How to Apply DMKC Makeup
The DMK Foundation application process is a highly effective one as a result of the technically advancements base formulation. Applied correctly, the DMK Foundation will cover skin imperfections and leave the skin looking refreshed, and clear from any skin demarcation. On clear skin, DMK Foundation will create a “clearness of skin tone” unlike any foundation the client has ever used; covering all minor skin imperfections with only a sheer application.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT FOUNDATION COLOUR
DMK Foundations are divided into five separate series. In each series there are five colours ranging from light to dark. These series have been specially designed to accommodate all skin tones to perfectly matching the skin’s major skin tone. The mixing is may be done by using the stainless steel palette and spatula.

DEPTH OF COLOR – SKIN TONE
After establishing what type of skin tone and colour the skin has, decide what depth of colour shade within the series is needed to make an exact match.
If the skin tone is lighter, a lighter shade within the series may be selected. If the skin tone is darker, then one of the darker skin tone foundation colours should be selected.
In some cases, a unique skin tone may require special mixing. This is accomplished by utilizing the stainless steel palette and spatula. Adjusting the base tone of the selected foundation is accomplished by understanding the principles of the corrector colours.
Taking a specific colour like the Red Neutralizer I will diminish the amount of red in the selected foundation by adding the neutralizer. Adding too much of any neutralizer may not only remove the “redness”, but also lighten (or darken depending on the foundation colour selected) the foundation.
