Hi, I'm Kelly Machbitz, certified image consultant and beauty expert, and today I am going to show you how to darken your skin tone. In most instances I would say not to darken your skin tone to go with your natural coloring, 'cause your makeup is going to blend in much more easily. But a lot of women in, especially in the winter months, want a little bit of darker skin tones. So, what I recommend for a very natural look is to get a liquid foundation just one shade darker than your natural skin tone. And you are going to apply it only to the center of your face using a sponge to blend it out. And because we are keeping the color to the center of the face and not blending it to the outer edges you are going to get a little bit of the darker skin tone without having to blend all the way down onto the chest and neck to make it look natural. So, you could do a little bit darker here and we've could have gone even a little bit darker skin tone on you. But making sure just to blend it in to the rest of your makeup. The second tip I would give you is to use a bronzing powder and I like to use a real natural kind of golden bronzing powder and you are going to apply that again to the similar areas we just did the liquid foundation. You are going to apply it to the middle of the face, the nose, forehead and chin, giving a little bit more color there. And then to the cheekbones. This is where you would naturally get a little more sun and a little more color in the summer months. So, we are giving her that nice bronzy look. And that's how you give yourself a darker skin tone with makeup. I'm Kelly Machbitz, certified image consultant and beauty expert.
