Sono, you have an amazing complexion. What your problem I feel is that you have a little bit of redness in your skin tone and your cheeks. Does that bother you when you're putting foundation or do you wear foundation?

Actually, I don't wear a foundation.

So, a great thing

powder foundation.

Uh huh.

Really simple application. As you see when I put it on, it sort of looks like you can see it, but then with the powder puff, just basically dubbing it--

Uh huh.

I guess you could say.

And it's really a quick application. What this is gonna do for you is even out the redness.

Uh huh.

Blend in the discoloration variables like see how your lights were on your forehead.

Uh huh.

And then blend in into [unknown]. And you really can use this with either a sponge applicator, a powder puff or even a brush. Now, close your eyes. Definitely a great tip, always powder your lid. Especially in the summer time, get rid of all that extra oil. That also helps adhere the eye shadow. You're getting full, even coverage.

Uh huh.

But it stuck in the greasing. You're not gonna sweat it. It's gonna knock oil.

Uh huh.

And on top of it, there's blending out your imperfections that you would love. And you have a lovely radiant and fresh natural look that you can go anywhere in.

Yeah. So Sono, I am gonna give you an eye look. Really same point is gonna be not only bright and color, but also it's just gonna warm and blend in to your overall skin complexion. How do you feel about bright colors on your eyes?

Well, I wear a lot of bright colors.

Uh huh.

But I don't wear a lot of bright make-ups. So--

Fantastic. Well, this is a great alternative to loving bright colors. Because actually, you can wear this. I'm giving you a nice, rich purple which is a really popular color. And you can actually wear purple with a black liner or whatever you wanted to do for evening and actually just for day and working, school. It's a great color that blends well with denim. And actually, if you put it on properly, you can create a really smoky, rich color on your eye that has a pop to it, but doesn't look too heavy like black which charcoal or blue.

Uh huh. That's great.

And I think with your complexion, rich, bright, vibrant colors just really gonna sing and pop. It's just gonna be really beautiful. I'm gonna marry this whole makeup look for you Sono. I'm going to put in some pinks and some browns and just warm up your cheek area with a little bit of, again, a bright pinky. But on you, this is just gonna come out as like a hue of pink and I'm also blending the brown on the contour and the hollows of the cheek. So, it's like a mix of two colors, but ultimately, it's still gonna look really fresh and natural and pretty. But, you're gonna see that the browns and the purples and the pinks will actually mix in really well. And with your lip look, keeping in the earth tone but at the same time sort of keeping it young, I'm gonna use a lip gloss. Open your lip for me. That's great and then just give me a little pout. Uh huh. Yup, that's it. And what we're gonna do here is put sort of an earth tone, which is an unusual thing because most girls think of lip gloss as light, shimmer and sort of sheer, translucent, effervescent. This is more of a flat color, but it doesn't come up heavy. And on you, it actually is gonna be sort of neutral and natural looking. It's just kind of a good way to marry a bright iridescent color. Do you know what I mean?

Uh huh.

I think sometimes bright colors on your eyes make people think, "Oh, she's wild and crazy." But when you tone it all down, you can actually make it totally wearable. I think this is a really beautiful, fresh makeup look on you.
