So I'll be talking about prima's, how to choose primates for your different skin types. And then we're gonna move on to foundations. I'm going to talk about how to choose foundations of your dry skin visits, oily skin and some tips on how to shape match as well, some tools required to apply a foundation like brushes and sponges. Then we're gonna move on to conceal A. I'll talk a little bit about the differences between pimples and under eyes and how you can consume those. And then after that, we're gonna talk quickly about setting your makeup of powder bronzer, contra blush as well as highlighter. Um, now this counts doesn't actually really talk about skin care about skin. Hair is extremely important. Now you need to make sure that you know you prepare your skin well enough for makeup application. Um, especially if you have dry skin. You must make sure your skin's well hydrated does prevents dry patches on the skin and ensures that you know your skin looks plump and radiant when you apply your foundation. Now, if you have oily skin, you still must moisturize. If not, your skin may think that you're dehydrated and actually produce small Seebohm throughout the day, which kind of you know contracts there, look that you're going for. So always moisturize spends before using primary, um, and the end of the class or towards the end, I will also be showing some demonstrations. So I'll be showing demonstrations and how I apply foundation. I do have oily skin, so I'm going to show you how I do that. Then I'm going to talk about Consul, is how I cover up my pimples buses, my under eyes And then I'm gonna move on to bronze a quanta blush and highlighter, and I'm going to show you on two sides off my face using cream and powder. And then lastly, we're going to set, I'll make up. So let's jump straight into the classes and I hope you enjoy 2. How to choose primers : So let's talk a little bit about Prime Minister Day. So as you can see here, I have a wide variety right now. So, um, primers are ultimately meant to help prolong your makeup. And some of them have specific purposes such as to reduce the appearance, a pause and to prevent sieben from interacting with your foundation. So the prime is that you choose should be very dependent on your skin type to help you achieve certain effects. So I personally have oily skin. So actually, majority of my promise you actually awful oily skin. So let's talk a little bit about that first. So that's just remove this. So if you take a look at these four so these four permits are actually best used for oily skin, and the reason is because they are, they helped reduce CBM production. Oh, they kind of control this even production of your face to prevent Sieben from interacting with your foundation, and they also help to fill in the pause. So, actually, if you take a look, for example, at this one because I have oily skin, my prime is generally catering to pull feeling so that you can see in general here. Like, for example, you see, this is the Loreal blow cream, and it says micro blood technology right here. So basically, it's to help fill in a pause and reduce the appearance. The other one is like, for example, to make up for a smoothing primer, the same thing it's moves to skin by filling into posed on your face. This one, I haven't opened it yet, but this is actually my third bottle already said This is the elf mineral infused face primary and I also haven't opened this one. This is, you know, cib, um blood primer from Innisfree. So I opened. I didn't open it yet, but I bought two because I tried to test in the store and it felt really, really good. So the most prominent one, I think the most famous one is to pull fashion all by benefit by recently threw mine away because it's really too old. But ultimately many other products out there kind of do the same thing. So our demonstrative on an orange later seeking kind of seedy effects. So if you do have oily skin, I really do recommend Paul Filling. Prime is the reason is because usually when you have oily skin, I didn't realize that opposing your fees tend to be a little bit more noticeable. I'm not sure if that's due to semen production, so definitely something like that will definitely help. You can also look for those that clearly say, like, for example, no CIB um, so it's kind of like to help reduce the interaction of CBM with your foundation, because actually, think about it this way. Your foundation tends to slip off the skin, and usually that's because the Seebohm is interacting with the foundation and in causing it to give a lot to be a lot more slippery. And then it just right off when you sweat or when you move about and move your face. So usually these phone this primers work really well for oily skin, in my opinion, then we also have prime is for dry skins. So let me take these away. I don't have a lot of promise for dry skin because I don't have it. But these are some examples I also used to have to Becca the other backup raiment, but I don't know what that one, but that's like the It's like a backlight climbing filter as well, so I don't know what that one, but this is another one. Does this Rebecca First light creaming filter and then this one is the Ilham Esca Hydra veil. I don't know if you can see this is a really small tub. It's a sample. But presently, when I used to freelance and do makeup for clients to hype, the hydra veal is really one of my favorite prime is when it comes to dry skin, it really moisturizes to face and also Smoothes the face out the problem with dry skin. It's not really the polls that are showing but more off the flakes of the skin. So usually you, for you probably would struggle with buffing the foundation in because the dry skin tends to flake off. So having a very moisturizing primer will help. The back of prime is up dominantly kind of like toe illumination to the skin. So if you have dry skin, there is not a lot of CIB, um, you know, on the skin surface, which can result in the foundation looking a little bit, um, flat. So usually prime is like that, uh, Becca does really good ones. These really helped to kind of eliminate the skin from within. So when you apply the foundation on top of it, your skin doesn't look very flat or dry, and it looks actually glowy and radiant. So these are the pep asses off these two prime mints, and I do recommend them for dry skin. And lastly, we also have color correction prima's. So these are some examples. These are not exactly prima's, but I just kind of want to show them to you, so you have a better idea of what they are. So, as you can see, these actually color correcting conceal its, but they can kind of look, it's prima's this fall. So let me just explain. So if you take a look at the color wheel, okay, usually if you have very reddish skin or you tend of Rose Asia or things like that, usually we can use a green kind of like green prime, a green color corrector to kind of even out the retinas because green is opposite red in the color wheel. So now that we talked about these kinds of prima's, I kind of want to demonstrate a pull filling prime A for you when it comes to me. Personally, I do have acne scars and I also a kind of half scars that kind of, um, go into the skin. So if I'm going to show you, for example, that's orange. Sometimes you can have pause that look a little bit like that. All acne scars that kind of go into the skin. So I kind of hope you can see the texture of the orange here. What I'm going to show you is I'm going to add a bit of the fulfilling primary on one side , and then we're gonna apply foundation. And I hope you can kind of see the difference as to what a poll filling prime A can do. So I think I just used to make up for everyone now, to be honest, for Paul, filling Prima's little really goes a long way. You really don't want it too much of it because of not your skin. It's gonna be too slippery, and your foundation is just not gonna hold it. Also, I think this is a good amount. Usually this is what I'll do, and I won't apply the whole on the primer to my whole face. Actually, I apply to wear. My poles are the largest, so usually around the nose and certain cheek areas. So I'm going to take my orange on. I'm kind of gonna put it, you know, one that's put it on the left side. Now, a good thing about Paul primates instead of swiping what you can do is you press it into the skin. Now, this is, of course, not really skin. But, you know, I just kind of one to show you, because when you press the powder sort, when you press the primary into the skin, you're kind of like pushing the product into the pause. So it becomes it helps fill in the pause a lot better, and you kind of get a more even texture. So, um, only once you're done patching it in and you said it's fine. Yes, you can swipe it to just make sure you notice no clumping on things like that. There we go. So I don't know if you can see just alone with the prime A. Um, there's a difference. I can definitely tell. Like this side is a little bit more match right now as competitive this sign as you can see it as a sheen here here doesn't, and, um, you can feel it right now, but this area feels a lot smooth. The this is this area. So now I'm going to grow up. I'm going to grab some foundation and I'm going apply it over. I say you can kind of see the difference. I just going to use this foundation that I have. This is the Maybelline Met and Pulis. So I'm just gonna plight on the orange so you can kind of see the difference. Okay, Now, it's gonna take a little bit part here, so I have a little bit of foundation on my hand right now. So, as you can see, this is the orange of the primacy decide has to prime at it feels really smooth. And then this is the site without you didn't see machine and who doesn't have it, So I'm gonna apply it, um, in a swiping motion on the side without the prime a fist never go. Um, and then I'm going to apply the same pretty much the same amount on the side with the prime . A. Okay, so as you can kind of see, um, if I especially tilted to the light like that so you can really see the site the foundation kind of collected into the little hole. So, like your paws, whereas decide it doesn't really go into these these holes, I hope you can see that. So that's kind of what Paul feeling primates do. They kind of produced kind of might provide this layer so that the foundation doesn't really go in. And it kind of, like, even sit out a lot more. So what I find is usually when you have a foundation that goes into your whole the pores like that, what happens is sometimes the foundation tends to slip off, and then you're going to realize that you still have these little like Nagy foundation dots on your face. And that's because the foundations in the polls itself, so usually pull up filling. Prime is such as, um, the makeup forever. Sorry. Give me a moment really helps to prevent that situation from happening. So I'm just gonna show you the orange one more time. This is the site without prime a. You can kind of see it going into the pores. All right, like all these little holes, you can see the foundation collecting inside the holes. This is the side with the primer. It's more even, I would say, and you would probably realise that is kind of like less collection of foundation in the holes compared to decide so usually silicon based prima's. They really help to even out the skin a lot better, and it kind of results in a more even kind of, like even application of your foundation. Okay, so I hope that's demonstration helps and let's move on to the next class. 3. How to choose foundations & tips: So how do we choose foundation? In general, there are three things that I think you should consider. The very fisting, when it comes to foundation would be the shade of the foundation. You must try to match it to your neck. Many people usually tested on your jawline, But I realize if you test it on your jawline, um, it may not be the same color as your neck, and then you're gonna have that foundation line underneath your neck, which it's not something that you want. Eso Usually what I do is I recommend, instead of testing on your hand on your jawline kind of test, it may be on the neck area to make sure that you know it matches your neck because you want a seamless effect with your foundation. The second thing I think you need to consider would be the coverage of the foundation. Do you want it to be light, medium or full coverage? The next thing will be the finish of the foundation. Do you like it should be sat And do you like it to be Matt? And then, lastly, it's the type of foundation we have. Powder foundations, creams, stick foundations and still won. So you got to find something that you're comfortable with. So that's first of all, talk about the shades off foundation. So as you can see, I just bring my foundation's out again. I have quite a few, but, um, generally from me, I'm quite warm tones, so you can probably see that all my foundations are pretty much on the warm aside. So how do you tell of your warm? Many people say you can look at your veins like, for example, if your beans a greenish visit their published, you know and things like that. But personally, I think the best way for you to tell with a you're cool or warm. It's the kind of Seve Gold or silver drove jewelry looks better on you. So for me, I am Asian and I'm quite olive toned. So usually I wear gold jewellery instant off Silva, and it's just something I feel better with. Whereas if you are very fair and you tend to the better of silver jewelry and silver tones , maybe you're cool tones, so you can definitely go to like sudden makeup starts to get, you know, tested all the lady can help you then. But as you can kind of see, these foundations are pretty much warm tone. So what exactly is warm? Um, if you take a look at my Loreal foundation here, Okay, so if you can see my Laura foundation shape, you can kind of see that it's a little bit more of the warm Scient meaning as a bit more reddish tones to it best is something that has more blue tones. So maybe if I can't watch it for you. Sorry, my foundations, that all kind of, you know, not the best state, but I'm def, a personal use here, so that's fine. So take a look here. So as you can see this foundation, you realize it has a more of a yellowish tone to it right vested, something that's a lot cooler, um, and a lot more kind of like bluish and tone. So I tend to go for warmer tone foundations because of my skin tone. But personally, I feel that usually warm atones do compliments skin a lot better. And the reason is because, you know, in general it looks a little bit more healthy, in my opinion, having something that's not too yellowish cause, but you know, a little bit warm kind of gives you a better that you're gives it illusion that you're most sun kissed. So I definitely usually would go for something that's more warm or neutral. I'd never really go for anything. That's cool tone, even if it even if my client is cool toned, so I hope that makes sense. So that's definitely for shades. Remember, don't test it on your hand because you all shake the shade of your head is totally different from the shade of your face and your neck. So the General Garden line is. You should always test your foundation along your jawline down towards your neck so you want to match the color of your face to the color of your neck so it gives a very seamless effect when you apply your foundation. If not, your face is going to look one color and you're next going to look like another color. And that's gonna be a little bit strange and not very natural. A little quick tip when it comes to choosing foundation sheets. So after you've applied it onto your draw line and down your neck, and you realize it's a good match. What you're going to do is put a little bit on your hand, swatch it out and then walk around a stroll, walk outside weird for a few, maybe like 10 minutes. And then I want you to take a look at the shade again. The reason is because some foundation shades oxidize oxidizing means it kind of interacts with the air and a CBM on the skin, and it can become darker. So as you can see just now, I kind of switched this on my hand and I don't know if you can see right now. It became Dhaka from when I first applied it. So it did oxidize. You can kind of see this area here, right? So keep that in mind because sometimes it's perfect when you feel supply. And no, when you go about, you use that you're like, Why is it so dark? It's because of oxidation. So try this out before you put cheese your perfect foundation shade. I hope that helps. The next thing you need to think about when it comes to foundation would be to finish that you want. So, for example, if you can take a look at this Met and Pullets foundation from Maybelline. You can already see that It says here met and Pulis. So this foundation is quite Matt, meaning that it doesn't have a lot of sheen to it when you apply it and that. Except whereas if you take a look at, um I would say this one is definitely set and finished. If you take a look at the makeup for everyone, this one is a ultra HD perfecter. This one is a really light coverage foundation. But what it does, it kind of evens out the skin tone really nicely and add a little bit of sheen to your skin , so making it look about more natural and a lot more radiant. And then, of course, you also have, like, the double where this is. I would say this is actually a match foundation because every time I apply it, um, I feel that it doesn't really set to any kind of set and finish. So it's something that you also need to consider. Now, if you do have oily skin, met foundations can work really well for you because over time, the semen production of your face will kind of interact with it. And it will, you know, make your skin look a little bit more glowy than when you first applied the Met Foundation . Whereas if you have dry skin and you apply Matt Foundation than your face may look exceedingly dry. So usually going for something that's more satin finish, meaning that's a sheen to it. Um, like, for example, I used it infallible here, and if you can see right now on my hand, it's still setting, so we need to give it a bit more time. But if you take a look at my hand, you're gonna realize it's not completely flat. It's not met. So if I kind of like, shifted around, you're going to realize there's a little bit of sheen when it comes to when it comes to the foundations, watch right there. So this is an example of a set and finish foundation, where it's not completely flat and dry on your skin, and then we also have, um, very dewy finish foundations. I don't have any of that because I'm very oily. So do we. Finish is basically they have a lot of glow and a lot of slip to them, so when you apply them, your face looks I'm pretty shiny. Of course, you can take me down of a little bit of foundation as right with a little bit of powder. So it's really kind of up to you. What kind of look you're going for? The next thing you knew thing about would be coverage of your foundation. That really depends on your skin and your personal preference. So when I first started the makeup, it was mostly because I wanted to cover up my acne scarring. So I went with the double where now the double where it is. A very full coverage concealer. So it's a very full coverage foundation, meaning that it really can cover up any traces of your bare skin so it can look a little bit heavy. And it, you know, it just kind of doesn't look very natural. But, you know, that was the look I was going for when I was younger back then, and now, as I'm a little bit older, Um, I'm still have my acne scars, but I think I'm okay with that or grew to be comfortable of that. So I stopped it to use light to coverage foundations, so my favorite currently would be definitely the Loreal. And the May believe they have pretty much medium foundation, medium courage foundations. But I think they work sufficiently well in kind of evening out my skin tone and, you know, kind of like masking any imperfections that I might have. And if the coverage is not sufficient, I just go on with conceit list. There's nothing to nothing too big deal that and of course, he also very light coverage foundations, which I think would be really good if you don't have a lot of my imperfections on your face . And you just kind of want to even out your skin tone. This one works really well. It feels really like Wait on the face really good for clients with, you know, really flawless skin. They don't really have any scars or any, like um, h spots or whatever on the faces you can. I usually go with this Now you can also think about if you only want to buy one foundation . You can think about getting something that you're comfortable with on a daily basis, so usually for me, it would be something that's like a medium coverage, so it's not too heavy on the skin. And then if you are going for a very, you know, big event of very like a party, and you kind of really want to dress up what you can do, Um, and it's available on the market, it would be something like that, which is a cover FX. This is the cover effects. Custom cover drops. So what this does? It's basically pure pigment. You add it to your foundation. So if you add it to light Celia Medium Coverage Foundation, it's going to make it more full coverage. So it's kind of like allows you to kind of at the coverage to your foundation if you need it. Um, so that's something you can think about as well. Now it's really up to you how much you're willing to spend on your foundation and so on. But if I say if you are a beginner, you just want to get one foundation for like data use. I would say a light and medium coverage is probably sufficient, Um, so that you know you're comfortable applying it. It doesn't feel too heavy and it looks a little bit more natural. And if you really want to pump up, you know the coverage, and at more you can go off like a custom cover. Drop all you can even go on with a powder foundation to add on coverage after your foundation. If you feel like it's necessary, the last thing that we're going to talk about will be the type of foundation. So as you can see these at all liquid foundations. So they worked really well for beginners because they're quite easy to blood, you know, and, um, they're quite malleable. You can move them around before they set, and then you also have powder foundation. So, for example, these So this is the famous. While I think, the most well known powder foundation. This is the bare minerals powder foundations. If I opened it up, it looks like that. So what you going to do if the powder foundation is? You have a little bit on your cap and then you swirl your brush around and kind of go over your face. This that's good coverage, and I do think it works quite well for oily skin because you know powders there really just absorb all this? Even so, they work really great. And it's a very fast option because, to be honest, blending it, it takes almost no time. Assuming that you know your brushes well coated with the powder and so on the other kind for quick touch ups or even, you know, just applying it to setting a makeup is, for example, this. I apologize for my sponge, but, um, this is a pressed powder foundation. It adds good coverage as well. So if you need to, you know, add a little bit more coverage to set your makeup does this kind of option. Recently, cushion foundations also became very popular. So they're really good touch of options, in my opinion, all you know, just in a rush. So I have three examples right here to our from curry and brands and ones from makeup forever. They were equally good. This is from my favorite, actually. So it usually comes of a sponge right here, and then you basically take the sponge between your fingers. Open this up, and then you kind of I put this bunch in, pounds it in an implanted on tree of these I personally have been using cushion foundations nonstop because there a lot faster. I don't have to take out like a blending brush on my beauty blender. I can just use the sponges in it. So this is something you can think about us. Well, I would say the biggest con off powder certain that I would say the biggest con off cushion foundations is that the shades are not great. Usually especially Korean brands. The shades are very, very limited, maybe have, like three shades, and they're usually not dark enough because they are technically catering to the curry and people who are quite fan. In general, for example, this is the duck, a shade of foundation or the, you know, cushion Foundation that they have, and it's still a little bit light for me. Um, so that's something to take notice. Well, so you have cushions, powders like that, and then, of course, your quits as well. So it's really up to you what you're comfortable of using, um, and your preference and as well as price point. So it's really up to you to decide which foundation you want. 4. How to choose a foundation brush (or sponge): So now let's talk a little bit about tools for applying foundation. So there are quite a few in the market, so mainly their brushes like these kinds right here and then. Of course, you also have the beauty sponges, which became popular roughly in the last. I would say 3 to 4 years, so it's really dependent on what kind of results you one from applying your foundation as well as the coverage that you need. So let's talk a little bit about brushes fest, so there are quite a lot of brushes out there in the market. But ultimately there are two things you really need to look out for when choosing a foundation brush. So the very first thing you need to look out for will be the density of the bristles. So let's take a look at all these buffing brushes, and these are stippling brushes, so I want you to just see how many bristles a pecked in the Farrell. All right, so as you can see these a lot denser compact to these. So the general rule is if your foundation brush is denser, it's going to pack a lot more foundation onto your skin giving you a full of coverage. So that's the first thing you need. Think about so its density. Now, let me just show you a typical buffing brush. So, for example, you have one like that right here, as you can kind of see, this is a really dense brush. It has a lot of bristles packed into the Farrell. So when you apply foundation using this brush, a lot of it, um, the brush will soak up quite a bit of foundation, and it's going to apply quite a bit of foundation onto your face, and then s u buffet in it's going to give you a lot more coverage, whereas if you take a look, for example, at a stippling brush like that. So, as you can see, this brush has not a lot of bristles. Okay, it's still quite a bit, but it's not as much as compared to let's see this one in terms of density. So that's one thing you need. Think about, think about as well because the less the less of the bristles, the less foundations going toe beyond the brush and indefinite less, it will be applied on your face so I hope that makes sense. So the very first thing you need to think about will be the density of the bristles off your foundation brush the second factor. You actually need to think about what actually be the length off. The bristles survive again. Used these two examples right here. You can see if I show you these two examples again, you can kind of see that the stippling brush has a lot more. The bristles are a lot longer here, whereas the buffing brushes. The bristles tend to be a lot shorter, so the length of the bristles basically give you amount of control that you have, as well as the pressure that you're going to be applying. So, if not, say, I used a buffing brush fest, so because it's relatively short on wherever your head is right. So when you hold the brush and then you apply the foundation onto your skin, the pressure from your hands will kind of like translate to kind of like how you press the foundation into your skin. I hope that makes sense, So the length of the bristles kind of give you the ability to kind of control how much foundation. You are buffing into the skin as well as kind of like it puts more foundation into the skin . I had one time, so I hope that kind of makes sense. So that's why I take a look at another buffing brush, which is the real techniques one. If I put this side right side, you're going to realize that the length of the bristles are different as well. So they are quite a few things to think about when just choosing of buffing brush for applying your foundation. So if you now take a look at the stepping brush, the bristles are a lot longer, right. So this means when you the foundation touches the tip of the bristles. Here and now when you touch it, you press it against your face. Your hands are technically a bit further away from the skin as well as their technically will be less pressure. So as you brought the foundation in, it's going to provide a lot more of a natural coverage. It's going to look a lot more natural on the skin as well, so that those attitudes things to think about when it comes to foundation brushes okay. The most common foundation brush in the market right now will be a buffing brush. But there again Ah, different varieties of buffing brushes. So, for example, these are technically all buffing brushes. They just come in different shapes. Eso really it's up to your personal preference. So, for example, this one is just sitting in a tree, tht you can kind of see the head. It's like that. So it kind of the flat sides give you kind of like control over the flatter contours of your skin there off your face. And then you also have this one, which is, you know, flat. But then it's lent it to the side. And then, of course, you have the circular round one like that, and then you have a tape it round one like that. So again, I really person other thing. It's up to personal preference. There's no right or wrong foundation brush, but if let's say you would want to use a foundation dreadful multi tasking, I generally prefer something with an angle, so this can actually kind of like double up. It's like a cream contra and bronzer, um, brush as well, because you can kind of align it below your cheekbones, those on my suggestions, but ultimately it's kind of what you feel comfortable with. Um, I'm generally prefer to use the rial technics one, though, because it's a lot smaller, so it gives me a lot more control as to where I wonder further bath the foundation. I hope that makes sense, but you know, personal preference all again when it comes to buffing brushes. Then off course we have the beauty blender or, you know, the famous beauty sponges. I really do like beauty blenders. They are very multi purpose, and I do think that they are a lot more forgiving when it comes to applying foundation. So I have the typical pink one right here. It's quite also you can kind of see like the grooves. I'm sorry, but I personally find a beauty blend is what really, really well and blending our foundation or any crime products on your face, and it's a lot more lenient. So let's say you're a beginner, and you're not really sure how to blend products in. I do recommend a beautyblender. This is a damp beautyblender, so, as you can tell, it's a little bit big, whereas if I didn't dampen it, it would be a little bit smaller like that. Damn sponges are usually how we use it with we usually dump in this munch so that it doesn't soak up as much foundation when we apply it. Um, but of course, if you want a full of coverage, you can don't dump in your sponge will just absorb a lot more foundation, but it will give you a full coverage on the skin. So that's again up to you. So once again, it's really up to you. Which one you want to use? I actually have both. It really just depends on the client, as was the preference personally, for me, they're for quick and hassle free application. I generally always just go with the beauty blender or some form of beauties. Bunch. Just do know that beauty of sponges don't last very long because off hygienic reasons. So usually I will replace my beautyblender every I would say six months, whereas this foundation brush has been with me for about three years now. So that's also something for you to consider, which is the price point? Better than that? I hope that helped and let's move on to the next class 5. How to prevent foundation separation: how to prevent foundation from separating on your face. So there are three kinds in the market right now. We have silicon based water based and oil bees, but they're very, very rare, so we're just going to look at those two now. If you want to tell your product of Silicon Days, you need to look after ingredients that usually and movies like Cone Matic own and select sane. Usually they'll be at the top of the ingredients list, which means then higher quantities. And these are some of the comments in the cons that you'll find in a lot of the products right now. Now, a lot of times, if you look at the ingredients in his water, will be the feds ingredient. Now that doesn't mean it's automatically water base. You need to find if there's any silicon ingredients in the ingredients list. So let's take a look. For example, at the two phase born This Way Foundation, you can see even the water is stiffest ingredient. There are four other kinds of silicon in the ingredients list, so therefore, this is a silicon based foundation, so all you have to do is look at the ingredients in this. If there are no silicones at the top, usually this means there's more water content in the product, and it's a water based product. So, for example, let's take a look at the makeup forever water based foundation. You can see there's not a lot of silicon and angry ins at all. So therefore, this is a water based foundation, so I hope this helps. So the general rule is, if you use a silicon based primary, you would like to use a silicon based foundation. So this week they were work together really well, and they won't separate. Whereas if you use a silicon based primer and let's say use a water based foundation, then it's not gonna work very well, and that's gonna cost separation on your face. So let me give you an example. So this is, for example, the elf mineral infused primary, and I want you to take a look at the ingredients list right here. So, as you can see from the fest, two ingredients you will realize doesn't Salak scene and then the fed ingredient, his domestic own as well as this one here, this one here. It's just basically a silicon based Prime A. So I'm gonna put up a list of the ingredients for the bond This way foundation. And, as you can see from the ingredients list, there's a lot of DeMatha cones as well. So these two are silicon based, and they will work perfectly fine with each other versus it. Let's say use Silicon Base primal with, let's say, a water based foundation. Then you know, silicon sand and water. They don't really mix very well. So what's gonna happen is they will probably separate on your face throughout the date. I hope that makes sense. So really, just take a good look at your prime is two ingredients and as well as on your foundation. So you have a better idea of how they're going to interact on your skin so that you don't get any foundation separating throughout the day. 6. How to apply foundation for dry skin: Now let's talk a little bit about how I apply foundation for dry skin. So there are a few tips that I would like to share with you, the very first minus When it comes to dry skin, skin preparation is extremely, extremely important. So you please make sure that you know you cleanse the skin. You've moisturized it thoroughly and you can also use Ah, hydrating primal. So, for example, I have these two here. These are hydrating prima's like the back of first, like climbing filter. Right Here s well as the Ilham Esca Hydra bail, which I've shown previously. So using a maestri moisturizing and hydrating primal will help as well. Oh, you can actually also use some form of dry oil. So I like to use this one when it comes Teoh clients of dry skin. I find that a little bit off. This really, really helps when it comes to a hydrating the skin and making sure that the foundation doesn't dry out the skin too much throughout the day. Another thing you can do is, instead of applying this on the skin fest, you can actually makes it if your foundation, so I'll talk a little bit about that. When it comes to foundation for dry skin, choose something that say's like hydrating Or, you know, has, like, some form of luminosity or radiance. Don't go for anything that says Matt, or, you know, like, yes, it don't go for anything that say's Matt, because those are usually men for oily skin, so it can be a little bit drawing, so I only have this one that can find in my collection. This is the Eleanor Hydrating Foundation, but there are a lot more in the market out there. It's just because I have oily skin. I don't really have, um, a lot of foundations with dried skin. So the very first thing I like to do is I'll take a bit of foundation, pump it to the back of my hand, and then I'm just going to put a little bit off this dry oil onto the foundation as all mix it up together and then blend it onto the skin. So I find that you know the mixture of these two are like just an oil has a The foundation really helps to kind of like give edit hydration to the skin so the skin doesn't look, um, as dry throughout the day. So if you want your foundation to look fresh and it doesn't seep into any off the lines of the cracks, I do feel that the oil helps, so you can definitely try it out and see how it works for you. Um, and also what you can do to improve. I would say the foundation appearance would be to add a bit of liquid bloomin eyes is so These are some examples of liquid highlighters that I have in my foundation, like I started my collections, and this is like the next makeup forever. Makeup, revolution and pixie. You just need, like a little little bit. Makes it a few foundation at the back of your hand again before application, and you're just at a little bit off luminosity and radiance to the skin, which looks really nice and dry skin. This is because, you know, dry skin doesn't really produce a lot of CVM throughout the day, so the foundation can look a little bit flat, so adding a little bit off like radiance and luminosity could definitely help make the skin look a little bit more glowy and healthy. So, lastly, when it comes to blending foundations, I'd like to use a beauty sponge. So dry skin. What I have really noticed is that that tends to be kind of like dry flakes on the skin sometimes, so you don't really want to use like a buffing brush and then buff the foundation. Interesting, because the buffing brush demotion will just kind of like if the dry patches and it's going to result in clumping. So what I prefer to do is use a damp beautyblender Sudan. The water content and beautyblender also helps with the blending of the foundation, and then you just might be packed it onto the skin. This way, you're not lifting up any dry patches, and you're kind of like pressing it down. S O. I personally find that it works a lot easier with the beautyblender. So for dry skin, generally it's up to you. I tend not to actually set the makeup with powder. If you really do insist on setting. If you make up powder, what you can do is find some form of translucent powder like that, so it's very, very light. It's just that to kind of make sure that make up doesn't slip inside. Um, but don't put on too much of it because remember, powder absorbs moisture, and you don't want that to happen when you have dry skin because you need all the moisture that you can get. Now, let's move on to how to apply foundation for oily skin. 7. How to apply foundation for oily skin: some tips on how to apply foundation when it comes to oily skin, so same thing of dry skin prepping the skin is really important now. If you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize your skin. The reason is because I know some many, many people. They think that because they have oily skinned and Stephen production, they don't have to hydrate their skin. But actually that's a myth. So please moisturize as well and then move on to a primal. So, like I mentioned in a prime, a video you can use prima's like that. So anything that says poor filling or blurring because generally people of oily skins do have larger polls. So that's something you can try and some primacy also kind of like prevent Seebohm interaction with the foundations, and it's gonna work really well as well. So after you moist, rising crime, trying to look for a foundation that say something along the lines of Met, a long lasting. So, for example, this is Tim. Ebeling fit me, it says Met, and Paul is so you definitely know that you know it's going to help the skin look a little bit more kind of like Matt throughout today, many people of oily skin. One thing I realized because I have oily skin is that throughout the day the skin's gonna look a lot more shiny because of us, even production. So finding a foundation that says Matt would definitely help you as well. When it comes to oily skin, there's no personal preference. You can use buffing brushes. You can use the beauty blender. It's really up to you. I personally prefer both. It just depends on the look that I'm going for. If I want to get full of coverage when it comes to the skin, I would generally go for Buffett brush and then the last step. So this is quite important. If you are done with your foundation application and it looks really good, it's time to set your makeup. So for oily skin, folks, we need to settle makeup to kind of like prevent the foundation applied from slipping on our skin, especially when the Seebohm is produced from US skin. So you can use any form of powder that you would like. You can look for things like that that says No CIB Um, so it's, you know it helped. It kind of hints to you that's gonna help of semen production. You can use some form of translucent powder like that. I hope you can kind of see this is just a translucent powder. This is a Korean brand. And then, if you want added coverage, she can also use a powder foundation. So, for example, this is like the Loreal Powder Foundation right here, so you can definitely do that as well. But very important for dries, very important for oily skin people, we need to set it. This is because if we don't set it throughout the day, I'll see Boma interact with the foundation, and it's going to cause the foundation to slip, so that's very important. So let's recap very quickly for oily skin. First step is to make sure you prep your skin, make sure you cleanse it and you moisturize it. If not, your skin will just produce more Sieben because he thinks that it you know it needs to compensate. So Marx tries e skin. Then you're going to use some form of like Paul feeling primary or like a C bem, a primer that helps to reduce Stephen production or prevent CBM from interacting with your foundation. Find a foundation that's that says something along the lines off met. That usually helps when it comes to oily skin. Then you can use any buffing brushes or sponges that's up to you. And lastly, you need to set your makeup of some form of powder to prevent the foundation from slipping . So I hope this Hampson, let's move on to the next class. 8. Powder before foundation technique : This is also a little technique that you can try if you have oily skin, and that's actually the powder before foundation routine. I don't know if you've heard that before, but actually this works really well for oily skin. So I know it kind of contradicts everything and makeup where it's always creams before powder. But this method works only if you use a really a thin veil of translucent powder. So what you can do is you just take a really it's after your prime, your skin right. Take a really, really thin layer of powder like that, so any translucent powder works to take a thin veil of it. Brush it all over your skin with maybe, like a large powder brush, and then what you're going to do after that is you're going to apply a foundation like normal. So put some foundation back off your hand, take a beautyblender and pounds it onto the skin. After that, if you want to go on of another Lee of Powder, that's really up to you, I find that it's not necessary when I tried his method out for myself. But I really find that this technique really helped to kind off control this even production. I don't know. There's something about applying foundation first that prevents the interaction of the Seagram of the foundation. So I found that the foundation didn't slip and slide as much, and my skin didn't look a shiny trophy. You can definitely try this and, you know, see how it goes because usually from me, because I have oily skin. Sometimes if I know that I want my foundation to last, and I want to make sure that I don't have to touch up throughout the day. This is detecting that I go for So it's the powder before foundation techniques, so I hope you'll try that and let me know how it goes. 9. Differences between foundation and concealer : let's talk a little bit about the purposes of concealers and foundations and are the interchangeable and other necessary. So I'm gonna show you here for foundations from my collection. So we have the Mablean Loreal makeup forever and you've seen Laurent and then I'm also going to show you full concealers that I have in my collection currently the color pop Mablean countries and the Norris. So there are different forms of concealers here. We have mostly liquids and this one's a cream. And then these, um generally medium to full coverage foundations. Except for this one, this one's a skin tent, which is really, really liked. So ultimately, what is the difference? Foundations are meant to even out skin tone that is, the main peppers de were developed in the first place. Why we apply foundation Firstly is if you don't apply any foundation and you take your look at yourself in a mirror, you're going to realize that you know, sudden parts of your face is a little bit DACA so especially to areas around the forehead. And I believe the treat bones, you're gonna realize, you know, there's a little bit of natural shadows right there the skin tone may not be very even, whereas the center part of your face, usually around the nose and a cheek area, would be a lot lighter or brighter in shades. So applying a layer of foundation kind of lying gives you a clean canvas to kind of applying makeup over so it really evens out your skin tone. And it can provide some coverage for you to reduce any imperfections that you might want to cover up. So, for example, these two foundations that I have the arm medium coverage so usually if I put them all over my face, I don't really see the need to conceal further with a concealer when it comes to like any spots of scarring. So it's really up to personal preference, whether you choose a light coverage foundation or like a heavy one. Like for example, I also have this one, which is the Estee Lauder double, where this is a really, really full coverage foundation. Eso generally, if you use this, the chances of you having to spot correct after will be quiet low, so it really depends on the look that you're going forwards well, but ultimately, foundations are meant to even out skin tone concealers. On the other hand, the main goal really is just to cover up or conceal certain parts of your face. So if you take a look at, let's say this found this concealer. This is the color pop one. They usually come of dough food applicators, especially the liquid ones. This kind of gives you a hint that, um, you shouldn't be spearing it all over your face. It's usually to tug, it said in spots on your face. Like acne. Scars may be all a reddish pimple or dark under eye circles. Considers generally have full coverage as compared to foundations, and they're more concentrated. So usually they give you a lot more coverage, so concealing and just to even out skin tone. So I hope that kind of clears the differences. Now. Do you really need both of them? It really depends on your skin. Some people are really, really good skin, so they don't see the need to actually use foundation. They can just spot crew of concealers that works perfectly fine. And if you do have some acne, scarring or written is like I do usually evening out with foundation and then going ahead with spot. Correcting with concealer is can also provide a desire look, so it's up to your personal preference. But generally I would recommend getting a foundation that works for you, probably something like light to medium. And then, if you have any other different scars that you kind of want to conceal, then you can go for a concealer. Because the thing is one thing about full coverage foundations. If you put it all over your face, it can look a little bit heavy. Um, if that's a look that you're going for, go ahead. But you know, if you're going for a more natural look, but you still want to cover up some scars, I recommend just going like a medium coverage foundation and then spot correcting if you're concealers instead. So I hope this makes sense. And now let's talk a little bit about how to choose foundations 10. How to choose concealers: Now let's talk about how to choose. Conceal it. So there are different kinds of concealers. You have those and liquid form usually coming with the dough food applicator, and then you also have cream form. So, for example, the Norris soft Met concealers. Um, personally, for me, it really depends on what you're trying to cover. I find when it comes to light imperfections on the face, I tend to go for cream concealers. They're a lot easier to kind of, like blend and manage, because if you think about it, they're a little bit less fluid. So it's easier for you to kind of like spot correct a seven pot on your face. However, when it comes to duck under eye circles, I tend to go for liquid concealers cause I put quite a bit underneath the eyes and and I blended up with my beautyblender. So again it's really up to you. Concealers, like foundations, have different kinds of coverage. For example, this one here, this is the country's hi coverage concealer. As the name suggests, this is a high coverage concealer. It's really good for the drug store, and I do really like it s so there's something that they take note off. I like to use high coverage concealers when it comes to my under eyes because I have pretty dark under eye circles. Whereas let's say the Maybelline's fit me. I would say this is like a medium buildable to maybe a medium for coverage concealer. So again, you got kind of have to read the reviews off the concealers and figure out which kind of foundation as a reach kind of coverage suits you the best. My favorite current conceiving right now is actually the tart shaped tape. So I think you know, you've been seeing this all over, and that's because this found this concealer is full coverage. It works really well in covering my daughter indoors and honestly, a little bit goes a really long way of this one, so you kind of go to try it out. So, um, I tried this color pop one. Many people say it has really good coverage, and so what it does. But I feel that it creeps into my fine lines underneath the eyes, so I don't really like it does much, and I go for the tart. So how do you choose the consulate. A quick tip is you're gonna apply it on the knuckles off your hands. Now Why? This is not to shape match, by the way. You can also do that with foundations but foundations. I don't think it's that obvious, but you can definitely do it. Conceal it. So what you're gonna do is if you're going to try getting a consulate for your under eye circles and you have quite a bit of lines underneath the eyes like I do. This is something you can try to see whether it will seep into your under eyes. So what you're going to do is you're going to take a bit of concealer and you're gonna put it on your knuckles here. Yeah, I know it's a little bit strange. So why knuckles? The reason is because if you take a look at your knuckles there Ah, lot of lines and it moves a lot. The skin around your knuckles move a lot. It's the same thing with your face your under eye. Because when you smile when you frown, you know, and things like that your under eyes move a well, a move about under my skin moves quite a bit as well. So I did this beforehand. So because you kind of have to let it set and dry and and see how it looks like. So I applied the color pop one on my knuckle here, so I'm gonna remove these. Okay, So I hope you can see So if you take a look at my right knuckle So I've applied it right here, Okay? I don't know what you can even just see it from my hands like this. Pot off my knuckle looks a lot more line e or more creasy than this pot. Do you realize, like, the lines around my knuckles? A lot more emphasized. Here. This is this one. Now, if I'm gonna put two of my knuckles beside like, this is the knuckle without any product and this is the knuckle with all right, you can see that the concealer here really did emphasize deadlines on my knuckles. And this is a good sign that if you use this concealer under your eyes, it's going to do the same thing. So that's why if it's for under eye circles as sorry for under eyes, I don't like the color pop concealer, it really tends to creep into my mind's. So this is one way you can kind of test out to sea now. It's not a full proof way, but it kind of helps you to see how to conceal it, interacts of mines and movement. And then you can realize that this is actually not great. So I hope this little tip helps you, and it comes to choosing found choosing consulates. 11. Demo // foundation application: so I'm not going to demonstrate how I'm gonna apply foundation on my face. I'm gonna show one side using a foundation brush and then the other side using the beautyblender. So I hope this demonstration would help. So just for reference, I have oily skin. And as you can see right now, I am breaking out quite a bit. So it's perfect for me to show you how to cover up those pimples as well. So that's begin. So because I have oily skin to primer that I'm going to use would be a poor feeling, kind. So, like mentioned in the other class I'm going to be using to make it forever. You just need, like, a little bit. You don't need a lot of it. So I'm just gonna take maybe about a pea sized amount. Something like that will be more than enough. And what I'm going to do is I'm going to kind of press it into my skin. You don't have to put it all over your face. You're gonna put it on certain areas that you feel that your paws are exceptionally big. So, for example, for me, I don't know if you can tell. I have a lot of my pause, a lot more noticeable around my nose area as well as this area here on my forehead, the dead. So I'm gonna put the prime at. So now I'm going to take a little bit of the Perma, separate it down between the two fingers here, and I'm just gonna precedence. So I'm gonna press it in here. Remember, press don't swipe, put a little bit on top of the nose and then a little bit at a full hit here. This is where I mostly need it. And then I'm just gonna press it in. I forgot to mention my skin is a has been cleansed and has been moisturized. So please don't skip skin care before you apply your makeup. Especially oily skin, especially. We have oily skin. Sometimes, you know, we feel that we don't have to more stress cause for so oily. But remember, moisturize ation is really important in providing the hydration that you need. So you must more strikes. But you have oily or dry skin. So now that department has been kind of like pushed into my skin. I'm now going to apply foundation so because I have oily skin, the one I chose to use for demonstration purposes today will be to fit me. So as you can see under thing on the bottle, it is met and Pulis. So it's perfect for oily skin. Girls like us. I'm gonna take a little bit of foundation and put it at the back of my hand. Now, remember, So foundation is really used to kind of even out the skin tone. It's not really freed. You kind of build up the coverage and to cover up like these sports over here, we'll do that with concealer. So I put this amount. To be honest, I personally feel like this is a little bit much, but it's OK. So now what I'm going to do is I'm going to put a little bit of foundation all over my face , and then I'll show you how to blend it now that in general the rule is you kind of want to focus your foundation application in the center of your face because whenever you see somebody, your first impression of the pest said it's always going to be the center of the face so you don't have to kind of, like go so heavy on the sides. I hope that makes sense. So the rule is always to blend from in to out. So I'm going to put a bit of foundation here, maybe, like three dots on each cheek, maybe two dots on the forehead, a little bit down the nose, upper lip and chin. So for this site, I'm going to show you using the buffet brush so I have the real techniques. Buffing brush This one is from I think this is the expert face brush. So it's a very affordable brush that you can find in the drug stows and then what you want to do. If a buffing brush is, you can start swiping down what's best like that just to kind of like, you know, spread the foundation evenly onto your face. But remember, as used to wipe them, press it in a little bit to your skin so that you know it's not just sitting on your skin, but it's kind of like walking into into the skin, and I once you're satisfied with, like you know, just a pressing the foundation into your skin, you can now go circular motions and blend it out. So again how you hold your brushes really up to you. The closer you go to the feral, the more pressure you have. So it can also push the foundation in a little bit further so it can give you a little bit more like full of coverage. And if you hold a brush kind of like further out less pressure will be provided and then deaf, or it can be a little bit more natural. So that's up to you. I generally just like to hold it kind of here, like in the middle. And I'm just gonna blend it. Don't forget this sites of your nose he oppressive in. So this is kind of how the foundation looks like now. So now I'm going to move on to this side. I'm sorry. I'm sweating. Um, so I'm going to move on to this site using the beautiful. So this sign I've already dumping my beauty blend. A serious can see, it's quite big. So for beauty minus what you want to do is kind of like pounds to foundation into your skin . OK? So as you can see, I have quite a bit of pimples on this side. It's quite obvious. Don't expect the foundation completely cover it. The foundations not meant to do that. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna follow up with concealer after, So now I'm just going to blend it in, pounds the foundation in. Don't forget the parents decide of the notes again. So as you can kind of see now with the foundation, my skin tones a lot more, even as compared to previously. But of course, the you know, the acne scars and the pimples are still noticeable. So we're definitely going to cover that up with Consuela. Um, so remember, the main goal of foundation is really just to even out skin tone. So this is kind of what we're going for now. Don't forget to also blend your foundation down your neck because you kind of want this whole area to match sometimes. You know, if your phone nation doesn't match, you're going to see that line right here. And you don't want that. So any spare foundation that I have, I'm kind of just gonna bring it down my neck so that it matches does have you like spray 10 or things like that as well. Just keep in mind. Because sometimes, you know, I was like, for example, my body Eat this. The shade of my body doesn't really match my face because I always put like sunscreen on my face. So that's something to keep in mind as well. Our body is not one shade, so just kind of four seamless, you know, Look, we're going apply it down on Nexus will. Okay, so this is the final result. Just using foundation. So as you can kind of tell it even out skin tone. But at the same time, it kind of reduced like the natural shadows of my face. So I kind of look a little bit pale. So that's where we're gonna put Contra blush, bronzer and highlight, if that's your thing. So I'll show you that in the next class. Just Teoh give you re came off the two tips. Always remember to plan your foundation. Kind of like from your news outwards, because this is dissenter off attraction. So you kind of want to make this. It's the center part of your face.

So because my face is looking dimension and my face is generally a lot lighter than my body . I don't know if you can tell. So what I'd like to do first is I would Bronze, if I'm actually going to do that for the date. Now, there are two kinds of weights to bronze. You can use cream. Bronze s it. For example. I'm going to show you using the Chanel Soleil day Attention. L which is a cream bronze. It like that. And I will also show you on the other side of powder bronzer, powder, bronzes, something like that. This is I got this from Australia. It's the Mecca Mac sunlit bronzer. But any kind of bronzes were work. Now, in general, just keep in mind. Bronzes and contour powders are completely different things, So bronzes are generally a lot warmer. They are meant to kind of like at once, to your skin at radiance. So usually you see a lot bronzers reflection minute, whereas quantum powders Ah, la kula and they kind of mimic shadows on your face. I'm going to show you that in the next class. But now we're just going to bronze to skin. So I'm going to do one site cream and then the other side with powder Now for cream. I'm not going to set my makeup, so I'm just going to work with the foundation and concealer fest. Whereas when it comes to the powder site, I am going to send my makeup for us before set the foundation concealer with powder before I go on with all the powder products. So just remember, it's always cream before powder, so you I cant might put Powder products fest and then, you know, it won't really blend, probably. So I'm just going to set this site with powder and then I'll demonstrate so out stand with the cream fest. So I have the Chanel bronzer And to make things a lot simpler of the demonstration, I'm just gonna use my beautyblender. So you actually real realize beauty blend is quite versatile or just beauty spiders in general, so you can definitely do that. Now keep in mind the way I'm during it, it's really for personal usage because I'm gonna put my beautyblender inter product. But if you're, you know, doing it for clients, then probably using like a clean brush, like a clean buffing brush. To do that on the face would be a lot more hygienic. So I'm gonna take my beautyblender the butt off the beautiful under, which is the around the site kind of go into money, Bronson just a little bit. I don't want too much. And then how you usually bronzes to kind of follow this three shape? So the forehead, the cheek area and then the underneath the joined a jawline itself. Because if you think about the sun, that's kind of where the sun will hit. Because that's where your facial contours kind of like pop out the most. So I'm gonna take my my beauty blend of bronze and just kind of like pounds it on the skin . It's a very subtle look. Um, you know, you shouldn't be walking around and a and other people, Bill Oh, she's wearing bronzer, so I don't really like to pile on a lot of bronze. Oh, maybe just like a little bit just to add a little bit more dimension to the face. So, Like that for me is actually good enough. Um, so I don't know if you can tell if I look this way, maybe you can actually see now like this. Part of my face has a lot more dimension in a sense that there's a little bit more shading back to my face as compared to previously. Without the bronze up, Bronson's can also help you to look a little bit more healthy. Ah, healthier because if you think about it, it's like you're in the sun, you know, you're underneath your getting suntanned all you're getting 10 by the sense of it kind of gives you a very radiant look, which I do like. So this is the site of the cream bronze at just a very light one for me. Now to show you the other side of the powder bronzer, I'm going to set the face fest. I'm just going to use the translucent powder like that. This is a curry and brand, but, um, any form of powder that you like we'll be fine if you remember. If you want to add wolf coverage, you can use like a powder foundation. But I'm satisfied with the coverage that I have some just gonna use trances and powder I'm just gonna put a little bit into the cap like that. I hope he can see take a brush. So I'm just going to use this Russia, swirl it in the cap and then just kind of dust it on this side. You don't need to put a lot of powder just a little bit, just kind of like to make sure that the creams don't slip and smile, and it's kind of providing a smooth surface for you to put your other products on. So I think this is good. So if you run your hand along it, it shouldn't kind of like you shouldn't grip onto the skin. So that's the whole purpose of my powder. Because if you don't set your makeup sometimes, what could happen is if you apply like cream. Sorry. If you apply like powder blush is and all that, um, the cream might hold onto the power there so that you might get explosion. So that's not something that you want. Now I'm going to use the same brush. So again, just for the purposes of this demo, I'm going to use the same brush for all the products, so it's kind of like to show you how you can buy with one brush. So this is, for example, a slanted tape. Yeah, I would say it's a slanted she brush like that. So as you can see, it's wanted to a site. I can show you how to use it. Bronzes countries blush is as was highlighted. So if you're a makeup beginner, you don't need to go and buy like a whole arsenal makeup brushes. You can use one and multi task, if that's what you want to do. So I'm just gonna show you how to do that. So now I'm going to take the same brush with the bronze it. Now, when it comes to bronze, a bronze is kind of all over s. So I'm going to put the whole brush in like that. So I don't know if you can see just like that. And then when it comes to powder products, you want to always take that so you don't have any access on your your brush. Because if not the moment put it onto your face. That's gonna be a lot of product. And then same thing. Eso Just remember when it comes Teoh applying powder products, especially the point where you put your brush fest onto your skin is where most of the deposit off the product will be, So it's going to be the most intense. So, for example, for me, I prefer the most intense part to be here. That's where I'm going to start with my brush and then just slowly bring it down. And then now that most of the product has kind of been dispose, I'm just going to go like that. So the same thing in the shape of the three. But I can go in circular motions of the brush. You can bring it down the Maxwell just a little bit here so that, you know, everything is nice, and even I find powders to be a lot less forgiving. So gold light, and then if you want to build it up, you can vestige of you go really heavy. It's very difficult for you to kind of remove the intensity that way. So, um, I don't know if you can tell my skin looks a little bit more dimensional, so I've added in a little bit more bronze. I'm just gonna go in just a little bit more. Yeah. So what I like to do as well is if you think about it. I don't know if it works for you. I mean, I don't know if this happens to you by actually, whenever I get son Ben, it's always my nose. So I like to just take a little bit of bronzer just like a little bit tap tap, and then just kind of go over my nose a little bit. Um, don't you know that it's going to be, like, all brown just a little bit, just to give it a more like natural effect? So that's kind of how I bronze. So as you can see, this site is using creams, whereas decide it's using powder. So I hope this helps, and I'm going to show you how to corn toe 13. Demo // contour: So now that we've bronzed, what we're going to do now is we're gonna corn toe. So, like I was saying, contouring powders and bronzes are slightly different. The reason is because bronzes are mostly to add warmth to the skin at radiance and glow, whereas contra powders mimic shadows. So if you realize the shadows off your face generally very cool toad they usually gear to its maybe like a little bit of grey, so usually contact padded out cool tone as well. So this is, for example, in my England um, contouring powder. So as you can see from the shade or the tone of it, it's a little bit cool tone verses of Let's Say I should compare it to my bronzer, the one that I just use. It's like that, so I kind of hope you can tell the difference. So, um, the way you apply contours it really the way you applied Contour pounded. It really depends on the look that you're going for. Usually we kind of go back to weather natural shadows, also usually, for me, it will be underneath the cheekbone and then just a little bit below the jawline, and I'll use a bit of contouring powder on the noses well on, and that's enough for me personally. But some people they like to, you know, put a little bit below the lip to kind of make the lip look bigger. And some people that put a little bit on the forehead because it let's see your forehead looks a little if your forehead is a little bit bigger than you would like it to be. Adding Contra powders to the site can actually give the illusion of it being small. And so that's something you can think about as well. So I'm going to show you, using both again cream and powder. So, for example, for my cream site, I'm going to use the Ilham Esca gel sculpt So it looks like this. So, as you can see, I'm gonna watch it. It's quite a cool toned product as well. So remember this site was dick cream. The set was to powder, so I'm going to show you the cream fist. So for me, like I said, I'm only going to put it a little bit underneath mine cheekbone right here and then a little bit along the jaw line like that. I don't really put it on my forehead because I don't really feel the need to do that. And then I'm going to draw a line down my nose like that as well. And then a line here. So remember contouring. It's kind of like you won that area to sink in, so it kind of gives the illusion off death in your on your skin. And then I'm just going to blend it out, using the beautyblender again. So this time around, I'm going to turn a beautyblender to the site, squeeze it down a little bit and then press it. So doing, like pounds it all over. Then you hope the whole area is just gonna look really muddy. So just kind of like press that into the skin. So, like for me, because my nose is a little bit boldness, meaning it's a little round of the end. That's why I put like a line down there to kind of like, gifted illusion that it's not so around. So generally, the rule is when it comes to drawing your contra lines, trying not to exceed past, kind of like the area of your eyeballs. So like around here is good enough. Because if you bring it a little bit lower, what's gonna happen is it may look a little bit unnatural, because why would you have a shadow kind of like down here? Um, I hope that makes sense of this appliance for applies with blushing as well. So if you compare it to previously before I applied a product, I hope you can see a bit of a difference. So maybe I'll just go in with one more layer just to show you the effect. So don't go exceeding the nine. It, of course, depends on your products. Well, like, for example, this Zamesca one is very share, so I can go into another time. But if not, say you using like, um, for example, Dr Concealers or things like that Be very careful because they tend to be a lot more pigment. It s Oh, definitely. Maybe not going in twice. So I hope you can kind of see the difference. You know that I've applied the contract. I hope that helps a little bit, and I'm going to show you the other site. Using the powder is the same thing. I'm going to use this brush, but because his brushes a little bit wide. As you can see, I'm going to kind of hold it like that the entire time. So I'm kind of like squeezing it down so that you can give me that mind that I want. Um, so remember, you can manipulate the brush any way you want. By the way of holding it. You can even some people use, like a bobby pin and kind of just, like put it around brush. So you get that nice tip it, tip. So that's up to you. I just prefer to just hold it like that. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put the brush in tap tap. I remember You don't want too much product on your brush. It's always easier to build up. Eventually move. Then I'm going to point it like that. Take it and then just draw what I want the contrary to be, um for then those. What I will do is I actually won't use. This brush is a little bit big, so I'll show you how I'm going to do that later. Once I've set down where the powder is, I'm going to release the brush so he goes back to its normal shape, and then I just slowly just ended up. So that's a lot, Um, not a lot, but that's a little bit of dimension back to face. So as you can see this area now, especially when I turned my head like that, you're going to realize this kind of like a shot of the So that's kind of what contouring does. It helps to kind of make the Facebook a little bit skinny at because you're also adding shadows down here. If I hope that makes sense. So how do I do the nose area? So foot and nose area, I'm going to use a more precise brush, so I will just go back to using pencil brush from sick matter. One day I used to conceal it. Just wipe it off over like a tissue and all that to get rid of all the concealers and anything and to kind of like fluff up the brush bristles again and then just a little bit into the powder. So same idea. I'm going to draw a line down like that. Now, if a powder it's not forgiving So you have to really be precise on where you put the powder . So I'm just gonna give a little bit more shadow here. I won't go all the way here. And then I'm just gonna cut it like that, Just a very slight one. And then if you feel like, oh, it's looking a little bit harsh, For example, you can go back a few powder brush just slightly dust it, or you can use to brush that you use for your thing for your contra producing just lightly kind of night blended. So I hope that kind of helps you out in terms off contouring. So for contouring, for me personally, I generally feel that using creams will make things a lot easier in the sense that it's a lot more forgiving. And if let's say, you know, you do something wrong, you can always go back because nothing has been set yet, whereas wearing comes to the powder site, you need to be very precise with your application, and you need to make sure its blend of out properly. Um, so that could be something that you know. You need to consider that say you're a makeup beginner. So now that we've added back the shadows to our face and a little bit more dimension, we're gonna go in with blush. 14. Demo of blush: Now we're gonna move on to adding blusher. So bless you really helps to add color in life to the phase, in my opinion, because sometimes when we are pale, we generally look a lot more. Tie it and let master. So usually when I get a bit of blush at a bit of my color to your cheeks, it tends to give you a little bit more of a life. Lee appearance. Eso Same thing. I'm gonna do a cream on this sign and then powder and decide to show you now the application, a PAC off blush really depends on your face shape and kind of like the look you want to go for. So, for example, for me, I have an oval face shape. So generally I would just go it from here up to my cheekbones. But if let's say you have round phase, you know, and things like that, it really did. The application of Flash will differ, but so, like, let's say you have a round face. For example, you don't generally want to apply blush at apples of your cheeks because that's gonna kind of emphasize the fact that your faces round so Usually when it comes to light round faces, we'd like to go along the cheekbones downwards. And if that's so, you have a long face. You kind of, you know, like a longer face. You kind of want to put more on the apples of the cheeks and so on. So for me, I'm just gonna show you how I apply my blush. But if you want to find out more details in as to how you should apply blusher for your face shape. There's a lot off. Resource is online, like I've got gold it before when I was starting out and I do find it was helpful. But I think ultimately those chants are like a guide mind it really depends on what you like on your face and how it makes you feel. So if that's a you know, you have a round face and you love how you look with Apple's assort with blushing your apples of your cheeks, Then go ahead. It's just really kind of like, what makes you feel good? But, um, so now let's move on to me, applying to blush just to show you so far, liquid or cream, the only one I can find in my collection is this one? It's from Correa. Um, it's I don't know how to pronounce the brand name. I got in and I was in Seoul. So it looks like that it looks like a nail polish like that s so I'm just gonna take a little bit and dot it on my cheeks. So I like to generally go like that. I feel it might be a little bit too much, but it's okay, cause a beauty Lunda generally will make it. So I follow Kind of like I don't know if you can see I don't go beyond Iris off my I And then I go along my cheekbone all the way here. So the guy mine is generally like that. So if that's a this is my RS right like that, you should try not to apply. Or you should avoid a plane blush beat beyond this mine because what could happens is gifted illusions that your face is being pulled down and you don't want that. So after I applied, I'm just gonna take the beautyblender pounds it. It's a very natural finish, so I don't know if you actually can't manage to see it on the camera itself. But on my mirror, I definitely can see that. You know, it adds a little bit of color to my cheeks. So this is without this is with my hope. You can tell, Um, I don't like to put too much blush because I feel that that can also lead to, um, you know, me looking a little bit older, so I think this lady is good enough. But I think for demonstration purposes, I'll just put a little bit more so that you can see on camera. Same thing, just thought a little bit here and then pounds of a beautyblender. So I don't know if you realized what kind of if you keep pouncing that part with even inevitably kind of goal to its different. So that's why I'm trying to endure product a little bit further behind so that you know, when you blend it, it moves a little bit in front, but it still doesn't pull your face down. So that's that's it for blush, for this side for cream. And then for this site for powder. I'm just gonna show you, using one off like my favorite simple flushes, which is the Milani Luminoso blush. It's really one of the best, in my opinion. Same thing. I'm using the brush. Just make sure you, like, maybe dusted off on a towel or like a paper towel or cloth so that you don't kind of like mix the colors off your off the product. Same thing. Soil it into the brush, tap tap, and then remember where you put your brush fest is where the most product will be deposited , so I want it at the back, and then I slowly bring it down. Don't swipe it down too much, because then you also give the illusion that your faces being put down. And then once I feel like you know the product most of it has been applying, Ali will just go in circular motions to blend it. So if you want to kind of give a little bit more of a rosy effect, you can also take remaining off the brush. The blesh sorry and kind of just like go along your temples. So this is what I've learned from a makeup artist and deal, so they're saying like to kind of give that look You know, they kind of put a good of blush on your temples and a little bit on your nose. Um, but for me personally, that's I don't really like that. So I usually just put it on my cheek, so I hope you can see the blush, so it's a very natural application, but at the same time, I feel that it really adds a bit more kind of like life to the skin. So that's how I apply. Blush is to just remember, don't go beyond your iris and don't go too low because you don't want the blush to pull your face down. So now let's move on to the last one we just highlighted. 15. Demo of highlighter: So when it comes to highlighting, I know recently the highlighting trend has become really, really popular and, you know, different kinds of highlighters became It went onto the market like really glittery shiny ones, as feels like dual chrome ones, you know, and things like that. But presently for me, I like my highlight to be really natural. I used to be really all about the bling, any kind, like the kind that you can see from a distance. But then I realized as I grew over the and, you know, it's just not some look that I'm planning to go for. So for me today, from my demonstration purposes, I'm going to use two of my favorite highlight ISS. They add generally really natural, but they still at you know, enough glow in the minahasa teacher the skin to make it look healthy and to, you know, kind of lift the area that you apply. So when it comes to creams, I'm going to use this one, which is dio make it forever ultra HD. This is really, really kind of like light weight. It feels really good on the skin. It's like you didn't apply anything but at the same time, it gives a good amount of glow. So what I'm gonna do is I dispense it a little bit on my hand at the back of my hand like that. I'm gonna take my fingers to kind of apply where I want it. So for me for, um, highlight, you should just put a little bit at the top of my cheekbones here. And then what I also like to do is I like to put it at my tear duct area. So I'm here. This is assuming I don't do any I make up for that day. Sometimes I just used like, a little mascara. And I'm good to go for what good things like that. So this is where I would inform. So once that's done, I'm gonna take again the beautyblender, take the point it site this time and just pounds it on the skin gently. Same thing you don't want to bring it to far in, because if you do that, it's a little it'll make you look a little bit, I suppose, like oily because, you know, this is kind of when most setem Stephen production happened, so you don't kind of want to bring it all the way down. Erin behind, like a kind of lifts the area. It gives the illusion off. Lift it, Um, like it kind of gives the illusion it's lifted. So it's a bit strange to have it in, like, this area here. So I just put a little bit on the top of my cheekbones, and then I'm just gonna blend this one. He is. Well, it's a very subtle highlight of which I love, so I don't know if the camera can pick it up, but, um, this is how it looks like applying. So this is the liquid highlighter. I can't see it on my mirror of I don't know if the camera can pick it up, so I hope you'll be able to see it. So doesn't really nice sheen in this area here in here. So it kind of like brightens up that area. Um, and now I'm gonna show you the powder side. So for powder, I think personally, one of my favorite highlight is, um, has been discontinued, sadly, but, you know, I really like it. So I'm just gonna use it for demonstration. So I apologize if you can find it in the market anymore. But it's d essence pure Newt. Highlight up. So this is is a really natural highlighted. That works really, really well. I feel that sometimes go to re highlighters can emphasize your skin texture. So this one I feel just at the right amount off luminosity. Now when it comes to brushes will highlight it. I think you could definitely use the same one like that. You just kind of point to brush like So you see, this is the tape it side, right? If he used decide Kia the tip of it, you just go into the highlighter and go here that can what? They're also specific. Um highlight a brushes like for example, this one. This is the sick mom Tapit highlighter. You can use it as well. It gives you enough precision to go that so it's really up to you. But I'm going to just use the same brush with demonstrations. Remember, if this is your brush, right, this is the tip. I'm going to turn to brush this side, go into my highlighter attack and then I will just apply on the same area. So the top of my cheek bones. Very light. Precious is enough. You don't need to put a lot of pressure and then just brush a little bit here. And if you want to, you can't put a little bit at the nose area as well. So this kind of gifts idea that this part is lifted to kind of gives the illusion of a shopping knows. I hope you can kind of see the highlighter. Well, yet you definitely can. But I want you to also take note that highlight as they will emphasize the texture off your skin. So, for example, here you can see it. Is pimples really being emphasized right now because of the highlight s. So just take that into consideration when you apply. Highlight us because I feel like, you know, sometimes the trends they just really go that pile on the highlighters and all that. But then sometimes our skin doesn't call for it. Oh, sometimes, you know, it's not the best way of applying for us personally. So really trial and error figure out what looks good on you s O, for example, Actually, when I'm breaking out really badly out go for really natural highlighters like this one, or I won't even put a highlighted because sometimes it's like really just putting a spotlight onto the uneven skin textures that I have currently all the pimples. So, like, for example, this one. If I put highlighted up here, it's going to kind of like bring it out even more so just kind of, you know, keep that into consideration as well. 16. Demo Setting makeup : So now that we have highlight on our faces basically done So we have the foundation, we have concealer. Then we have bronzer corn to a blusher and then highlighter What? But for this site, because I've used creams I actually has. I have not set this site with powder, so I'm just going to do that very quickly now. So remember, if you're going to use all creams, the creams asked sitting on your face. But they can technically move around TRO today. So you don't want that to happen. So you want to set up the powder. So the same thing. I'm gonna use the same powder, just dump a little bit into the cap. I used that same brush that I've been using for demonstration purposes. Dip it in and just slightly dusted over Mufti's so that everything that you've applied will not slip and slide because powder kind of helps to creams to stain, please. There you go. So this is how a base routine is usually done. Now, sometimes some people may feel like oh, you know, the powders and all that. It makes the skin look a little bit powdery. If that makes sense, especially if you have dry skin. So the last step you can go for after this is to set it with a makeup setting spray. So there are many, many different kinds out in the market. The most popular would probably be like the urban decay ones. I currently don't have any of my collection because I really just did like a major declutter. But you can take those fixing sprays, you know, just sprayed all over your face and that spring what kind of help? Melt everything down and hold it better as well. So there are different setting sprays for different skin times, like they at once for oily skin to help you control your Stephen production. And then they're the kinds with dry skin to kind of provide moisture and hydration to the skin. So make sure you're buying the proper wetness well, And then, um, I think, yeah, that's about it. So from me, I don't use setting sprays because I think now my makeup routines are generally really, really simple in the morning. But that's something to take note office Well, so I hope the demonstrations off the creams and powders and a different steps helped you. And I really hope that this class taught you something new. So that's it for me for now. And I'll see you soon. 17. Demo of concealer for pimples: going to show you how to cover up my under eye circles. This was the pimples using consulate. Now in general, they are different things to cover, so I will generally use to concealers. But of course, if it's for personal use, you know you can generally just use one. Conceal it. It's up to you now. When it comes to pimples, like for example, mind they are slightly raised. I don't know if you can tell right now. I went traveling and have come back. It basically just, you know, has a lot of pimples. So, like, for example, this one I hope you can kind of see, it's really bumpy Now. Concealers can only kind of like camouflage directness off the pimple, but it will not be able to kind of like fix the texture of the pimple as well as the bumps off the pimple. So that's something to take note off, you know, and piling on tons of concealer on top of it doesn't help because it's just going to make it a lot. Colombia. Now, one thing I noticed about pimples is usually pimples tend to be a little bit dry. So if I put concealer on my pimple and and throughout the day, I'm gonna realize this kind of like a crust around my pimple just because of the pimple area. I don't know why the skin tends to be about dry up, so that's something to keep in mind. So because of that, I would recommend using a consular that, you know you really like. It has good hydration properties, and he has good enough coverage for you. So when it comes to my pimples, I generally like to use a pot consular. So I'm going to use the Norris concealer. This one is D self met. Complete concealer right here. So I like to use part concealers for covering up. Pimples are only like dark spots and then liquid concealers under my eyes. The reason is because I find that liquid concealers Ah, lot more fluid and a lot more hydrating for me personally, because my under eye area tends to be really dry. So if I put cream sorry. If I use like pot concealers underneath my eyes, I find that ages emphasizes the minds a lot more for me personally. So I'm going to show you how to cover up the response office. So because you're kind of using it on pimples, you don't really want to, you know, put your finger in and then kind of like who that there and then dip it. And again, that's kind of like contaminating your product. So what I generally like to do is I like to use a pencil brush. So this is actually a Sigma pencil brush, which is actually used for kind of like precise application of eye shadow on your islets. But it can also work really well for applying concealer. So, as you can see, it's like pointed tip very, very good for kind of like, you know, sport concealing. So that's what we're going to do. All right, so I already have my pencil brush and my consulate, So I'm going to dip the brush into the consulate just a little bit swollen around to get enough product. You don't really want to double dip again because you're contaminating your product. So take enough to kind of like cover all the spots that you need, so swelling around helps and then, you know, just used like pressure to kind of going to the spot. So it's not so heavy on one spot, so I'm gonna take it here. I have this one really bad here. Here. So I'm just using really light pressure here because I don't want to put all the concealer onto these. I have one here and then this Massive one. What? We're here for us. You can see And then a mess of one. So here I'm gonna put a little bit more pressure because I'm running out of concealer already. And then if there's any extras, I'll just go back to the spots. I feel like I need coverage. And then if there's any left on your brush, don't worry too much about it, because sometimes when you blend it, it can kind of like, sure out. So then you can take whatever is remaining on your brush and go for it on second time. Now, if you really one good coverage, I would recommend using the blending brush instead of a beautyblender because, like I said, beautyblender because it's damp, it tends to kind of like diet your product in one way. So it makes it a lot. Not a lot, but it makes it sure s so I'm just gonna go back to my buff and brush the one I use previously, and I'm just gonna pounds the concealer onto my skin to blend it. Don't swipe, because then you have kind of like shifting the consul already. Just gently tap it in until it's blended. So let you can see for this one if I bring it. Maybe if I come closer to you, it does reduce the richness off the pimple. But at the same time that they're bump, you can really remove like the texture. So the texture is still kind of going to be that it's just something to take note off. So this is decided that I've done with the brush. I'm going to show you to the other side, just with the beautyblender might as well. So for spot concealing, I would recommend using the tip of the beautyblender so it gives you a lot more control. So just pounds it same theory in general, I find that a beautyblender is a lot quicker, and it also kind of produces a more natural finish. So that's something to take note off. If I'm going to just do it for myself personally when I go out. I used a beautyblender because it's just a lot faster, A lot more convenient. But of course, if you know you're doing, like, a makeup on clients or you want to do, like, make it for a really big event, then maybe using the brush could give you a little bit more coverage. So as you can see, this is just one way of concealer, and the richness of the pimples have been, you know, pretty much reduced. But because I have a little bit off concealer left on my brush, I'm just gonna go back a second time. Um, just to kind of, you know, feel filling anymore off the pimples. I feel that still sticking out. And then, of course, if you have spares, you can also go along the sites of you knows. So I It really depends. Sometimes I use my under eye concealer because I've excess and I don't really want to waste it. I will go here. This area here, for us, women in general, our area around our nose tends to be a little a little bit read. So I like to conceal that area. Yes, well, and then, since the beauty menace in my hands. I'm just going to use that pound step in. So I hope you can kind of see that. You know, the pimples are not as obvious, and the richness has been reduced now. 18. Concealer for dark undereye : Now I'm going to show you how it cover up my duck under eye circles. So, as you can tell, obviously from the camera, my dark under eye circles up pretty bad. Um, they I don't know, no matter how much asleep, it just doesn't get rid of it. So concealers alone will not be able to kind of like, how would you say, like, completely cover up as you can tell, Like the color off my dark under eyes. Maybe I was so you can kind of see my dark under eye circles in all its glory. So as you can tell, it's kind of like a shade of publish brown. So what I like to dio is I like to use a color correct office because when I started, I used to pile on my tons of concealer. I was that Why is that? You know, that line still being able to be seen after using all that concealer and the truth is because consular et's coverage, but it doesn't kind of like eliminate the tones of your dark under eye circles. So this is my color correctives. Come in. I love this one. This is the bye bye under I from it cosmetics. I find that the shade off this really, really helps to kind off eliminate the dark tones off my under eyes. I'm just going to take a little bit at using my finger, and I'm just gonna put a little bit underneath the eyes. So I'm just gonna show on this site so you can kind of see the difference. The corrective makes by itself, remember, correct is what with the color wheel. So if your skin is if you're dark under eye circles is roughly about publish bluish. You should go for something that's opposite, which is usually around orange red. Um, but for us, because we're quite fair, all for me, I'm quite Ferris. So usually what I'll do is I'll take something like that. A PCI shade would work perfectly fine and then off course. If you're fairer than me, you're gonna go with light salmon. And then, if you're darker than me, you can go for something like a doctor. Salmon, or even a little bit off like an orange, conceal a as well. So I don't know if you can tell just a little dab, like a little bit off car alone. Um, you can kind of see, like the tones off the under eye has been intimated, Eliminated quite a bit. So I'm going to do it for the other side when it comes to working with the under eyes. I personally like to use my fingers because I feel that the warmth of my fingers really help to kind of my blend of products in. I apologize for the state of my nails. Please don't, um, look at it if you can. And then now what I'm gonna do is I'm going to use a liquid concealer. So for me, like I mentioned just now, I like to use liquid. Montella's underneath the eyes. I find the is easier to blend a little bit more hydrating for me as well. So my favorite one is the Maybelline fit me. Sorry, it's the other way. It's a really affordable one from the drug store, and I really like it. So it comes to the door food applicator. So that's why I find it's like, really convenient to just slap want to your face, you know, especially if you're rushing in the mornings and then lend it out. So for me. I know a lot of people like to put like, a lot of under eye concealer, but from me, I find that because off the wrinkles underneath my eyes, if I put too much, it's just going to bunch up into those lines. So I think like tree little lines like that is good enough for me like that. So if you want to a swell, you can take a little bit of the highlight it I mean, the Consuela and kind of like, you know, this is what I like to do. So I just like to draw a little bit of a line, um, down beside down the nose. But that's completely optional. So I'm not going to blend it using a beautyblender. And then, if you want to, you can take a little bit and just kind of my go over your eyelids as well. So if you don't have, I should apartment the consulate itself can kind of look as a base. Oh, you know, if you just kind of want to even out your islets because, for example, my islets tend to be a little bit veiny, so I just kind of like to put a little bit consular over there. Any leftovers just to kind of, like, make the eyes look a little bit brighter, and then I'll just pinch my beautyblender and then just kind of blend this concealer light out. So if I didn't actually cover the sides of my nose, I would actually put a little bit of legal concealer. That too. But since I didn't have the cream concealer, I'm good. And don't forget about this area. Many people tend to forget that, but these actually where it's the doctors. So because of the shadows, So you kind of want to make sure you're found your consider goes in there and there we go. So I'm gonna zoom you out now. So as you can see right now, my face has foundation and concealer. I've covered up my pimples as well as my duck under eye circles. Of course, you can kind of still see it. It's not gonna be completely eradicated. I I personally feel that, you know, um, makeup shouldn't look ok for me from my personal preference. I don't really like heavy makeup currently, so I'm fine with my pimple still showing a little bit all my under eyes showing a little bit. It's very difficult for me to kind of like cover it, everything fully. The reason is because that's going to need quite a few. Lay is, and you need really high coverage products. And, um, I just kind of want you to take note that whenever you see something on the cameras, like YouTube, tutorials and all that, those are under professional lighting. And you know, in general, if you use instagram makeup tutorials and you walk out in, you know, normal situations, it's going to be extremely, extremely heavy. So if you're going to, you know, do make up for, like, a normal day basis, to go to work or to go for events for your own good, for certain events or things like that, just keep in mind that you know it's not necessary to completely cover up everything. But that's my opinion. So as you can kind of see, right now, my face is looking a little bit flat. That's because foundation evens out everything and concealers as well. So basically my skin kind of legs dimension, as you can tell. So now I'm going to show you how to kind of like at a liberal dimension, but using corn twist blush is bronzes as well as a little bit of highlighter. 19. NEW: Prevent Patchy Foundation: When it comes to the face, there are a few common problems. Most of it probably coming from you constantly in your foundation does. If you have oily skin like me, you probably realize that halfway through today, sometimes to foundation tends to become a bit patchy and streaky on your face. This is especially so if you get expressive, exceptionally oiling your cheeks like ideo. So for me, whenever I get patchy, I realized it would look somewhere here and they start to separate, and I start to see, like, really kind of like separate patches, and it just doesn't look very pleasant. So to prevent that from happening, the very first thing that you need to make sure you do if you have oily skin is to moisturize. Now I know some people they think that, you know, hydration and moisturizing seems a little bit counterproductive all counter intuitive if you have oily skin. But the thing is, if you do not moisturize the skin before you apply makeup, your skin may feel dry and therefore it might overproduce e bem To compensate for that dryness and your face will just get more oily and most Obama interact with your foundation , causing it to be patchy and streaky. So make sure you hydrate your skin using any kind of moisturizer that you like and, you know, preferably one that's a bit lighter so that it's not too m Olean and your foundation isn't slipping and sliding all over your face. But to hydrate your skin. A Steph manifesting you should do. The second thing is to prevent the interaction between the Seebohm and the foundation. You want to use a primer. Any prima's will look for me personally because I've oily skin. I like to use a primal like the makeup forever. It's moves the skin out and it kind of ex at an additional barrier. So imagine if this is your skin right, and that's a you put a primer on top of it and then, finally, a foundation. So for the Seebohm to interact with the foundation, they kind of have to go through the layer of the primary eso. This will take a much longer time and therefore your make up a last a lot longer and look more flawless throughout the day. 20. NEW: Prevent Dry Patches: if you have dry skin. So if you on the other end of the spectrum, you probably realized throughout the day instead of your foundation kind of becoming streaky, it tends to then cling onto the dry patches you have on your skin. So for me, because I do avoid skin. But I do have dry patches around my nose. I do notice that you know concealer tends to just creep in there, and it kind of together throughout the date. Now to do this or to prevent this from happening, there are a few ways, so the very 1st 1 is again. If you have dry skin mixture, your skin is sufficiently hydrated before you apply your foundation. Very important step. Next thing is you again want to apply a primary now, Um, I use this because I have oily skin, but for people with dry skin may be fine. Prime A. That's very hydrating. Things like the L A mask, a hydra veil or the back of first, like crime A and the backlight primer. They all worked really, really well, so they at luminosity to this game as well as at an extra kind of like layer of hydration, so your skin isn't too dry, and therefore the foundation one really kind of go into the dry patches and cling onto it. I hope that makes sense. The other way issue can makes your foundation with a little bit of Dr Facial oil. So, for example, my favorite one would be this one, which is the the nooks. I believe it's pronounced multipurpose dry oil. So when I used to do make up for clients, and if they have dry skin, why don't do is I'll just put a little bit of the dry facial oil with the foundation on back of my hand, and I warm it up before I try it on the face. So this really helps to make sure the foundation is in too cakey or dry, and the transit of it clinging onto dry patches will be lower throughout the day or throughout the photo shoot that we're doing for the clients and things like that. So that is one things. To make sure your skin hydrated. Get yourself a good hydrating prime. A. You can makes an oil with the foundation and then for application instead of using a buffing brush something like that. You can use a depth beautyblender like this if you imagine a five a dry patch here, okay? And I'm going in circular motions like so the foundation is kind of going over the dry patch in and under the dry patch in an over and under. Does that make sense? So when the circular motions off the brush, a kind of makes it a little bit more difficult to blend, especially for people with dry skin. So a damn beautyblender, instead, off buffing the foundation and kind of lifting the dry patches over and over in the circular motions that you usually do it buffing brushes a beauty blend. It kind of helps you to press the product down so you're not lifting the dry patches up as you applied a foundation. I hope that makes sense. So if you think about it, your foundation is nicely sitting onto the dry patches instead of being going kind of like going under and in. And so one, and so far I hope that makes sense. So pressing it in and with the damn beautyblender it. It's a little bit of moisture and thins the foundation out just a little bit. So it is also kind of prevents the cake Eunice or the I'm clinging onto the dry patches. 21. NEW: Prevent Oxidation Of Foundation: the next thing could be your foundation looks great before you leave the house and then halfway throughout the day, you're going to realize the foundations just no longer the same shade assed when you first applied. Now, this could be because your foundation is oxidizing occid. Ization of foundation could happen for various reasons, but most majority of it will probably be interaction with the sun. I mean, the heat and humidity off your environment. It can also be interaction of the Seebohm that's produced on your face. Now for this, it's very difficult to prevent oxidation off foundation. So what we need to do is we need to make sure we choose to proper she ate before we even get started. So to do that, I always recommend make sure that you test your foundation on your jawline and all the way down your neck. So this make sure that your foundation matches unite, and after you blend it out a little bit, don't just buy right there. You're going to walk around the store only better. Walk outside and come back into the stall about 15 10 to 15 minutes later, and then you're going to take a look at a shade of foundation. Now, if the foundation is the same color, then that's perfect. That's the perfect shape for you. But if the foundation has went to a doctor shape, for example, that's when you know you probably need to go one shade lighter. So when it oxidizes will probably be a matches the rest of your body. I hope that makes sense, So choosing the shade of foundation is very, very important, and you need to take note off oxidation. 22. NEW: Prevent Undereye Concealer Creasing: And of course, we also have the issues of under I consulates creasing. So if you like, If you're like me and you have a lot of fine lines underneath your eyes, chances are you're going to realize the consulate tends to creep into those lines throughout the day. The best. The best way to prevent this from happening. ISS Festival Making sure that your islets are sufficiently hydrated, so make sure you use an eye cream before you apply concealer. Now I creams can help, because firstly, they kind of plump up the eye under eye area so that the fine lines become less noticeable . So imagine if you put the you know, the eye cream on and it kind of gets more hydrated. It gets more plump, right? So all the fine lines, I think of the fine lines. It's kind of like valleys right. They kind of puffed up a little bit, so it's not as deep if that makes sense. So when you apply your concealer on top of it, the chances off the concerts were all the way into the lines would be much lower, so that's the best thing. The second thing is after you put your concealer onto a well hydrated under I skin. The chances of the consulate clinging onto dry patches are the fine lines will be a lot lower. After applying concealer, you're going to immediately set it with a thin layer of translucent powder. So I like to use my beautyblender. Actually now, trances and powder basically will be your best friend. It helps to hold down the cream concealer, auto liquid concealer, preventing it from moving around. If you don't set your concealer, what happens is trapped. The date your constants was sleeping slide and chances are they will find areas that they can gather in. So basically out find lines. Right? So imagine if this is your fine minds zoomed in like, you know, 100% or something like that. So the constants move around, then you're kind of settle into the fine lines, just gathering all there, and he makes it look a lot more obvious. So that's what we're trying to prevent when it comes decreasing. So setting it and making sure your under eyes a thoroughly hydrated is the key 23. NEW: Prevent Dark Circles Peeking Through: then we move on to your under eye concealer. It's so for me. I have pretty dark under eye circles, and I realized that throughout the day my doctor under eye circles become a lot more noticeable. This is because if I just rely on concealer, my concealer usually kind of slips and slides and, you know, it just fades, trapped the day and that therefore the coverage decreases over time. So what I like to do to make sure that my under eye SoCal stay s kind of like covered as much as possible would be to not just rely on concealer, But I also have to use a color corrector.

NEW : Prevent Blush Fading: we move on to blush, so Blash is probably the best product that would fade. The reason is because blush powder blush that you apply on your cheeks usually will be the last product you apply. Or maybe the second loss if you apply highlighter after that. But what you want to think about is after you apply powder blush. Usually after you put your foundation your concealer, you set your entire phase you go of powder bronzer powder contra. Then you usually apply your apply your powder blush. So what happens is the powder blush is sitting on many different other layers of powder, so it doesn't have a lot to cling onto.
