I have included a make-up section on my channel and website as I believe it can help build self esteem. My make-up tutorials are really basic! In this video I show how to apply foundation with either your fingers, brushes or a sponge!
hi guys today I'm gonna do a makeup video I haven't done loads of makeup videos and the reason I haven't is there are loads and loads and loads of people on YouTube that do videos and they probably have much better clue than me I'm not professional but I do know how to do makeup mainly I don't get to watch videos because I don't get time but I read magazines and over the years I just pick up lots of different tips now I decided to include a makeup section in my website and on my channel because when I got out of active addiction and when I was in rehab there were so many girls that they didn't in there using days all their money went on drugs all the money won on drinks me included and you kind of come into recovery and you just don't know where to start it's the same like if you've suffered with your mental health I used to just not want to go out bad let alone do makeup and so when like I said you come into recovery and it is where'd you start there's so many different foundation BB cream CC creams and I'm sorry what so I thought I would include it and I'm gonna do it really basic basic I'll try and do it basic basic and because makeup can help build you a bit of self-esteem now it can also do the opposite not that can knock yourself esteem but I know sometimes when I used to feel like so inside and I'd put the makeup on my bright colors and it was really like actually wearing a mask and I would feel confident and and that's fine but I'm not suggesting you do that because the whole point you come into recovery you don't want to have to wear that mask we want to be able to be real and show our true selves but like I said it can help with self-esteem in fact I'm not saying cover up your face put loads and makeup on but there's nothing wrong with are they accentuating the good bits that you have or just wearing a little bit sometimes like I go out if I go out completely bare face say to the shop I can just feel like and other times I can go out just with a little bit of makeup on and it can just make me feel a bit more confident and bettering myself so that is why I've included it one because if you don't have a clue I can kind of show you what's what and - like I said build your self-esteem a little bit right so I've got one of these things I don't even know where I got this probably Primark or somewhere I put this on because otherwise I get makeup in my hair only there right now foundation you have if you don't like wearing foundation because you find it too thick you can use a BB cream which stands for beauty balm I have this one and I really really like it basically BB cream is slightly like less thick it's not as heavy as foundation so you could use that you could use a tinted moisturizer if you do want to wear foundation obviously I am NOT there with you to color match so I would say the best thing for you to do go into someone like boots and speak someone like Sarah and say can you color match me with like they do it they've got their own number 7 range and they can do that but I've known them to go in and I can tell you I don't even know where to start I don't know what color and they will actually go around the different makeups and help and it's really really worth doing that because if you don't and you just don't know how to do it just get some advice because I know for years and years I went through a stage or wearing foundation that was so lie I've got pictures me now and I was literally like a ghost they never occurred to me that it wasn't my skin color and and I didn't know how to color matte and even now I don't come at myself I go in to whatever makeup I'm using I'm on eve-san a roll at the moment this one the two should that foundation and I love it but I'll go in there and get them to color match me and they can tell me because it's easier that way and then I won't get it wrong right basically before I've done that I have moisturized I have used primer primer will help the makeup stick to your face and will last longer there was a tip I read in a magazine apparently some vlogger actually had run out her primer or something and she used her boyfriend's post balm thing and realized it was amazing and it's like three quid or something and the reason is I think is it glycerol loose ringless roll basically the one of the ingredients is what makes stuff stick to your face so I've actually started using this now as a primer so I've already done that and now I can start on my foundation now there are different ways of putting foundation on you can use your fingers you can use brushes or you can use a sponge there is no right or wrong way of doing it it's what suits you what you feel happy with for years or I used my fingers so they cling with the fingers I think it will work it more into the skin more coverage I find thrushes for more airbrush feel I use a sponge I've jumped come to Foundation I've completely forgot now I wanted to show you color corrector sticks these little boobies these ones are Max Factor these aren't the only ones they do as well they come in all different colors basically this one is for under-eye circles this one is for dark spots and I've got if you can see like down here like where I was had spots ages ago I suffered with some acne I went through a stage of it and the spots are gone but it's kind of left dark patches I find that really helps and this green one is for red you know so if you've got a red spot I can't actually see any red on my face today but dark patches I can so yeah before I put my foundation on sorry about that I told you I'm not professional right I'm going to use this under my eyes good this I'm really paranoid about the dark pits like under my eyes there we go so that is under my eyes like I said I can't see red bits today but I can see the dark bitch so I just got it all I've got loads this side ah there's a little bit of red on my chin I can use my green stick there so they like I said they're color corrector sticks there are about 10 or each I think Avon I've just bought some out as well but I haven't tried those ones but like I said they're Max Factor and they're about $9.99 each right so I've done that now we can get on with the foundation I just showed you rubbing my fingers and you can do that all over um or you can have I've got the real technique brushes it's really worth having good brushes good sponge it makes so much difference like I've tried cheap brushes before and you get the bristles coming off and it just doesn't give a great finish but like I said the Real Techniques brushes are really really good and I got them I think when they were on offer and boots so right if I'm going to use my brush I will present foundation and literally devious as you can see it's covering up all the color corrector it's not like leaving it a different color where it was so I'm going to do half with this brush I try and result the eyebrows but I usually tend to get foundation in my eyebrows but I use um couple things after to brush my eyebrows so when I'm doing it you can see I'm not I kind of brush ow ow ow when I'm doing under the chin because for years I'll just blend blend blend but now if you blend light under here you can't actually see the line so even though you still blend you're much less likely to get that line halfway down your neck you can see what I then do after I've brushed I get the buffing brush which is there and I'm not brushing it off and literally like pushing it in but just doing this and it just gives it a nicer finish in the eyebrows lovely ooh right so now I'm going to show you with the sponge I actually really like the sponge you can use it slightly damp as well right so I've got my foundation on here I just do I just dropped it about to start with and it's literally like just pushing it on like this not rubbing it's like blotting it again I've got my eyebrows lovely that's pretty much it if you feel you need more just add a little like a light lay again you can use your brows your fingers or a sponge I'm just going to add a tiny little bit more right here like I said I'm paranoid about the bags and I will just go it those up I do do my lips because then I find it gives it like a nice even base color for when you do lipstick but this video I'm just going to do the foundation I'm not going to do bronzer I'm not gonna use my to ship lat or my eye serum just yet I'll do that in the next video and literally just keep doing it until you think yeah that's blended enough or I need to blend more and more and more Joe if you get like sometimes like slightly red here I just literally tap it gently to make it all match so I haven't like got these big red it is poking out mmm that's it guys
