This photo project might just be the solution to all of our mismatched foundation woes. It seems photographer, Angelica Dass, has constructed a project called ‘humanæ‘, where she extracts and labels her subject’s exact skin shade in Pantone color. Cataloging most skin tones, this could be revolutionary for makeup matching!! See more about this project below.
Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme. (PANTONE® Guides are one of the main classification systems of colors, which are represented by an alphanumeric code, allowing to accurately recreate any of them in any media. It is a technical industrial standard often called Real Color) The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11×11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.
