The Face Mask Texture is set to the built-in Eye Shadow Texture by default. To change the color of the Face Mask, select the Opacity Enable checkbox, and then choose your desired color from the color selector or enter a hexadecimal color code.

Adjust the Opacity to your liking by using the slider to set a value between 0 and 1, with 0 being transparent and 1 being opaque.

The Blend Mode uses different calculations to determine how to blend color and texture. For example, Multiply multiplies the values of the base color and texture color, whereas Normal uses only the color of the top texture layer. Select your preferred Blend Mode. Learn more about blend modes.
