I have another skin tone tutorial in the Tutorials tab at top of the page and this first part is using the same colours which I find nice for newbies wanting to get a bit more adventurous than just using blush all over!
The colours I've used here are
BABY PINK or PALE PINK for cheeks
STEP 1 - Here I've added the IVORY leaving just a bit of white in the centre.
STEP 2 - Add the BLUSH going over most of your ivory (I always use the palest colour as a guide so I can see the image better)
STEP 3 - Add VANILLA leaving part of the BLUSH showing.
STEP 4 - Add PALE PINK or BABY PINK for the cheeks then colour over all the skin with your IVORY. Next use SANDSTONE around the edges of the image as a shadow and then repeat STEP 1 - 4 to give a greater depth.
Your finished result should look something like this! This is a good basic combo for getting to grips with using more than 2 skin tones as you cant go much wrong on it. I used this combo for a long time until getting more adventurous!
This one is getting more adventourous with the tones, you might panic and think eeeek at first especially when you put the coral on but it all comes together in the end!
The colours I've used are...
STEP 1 - Colour in your face as above (Step 1 & 2) using IVORY and BLUSH then add some bold shadows using CORAL.
STEP 2 - Add BABY PINK cheeks and use CINNAMON around the hairline and down the darkest part of the face.
STEP 3 - Use BLUSH to partly blend in towards the white part in the centre then add a small amount of IVORY over the entire skin area.
STEP 4 - Repeat all the above steps to get some depth to your image then add a line of CORAL and smaller line of CINNAMON over the nose then blend them all in again.
STEP 5 - Whilst the ink is still wet add in more BABY PINK then a smaller dot of ROSE PINK in the centre of the cheek and use your IVORY to blend it all in.
This combo works really really well with Magnolias too which I'll show you in a couple of days :)
