In 2017 Terri created The Flesh Tone Color WheelTM, a creative teaching tool for anyone who works with skin. As an essential guide to tone, color and correction this one-of-a-
kind wheel is revolutionizing the way makeup artists work with color. Working with The Flesh
Tone Color WheelTM has led Terri to create a method of working color theory in flesh tone.
This method allows artists to actively use color theory in all of their decisions. It both simplifies
and deepens the artist experience.
As a beauty expert and someone who is “obsessed with color theory”, Terri works with
brands on color theory and understanding color in skin and makeup. Terri also travels
internationally teaching her method of working color theory in flesh tone to makeup artists
and schools. She is currently creating a color theory in flesh tone program for schools.
Her mission it to create a color revolution!
