Hey Edwin,

thanks for posting the color pallete. For applying them to a photo, I downloaded the pic from the challenge here, then I did some experimenting and I found that a technique that works quite well is to create an empty layer on top of the original, set it to overlay, then use the paintbrush at about 10% opacity and just paint using the colors from the pallete. The reason I used that technique is because it keeps the "digital makeup" from getting a painted on look (because it's in overlay mode) and since it's on a new layer it's completely editable later if you decide you want to lessen an effect or take out a part that didn't work well.

Smile Makeup applicatios

I have a book by Carole Jackson that talks about color and makeup application. The book is called " Color Me Beautiful MakeUp Book." You might find this in the library, but if not, check out the book stores or

She addresses everything by seasons, Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer and the associated colors for each of them. She shows eye shapes and brows.

The colored pages are few, but enough to help you to follow along with the rest of the text. It's a very good book.
