Hi, I'm Brandy Allen, celebrity makeup artist, at ByBy Studio here in Los Angeles, and I'm going to teach how to do makeup for a commercial actress. Most TV and film is filmed in HD so it's hard to manipulate a look that's flawless using minimal makeup. So you want to make sure you choose the right HD products for this makeup. Today, I'm going to use Makeup Forever's HD Primer Concealer and Foundation. I've already primed my model's skin so next I'm going to take a pea size amount of foundation and work it in with my fingers. I'm using my fingers because oftentimes brushes leave streaking and you want to make sure under an HD camera, you see no streaking, the skin is completely perfect. After working it in with my hands I then take a fluffy blending brush making sure that I get all the foundation buffed evenly into her skin. I'm going to take my HD concealer and correct any discoloration under the eye but still leaving the eye natural and flawless. I'm going to use a cream eyeshadow because cream eyeshadows camouflage to the skin better than powder eyeshadows. For her lips I'm going to use a satin hydrating lipstick. I don't want to use gloss because commercial makeup is not glamorous, it's natural. To continue keeping this makeup realistic, I'm going to finish her makeup with an HD powder. The HD powder is invisible to the eye but perfecting on the camera. And there you have it, how to do makeup for a commercial actress. For more information, please visit or Thank you.
