    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 show you how to apply powder on medium to dark skin tone.

    Normally, what I would do is take the powder and apply it all over and then I would apply blush, but because with Janelles (ph) skin tone it is a little bit on a different color and tone, I am using the powder first to apply it lightly all over. As you can see I am using loose powder because it is a lot better for your pores and it does not clog the pores. It also comes on very natural and you also need to invest in a good powder brush and now, what I am doing is I am actually reapplying the powder a little bit stronger on the cheeks creating some color because the powder that I chose is a little bit darker than her skin tone because I want to use it as a blush. So, if we look here, now she has a soft glow on her face.

    Thats how you apply powder on median to dark skin tone. The next thing would be eyes.
