The ‘W’ series of the Kryolan TV paint sticks: These come in a variety of shades ranging from 1W to 12W in a handy 25g twist up stick container. The ‘W’ series have many uses and are the preferred foundations for makeovers and photoshoots and for drag and stage performers, as these tend to give good conststant results for the desired image. The 1W acts as a good concealer or beard cover for drag performers and for those with darker 'bags' under their eyes, combined with your chosen shade acting as the foundation over the top.
1W: for use as a concealer. 2W/3W: for very pale white skin. 3W/4W: for pale to medium white skin. 5W: for medium or ordinary skin. 6W: for tanned skin colour. 7W: for light Asian skin. 8W: for darker Asian skin. 9W/10W: for darker skin. 11W/12W: for darkest African skin colours. The TL1 and TL3 setting powders work with all these foundations but for 2W/3W and 8W - 12W the TL1 would wor better.
NB: A more natural beige colour and comparable to the 4W in shade. BT: This is a darker, more natural beige colour and comparable to the 5W in shade.
