So, my advice is to (on clean skin) do a color test. How do you do that?

On your arm or wrist, clean the area and dry it completely. Apply a stripe of color to the area. Cover it with tape or a band-aide overnight. The next day, look at the test. If the skin patch shows irritation we know that color is chemically not for you. My mentor, Miss Georgette Klinger, once said, “Sometimes the colors we love don’t love us back”. She meant that not only tone or shade-wise, but the chemistry of the “Make-up” might not jive with your skin’s chemistry.

And, this is the rule for all complexion products as well (primers, foundations, concealers, highlighters, blush, bronzers, etc., etc.). Miss Klinger was ahead of her time with so very much.

If you are still uncertain, “Ask Michael”. I’m glad to help. I have been putting on happy faces for over 34+ years and

I love my Work. And just to think it all started because someone once put the wrong colors on me in a play. I went into her box and changed my look and my life. I no longer wanted to be an Actor — No! I was about to discover my passion — Make-up!

I love what I do, and it’s why I always say. “Why look Good when you can look Great!” ™

Till next time — Love to you all, please Ask Michael — I am always here to help!

I am Michael Waterman. I have been known as an authority on make-up and skin care for decades. Why? I am a fortunate person. I was a freelancer in Cosmetics for a long time. In 1986 I caught the eye of company called Intelligent Skin care (I.S.) they are an incredible Japanese cosmetic company. They combined nature and high-tech Beauty science, and I was thrilled to be a part of their team. I discovered so much about what Americans wanted in a Skin care/Make-Up line (and I had to do it with a Japanese Cosmetic company!). We used state of the art (in 1985) machines and computers to test and advise our clients of the condition of their skin. I learned so very much. In1989 I was honored to join the exclusive team of skin care and make-up professionals at the world famous Georgette Klinger Spas. Ms. Klinger took a liking to me and became my mentor and a loving force in my life. Georgette Klinger was the reining authority on skin care. She brought old world know-how herbal wisdom and science into a whole new Genre -- The spa. In 1939 she came to America From Europe and single handedly revolutionized the Science of Beauty. I was with her for 17 years and became one of the most requested Make-Up artists and Skin care Professionals in her company . I know she would be proud of Me today. I still feel her spirit with me as I do my work, and I keep the principles she taught me. My clients are the better for it.
