Makeup Tutorial Where To Start?! What Makeup Products Should I Buy As A Beginners?


hi my name is Melissa van Dijk and I’m a
professional makeup artist and today I’m going to show you if you’re new to
makeup but you have no idea where you should start the basic information so
you need to know and also step by step how you can reach a beautiful and
natural looking eye makeup look and also with the rest of your base so I’m going
to explain it first what it’s important to know and then later on I will show
you a really natural makeup look which you can do at home when you’re just new
to makeup so I’m just going to share a quick story with you guys what happened
to me when I first started off with makeup and I just hope that you can
learn from my situation and also from my experience because this is why I wanted
to share it with you so back then when I just started high school I used to do my
makeup every day because I had such a bad skin that I just felt so
uncomfortable going outside without makeup so what I did is I used a lot of
products from my mother’s back and a few of them were also my own which were
drugstore brands but back then I only used to have a tinted moisturizer and
eyeliner pencil for my waterline of mascara and that’s it later on I got
also a pink eyeshadow it was like a full-on bold pink eyeshadow which I used
to apply on my mobile eyelid so what I did is I had no idea back then
that foundations would exist which means that they have a little bit more
coverage than attentive host riser so what I did is I used way too much
moisturizer like the tinted one and I applied it to my skin as I would do with
the foundation because I just wanted to get a full coverage like foundation but
I only did it with a tinted moisturizer which means that I had such a thick
layer on my face so that my pimples and breakouts will work covered up so this
was the biggest mistake that I could do and
skin just couldn’t breathe through it because I used way too much product so
this is one thing that I just like to point out so a tinted moisturizer isn’t
a foundation so a tinted moisturizer is something that you apply with your hands
are also with a brush but it’s a sheer coverage so do not use it as a
foundation because then you have to layer it way too much and you are just
doing a waste of product and it’s not good for your skin so this is also why
my skin couldn’t really recover from it I thought it would be a good idea but it
was like the opposite it just gets worse and then I also used to have a black
eyeliner pencil which are popped on my lower waterline a little bit of mascara
and later on as I said a pink eyeshadow which I put on my mobile lid and also a
bit above but I had no idea that you should use a brush to blend it so you
can imagine how this like how this was looking like so I just popped it on with
my finger and all the edges were standing out so it wasn’t really blended
and it just like looked worse it was horrible and I don’t want to remember
this part of my life because I just regret it and I had no idea and also no
knowledge about makeup now I have knowledge about makeup and also know how
you should apply and also how you should use the different products so that’s
what I’m going to show you today in this video this was not a short story and now
I just like to share with you a few informations so before you are buying
any makeup or if you have already bought it and just look after these points if
you have analyzed your skin at first and also the other points which I’m going to
list now later on such first you need to know what skin type you have and to find
out what can help you have you just need to look at your pros so pause everyone
has pores in their face and some of them are very small some of them are larger
pores and some of them you can’t really tell because it isn’t the changement on
your face so this will tell you already a lot of how well which skin type you
have I for example have a combination skin
which means that when I’m looking close to the mirror my t-zone which is my
forehead my nose area from this part right here and my chin which means that
this area has larger pores and then when it comes to the cheeks there’s a little
bit drier and you have smaller pores this is a combination skin so if you can
find this on your face then the chance is like a huge chance that you have
combination skin because this is what your face tells you if you have small
pores around your whole face then you have a dry skin because the moisture
which your face needs could just get sucked into the skin and you can’t
really see any moisture on the top of your skin because your body just needs
it inside so this is why you have smaller post if you have an oily skin
then you have larger pores around your whole face and you can also see that
during the day that you are getting oily so that it’s shiny don’t forget that oil
isn’t sweat so if you’re sweating did this doesn’t mean that you have an oily
skin because sweat is water and oil is oil it’s completely different it’s also
important that if you are washing your face in the morning and do not really
touch it during the day and then later on when you are getting ready if you are
going to bed then just have a look at your skin if it’s shiny on your forehead
area nose area chin area you have a combination skin if your whole face has
like a shine on it then you have an oily skin and if you have like a normal skin
and you can’t really tell if it’s oily or not then it it’s a good chance that
you have a normal skin which means that you don’t have to worry about anything
you have enough moisture and you have enough oils on your face and if you have
a dry skin then can also get some dry patches which means that it can also
flake so that your skin will flake and it feels very dry and kind of like a
stretching mask so that you can’t really move your face around then you have a
drier skin so this is important do you know what skin type you have then you
need to check what it says on the product so when it comes to the products
of makeup you have tons of them which are on the market so
just look out for if you know your skin type that you’re also taking to write
products which means that it’s a mattifying foundation it’s great for
oily skin it isn’t a good foundation if you have dry skin if you have a normal
skin you can go with basically everything because your skin Willie
doesn’t mind on what you are going to use so you have no problems with it
so this is now the basic information which I can point out when it comes to
your skin type read what it says on a product and also analyze your face then
you need to know that if you are going to check for your foundation tinted
moisturizer and soever then you need to find a natural lightening if you can
find natural lightening then do a matching test from your cheek area
towards your chin area and also neck area this part right here if this
foundation shade is matching with the rest of this area then it’s your shade
and if you are testing it in natural light and you’re 100% right with the
shade because if you have more like a yellowish lightening or very cool
lightening then this can also just make a fake shade and then when you are
walking outside and it’s too light or too dark so just keep this in mind it’s
always useful to just pick up some samples when you are going to the
counter and your aren’t sure if you should test this product or not go with
the sample because you can try it out and if you aren’t happy with the product
and you haven’t wasted your money on that specific product because some of
them can be really expensive so now when it comes to brushes I have my personal
brushes which I prefer and I can’t live without them so I’m going to share it
with you and these aren’t that many brushes it just gives you a really nice
at also like with these brushes you can use them for different ways on how you
can apply your makeup and also a sponge so it’s also important that every time
you have done your makeup please clean your brushes the same day because then
you’re happy and you can’t really get any reactions with your skin because you
have clean brushes every time you are applying your makeup which is so
important can also get a really nice routine from
your daily routine so you just need to pick this up and do it every day so that
you’re getting used to it and then it gets pricked up by the time so I have
now my brush right here and the first brush which I personally find it so
important is a big fluffy powder brush so if you’re going to set your face with
some powder that say you have an oily skin and you are getting shiny during
the day this brush is so handy so if you have a big fluffy brush to set your
makeup so that it will be locked in during the day this is a good
opportunity and also we’d spend some money on a brush like this a medium
fluffy brush this is a face brush – and this is for the application of blush and
you can apply your blush with it but you also can do later on if you are getting
used to make up doing some contouring or bronzing with this brush so it isn’t
only for one thing you can use such a brush for like a lot of different ways
so you don’t only have to use it for blush then a foundation brush when it
comes to the foundation blush then you can choose between foundation brush or a
sponge this isn’t the Beauty Blender this is a $5 sponge from Target so it
doesn’t always mean that you need to take a Beauty Blender because they are
so expensive so if I would go with a brush or a sponge I personally would use
both but when I’m imagining that I’m just starting off with makeup then I
would go for the sponge why because the sponge just gives you the perfect amount
of product which you need on your face it gives you also a little bit more
coverage as a brush and she can’t really get any like lines with it so you just
need to dab it onto the skin and you need to get used to the motion that you
are dabbing all the time sometimes and also in the beginning you might do like
this because you aren’t used to the motion but later on when you are
repeating it every day or nearly every day
up to you when you’re going to use some makeup then you just are going to do
this and this will be just your normal routine and you don’t have to worry or
think about what you’re going to do because the dabbing motion is now a
routine of yours so with a brush if you prefer brush then I would recommend
taking a rounded brush which is very stiff so which means that you have a lot
of little hairs on it and it isn’t like a fluffy brush so with this product for
example if you with this if you would use such a brush for your foundation
we’ll get some lights because it’s too fluffy for foundation and if you want to
pack on some product because it’s a dense brush the product won’t go inside
the brush because it’s a little bit more dense which means that when you’re
applying it you’re also going to do some dabbing motion so that you are not going
to get any lines but you’re also going to swipe the brush a little bit so that
you can distribute the product on your face then I have this is fully right
here if you have big brows like I do and I’m going to tweeze them every month
then this is a handy brush for you you can also use it if you are going to
separate your lashes when it comes to mascara so this is for your brows and
mascara then you have a smaller brush like this this one is beautiful if you
want to set your concealer so when it comes to conceal and you want to set it
with powder with some powder then you can go right underneath the eyes and
also on top and you can also use this brush to highlight your cheekbones then
I have a dis blending brush right here and I have also this flat eyeshadow
brush right here when it comes to the eyes and you’re just starting off with
makeup these two brushes are the main brushes where I think that you will need
them because this is a nice brush where you can pack on some product and put it
on your mobile it and you can also just wet your brush a little bit so that you
can get the full pigmentation and with this brush you can just go into your
crease and also blend the shades into each other so these two brushes is a
must-have when you are doing your primary
then I have this brush right here this is a buffing brush which means that when
you are going to apply some concealer then you can bust the concealer into
your skin so that you are going to blend it into your skin or if you are
preferring this bunch you can go with the tip of the sponge and also do the
same thing so it doesn’t matter if you’re using the brush or the sponge
will do the same thing so I have no preference I am using always the both of
them so I’m just going back and forth with the sponge or with the brush to
blend the concealer into the skin then I have this angled brush right here which
is perfect to fill in your brows or to create a winged eyeliner so this brush
is also a really nice brush when it comes to multiple users so you can use
this brush for your brows if you want to fill them in to get also any sharp lines
you can also use it with some concealer underneath to curve out your brows or to
do your winged eyeliner and the last brush is a concealer brush which is a
flat brush so it depends on your concealer if you need to get it out of a
little pot then you can use the concealer brush to Pat it on your skin
and then use the sponge or this buffing brush to blend it back into the skin so
these are my brushes where I know that I can’t live without them and I just think
that you need to get them these aren’t many brushes but these are perfect for
so many uses so for the first step we are going to apply some moisturizer so
this is such an important step so you can’t really skip it because this is the
preparation before you’re applying any makeup product so that your skin just
will be nice and moisturized underneath your makeup and that it won’t dry out
because certain products and it also depends on your skin type then it can
try out your skin a little bit but when you’re using a moisturizer then it won’t
happen and it’s also less like the chances less that this will happen to
you that you have a dry skin later on so since I have a combinations
I’m going to tell you now what I’m going to use so when my skin is quite dry and
I can feel that it’s a little bit more drier as normal and my t-zone area is
also a little bit higher since I have a combination skin then I’m going to take
a moisturizer that’s a little bit richer when it comes to any oils so that this
can also repair the dryness and when I have my skin a little bit more on the
oily side then I’m going to use this moisturizer right here and I’m going to
just apply it very light handed on my face so that my skin is prepped when I’m
going to apply any makeup product so now that you know what skin type you have
you can just go for the perfect moisturizer for your skin type and apply
it to your face you can also use your fingers now before we are going to apply any
makeup products I just want to point out that if you have really dry lips and
you’re going to do your makeup then I would recommend doing while using a lip
balm at first and apply to your lips before you’re applying any makeup
because while you’re doing your makeup your lips can be really nice and
moisturize because you have used the lip balm directly and later on you can just
wipe it away and apply some lipstick on top so for the next step this is an
optional step our personal thing because when it comes to primer then it also
depends on your skin type and also what makeup you’re going for so if you are
going for a natural lightweight makeup you can totally skip the primer because
you have moisturizer underneath but if you have a really bad and oily skin then
I would suggest you to take a primer that’s oil controlling which are going
to apply on your face let it soak in and then you can move on to foundation so
because my skin isn’t that oily at the moment I’m going to skip this step
because the last product I can use why shouldn’t I apply a lot more products
that I don’t really need so if this makes sense if you have a really bad
oily skin and then you can go with an oil controlling primer but if you have a
normal and also a drier skin then you can also skip this step and also use a
little bit a little bit more of a heavier moisturizer before you’re going
to apply your foundation so this will balance it out and you totally can skip
this step but if you are going for heavy makeup then I would suggest you to take
a primer before you applying the rest of your makeup for the next up we are going
to move on to foundation so when it comes to foundation and it also should
suit your skin type which means if you have a dry skin type go for cream
products if you have a normal skin type choose whatever you want it’s totally up
to you and because this is the easiest skin tone you can have if you have a
combination skin you can have a little bit more of mattifying products and you
can also go for a little bit more shiny products which means that it depends
also on your skin if you have an oily day go for mattifying products
if you have a very dry day then go for a bit more creamy and also shiny
foundations like some of them tell you that it will give you a nice Sheen and
some of them will also tell you that it’s a mattifying foundation so go for
like choose one of them and just apply them as your day is going on then if you
have an oily skin and you have a really bad oily skin go for powder products
because there are some powder products that you can also apply as a foundation
so mineral powders which are tinted to your skin tone and you can also apply
them with a very well dense brush like a kabuki brush and apply it to your face
and it will give you a really nice base and it’s similar to a liquid foundation
just in a powder consistency and I personally like to use now a mattifying
foundation so I’m going with this one right here and I’m going to use on one
half of my face to brush and on the other sponge so that you can see how it
will look like when you are using the sponge and when you are using the brush
of course you need to get used to the routine and also the motions when you
are using both of them so I’m now going to use the brush on this side and I have
used a little bit of product on the brush and I’m going to spread it out a
tiny bit and also my forehead and when it comes to brush I personally like to
swipe the product at first so that I can spread it out and then once I have
spread it out I’m going to dab it because this is a little bit more of a
dense brush I can dab it and also move the product a little bit around and it
won’t give me any lines and if you can and just blend everything also towards
your hairline so that you won’t see any difference between your hairline and
where the foundation has done so I’m using those circular motions
I know I’m going to dab it into the skin and also never forget your neck so if
you have also faked add and match the rest of your body with your face but if
you are having the perfect shade then just blend it also a little bit who
what’s your neck otherwise you will have a sharp line when you will II can see
that the foundation has stopped so with the brush you can also do some dabbing
motions so that the lines which will appear if you are swiping the product a
little bit around and then it will disappear and the foundation will also
melt in with your skin I’m using the sponge and as you can see I have some
product on a sponge which I’m going to depth on my face also on my nose and
because this is such a large sponge I just can dab it on top and I can move
the product a little bit around but it is a little bit quicker than the brush
well most of the people tell me that I can’t see also why because you’re just
dabbing the product into the skin but I personally find that you just might need
a little bit more product than with a brush because you can’t really spread it
around because it’s directly melt in with your skin so you haven’t really
even spread it out yet with the sponge so this is why when it comes to using a
little bit more product but it can also give you a little bit more of a better
coverage but I like both am using both it just depends on the day and also on
the coverage you want to get with the sponge you can get a little bit more of
a higher coverage with the brush you can get a little bit more of a natural
coverage now for the next step we are moving on to concealer so I’m going to
choose this concealer right here and I also would recommend having a skin tone
concealer next to you and also and highlighting concealer which means that
I have a skin tone concealer right here where I’m going to get an
even converse above my eyes and also underneath my eyes but if you’re high if
you want to highlight some certain points like the bridge of your nose
they bit on your cheek and also so on then I would recommend using a lighter
skin tone concealer so this is a few shades lighter as you can see as my
actual skin tone and this just can brighten up any things where you just
feel uncomfortable with so I’m going to show you now how I’m going to use both
of them so at first I’m going to start off with this concealer right here this
is great if you want to cover up any blemishes like I have a few pimples
right here and I’m going to use the concealer to cover them up a concealer
it has a better coverage as a foundation which means that if you’re using a
concealer just on certain areas it’s a little bit more not really happy but the
coverage and a pigmentation is stronger than in a foundation so what I’m going
to do is I’m just going to pop this on this areas where I just need a little
bit more coverage because this is all about a natural makeup day so if you are
just starting off with makeup then this would be the perfect tutorial for you
because you just can keep it simple and learn how you can just connect with some
products and I’m also going to use the sponge to blend it into the skin and
this will give me a better coverage so that I don’t have to use a heavy
foundation so and now I’m going to use the
concealer under my eyes to brighten it up a little bit like the blueness which
I have under my eyes I’m just going to use a natural skin tone concealer I’m
going to use the sponge to blend it in this is one way how you can blend it
into the skin so as you can see it just brightens up this under-eye area even
though I have used the skin tone concealer but the coverage is a little
bit higher I’m on and I’m only going to use to consider where I will in need a
little bit more of an extra coverage so now I’m going to use on the other side
the brush so this is also what I explained to you now you can also use a
buffing brush to blend it into the skin and it will do the same thing as the
sponge just buff the concealer into your skin so
and now for my eyes I just like to get an even canvas so if you have a lot of
things going up here like the blue ones and the red ones and so on and just want
to get an even coverage I always suggest you to take the concealer and just apply
a little bit on top of course you can go with the sponge and blend it out well
with the brush so unless you can’t see now I have a little bit more of an even
coverage and then later on we can also move on to your well to the eyes and
then you will see that this will work the best now on the other side the same
of course if you have no concealer where you just need to grab it out of the pan
then I would go with the concealer brush with this one right here we are just
scooping it out of the pan and then just placing it where you will need some
extra coverage now with the brush so as you can see with the sponge or
with the brush it’s totally up to you what you prefer now from seeing this
video I just like both and I just feel that the sponge is a handy sponge and
also the brushes are really handy to apply your makeup so now we can move on
to set the concealer so now when it comes to setting the concealer I would
recommend using this method for every skin type so it doesn’t matter if you
have dry oily combination or normal I would suggest you to set your under-eye
area with some translucent powder and I’m going to use this fluffy brush from
earlier which I’ve shown you and you can use this for some powder and also
highlighter so I’m going to use this now to set my concealer so I’m just going to
dip into to translucent powder a bit and I’m also going to set the under-eye area
so what I’m going to do is I’m just double checking if it has increased
because if it has already creased and you will get some lines and they will be
there until the end of the day so now I’m just going to take the brush I’m
just swiping the product around take a little bit of powder I’m going to do the
same on the other side it’s always good to double check if it has already
creased or not because if it’s creasing which
means that the product has already moved into the fine lines then you can go back
in with a sponge or with the brush and just blend it back into the skin and
then place some powder on top so translucent powder is a really nice
product powder because it has no tint to it of course if you have a darker skin
tone you can also take some banana powder because this is a little bit more
yellowish and it also suits your skin so it just depends on what skin tone you
have now on top of my eye I’m going to blend it back in because that can also
create quite a lot because your eye is moving constantly
I’m also going to set this area on the other side so I hope you can see already
these slides this is what it has already creased and this is why I just like to
double check it before I’m going to apply any powder on top so that I won’t
have any lines on it now I have set the concealer on my eye area and now we can
move on to the brows so if you’re new to makeup I’m not going to do a full on
brow look because this is what this isn’t what this video is about so I’m
just going to keep everything very natural and I’m going slowly to give you
an idea of what you can do when you got these steps and then later on you can
improve yourself so what I’m going to do with my brows is I’m going to use a
tinted brow gel you can also get a clear brow drills it’s totally up to you if
you want to add a little bit more color to your brows or not so something like
if you have very blunt eyebrows then you can add a little bit more color with the
tinted brow gel so that they are a little bit more visible but still keep
it natural so I’m not going to fill in my brows with a brow pencil because this
is a little bit more of an advanced step but if you are new to makeup I just
would recommend doing it with a brow gel so what I’m going to do is I’m just
going to take the brow gel and brush the brow gel as I would do with the mascara
through my prop this will place them like I want them to
and it will also add a little bit more color to it so if you have a little bit
more of messy eyebrows and you don’t really know how you should lay them down
then I would go with a brow gel because it’s similar to hairspray it just will
make your eyebrow hair stay in place all day long so this will now dry down and
then it won’t move during the day please don’t forget that you have something on
your brows because otherwise you can also smear it around I’m not the same on
the other side so it’s like a little mascara won’t but it has like a brownish
shade to it for my eyebrows and you can get so many different shades so just
pick one that suits your eyebrow hairs I’m just going to get my eyebrow hairs
in place so and this is the only thing what I’m going to do when it comes to
your brows because it just should give you a little bit of an idea what you can
do and also that you get to know some products so for the more advanced look
you can fill them in but if you’re new to makeup I would recommend choosing a
brow trail so for this eye makeup look I’m going to keep it very simple and
these just might be two shades so I’m going to keep it as simple as possible
if you’re new to also eyeshadow and choosing it and also applying it to your
lips so what I’m going to do is at first I’m going to take a transition shade and
also a crease straight which means I’m going to take this color right here
and I’m going to pop it in my crease right here so when I’m opening my eyes
and you can’t see the line this is where my creases and I’m also going to blend
it a little bit above so I’m just going to show you what I’m talking about so
I’m going to take this so I’m going to take this brush right
here and this is a blending brush as I told you before I’m just going to start
from the outer corner to the inside so from the left to the right I’m not going
to press on it I’m just slightly going to move the product around so now I’m
going to dip into the shade just a tiny bit at first because we are going to
build it up so if you haven’t applied any eyeshadow yet onto your eyes then
just make sure that you’re using at first a little bit and if you want to
add more you always can’t have one so now I’m just going to look into the
mirror but I’m going to look a little bit downwards so that I’m able to see
where my crease is and now I’m going to blend it from the left to the right and
I’m going to add a little bit more and I’m slowly going to build it up I’m in my crease and I’m also going a
little bit above so at first I’m going to hold my brush like this and then when
I’m going to blend it a little bit towards the eyebrows I’m going to hold
it like this which means that the product will move towards the eyebrows
so it’s all about how you’re holding your brush this is where the product
will be and now I’m holding it differently to
get it a little bit more above my crease now as you can see it gives me just a
little bit more depth to my crease so that if you have also hooded eyes for
example which means that your lid will be like this then you can always use a
little bit more of a darker shade and apply it also where your hood is so that
it isn’t that visible anymore and now with the other brush with the
flat eyeshadow brush I’m going to pick this church right here and I’m going to
pop this on my mobile it can also go Mets you can also go for this normal
shape so that this is the only dark shade that you have but if you want a
little bit more Sparkle then you can pop nowadays a sparkly eyeshadow shade also
on your mobile it so I’m going to take the flat eyeshadow brush which gives me
a natural-looking but still very shiny eye makeup look and I’ve just used two
different colors so now I’m going back in with a blending brush and I’m going
to blend the shimmery shade in with the map chip and what we are going to do now
is just take the flat brush again and as you can see I haven’t used this size but
you can also just wipe it on the back of your hands and then go back into the
first shade and pop this on your lower left so I know you have just done and simple
eye makeup look with two shades and it looks beautiful and natural and as I
said you can also go on your web wallet with just a natural matte shade it
doesn’t have to be a shimmery one but then your eye will pop just a little bit
more so now we can move on to highlighter when it comes to the eyes to
finish off the eye makeup look and I’m going to choose this one right here from
the palette so if you have a palette where you have lovely shades in it where
you know that you’re going to wear them a lot some of them and also most of the
shimmery shades you can also use on your cheeks and also in a corner and brow
bone and so on as a highlighter so I’m just going to use my finger to apply it
in the inner corner of my eye and also brow so for my brows I’m just going to
pop this so just a tiny bit and then for the inner corner if you have closed
added eyes you should highlight inner corner if you have white sided eyes
please don’t highlight inner corner because otherwise it can look even worse
so that you have your eyes even more a little bit more wide set it so I’m also
going to use in the inner corner you could also go back in with the brush
from before clean it a little bit and also go back into the highlighting shade
so you don’t really have to use your fingers but you could now we can move on to mascara then the
whole eye makeup look will be completed so I’m going to choose a normal mascara
and I’m also having a little mirror in my hand and what I’m going to do is I’m
going to look downward into the little mirror so that I can see myself and this
way I won’t be able to just mess up my eye makeup look because I’m going to
apply the mascara from underneath and not straight if I would do it now
straight and the risk would be a little bit higher that I can mess up my eye
makeup look but if I’m looking down and doing a strange like face and also
speaking a little bit weird this is when you’re doing it the right way and then give it a couple of seconds to
dry and then you can move on to the lower lash line so and when it comes to
mascara then it’s important that you are not going to pump a lot of air into the
mascara tube because then the risk is higher that it can dry out quicker so if
you are buying a new mascara just dig into it
take it out apply to your lashes and close it back now when it comes to
highlighting your face like your cheekbones Cupid’s bow nose and so on
that it depends on what product you are going to use because the liquid ones are
willing eyes and also the powdery ones are also really nice so it just depends
on what you are going to do if you are going to go for the liquid one then I
would do it right now other ones that would set my face and then later on
moving to powder products so what I’m going to do is you can also do some
matte highlighting which means that you can use this one right here which I was
talking about before like earlier this video this one or you can also go for a
normal liquid highlighter like this one right here so you have the matte
highlighter which is little bit lighter than your skin tone while you have two
liquid highlighter which you are going to apply also on these areas and then
you can blend it out with the sponge so if you want to go for liquid
highlighters then do it now otherwise I just would move on to setting my face
now when it comes to setting your face then you have the option which is liquid
and this is the setting spray or you can go in with some translucent powder or a
normal compact powder which is a pressed powder with a little bit of tint to it
if you want to warm up your face so either way it’s both are fine you can go
with the liquid one you can also go with the powder one if you know that you are
getting quite oily in the t-zone then I would go with the powder one because you
can also get some little compacts with some translucent powder on it and just
powder and touch up during the day otherwise you can also go with some
setting spray for today’s video I’m going to choose the settings play
because I wanted to keep the glow and the natural
finish of my face and I have also used a mattifying foundation so this is also a
reason why I’m going to take the spray have not the powder because then it will
be a little bit too dry for my skin so I’m going to choose the setting spray so
now give it a few seconds to dry into the skin if you have something where you
can just get some air then just hold it in front of you otherwise just sit like
this which is strange for a couple of seconds and then you can also move on to
the next step if y’all would go for some powder then
take the big powder fluffy brush and just dab it into socials using powder
and press it onto your face you don’t need that much we are not going to bake
or anything else it’s just a simple setting your face and place the powder
all around your face now we can move on to some blush so this is what I’m going
to choose this brush right here and also a little bit of brush and I’m going to
place it on the apples of my cheeks and I’m also going it to blend a little bit
towards my ear and hairline so I’m not going to drag it all the way up but I’m
just going to blend it in the direction of my ear and you can also smile a
little bit so that you know where your apples are but then when you’re going to
apply it and just keep it simple and keep like a poker face so that you can
apply it naturally and this blush will also add a little bit of glow so you can
get matte blushes you can also get shimmery blushes you can also get cream
blushes if you are going for cream blushes then apply it before you’re
setting your face because powdered powder and cream on cream so as long as
you’re using cream products do this all the way before you applying some powder
or setting spray if you are using some powder later on then set your face and
do it like I’m doing right now I set my face and now I can go in with some
powder products if you’re adding a little bit of blush
this can also sculpt your face a little bit because we are not going to contour
bronze this is just a natural looking makeup look and now we can move on to
the next step for the next time I’m just going to wipe away my lip balm because
for the next step after this one we are going to apply some lipstick and now I
can also highlight so I’m going to take the highlighting brush or also where I
have used it to set my concealer and I’m going back into this highlighter right
here so it’s an eye shadow but still it works beautifully as a highlighter I’m
going to swipe the brush around and I can just add a little bit more of that
glow you can also take your finger so it’s totally up to you or you could go
in with your finger and your finger will give you always a little bit more of
pigment when it comes to shimmer shades and we are going to keep it very subtle like this said that we have a nice and
beautiful glowing skin I’m going to do it a little bit on my nose and also on
the Cupid’s bow so the way I used to do my highlighting like on my cheeks
Cupid’s bow nose and so on this is also the way how you could just use a matte
highlighter and just apply it also on these areas because this will be also a
little bit more brightening and this is also noticeable so for my lips I’m going
to use a normal lip gloss which is in a natural shade and you could go with
whatever lipstick you wanna go if you have dry lips you just might do not want
to use any liquid lipsticks that dries down so you just want to use a creamy
lipstick but otherwise there isn’t any rule of what lipstick you should use or
what formula you should use it just should suits you and you need to feel
comfortable with so what I’m going to do is I’m just going to apply this lipgloss
right here because I just find that a little bit of shine is there it’s
beautiful and I’m feeling very natural and also blow it with it like this it’s a beautiful shade and
it’s a natural glowing shade and when it comes to lipstick please never forget
the outer corners of your mouth always his little bit of lipstick in the outer
corner of your mouths because when you’re talking and this part is missing
then this can look a little bit strange maybe not with a natural shade but if
you are going into blues and greens of lipstick then these areas if this isn’t
like filled in with some lipstick and it can look a little bit weird because it
isn’t a complete that lip look so this is now the whole makeup look which I’m
going to well which I have presented for you and I hope that you like it it just
takes a few steps and it just needs to be your routine but now I just wanted to
quickly get into something which is really important so I just wanted to
tell you something which I personally feel is really important when it comes
to a buying brushes so when it comes to this punch it really doesn’t matter what
the price is I mean you can get a little bit more expensive ones like the Beauty
Blender for 20 bucks and you can also get like this one which was 5 bucks at
Target you just need to feel the quality if it’s comfortable for you and if
you’re dabbing it onto your skin this is all what it is about so you just need to
feel it and if it’s nice to you then it will work for you it doesn’t matter what
the price is but when it comes to the brushes and you’re starting off with
makeup I would recommend buying a kit which is a kid where you have all the
brushes that you need and it can be a little bit more pricey because when
you’re investing in something that’s it that’s a little bit more price you know
so buddy in equality and you’re doing your makeup everyday then it will last
you longer what I’m going to tell you is that when I first invested in some
brushes I didn’t put any cheap brushes I bought so if our brushes I bought the
first kit where I had all the brushes in it so these are still the purses where I
have like just started off with makeup and they’re still good which means I
have them now for nearly three years so I have to process for nearly three years
and they are still doing a great job and I’m washing
every day and I’m cleaning them and I’m stocking them like I’m using them every
day in my daily routine if I’m doing a video and so on and this is a great
investment because if I would use now very cheap ones and the bracelets will
fall out and I have to buy every month new ones because it was worth the money
and then it gets expensive if you have to spend every month so well less money
but it gets expensive because you’re doing it every month then I just would
recommend buying a little bit more pricey brushes and you can use them for
so many years then buying cheaper brushes and you have to buy every month
new ones so this was the one thing I wanted to point it out it’s so important
to me that you know that because I made experience that if you are going for the
bit more pricey brushes then it’s worth it
so now done with brushes so this is now the final video I know it’s a long one
but still I just wanted to help you out with all these steps and all with these
information and so on and I just hope that you like it and also thank you so
much for watching and listening to me and be patient because makeup needs
practice so even now with three years of practicing it I’m not like perfect
perfect and I can’t and nothing can go wrong it still happened to me that
something goes wrong but I’m keeping improving it and that’s what the way is
so still improve your makeup skill and you’re getting better in it each day
because you’re practicing it this is all what I wanted to say thank you so much
for watching and I’m keeping it now very short so if you wanna see now an other
