Inspired by his work on numerous Star Trek shows, Makeup Artist, James Mackinnon thought it was time to put his favorite colors in a custom palette.  The Custom Skin Illustrator James Mackinnon’s Galaxy Palette is a combination of classic Skin Illustrator colors and three new colors (Cashew and Luca were created by James Mackinnon. Tootzey Role Mekash, created by Mike Mekash).  Congratulations to James for winning the 2019 Emmy award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series.  From beauty to character and SFX, the Galaxy Palette is an integral part of this award winning show, Star Trek – Discovery.

The colors  can easily be applied with a brush, sponge or mascara wand.  Use it alone, or mix the colors with any of the other Skin Illustrator tones to create your own unique blend of  color.

You must use Skin Illustrator Activator,  Skin Illustrator Slow Activator,  or 99% alcohol to activate the color pigment.  Do Not use  70% alcohol, MEK, acetone, water or any other solvent.

Removal is easy with PPI’s Telesis Super Solv or Telesis Makeup Remover.

Cracking, Bubbling, etc

Due to the high pigment content and lack of unnecessary fillers in the Skin Illustrator color system, cracks, bubbles and any shrunken appearance that may occur in some dried color cells does not affect the quality or performance of the product in any way.
