Hi, my name is Shannon, I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to tell you what colors of makeup you should wear in the spring for porcelain skin. So, let me show you the products you're going to need to achieve this look. We're going to use a cream base, a pink eyeshadow, pink pigment, white pigment, black eyeliner, black mascara, lip liner and lipstick. We're going to apply the eyeshadow with these two brushes. O.k., so the first step in this look, is a cream eyeshadow base. Directly apply the cream eyeshadow along the lid with your finger, from lash line to eyebrow. The warmth of your finger will blend it in really smoothly and evenly. First color we're going to use, is a lavender pink color. Place it on the outer side, outer corner of the lid, going up into the crease. We're just trying to create some depth. O.k., now, we're going to add a pink pigment. Using a smaller brush, we're going to dip into our pigment, we're going to press it on the eye. Going right on top of the lavender color. You can bring this up as high as you want, you can keep it underneath the crease, or take it and extend it above the crease. And just match it on the other side. Pink can be a really fun color on porcelain skin. Usually there's a lot of pink undertones on porcelain skin, already. So, you can match it with a brighter pink and balance it. And now, I just want to highlight my brow bone. We're going to dip into the powder here, pick up some color, and apply it directly under the brow. Bring it down to touch the pink, and do the same thing on the other side. And now, I've really popped that brow and the eyes. Take a black liner, and I just want to focus on the outer edge, with this liner, with this look. You can extend it however far you want, and just rim the inside a little bit, too. And again, we're just going to match it on this side. When you're finished with your eyeliner, go ahead and apply your mascara, and bottom lashes too. Let's finish the look with a nice pink lip. So, that's how you do makeup for the spring for porcelain skin.
