I’ve put together the colours I generally use for portraits.

I especially like using the green and purple for deeper shadows. It stops everything from looking too ‘brown-yellow’ and they’re light enough and sheer enough to layer.

Some darker shadows: E04, E13,E53

Olive, Eastern and African skins can use combinations of E13, E15, E17, E25, E27, E51, E53, E55,

*Caution regarding E04 as a lip colour. Use it for women, it’s a bit feminine for men.
