Ratings and Reviews
The fastest way to understand colors.
If you work with color, you must have this app. I have been using it at least once a week, and have really been able to recognize more subtleties in color.
If you paint this app is for you
I bought this app to help train my brain about color theory without constantly referencing wheels. It’s super easy to understand and use and has already helped me so much! Highly recommend!
Color mixing? Sure. Flesh tones? Eh...no.
While this app could be quite helpful for understanding some very basic color mixing, for flesh tones I found that it fell quite flat.
I made it though the entire game in a matter of minutes and was left feeling pretty disappointed with my $2 purchase.
The final round that is supposed to focus on flesh tones specifically, maybe half the colors were even remotely flesh toned, and of those the lighter flesh tones were all warm or neutral, with ONE light flesh tone being cooler. Even some of the colors on the “cool” side are not cool. Coral/salmon are not cool colors. Not even remotely.
I can see this app having a lot of potential, but it still has quite a ways to go.
Developer Response ,
Hi, Jewelzroze! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts - always appreciated. Sorry for the delay in response; I just returned from teaching this approach at Makeup Artist Magazine’s IMATS in London and am getting over my jet lag.
It sounds like you are used to identifying colors as either WARM or COOL. The main focus of the app is to train (retrain) your eyes to see fleshtones (including freckles, blemishes, age spots, lip colors, blush, veintones and more) as either more YELLOW or RED. This is similar to how post-production colorists use the “Fleshline” to correct an actor’s skin tone, and how makeup brands like Make Up For Ever label their foundations Y and R instead of WARM or COOL.
Flesh Master is deceptively simple by design, but with that being said, one can zip through it quickly and miss out on each level’s benefits. Before giving up, I'd like you to please revisit and retry each level, reviewing the purpose of each level (by clicking the "?" at the bottom of the game page). Remember, concentrate on seeing each color as either more YELLOW or RED rather than WARM or COOL. When you get back to the Master and Flesh practice levels, visualize those colors not only as base colors, but as freckles, blemishes, age spots, etc. and beyond.
I hope that helps!
