About the Expert
Hi, I'm Christine Wheaton, and I'm a makeup artist. I'm going to show you some makeup tips for a natural look for olive skin. The things that you'll need are some bronzer, a powder brush, some blush, and cream eye shadow. Let's get started. The first step is going to be to apply the bronzer. You take your powder brush, and you dip it in the bronzer. Definitely wipe off any excess so you don't put too much on. Now, we're going to apply the bronzer to the face. We're going to do a little bit on the cheekbones, just lightly, just adding a little bit of sun. A little bit on the chin, on the nose, and then up on the forehead. Anywhere the sun would naturally hit. The next step is going to be to apply the blush. This is going to really liven up your face. You just take the brush into the blush. Wipe off any excess again. We're going to apply it to the apples of the cheeks so you do a little smile, and you apply it right here. Little brush strokes just to give yourself some color. The next is going to be to apply the cream shadow. I want to just use my finger, and I'm going to use this darker brown color on my lid just by dabbing it on and then smoothing. Creams are great 'cos they last a long time, and a lot of the companies now make them so that they don't crease. So we're just doing natural look so we're keeping it simple. The next step is to take this lighter color. So I'm going to apply this on the eyebrow bone right here on both sides, a little bit on the inner corners. And then I'm even going to use some on the cheekbone right here, and this'll really brighten up the face. And you're all set! That is how you complete a natural look for olive skin. My most favorite item is going to be these cream eye shadows. You can use these on the eyes, as you can see on the cheeks. You can have fun with it. You can use as a highlighter or as a bronzer, but definitely everything is important. The blush livens up the face. The bronzer gives you some sun and that gives you a great, natural look. Thank you for watching, I'm Christine. Bye!
