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

    Now, I am going to show you how to apply foundation on medium to dark skin tone.

    So, what I have chosen is a powder and foundation compact for Janelle (ph) because she has normal to oily skin.

    What I am going to start is by just lightly applying a little bit on the T-zone. She has very beautiful and smooth skin, so we really dont need a lot, just wanted to even it out a little bit. Janelle (ph) has a warm undertone. So, you want to choose a foundation color that has some yellow in it and not too much red. You only want to apply were it is necessary. So, as you can see I am not applying over here or underneath her throat or anything like that. Were only just retouching and evening out the skin tone.

    That is how you apply foundation. The next step will be powder.
