Hi, my name is Shannon. I'm a makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to do tropical fusion makeup for porcelain skin. Alright, so to create this look, I'm going to show you what tools we'll need. First, we want to start with a moisturizer, afterwards, put on a primer and a tint of foundation that has a lot of luminosity. Next we're going to conceal, here's your concealer brush. For a really bronzy glowy look, we're going to use a duo, a cream duo with a pop of cream blush on top. And for the eyes, we're going to do a cream eyeshadow, then you're going to need some really nice shimmery, bronzy eye shadows, which we're going to apply with these three brushes. We're also going to use a gel eyeliner, mascara, we're also going to use a bright orange lip. Start by applying your moisturizer all over the face. We're going to just dab it all around and blend, just like that. Next, let's apply our waterproofing primer. Squirt it directly on to the brush. Next let's apply our liquid foundation. Place it all around the face and start to blend, just like that. Let's apply our concealer. So start applying right underneath the eye, here, getting really close to your lash line and the inside of the eye here in the corner, and go over the eyelid as well, just to get any discoloration that's on the eyelid. You can also spot treat at this point. To cover redness, just blend right over the area. Usually it's around the nose, through the cheeks. You can go ahead and set it with a powder puff. So bronzer comes in a few ways, you're probably familiar with powders, also creams. Creams is what I recommend. We gotta use a synthetic brush when applying your cream bronzer. We're going to start with our bronzer on a brush and we're going to blend. Make sure you also do your jaw line, a little bit down the neck. You can do your hair line and just put it to your liking, depending on how much color you want to add, but again, by using creams, it's going to keep you looking glowy and dewy. So I'm blending it all the way down around my jaw line, my hair line, right there against my cheek bone. Okay? Now you want to highlight some areas. We're using the same palette. Pick up some product and put the highlighter right there on the top of the cheekbone so that when you turn in the lighting, it gives you a nice reflection, a nice glow. These have a lot of luminosity particles that just reflect the light and bounce it back so you look really dewy, really fresh and youthful. You also can take a little bit of that, if you want, apply it right over the eye lid. So for our eyes, we're going to start with a cream base and we're going to apply it from the lash line to the brow bone, using your finger for the warmth. Now we're ready for our eye shadows. We're going to take the largest brush we have and we're going to use it for our medium toned shadow. We're going to place this color on the eyelid. So see how it reflects the light already? It just bounces with the light off and gives you this really nice glowy reflection, like that. So all the way from the inside to the outside, we're going to cover that whole area. Actually, we can even put a little bit in the inner corner to pop that, corner, to get rid of any shadows that might be there, like that. Then we're going to take a smaller brush, well, this'll be your medium size brush and this one, we're going to place it right on the brow bone, just like that. Okay? Now we've got a crease brush and we're going to take the crease brush, pick up our darkest gold tone and we're going to start in the outer corner and we're going to work it inwards. We're also going to take some of that product and we're going to lay it down underneath the eye, right here, like that. We're going to do the same for the other side, start in the outer corner, tapping the product and blending in to the crease. And just link it to that first color in the corner there. Now we're ready for our eyeliner. I've chosen a gel eyeliner in brown and we're going to line our eyes right along the lash line and same for the other eye. Now let's apply our mascara. And now we're going to finish it off with a bright orange lip. And that's how you do tropical fusion makeup for porcelain skin.
