Hello, my name is Joi. I'm a freelance makeup artist in New York, and I want to show you all today the best highlighter for brown skin. So what I'm going to be using today is a bit of a goldish pigment and a fan brush. So in general when it comes to highlighting brown skin, you just want to make sure that the colors that you're using are warm enough so that they don't make you look ashy. So you could use colors in the bronze or gold family. For our model here, I'm going to actually go with a bit of gold. Also you could use a cream or a stick highlighter, but today we're actually going with a light powdered pigment. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take my fan brush and I'm using this so that we can just do a very light application just to highlight certain areas of her face. And I'm going to get a bit on my brush. Tap it. Then I'm just going to highlight the forehead down the nose, a bit on the chin, and on the cheekbones. And these colors are going to go well with her skin tone. They're not going to make her look ashy and they're going to give her just a bit of a glow. OK. All right. So we've got a bit of the gold pigment on the areas that we want highlighted. Again, if you are a little bit darker, you can use something that's a little bit more bronzy and it will give you the same effect. So go out and try this guys, have fun with it, and again, my name is Joi. Bye.
