Welcome to The Makeup Train’s first tutorial. This particular tutorial is aimed at people with dark skin, but it can be modified to suit your skin if you have a different complexion. I hope it helps anyone seeking a fun look for the holidays. Please comment and let me know what you think of it, if you tried it on yourself, and what kinds of tutorials you would like to see me do.

I prepped Cece’s face with a face primer(I used DHC Velvet Skin Coat). I then mixed Ni’xie Cream Foundations in Tantone 12 & Beige 6 with facial moisturizer to create her shade. I set it with Ben Nye Neutral Setting Powder.
Curl the eyelashes and apply black mascara. Tap a light true gold e/s (Urban Decay Half Baked) onto the brow bone to highlight. Sweep away any e/s fallout under the eyes using the setting powder. Finish the look by applying a deep bronze shade (NARS Casino) on the apples of the cheeks, then dust along the cheekbones. Apply a shimmery dark brown lipstick (Revlon Iced Mocha) with a lip brush, then top with a glimmery golden brown lip gloss (NYX Hot Fudge).
