Hi, my name is Tiffany, and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to apply subtle makeup. The important thing to remember is to use as little product as possible, so that your natural skin shines through. Let's get started. So, here are our tools: Our liquid concealer, so that we can use this to conceal blemishes or scars. Our next tool will be our concealer brush, so that we can use it to apply and blend out our concealer. Next is our powder, so that we can set the concealer, and have a nice, finish. Next is our powder brush to blend out the powder. So, our first step is to apply the concealer to the back of our hand. Next, we're going to take our concealer brush, and gently apply product on both sides. And, just survey your face. You want to see where you have a little bit of imperfections. So, right here where I have little scars, I'm just going to lightly pat to neutralize any darkness that I may have, blemishes, also, to neutralize the redness. And initially, I'm just tapping it to get it in the location in which I need it. No need to be shy, we aren't perfect. And, of course, under the eye. This always helps to brighten up, we look more awake. I like to start just in the inner corner, and then just lightly blend out. And now, I'm going to go back using downward strokes to just blend out those edges. And, it doesn't have to be completely concealed, because we're going to use our powder later to set that up. This is just going to neutralize those darker or redder undertones. So, we take our powder brush, we prep our brush, and we're going to just tap it right on top, tapping off the excess. And then, doing more of a patting motion. The tapping is going to build up the coverage, still gentle and light. But, we don't want to move the concealer that we just applied. So, instead of doing more of a downward stroke, we're going to press into the skin. Then, right on the nose, and gently up on the forehead, any spots where you see a shine, we're going to use a powder to matte that out. I don't like applying powder too close to the eye. I want the concealer to have that nice, moisturized feel. Applying natural makeup should only take about five to eight minutes. The most important thing to remember is that we want to use as little product as possible, so that your natural skin shines through. That's why our essential item is our liquid concealer that we use to cover any imperfections on our face. And the total combined tools today may cost you anywhere from 40 to 80 dollars. And, that is how you applied subtle makeup. Thank you for watching.
