About Blueprints Cosmetics

Why harmonious makeup?

When colours are in harmony, their combined effect is stunning, a 1+1=3 equation that is beautiful to behold.

The makeup colours that belong with your colours have profound appearance effects, even more than with apparel because they are applied directly to the skin. The colours in the Blueprints line of cosmetics have been selected using colour theory and wide client experience to offer you a menu of only excellent choices.

No more hit and miss of buying similar colours that are two degrees either way. No more trying to figure it out yourself. And no more missing out on the effect you were hoping for.

Every person is an individual

Your Season tells you which colours to wear in attire, and which to avoid. The mall-sized field of possibilities is narrowed down to a collection where every item has a high probability of being gorgeous for you, like shopping in a store dedicated to your colours. 

Within any Season, cosmetics may look slightly different on various women. We all have nuances in our complexions, variations in skin chemistry, different eye and hair colours. All of these affect a product’s final appearance. We also have our own preferences in cosmetic formulations and desired effects.

Red in particular is a colour which we notice and react to strongly, more so than to neutral colours of, say, eyeshadows. So for lip and blush colours, especially lip, try before buying, both on this website and from the cosmetic lists for your Season that your colour analyst may have provided. Your colour analyst may try a variety of lip colours at the time of your colour analysis or may be able to provide you with samples to try at home.

The eyeshadow palettes always work. They offer you five choices of neutral colours, the most difficult to select, especially in cosmetics. The colours are not intended to be the only eyeshadows you ever own, although they might be since they mix and match so easily. Use them with your current colours. You might also use them to gauge colours from other cosmetic lines. Smudge them on paper; if they all look like they grew on the same tree, they'll probably work beautifully with your eyes.

Samples

These may be available through your local colour analyst. Not all analysts carry the Blueprints cosmetics line, or may only stock certain items. Ask at the time of your PCA appointment.
