Hi, my name is Shannon, I'm a makeup artist. And today, I am going to show you how to apply makeup to cover up redness in porcelain skin. The tools we are going to use today to conceal is a concealer palette, setting powder. You also need a primer. The brushes we are going to use is a concealer brush and a powder brush. Start by applying your water proofing primer. Squirt it directly right onto your brush. Lets apply our concealer. To cover redness just blend right over the area. Usually it's around the nose through the cheeks wherever you are experiencing it. Just apply it with the brush, go back with your finger. And really use that heat from your finger to melt it in. You really want it to be flawless and seamless and not look like you have cakey heavy makeup on. Make sure you get all the redness in the skin and even out your complexion. You can go ahead and set it with the powder puff. This really packs it on and keeps it from moving. You can do it for all the areas where you've just applied your concealer just to keep it on. And also it gives it a really smooth flawless finish. Kind of softens it all up. And that's how you apply makeup to cover up redness for porcelain skin.
