Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, makeup artist in New York, and I want to answer the question for you all today what kind of eyeshadow goes well with brown skin and black hair. So of course I've got my shadow brush and a little bit of shadow. And colors that look really well with brown skin and dark hair are rich colors, also some of the deeper metallics such as gold or bronze. So what I'm going to do right now is I'm going to try a nice shimmery bronze color on, and that's going to play very well against her skin and dark hair. OK. All right. And so I'm going to go ahead and apply this patting it on because it is a pigment and we don't want it falling everywhere. And as you can see the color is showing up very nicely. And it is accentuating her skin tone. OK. Just going to add a bit more here. And as I said, also golds, deeper bronzes and browns look well, look nice on the skin as well. But just kind of play with it and see which one works best for you. OK. So blending this out to the edge, and up to the crease line there. OK. And she's got a nice shimmery look to complement her skin tone and her dark hair. So I hope this is helpful to everyone. Thank you guys for watching. My name's Joi, bye.
