As an open-minded make-up ‘artist’ I find it strange that the majority of face charts represent only one type of face shape/features/skin tone: the female Caucasian. I have therefore produced a diverse range of Exclusively Themed ‘race’ face charts as a truer representation of the myriad of indigenous peoples around the globe. They also include unisex/transgender features. In my eyes, the ‘unhelpful’ terms ‘white’ and ‘black’ actually ‘divide’ and do not give a clear picture of millions of blended differences/mixed races. Most people will find that their DNA contains a blend of several, more ‘colourful’ origins.
The anthropological and geographical terms for ethnic peoples are given as: Caucasoid (mainly pale pink/beige European Aryans through to olive/light brown skinned Mediterranean Semitic and Hamitic Near Middle Eastern people), Mongoloids (beige to yellow toned Far East Asians, Native Alaskans/Canadians and olive to brown skinned Central Asians, Native First Nations of The Americas), dark brown skinned Negroids (ethnic groups originally from Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania, South Asia and Southeast Asia), Khoisanoids or Capoids (indigenous South Africans) and dark brown skinned ethnic Pacific races (Australian aborigines, Polynesians, Melanesians, Micronesians, Indonesians). These descriptions are purely a guideline, as there are exceptions such as those with unusual skin conditions (e.g. albinism, vitiligo).
List of Anthropological Terms for different Global Ethnic Races:
Chinese & Indochinese
Korean & Japanese
Tibetan & Burmese
Eskimo & Inuit
