Hi, I'm Christine. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to do glowy makeup for olive skin. This is something that's super easy to do and the things that you'll need are a moisturizer that has a little bit of a pearl essence to it, an illuminator and some foundation of your choice. I like to use a stippling brush for my foundation as well as a pink eye shadow that has a pearl shimmer to it and a little fluffy brush to apply it with. Let's get started. So, the first step is going to be to apply the moisturizer and the foundation. What I like to do is I just take a little dish, any dish will do and I'll put one pump of my illuminating moisturizer in there and I'll put one pump of my foundation in there and then that way you can mix the two together to create that glowy foundation. So, I just take that stippling brush and kind of mush them together. You can create something really sheer or something not depending on how much moisturizer you put in there and then once you get the consistency that you want you can go ahead and apply it to the face. So, I just use this little brush, the stippling brush and I'll apply it all around and then I'll blend it in with circular motions and I love this brush because of these tiny little almost porcupine bristles. It gets into all the nooks and crannies and really gives you an airbrushed look. You want to get under the nose, definitely on the sides of the nose, even up to where the eye is with those little round motions and this is also great if your skin is a little bit on the dry side because you've mixed your foundation with a good moisturizer and if you're oily then just apply a nice powder afterwards to take away any shine. So, the next step to get glowing skin is to take that pink pearly eye shadow and the fluffy brush and you're just going to get some on there and we're going to use this to highlight on the cheekbones, the eyebrow bones, a little bit on the nose and it creates kind of an illuminating look. So, you just take the fluffy brush and you lightly dust on your cheekbone up here, over here. This would also work with a kind of a champagne type of shimmery eye shadow or even you know, a light gold, anything that has a pearly essence to it, it is lighter tone. You can put some on the lids and there you go, it's just that easy. That is how you can create base that's very glowy. Glowy makeup for olive skin and then from here you can continue with your regular makeup, but you have that underlying luminescence that really shows through. So the must have product in my opinion is going to be that moisturizer that has the pearl essence to it that you can go ahead and mix with your foundation. It really makes a difference and gives you an awake look. Thank you for watching. I'm Christine. Bye.
