Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to find a yellow base for your red skin. So what we are going to need today is just our concealer. And so when we have redness on our face we usually look to concealers or foundations to eliminate that redness. And a lot of times yellows are going to help cover that up because it's going to warm the skin tone. So the best way to really find the best yellow to cover red is just to experiment. We are going to go in we have two, three different shades right here. And we are just going to test it out. The first one here is quite light. So we are going to whisk this away. And opt for the middle one. It's clear that the reddish yellow down here is going to be too much for her skin tone. So this intermediate one right here should be perfect. And it is. So as we can see that sometimes just experimenting and sampling it on our skin is the best way to figure it out. And sometimes the products in the container don't read the same color as they do on the skin. So it's very important to just sample it. So once we find our yellow base we are just going to tap it onto the skin. Especially the areas that we see red. Because that is what we are trying to eliminate. The areas that are most commonly red are probably in the crevice of the nose right here. Just any blemishes along the way. Sometimes around the mouth because we get hormonal. and we have some veins on the cheeks at times. And also another area that gets red is just on the eyelids because we have some purple and red veins coming through. So it's always good to just dust those with our yellow base concealer or foundation. You don't have to use both yellow base foundation and concealer. You can pick one it just depends on how much coverage you would like. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to find a yellow base for your red skin.
