Hi, my name is Tiffany, and I'm a makeup artist. Here is a tutorial on how to apply makeup. Let's get started. So, here are our tools. Our first tool is our liquid foundation. We're going to use this to blend out our skin tone. Next, we have our foundation brush. We're going to use this to apply and blend out our liquid foundation. Our next tool is our liquid concealer to perfect our blemishes. Next, we have our concealer brush we're going to use to apply and blend out our liquid concealer. Next, we have our powder we're going to use to set everything together so we have a nice matte finish, and we must have our powder brush to apply and blend out our powder. Our first step is going to be applying our liquid foundation to the back of our hand. Next, we're going to prep our brush and load on both sides our liquid foundation and now we're going to apply it starting through the center of the face, blending down. I like to focus most of my time in the center of the face. That is where we have most of our imperfections, and where I need a little bit more coverage I'm just going to lightly tap my brush, more of a patting or a stippling motion, also using downward strokes. It gives you much more of an even finish to your foundation, more of an even coat. Now, we're going to take our concealer, also apply it to the back of our hand. Concealer is great because it's going to go back to where the little details, what we didn't get with our foundation. This will help to conceal any dark circles or there may be veins that are showing through. If nothing else it will help to neutralize that area to give it more of a fresh or an awake look. And now let's set it all together. So, let's get our powder. We're going to tap it, tap off the excess, start for the center and this part, you know you can play with it. If you're more oily, then apply more powder. If you're more normal to combination, you know play it by ear depending on how your skin feels that morning. If you're a little dry, you may opt out of the powder or just do it right on the T-Zone. That would be the forehead, down to the nose. All done. Applying makeup will only take you about 10 to 15 minutes. The most important thing to remember is to get the appropriate products to even out your skin. That's why our essential item is our liquid foundation so that we can get great perfected skin, and the total combined items today will cost you about 60 to 120 dollars. And that is how you apply makeup. Thank you for watching.
