Hi, my name is Shannon. I'm a makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to choose colors for cool skin tones. If you have a cool skin tone, some colors I would recommend would be soft colors like this, really neutral colors, soft pinks soft browns, a light purple, you know lilac colors like this. Also go ahead and try like some really pretty blues, indigo blues, sky blues, anything cool like Earth tones are going to work really really well on cool skin tones, even like soft grays you could do a smoky eye in a gray rather than in a harsh black. That's going to be really pretty or even a smoky eye in a blue or a purple and then don't forget about pinks. Pinks are great on porcelain skin on cool tones. So for your blush or your eye shadow, give a little pop even on the lips with a pink, that would be great, or even a nude. Cool skin tones can have a lot of fun with this palette. There's a lot of fun blues and purples in here that have a blue undertone to them. So it's a cool undertone. So as long as it has a cool undertone to it, it's going to sit really nice on your skin and go and blend really naturally. So you can do the purples, the blues, the blue greens, pinks are really nice as well. We've got a lot of neutral colors up here and you can even do a smoky eye with a cool skin tones. These blushes over here with the pinks and peaches are going to be really pretty. Also the gold is fine to wear as well. For the lips we have a lot of colors over here that I like, a lot of pinks that are going to pop on cool skin tones. You may not be able to wear these warmer tones here that are kind of a red brown but everything else, these bright orange and reds here and the pinks here, beautiful. So those were some tips on how to choose colors for cool skin tones. I hope they were helpful.
