    From the point of view of someone who does visual arts (painting, drawing, etc.) this is such a blessing to see and hear someone who actually knows what theyโ€™re talking about, especially with darker skin tones that are so often overlooked. Youโ€™re a true professional and definitely deserve props for this well put together video.

    I decided to re-visit this video because I do plan on trying to make my skin tone lol, but one question, since I am warmer, would I add more yellow instead of red? wanted to ask first before trying on my own lol!

    I'm just trying to figure out why you don't have more subs. Every one looking to become a freelance makeup artist should follow her channel. This is the stuff we need to learn..this and hygeine are so important.
