    Professional make up artist Tu-Anh demonstrates how to apply wedding day makeup on Asian complexions including how to apply eye makeup.

    Tu-Anh Nguyen: Hi! I am Tu-Anh with Polished by Tu-Anh. I am showing you how to apply wedding day makeup on light to medium complexion and now I am going to show you how to apply eye colors. I am going to start with an all over eye color and I chose a nude color which I am going to set the base for the eyes and this is basically an eye powder and it will prevent creasing later on in the day. Look up and then you also want to do the bottom because sometimes if you have fine lines the makeup will crease as well and I am using an all over eye shadow brush for this. So let's do the other eye. If you see here, I am applying it on the whole eyelid because you want it to be very clean. Open. I am going to set the bottom as well and the next thing I am going to do is I am going to apply a color that will give a little definition to the eyes. So I chose a little bit of a gray, a neutral gray right here from the middle to the outside. And normally, what I do is I do the liner next step to the base, but you can do with after this color. It is fine too. Open for me. I am highlighting a little bit at the bottom. I will go into the other eye. Look down. What you want to try to avoid especially on the Asian complexion or Latino complexion -- Latino Complexion is that you don't want to use browns. You don't want to use brownish purples or reddish colors because it can make them look very tired. Open. So you want to use more cool colors and and not warm. And now I am going to apply eye liner and again, I normally use a cream liner or a shadow. I wet the brush and I am going to use a black cream liner and this is actually a concealer brush, but I am using this for the liner brush. I am going to color the roots of her lashes to make the eyes pop out and make the lashes look fuller after we put mascara. The cream liner is moist already. You don't have to use water. I always like to get a drier eye liner and then spray water on it. Okay, let's do the other eye. And you see how easy this brush is. It is always easier to do with on yourself than having somebody else do it anyway too. Okay, look at me. And now we just set her eyes. The next step I am going to do is I am probably going to put a little bit on the top lid. And again, I am going to be very gentle and apply a very little and very subtle because you don't want it to stand out too much. I am going on top of the lid and very closely to the lash line, open, down, even this out a little bit. So now you can see that there is definitely a difference between the left and the right, but it is still very natural and subtle. So let me even out the other side. With Kathy I am probably going to touch up the liner at the bottom a little bit. Look up and the way that you do it, you use the brush as a liner, instead of using a pencil. And you just kind of dot it just a little bit. If you notice, her eyes are a little bit slanted. So you don't want it to be too slanted so that is why I am not applying the liner all the way up. And then the next thing I am going to do is apply mascara. Okay, look down. And now I am going to touch up a little bit at the bottom. What I am going to do is I am going to touch up the eyes just a little bit more I am going to add a little bit of gray to make it a little bit more intense, but again, you have to play by ear so it's always to apply a little and lightly and then build up. Look up. Thank you. Turn this way for me please. Thank you. I am going to add just a little bit of a highlight color. It is a little bronze color right here and it has a little bit of shimmer and what I am doing is I am actually highlighting it right underneath her brows and the last touch would be my favorite -- the white eyeliner. And it is going to take out the red away from the eyes and it will bring out the eyes. This is very common with models and celebrities and TV personalities. And that is how we apply eye colors.

    Next, I am going to show you how to apply lip colors.
