I'm Sherilynn Marilyn of Diva Day International Glam Squad, and we're working with Brinny today at Kiss Club Hair Salon. And we're going to show you how to apply makeup to Asian skin. I'm going to start first with moisturizing her face. She came in with a very clean face and normally, with models, we want to always come in with a clean palette. It makes the job easier for the artist. So, as you can see I'm applying with a sponge. If you're doing it by yourself, you can use your fingers or you can use an applicator brush. We always want to secure every part of the face. Under, underneath the eyes is the most delicate of the skin area. You don't want to necessarily apply too much pressure, but we want to get it all over the skin. We're going to start with a finishing spray to set her skin. "Close your eyes and lock your lips in for me." I'm using a Mac Fix and what this does is it sets the skin to be ready for our makeup application. It also adds a little bit of a, a barrier between the moisturizer and the skin. So, moving forward with her, the right color closest to her real skin tone; as always, do a test on her cheeks towards the jawline to make sure we're not applying a color that's not true to skin. Now, what I do is I use a patting motion with the sponge and I start at the base and I move upward. We always have very Asians in our under skin tones and this helps to mattify, as you can see on from on side to the next, it helps to mattify and also get rid of those streak lines that we always, you know, when we're brushing down using sponges or our fingers or even with our, with our brushes. She has pretty good skin, so we don't have to use a whole lot. But, I like to be sanitary and put enough, more or less, than dipping back into your product. You don't necessarily like doing that because of, we don't want to mix the oils and we don't want to contaminate the jar. I like being sanitary. What we want to do now is we want to lock in her, her initial color from the foundation to mattifying the skin. Right now, you see she has a very healthy glow, a nice dewy finish and we want to mattify that; meaning we're going to add some loose powder. And as you can already tell, the skin becomes very porcelain, very smooth, very soft. As you apply a little bit at a time, you don't want to put too much on your, on your, on your brush, just enough to get it on there and if you always need more, you can always apply more. A little goes a long way, but if you need a little bit more at a time, you can always go back into your, your powder, apply a little bit more to your brush, tap off the excess and begin sweeping it along your face. Now, what I would like to do is any excess that you have underneath your eyes or on top of your lids, you want to take your super dome brush and you just want to sweep it under. What it does is it takes off any excess that may have been applied, missed, and it gives you a very smooth finish. I'm Sherilynn Marily with Diva Day International Glam Squad and I'm at Kiss Club Hair and Beauty Salon with Brinny, our model of the day showing you exactly how to apply makeup to Asian skin tones.
