Hi, my name is Jamie Hoover with FaceItJamie.com, and I'm going to show you how to apply makeup for cool skin tones. The tools you will need for this look are, two eye shadows. You're going to need a soft pink eyeshadow, to take all over the lid, a cool brown eyeshadow. You're going to need a pink blush, and a soft pink lipstick. You're also going to need a navy blue eyeliner pencil, and three brushes. You're going to need a blush brush, a blending eyeshadow brush and an all-over eyeshadow brush. And we'll start with the first tool, with the all-over eyeshadow and the all-over eyeshadow brush. We're going to use that soft pink and we're going to take that all over the lid. It's a really pretty cool color and it's going to, if you have blue eyes or green eyes, it's going to make them pop. And it'll be nice against a cool, fair skin. And the next tool that we're going to use, is a brown, like a cool taupey eyeshadow, with a little bit of a metallic to it. And we're just going to create a little bit of depth that. We're going to take the crease brush, we're doing a really soft look for cool skin tones. And just blend it on the corner a little bit and then, bring it inward. You can see it creates a little bit of contour and depth for the eye. And the next we're going to use, is a navy blue eyeliner. And then, I'm going to go ahead and take that right across the lash line. And the navy's really gorgeous on cool skin tones, just because it's a cool color. And the next tool is going to be a light pink blush. And I'm going to apply that with a blush brush. And I'm just going to smile and dab it on the apples of the cheeks. And it just brightens up the whole complexion for a cool look. And the next tool is, a creamy lip stick in kind of a bronzed pink color. I'm just going to apply that right across the lips, and this finishes the lip for you. My name is Jamie Hoover with FaceItJamie.com, and that was how to apply makeup for cool skin tones. And what we used was an all-over eyeshadow in a cool pink tone. We used a taupe, a cool taupey eyeshadow as well, for the contouring. And we used a pale pink blush and a pink lipstick, with a blush brush and two eyeshadow brushes and a lip brush.
