The  Skin Illustrator Mekash Colors are a custom collection of liquid colors created by Emmy Award Winning makeup artist, Mike Mekash.   Throughout his celebrated career, Mike has blended an array of Skin Illustrator colors, to fit his specific needs. These color combinations have evolved over the years and this collection, represents some of Mike’s favorite and most often used creations. Blood Orange, Blood Yellow, Hematoma 2 and Tootzey Role. 

The Mekash Colors are specifically designed for airbrushes.  The colors are safe for use on the lips, skin, hair and around the eyes.  The colors can also be used with PAX, rubber mask grease, foam latex, gelatin, plastic and silicone appliances.

All colors can be applied with a brush, sponge or mascara wand.  As always you can use the color as is. The colors can also be mixed with any other Skin Illustrator colors — allowing you to create your own unique blend of colors — therefore giving you endless possibilities.

You must use Skin Illustrator Activator,  Skin Illustrator Slow Activator,  or 99% alcohol while activating and using the colors.

Do not use any other solvents — for example 70% alcohol, MEK, acetone or water. These will result improper activation or damage to the product.

The Skin Illustrator Liquid Colors can be used with any airbrush.

“I love mixing colors, and when something works consistently, that’s the end goal. Through my own mixing, or with input from great artists who share their knowledge, these are my go-to colors. Blood Orange and Blood Yellow are great corrector colors for when you find an area of your makeup which has turned that annoying blue or purple tone, and it surprises you when you’re close to being done. They bring life back to the skin in a hurry. When you have only time for one more color pass but you want to add five…  Hematoma 2 is great for that close-to-the-surface trauma look. Tootzey Role works for all those times when you need a tone that is caramel brown and has a bit of candy red pop.”  — Mike Mekash

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.
