    Hi! I am Tu-Anh with Polished by Tu-Anh Company. We are talking about achieving a natural and flawless complexion in just minutes.

    Now, I am going to demonstrate to you how to apply eye makeup on medium to dark skin tone.

    First step I am actually going to do with Janelle (ph) is to matt down her concealer. I chose the powder color that is very natural. I - close if you see here, it just comes on and it just mats down that area. Look up. It also sets the concealer in place as well. Can you close? Now, I do this to the other eye, lookup.

    Now, we are ready to begin and what you will need is a nice cream liner whether it is black, or navy, or dark purple, or charcoal. I chose black for Janelle (ph) and then what you are going to need also is a nice concealer brush. So, youre going to use this eye trick that I am teaching you. Youre going to use this brush to apply the eye makeup. Youll also need a water bottle to wet the brush and pick up the cream liner and this trick I am going to show you, you would never want to use eye liner pencils ever again because this will look very, very, natural and nobody can tell how you applied it on.

    So, I want you to keep your eyes open for me and look down and just relax and all I am doing is I am coloring the roots of your lashes because we can see how they separate and I am just filling them in and making them look thicker. Being very gentle, and this is the best brush to use. So, if you want to do this trick, youve got to buy the eye concealer brush, not the eye liner brush because it is not going to do the trick for you.

    Look at me, it is beautiful. Now, I am going to do the other eyes, turn this way. Same thing just color in the roots of your lashes. This is very easy to do on yourself. You might feel like it is difficult, but all you do is you look in the mirror and pull your eyes up and then you just color in the roots of the lashes and thats it. So, it is very easy; you can do this with your eyes open.

    Now, what I am going to do is I am going to apply a little bit of mascara on you. What I want you to do is to keep your eyes open, look down, look at me, it is beautiful. Look this side, turn this way. Now, remember we are trying to achieve a flawless and natural complexion. So, as you can see, I am not doing too much to her eyes. Open, that looks beautiful and that is how you apply eye makeup.

    The next step would be lips.
