Skin Illustrator was developed by award-winning film makeup artist Kenny Myers when an increasing pressure to have premixed color available at a moment’s notice became critical — like an Assistant Director looking over your shoulder while you frantically mix a color for final touchups in front of camera. Thus, out of necessity came invention.
Over the past few years, both Kenny and Karen Myers have expanded the Skin Illustrator line to fill color voids in the system and to accent the artistic needs of other leading makeup artists and hairstylists. As the needs of the industry evolve and grow, it is our goal to grow and improve to give the artists as much choice as possible.
In 2000, CMI/Skin Illustrator and Premiere Products Inc. joined in collaboration to make Skin Illustrator available worldwide. Premiere Products Inc. is a licensed FDA manufacturer and, as such, manufactures and distributes under strict FDA regulation. Skin Illustrator is the only like material that has been human tested by the California Skin Research Institute.
What does all this mean to you? Not a thing, except that the Skin Illustrator materials you use on your actors and models are safe and clean.
