Hi, I'm Kendra Richards, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to do makeup for tan skin. So because Anna has tan skin I have warmed up her complexion with a little bit of a bronzer and then I've added a little blush in a tangerine color that brightens up her face and then on her eyes I've given her a really defined eyeliner with lots of mascara and I've finished her eyes off with a beautiful bronzing eye shadow combination color and to complete this look I'm going to finish her off with a coral lipstick that is neither too orange nor too pink and it's just really a perfect coral that is timeless and classic. To achieve this look, I'm going to use Rouge in Love in Coral in Love by Lancome. This is a timeless coral that looks great on anybody with tan skin. It adds that brightness that is just perfect. Now this lipstick has just enough gloss but it's still long wearing, a little bit more like a matte, there is also crushed mother of pearl in it that gives a little bit of a shimmer that adds the depth and it's so important when you're choosing a coral to not choose a color that's too orange. That is why I love this color and that little bit of shimmer in it too is just so special and it's just perfect. This color is ideal for Spring and Summer. It's not too bold but adds a real freshness to the face and you can tap it on if you prefer it to look more like a stain than a lipstick. I've completed Anna's look. She's got a beautiful warm glow that complements her skin tone perfect. And there you go, that's how to apply makeup for tan skin. I'm Kendra Richards. Thanks for watching.
