About the Expert
Hi, my name is Shannon. I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to apply pretty makeup for porcelain skin. Let me show you the materials you're going to be needing, moisturizer, primer, foundation along with your foundation brush, also we're going to need a concealer and a concealer brush. We're going to do a cream blush, a cream eye shadow, your eye shadow palette, a nice little highlighter pigment, a white eye pencil, two brushes, one bigger, one smaller, mascara, eye pencil and we're also going to need your lipstick. Start by applying your moisturizer all over the face. We're 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 let's apply our liquid foundation. Place it all around the face and start to blend, just like that. Let's apply our concealer. So start applying right underneath the eye here, getting really close to your lash line and the inner side 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 powderpuff. 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 on the peak of the bone. A lot of people put it 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. I'm also using a cream because the cream is going to help it to look really subtle and natural like it's your own skin shining through and not like a powder sitting on top of the skin. This is also very helpful if we tend to be on the dryer side. It's going to look more dewy and fresh. 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 let's apply our cream eye shadow base. You're 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. Next, we're going to apply a really light lavender shadow. We're going to start on the outside of the eye tapping it like that so that you don't get a lot of fallout. Then you're going to move it into the crease like that. This is a light neutral color so it's going to match most of anything you wear and it's not a heavy bright color to draw too much attention. It's going to keep it nice and soft. Okay, take your highlighting pigment and we're going to highlight the brow bone. So you just want to place it right underneath the brow bone there, blend it down like that and you can do the inner corner as well just to give you a little bit of a brightening effect, cancel out any darkness that may be there. Now, rim your eyes with a white pencil. I'm going to take it into my water line and this is really going to help to open and brighten up the eye and I'm going to do it a little bit on top as well. Take your mascara and I like to lift up on my eyelid so I can really get to the root of my eyelash. That way you're going to capture the entire length of your lash and not just get the tips. So lift it up and really focus on getting to the root and then you can go back and get the tips and that way you're really going to capture your length. You can also do the bottom, just to bring a little bit more definition around the eye. When applying your lipstick, feel free to start wherever you want. There's no rules, whatever feels comfortable is fine. Start with your lip liner and just trace around the natural lip line. I have chosen a nude liner just to keep it soft and natural. Liner will help your lipstick to stay on longer especially if you kind of skip it through your lips a little bit. It kind of gives it something to adhere to. Okay after doing that, you're ready for your lipstick. And that's how you apply pretty makeup for porcelain skin.
