, white and bright blue are not recommended to use on the lips though).
You can use them as any sort of base for the following makeup designs. Make sure to prep the skin and set the cream colour really well, because otherwise all the effort would slide off. (Unfortunately coral, fuchsia and red are not recommended to use on the eyes… What a bugger).
Not so obvious- that you can use it for contouring, highlighting and as a blush. Plus only having one shade of foundation and mixing it with these cream colours give you an option of making the matching shade for anyone… Need a peachy concealer for brightening an under eye? Grab your favourite concealer, mix a little bit of coral colour and there you have it!
And the fun part is that the colour selection in the palette gives you an option of mixing any shade of your dreams, so there is no need of carrying an excessive collection of all the colours in the world. It’s definitely an artist material and I wouldn’t necessarily use it for my daily makeup though.
It smells like paint (and it actually is a paint) but you don’t really feel the smell unless you put your nose in the package.
