Hi, my name is Jennifer Bradley, celebrity makeup artist. I'm here at the beautiful Academy of Glam Studios in Cooper City, Florida, with my lovely model, Taylor Torino. We're going to discuss how to apply makeup professionally. The key to applying makeup professionally, is always about having the right tools. We're going to apply her foundation, using a sponge. Professional makeup requires the proper tools, to have flawless, camera ready skin. You have to use a sponge to apply your foundation, whether it's a liquid foundation, or a cream to powder foundation, such as, I'm using. Or, even a spray foundation, you have to have a sponge. And, the other main tool that you're going to need, will actually be your fingertips. And I will show you that in a moment. But just really apply the foundation in a thin layer, from the outside of her face, down the neck. And really make her skin look even and flawless. After you apply the foundation all around the face, you're going to work the foundation in, to the nose. You can also use the same foundation to create a base on her eyes. And it's always about blending with the right tools, sponge is everything. Lastly, we're going to take our fingers, and use the foundation to just gently press into her skin. And make any imperfections completely disappear. This gives a more dense application of the foundation. And your fingers really warm up the color and allow for a really smooth finish. And this has been my segment on how to apply makeup professionally. This has been Jennifer Bradley, and thank you very much for watching.
