As a microblade artist, you will find that basic color theory plays a significant role in the colors that are chosen for each client. Knowing the basic fundamentals of how color heals in the skin and what colors to choose ore two of the key elements to becoming successful.
And what is color wheel? Why is it very important in microblading skill?
Let’s explore color wheel in microcblading art with The Aura Beauty Academy!
Color wheel is a diagram that illustrates when colors are mixed together, and the variety of beautiful colors that can be made. Generally, microblade artists buy colors already premixed, but it’s smart to educate yourself on the basics of the color wheel and the theory of how colors are mixed. Being knowledgeable about colors will guide you through the process of mixing and correcting colors. if needed. As you can see in the color illustration above, the main colors make new exciting color.
This is done by mixing primary, secondary or tertiary colors together to make the following color:
- Warm Colors are red, yellow, and orange. These colors evoke warmth because they remind us of things like the sun or fire.
- Cool Colors are blue, green, and purple (violet). These colors evoke a cool feeling because they remind us of water and grass.
- Neutral Colors are gray and brown. These aren’t on most color wheels, but they’re considered neutral because they don’t contrast with much of anything. They’re dull and uneventful.
- Value refers to the amount of black in a color. The more black a color has, the darker its value.
- Brightness refers to the amount of white in a color. The more white a color has, the brighter it is.
- Shades are mixtures of a hue and black.
- Hues refers to a pure color: one without tint or shade.
- Tints are mixtures of a hue and white.
- Tones are mixtures of a hue and its complement or grays.
- Saturation refers to the amount of a color used. When a color is at full saturation, it is extremely vibrant. When a color is “desaturated” a large amount of color has been removed. Desaturated colors are to be neutral because there is so much gray in them.
- Complementary Colors are red and green, blue and orange and purple and yellow. These are the colors directly across from each other on the color wheel. They’re called complementary colors because when seen next to each other they become extremely vibrant and have heavy contrast. These are colors you’ll need to know when neutralizing (or correcting) a color.
- Analogous Colors are red and orange, blue and green, ect. These are colors right next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match extremely well, but they also create almost no contrast.
