Hi, my name is Yessica Andrea, and I'm a professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to give you tips on how to use purple eye shadow for caramel skin. The first thing you want to do is you want to start off with a clean face and go ahead and get your favorite primer and go ahead and put that primer all over your eyelid. This is actually going to make the eye shadow stick really good so it does not move and the color shows up nice and bright. Once you have that in there, I'm going to be using two colors. I'm going to use a light peach color. This would be my first base color and it's what I'm going to use on the inner part of my eye to give it a nice little highlight. Now, you don't always have to use a second color, but I find that when you put this on your eye it just makes your eye just pop real good. I'm going to follow that by putting it on my brow bone and once you have your base color in, you then go ahead and choose a purple shade, any purple shade of your choice and I'm using a very fun, looks like a lavender but it's just a little bit darker than a lavender and it just has a sheer of glitter in it. So, I'm going to be applying it underneath the crease, not passing the crease. You don't want to make it too too dramatic and you can use this as a day fun look as well as a night one and get right in between the crease, not too high on the brow bone and blending that really good. Hope you guys can see right there. Once you're done blending, you then want to go ahead and get a nice purple eyeliner and just go ahead and apply some purple eye pencil underneath your eye to complete your look. I like to do the water line and if you want to get a little bit more dramatic with it you can do a little bit right underneath your lash line or in between your lashes just to have that lack draw down a little bit more, a little bit more intense. It looks really nice. And here you have it, tips of using purple eye shadow for caramel skin. I'm Yessica Andrea, and thank you for watching.
