Hi, my name is Nancy Paterra, and I'm a makeup artist from Los Angeles. And we are going to discuss selecting pink makeup colors for darker skin tones. The elements I'm going to work with are pink eye shadow. Nice vibrant pink cheek color. And a fabulous pink lip gloss. When choosing a pink eye shadow a lot of the time I don't think it should be a super vibrant pink on the eye. It can have the tendency to make the eye look tired. So there's a lot of beautiful pinks out there that have a little bit of a gold undertone to them. And that's what I've selected today. Just going to take a little brush and put it right on the lid. And you'll see the pink but you'll also see the warmth of the gold come through. So you have a suggestion of pink but a beautiful highlight of gold in there as well. Which makes wearing pink very wearable. Lets do the other eye. You can see the pink coming through but also that gorgeous gold which really looks beautiful on a warmer skin tone. Okay. Beautiful. Now using a super soft brush you always want to use a soft brush when you are working with vibrant colors so you can build color. Smile. Placing it right on the cheekbone so you get a nice subtle pinkie glow there. And it's amazing when you look at this color in the palette and then actually see it on the skin it's very wearable. But when you first look at this it can be a little frightening. So so far we have the pinkie gold on the eye. Nice flush of pink on the cheeks. Now lets put a nice vibrant pink on the mouth. You don't need to use a lip pencil. Just put a little on a brush and go right on the mouth. And there we have it. So lets recap what we've just done here. We've used a pinkie gold eye shadow on the lid. Nice bright pink to liven up the cheeks. And then our concentration of color is on the lips with a nice vibrant pink lip gloss. Very, very pretty. Thank you.
