Hi, my name is Shannon, I'm a makeup artist. Today, I am going to show you how to apply heavy makeup for porcelain skin. So, let me show you the products you can use to achieve this look. Moisturizer and primer, then your foundation. Then we want to conceal. Of course, we are going to do some blush and bronzer. And then for the eyes we are going to do a cream eye shadow, some nice fun eye shadows with all these brushes. We are also going to do a gel eyeliner in black. Some mascara, some really cool lashes. And a nice nude lip with a fun pink gloss. Start by applying your moisturizer all over the face. We are going to just dab it all around and blend, just like that. Next, let's apply our waterproofing primer. Squirt it directly right onto the brush. Next lets apply our liquid foundation. Place it all around the face and start to blend just like that. Lets apply our concealer. So start applying right underneath the eye here getting really close to your lash line and inside of the eye here in the corner. And go over the eyelid as well just to get any discoloration that's on the eyelid. You can also spot treat at this point. To cover redness just blend right over the area. Usually it's around the nose through the cheeks. You can go ahead and set it with a powder puff. So bronzer comes in a few ways. You are probably familiar with powders, also creams. Creams is what I recommend. You got to use a synthetic brush when applying your cream bronzer. We are going to blend. By using creams it's going to keep you looking glowing and dewy. So I'm blending it all the way down around my jaw line, my hair line, and right there against my cheekbone. Okay. Now, let's apply our cream blush. Using your synthetic brush dip into your color. Pick up a little bit. So generally, you want to apply it in the peak of the bone. A lot of people put it on a more so on the apple when they smile and they put it here. But my technique I like to put it a little bit higher to really draw out that cheekbone. Also by putting it on the cheek up here higher it gives you an instant lift. It draws the attention higher on the face like that. Now lets apply our cream eye shadow base. You are going to apply it from the lash line to the brow line. This is going to help set your makeup and allow it to stay on longer. We are going to start by putting a cream along the eyelid from bottom to top. Next we are going to start applying our shadow. This would be our lid color. Next we are going to use a small precision brush to highlight our brow bone. With our third color we are going to choose a deeper tone to get some contouring. We are going to place it right on the outer corner of the eye on both eyes. And really just combine all those colors and soften any harsh lines. If you have anything fall down just sweep it away. It cleans right up. Then your dark color here. And we are just going to line under the eye and intensify this eye area here. We also want to highlight the inside corners too. So go back to your highlighting color and just get right in there in the corners by the tear duct. Now lets move on to our eyeliner. Try to go a little bit thicker towards to the outer edge of the eye. And you can just wing it outside here. Take a black pencil and rim the inside of the eye along the waterline top and bottom. This is going to add some more intense dramatic effects. And before you do your lashes do a mascara. We really want to coat our lashes so they blend in well with our false lashes. It's also going to add some more volume. And now you are ready for your lashes. So now we just have to add lips. So, I'm just adding a nude lip to this eye makeup so it will balance it out and not be too strong. So, that's how you apply heavy makeup for porcelain skin.
