Ben Nye's Creme Foundations are remarkably diverse to subtly blend with all complexions, or to theatrically transform performers into character. Foundations blend effortlessly with Concealers, Rouges, Highlights, Shadows, and Creme Colors. Intense pigmentation provides excellent coverage.
Proscenium (P) Series are classic colors ideal for characters where specialty shades are required. Vivid pigmentation for durability and dramatic results.
Lite (L) Series are soft, natural shades which impart a warm tan-peach tone from very fair to subtle tan-rose. Suitable for actors with fair skin tones.
Tan (T) Series are golden-tan shades suitable for blond to brunette Anglo performers.
Medium (M) Series are healthy, natural shades suitable for Anglo males. Best when applied thinly like a stain.
Maple (MA) Series are golden light-brown to rich brown tones which provide an attractive, contemporary palette of shades for performers of color.
Olive (Y) Series are natural shades for actors with olive skin tones. Also useful for olive-toned ethnic characters such as the Sharks in West Side Story.
Twenty (TW) Series are light olive to deep warm-browns. This series compliments brunettes, olive, and brown skin tones.
