Terri Tomlinson

Makeup Artist, Educator


Terri Tomlinson is a working makeup artist, global educator and creator of The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™. She has worked in the beauty and production industries for 30 years and opened Makeup Training Academy in 2010. Terri currently travels the world teaching her new method of color theory in neutrals, works with cosmetic brands on color development and trains professional makeup artists.

Her mission is for The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ and color theory in neutral to be the standard by which all makeup artists learn and work with color theory.

As a working makeup artist, Terri began her career working with lines like Bobbi Brown and Prescriptives. Later after studying makeup for camera at MUD she began working in the production industry. There she created super natural camera ready makeup for all mediums, focusing on HD and commercial print.

In 2010 she opened Makeup Training Academy in order to share her experience and offer professional makeup education to north Texas. Makeup Training Academy focuses on “old school” application, technical skill, theory and a strong understanding of the industry.

In 2017 Terri created The Flesh Tone Color Wheel™ for her students to use while in class. The wheel was an instant success and changed the way Terri worked with color theory. Color Theory in nuetral brings the principles of color theory to life for the working makeup artist. It is brilliant! The success of the wheel and Terri’s method has led to working with brands, schools and artists all over the world.

Terri’s Makeup Studio is located at 15713 Quorum Dr Addison TX 75001
