Hey awesome ones, today I want to show you a powder foundation. I can do this foundation in about a minute and a half. It’s fabulous, not liquid, it’s powder and I’m also going to show you some contouring, some blush.
Also I’ve got those lines under my eyes ,like they’re like blue, my skin’s like blue under my eye so I’m going to show you some concealer and for my brown spots… the whole works. As a former 80s model, I’m 62 years old now, I learned a lot of things and I’m learning from the makeup artist now as well.
So let’s get right to it. Here we go… okay, I have absolutely no foundation makeup on and as you can see I’m almost blue underneath my eyes so we need to work on that with some concealer I’ll also talk to you about bags under the eyes as well when I’m doing that.
I also I used to have freckles when I was a kid and they went away ,yay, but they came back as big brown spots now as you can kind of see here, and I’ve been working on them with creams and that sort of thing but I’m just really finding that the concealer is the best thing for them because they don’t seem to be going away so I’m going to show you a very fast and easy, it’s a powder foundation ,I can get this done in like one and a half minutes so now let’s take a look, and if you’re looking for a liquid foundation and something that’s a little heavier I will be having that in another video.
So now let’s work on his face. We’re just going to start with a little bit of concealer I want to just put it under my eyes nowhere else on my face just a little bit and here’s what I’m going to do I’m just going to use this, it’s a little lighter than my natural skin color and I’m using this brush and just a little and we’ll move down here I’m gonna cheat with the mirror so excuse me for just a second and we’re just going to put it lightly here and go into this purple part of my eye just a little bit.
Now again if you’ve watched my other videos you know I like to blend with my fingers, I don’t know I just get a natural kind of blend with it, I mean whatever is good for you I guess that’s the main thing.
Now I do have a little bag up here, I don’t know I don’t really have them under my eyes I’ve got a bag above my eyes, go figure. Right so if I put concealer on any bags that I have in my eyes I’m going to emphasize them so I’m staying away from that little bag that you can see there and just concentrating on the inside and you can already see the difference here .
Alright just going to do that other eye now So I found out about this powder foundation when I was modeling in the 1980s and so it’s fabulous. Ask for a powder foundation, you usually get a little sponge like this.
Now you notice I didn’t cover any of the brown spots or my imperfections yet I’m going to put this on first and I’ll tell you why later. So I’m starting with a fresh face I don’t have any primer on I really just have my my daytime cream on, and by the way put on your cream at least a half an hour before you put on this powdered makeup you don’t want it to be cakey or you know greasy in spots and that sort of thing and if you’re going in the Sun make sure you have something on with an SPF because this is a very light makeup it’s not a thick foundation so you don’t want to get that sunlight coming through.
All right so just putting a little bit on the sponge as you can see, by the way there are literally hundreds of these foundations, these powder foundations out there make sure you get something that’s really close to your skin color though or you’re going to have a really dark line around here and yeah so make sure of that.
Now I’m not showing the products, I know, I know but I promise you in later videos I’m going to be introducing products and I’m going to give you an honest answer of what I think about them. So here we go with this, as you can see the shine starting to go away we don’t want to put on too much On my nose, goodbye shine and you know all these little wrinkles that we have like that are there don’t put too much powder on them just kind of lightly go over them or you are going to emphasize those they’re wrinkles and we don’t want that.
I’m not also going to do any powder where I put the concealer under my eyes if I do that it’s gonna cake it’s gonna darken, yeah it’s gonna look awfu,l so we don’t do any of that, all right and I go right to the edge I don’t go really too much onto the neck or anything like that ,if anything this color should be very close to your neck color and not a big difference because you don’t want to see like a white neck and then a tan looking face it looks a little weird there’s shine under my eyes.
We’re going to take care of that in just a minute so remember this concealer it’s about the same color as my skin I’m using it on my my hand palette here but I’m now going to cover up those brown spots now why didn’t I do that first and then put the makeup on top and I’ll tell you why.
Whenever I do that, I don’t know , maybe it’s this powder foundation and I’ve tried different kinds of powdered foundation but it makes the spots darker it’s like the the cream that’s in it has some kind of, you know, reaction to the powder and I look at my face and go holy crap I just made them bigger, made them more obvious so this is what I do now and I’m just going to go over those ,see look at all those spots there and watch this.
.. I love this little brush because it just, it just puts on the right amount. Can you see that okay in the mirror, or in the camera I should say. Cover those babies up, now I got a real mess here see this one here it’s a real mess it’s like a gigantic freckle it’s not even a brown spot so we’ll get to that in a second I also have a little bit of a mess here too where I’ve been to the doctor because if you’ve got anything that’s raised on your skin make sure you find out what it is okay we don’t want to have any of that nasty skin, you know what I’m talking about right ,so anyway he checked it out and he said it’s like a skin tag so I’m gonna go around this little nasty thing, oh well, I’m just going to go around it because if I go on top of it I’m gonna make it look ten times worse.
.. there’s another little spot there now this biggie right here I’ll tell you what, that little concealer it’s not gonna work I have to buy a concealer like this it’s a total coverage for a lot of people who have major imperfections in their skin and they have scars and that sort of thing you’ve got to use something like this so I just use the finger and watch it really takes it away because the other one, the other later concealer just doesn’t work, so yeah this stuff is expensive so don’t need to use it all over your face but you can probably see how that’s.
.. and I also kind of put it right up to the the eye makeup and by the way obviously I have my eye makeup on and if you want to see how I did my eye makeup you guys that’s on another video it’s also for a hooded and mature eye so yeah I’d love it if you saw that one as well and, and subscribe to me because the more subscriptions the more I’m gonna do these and I appreciate all of you that are subscribing already it just gives me that extra energy to keep going.
anyway face makeup okay here we go and as you can see I’m looking a little shiny I’m looking, this isn’t looking quite alright so let’s go to the next step. Now as you can see the concealer is shiny and some of the other parts are shiny too so what do I do? I can’t put the powder on because as I mentioned to you it’s just gonna darken up those brown spots so I found this fabulous anti-shine cream, it’s amazing, it’s amazing there’s a lot of different makes of it and a lot of the makeup artists are using it now it has no color in it so it’s not going to discolor any of those brown spots and I love it I just love it, love it, love it, love it so a little bit on a sponge it comes, this one comes with a sponge so away we go and let me just sort of put this on and watch it’s just like magic and you can put that in your purse too for during the day, you know to cover your nose and all that kind of stuff but watch the shine, watch the shine just go away and not leave me with a ton of wrinkles like normal powder even a translucent powder will do that to watch this shine no shine, you see the difference between the two? All right so let’s keep going here and that little spot there then put a little bit of powder on it it’s also it’s not powder, I keep calling it powder, it’s not powder a little bit on those spots we’ve really done away with the oily type of look.
All right blush time now for the blush, I’m just using this color sometimes it’s very pinky, sometimes I’ll go with the peach kind of depending on my mood but I don’t go into the the purples for my type of skin if I started messing around with purples and some of the weird colors they have for blush right now, or you know the blush that is super shiny it’s going to look weird I’m gonna get to putting a little bit of highlighter on my cheekbones but for this part I’m just going to kind of do, I guess they call it the apple of your cheek bones, no the apple of your cheeks, well you know what I mean, this part I’m just gonna do a little bit here just to give me that rosy, rosy glow not too much but just a little bit.
Contouring time I have here a matte bronzer that I use for contouring now I know a lot of people are using these deep Browns and that sort of thing I don’y know, well I kind of look as, I like to look as natural so people aren’t looking like, look at her makeup! I just want to look a little more natural so I’m using this again matte, not shiny, we don’t want to emphasize anything that we got going on there and yeah I’m just going to show you how I contour.
Now cheekbones go to about here, don’t go like right down to your lips right, just about like that you see the nice contour happening I also do a little bit up here a little bit here all these makeup artists that in the 1980s especially you know that’s what we did but it still really works now and many makeup artists that I see and talk to now that doing the same thing too so now I gotta say at my age 62 I got these things going on there’s a little bit of sagging and bagging going on with my face book well I’m not going to go and get those facelifts I don’t know it’s not for me so I gotta use my a little bit of makeup so as you can see under here I’m getting rid of that little, at least make it less obvious, not a lot you don’t want to really make this a big line or anything but just a little subtlety there you see the contour and how does it look? Okay, next, the highlighter, all right time for some highlighter let’s put on some shine.
Wow I’m trying to get rid of shine in here and add some shine, well you know what that’s what the youthful people they got a little bit of shine so we’re gonna add a little a little bit, you don’t want to look like sparkle city you know where it’s all sparkly all over so I just have a little bit.
I love this brush by the way, this is a great highlighter brush so where I put my highlighter is just here, just there it’s for little sparkle and just here so there you go! Now hey, took me longer, longer than one and a half minutes to do this but I’m going to tell you something when I’m rushed and I gotta get going and doing something it’s just like one and a half minutes I’m out the door, which is a good thing because.
.. I have a little dog Hurricane, hey Hurricane and Hurricane doesn’t like, okay you don’t like me doing all my makeup and not being able to take you for a walk fast Oh yes, and I think the makeup is safe for dogs, but anyway and so I get this makeup done really, really fast and I can just do other things, it’s perfect for daytime when you don’t want to be like, having foundation all over the place.
