Hi, my name is Yessica Andrea, and I'm a professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you what color eye shadow to wear for dark circles for caramel skin. The first thing you want to do is you want to get a nice foundation brush, and you're going to prime your eyes, especially around your circles. I'm going to prime my whole entire eyelid as well as underneath my eyes. I'm going to use my fingers and use a very nice spreading motion all underneath and on top and just kind of put it on there like if you were applying some lotion or some moisturizer on your skin. Once you have that you want to make sure that you've covered mostly your circles. If you haven't, just go ahead and reapply a little bit more coverage and follow with some powder. I have a very nice soft translucent powder that I'm going to start putting underneath my circles first and a little bit over your eyelids as well. The next step you want to do is you want to get a nice eye shadow brush. I'm using a crease brush, a real good blending one, and I'm going to apply a bit of eye shadow and apply it on the inner part of your eye moving towards the middle, the center of your eye and you can do a little bit on your brow bone as well. Once you've did that you're going to go ahead and you're going to go into your second color. I'm going to do a natural look so I'm just getting a peach color. I don't know if you guys can see it that well but if you can't just go ahead and pick another color that might work really best for you, not too dark because we're doing a natural look and once you have that nice and blended, you're going to go into your third color and I'm using a brown color, kind of like a Earth tone and I'm going to do that on the crease of my eyes. Now you want to do it a little bit intense because you want to draw the attention up towards your eye and not so much underneath the circles so the attention is pulled up instead of downwards. Then I like to get real good in between the crease, that way you have that pop where you can see where the brow bone and the eyelid separate. Go ahead and do the second eye, nice warm Earth tone for caramel skin. In this look you can kind of create it as a date look. If you add more darker brown it could be a night look as well, it just depends no how intense you want to get and once you've done that, you want to go ahead and grab your favorite mascara and finish your eye off with some nice black dark mascara. And there you have it, eye shadows for dark circles for caramel skin. I'm Yessica Andrea, and thank you for watching.
