Hi, my name is Marisela Porras, and I'm a makeup artist, and today I'm going to teach you how to apply makeup modestly. The tools that you're going to need for this one is a buff brush, a smaller blush brush. You need a thick foundation powder brush. You need a very, very thin eyeliner brush, and you need the small angled eye brow brush, a pink toned blush and we're going to match it with the same color of lipstick. We're going to need our foundation powder and we're going to also need our foundation liquid and this is the liquid eyeliner that we're going to be using for this one. So, we're going to start with the buff brush, and we're going to dab it onto our liquid foundation. We're going to, circular motion, start at the bottom of your face up to your nose, under your eyes. Basically covering all our little imperfections, moles or little redness that we tend to have on our face, up to your T-zone under your eyes and on your forehead and this gives you the illusion of a photo finish buffed out look, perfect foundation. Our second step, we're going to use our foundation powdered foundation, I'm sorry, powdered foundation brush. We're going to apply it again all over the face just like we did with the liquid foundation. This is powder. Make sure you cover every angle including your eyelids, T-zone and that's to minimize any shine. We're going to be using the smaller brush and this is for blush. We're going to use your pink toned blush. We're going to start at the cheek bone, buff it out all to the apple of your face to the apple of your cheek shall I say, back and forth motions. Again, dab it, circular motion where the apple of your cheek is, swoop it on back towards your ear and there you go. A little bit on your nose. Now, we're using our angled brow brush to touch up your brows, preferably a color that matches your hair and that's basically it. Now we're going to apply our lipstick. We are using the same color that we used on our cheeks and this is to create that modest almost natural look, sorry here I'm running out of lipstick but we want to continue to maybe three or four coats just to give you that little bit of the same color that you've got going on your cheeks. And this is how we create the modest look. Thank you for watching.
