    Hi! 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 show you how to apply eye makeup. Before we begin, you need some good brushes for your eye shadows and also some basic colors like a nude color for the eyes. So, what I am going to do, is I am going to apply a nude color for your eyes and basically its like a powder for the eyes, so -- close your eyes, I chose a color thats very close to Reas (ph) skin. I am going to matt it down.

    The next thing I am going to do is -- remember, we are talking about the flawless and natural complexion right now, which means we would not be doing any heavy eye makeup. So, the next trick I am going to show you is a very simple trick, but it really will bring out the eyes. What you are going to need is a dark cream liner. It could be navy, charcoal, or black, or even purple and then you will need a brush like this. Remember, this brush is actually a concealer brush not an eyeliner brush, but this brush would do the trick that you want.

    So, what I am going to do is I am going to spray the brush with water a little bit and then what I am going to do is I am going to dab a little bit of the cream liner on to the brush and watch me closely and carefully. Now, Rea (ph), if you keep your eyes open and you look down for me and just relax it, that would be great. And what you are going to do -- this is very easy to do on yourself, but because I am demonstrating on Rea (ph) you can see exactly what I am doing. I am going to pull her eyes up and I am going to color under her eyelids where the lashes are growing so basically at the roots of the lashes and youre just going to go back and forth, back and forth, you are going to color the roots of the lashes. I am going to spray a little bit more water. Its easier if the cream is a little bit more on the liquidy side. relax and look down for me I am going to continue and you dont have to get on the line of the eyes, basically. just color back and forth on the roots, open. If you can look at Reas (ph) eyes, you can see major difference and you cant even tell how she applied the liner. I am going to continue with the other eye, and same thing. turn this way for me and I am going to color -- you are doing very well, this is very easy, I am being very gentle, and it doesnt hurt or anything because the brush is very soft. you are good loot at me Thats all that you need.

    And then the next thing I am going to do is probably just add a little bit of mascara and she is done. Let me just get this. If you keep your eyes open for me and look down. I am going to move you hair out of way a little bit, just going to lightly brush the mascara, open. If you look at Rea (ph) right now, she has a very, very natural looking eyes and its glowing, but you cant even tell how we applied the eyeliner on her. Look over here and I would not apply mascara or eyeliner at the bottom because you do not want to focus on the fine lines underneath.

    Thats how you apply the eye makeup and now we are going to start with the lips.
