Process like how do we use concealers to Sculpt and Contour the face which is Basically a part of kind of Underpainting because what we're going To be doing is using those products Before we actually apply our foundation So your foundation is there to kind of Like tie everything together as a veil Of color at the end now I've had a few People kind of comment with some Questions on the recent reel that I did On Instagram regarding underpainting I'm Going to answer those as we go along so First off I am going to start with my Moisturizer because skincare is really Really important and because we're Currently in the winter month of December which it doesn't actually feel Like you're here in Dubai because it's Just so warm still but at night time in Early early morning it is actually a Little bit chilly I'm not going to say What the temperature is because you'll Just laugh at me we're going to be using Marrakesh which now this is perfect for This season I do use it throughout the Summer as well but I feel like my skin Is a little bit tight but this is Basically going to help to give us a Really really good kind of just like Really plump nice smooth finish to the Skin which is just perfect for our base I'll be honest I just washed my face and It was feeling really really tight

Because it's a little bit I'm not going To say dehydrated at the moment because I feel like at the moment because of the Weather and not just the weather but Also recently my Skin's been feeling a Little bit tight and that's why when I Do apply this moisturizer I feel like I'm just giving it like I'm just like Literally throwing a bucket of water at It it feels so good like right now when I applied it I was like oh my God it's Just so soothing and just thank God I've Got this moisturizer on now I think what I do like about this moisturizer is that It doesn't feel like it kind of just Absorbs my skin absorbs it and then it Feels dry or like tight again like I Feel like it lasts once I've applied it That's it it's like cushioning my skin With that moisture and it's just perfect For me so anyway moving on we are going To be prepping the skin now so we've Already applied our moisturizer I'm now Going to go in with my eye cream I'm Using my drunk elephant sea Tango just Gonna get that around the eye area here And now I'm going in with my milk makeup Hydro grip primer I'm just smoothing This over I'm not rubbing it in I'm just Literally just smoothing it over the Skin because it leaves like a tacky Finish to the skin so what is under Painting under painting is basically When you apply everything in terms of

Your concealer your liquid blush or Cream blush if you're using a liquid or Green brush everything goes on Underneath and then you finish off with Your layer of foundation on top which is Basically just a kind of veil of color On top to tie everything together this Isn't actually a new trend this has been Used by makeup artists like myself for Decades it's genuinely a technique which Gives you the most beautiful soft focus Look and it's something that I know You're gonna love and I know that a lot Of you who are kind of loyal subscribers Of mine part of my YouTube family have Been actually using this technique as Well since you've joined my community And you guys are loving it and it gives You that kind of really nice subtle like I said soft focus look it's great if you Feel like you're not great at contouring Or if you feel like you are still trying To get the hang of it and you're a bit Scared of it then this is perfect for You because what happens is you're kind Of like like I said adding a veil of Color which is your foundation which Should be a very light to coverage Foundation you're adding that at the end Over everything that you've applied like Your concealer and everything or whether You're using Contour whatever we're Going to go through we're going to touch On that in a second you're adding a

Layer of foundation right at the end and Then you're going to set it as usual and What happens is that Contour that you've Done underneath kind of like peeks Through so it gives you a very subtle Contour it's not harsh for me honestly I'm so obsessed with this technique and It's so kind of in my blood now that I Feel like if I were to do contouring on Top of foundation like it just makes me Think no way like I I just feel like I'm I'm done if you see what I mean like the Whole look is undone because there's Nothing there to give it that soft focus Look like you're just kind of like left With raw edges and I don't like that so If I want to kind of explain this to you Properly and show you in detail how you Do this now I'm going to show you my Technique week now this is no different To underpainting it just means that I Use different products for certain Things we're going to be using Concealers to sculpt and Contour I'm not Going to be using Contour Products Because I very rarely do use them now We're going to be starting with my Concealer which is the tarte shape tape In 35n medium now what I'm going to do Firstly is prep my Lids so I'm going to Apply a little bit of concealer here Buff it in and then set it with powder My eyelids are prepped then so ready for Anything else I'm going to be doing on

My face so I'm just going to go over With a little bit on my eyelids you Apply however much you feel that you Need on your lid area I know how much I Usually go for based on the rest of the Face like how much I'm going to be Applying on the rest of the face so this Works for me now what I'm doing is Pressing the sponge over the eyelid area Just bouncing it over all the way across So that it covers everywhere including The inner part this area here Get some powder I'm going to get my Beni Banana powder and my Laura Mercier Powder puff and I'm just basically gonna Press this in now I've pressed that in and now what I'm Doing is getting my Real Techniques Brush and just kind of like dusting off All the powder right eyelids are Completely ready now and now this is Where I'm going to apply this to my Under eye area and this is going to help To kind of like cover my dark circles Obviously Gives me a lifted finish this is part Concealing and part contouring I like to Let that sit just for a little while so While that's sitting there I just want To very quickly explain what I'm going To call each product so I'm working with Concealers now because that's what I'm Going to show you how to Contour with And how you can sculpt your face with it

I'm going to explain to you as I go Along why right I really want you to Focus on the areas that I'm applying it To so what part of the face and Understanding the facial structure we're Not just kind of slapping it on anywhere It the place that we apply it is very Strategic to kind of mimic shadows and Give the illusion of a different kind of Shape now what I want to do is really Enhance certain areas too as well as Disguise certain areas now I'm going to Be calling one product the light Concealer and one product the dark Concealer it's pretty obvious which one Is which so I'm working with the light Concealer first now the reason we have Two products there we've got a light and A dark now when you think about light You think about let's just think about White right so when I say light Concealer think of of white it's easy For the light to bounce off of that White and give the illusion of a larger Surface area right because it's white Now when you think of the dark concealer I want you to think of black and when You think of a light bouncing off of Black it doesn't bounce off of black Because there's no there's nothing for It to bounce off of because it's so dark I want you to think about that when you Think about a light and a dark concealer What we're going to be doing with the

Light concealer is helping to make Surface area look a bit bigger and haunt Those areas remember how I mentioned About how when the light bounces off it Gives the illusion of a larger surface Area and when we are working with the Dark concealer I want you to imagine Right okay no light is bouncing off of That so that can be used to actually Disguise areas and just kind of almost Reshape certain areas what I want you to Remember is those two the light and the Dark work hand in hand if you only to Use the light yes it will help to Enhance certain areas but when you use It with that dark shade it's like a Match made in heaven it like literally Complete they complete one another so The light will be working at its best And the dark will be working at its best So when you actually put those two Together and you've got light areas and Then you've got dark areas on your face It creates depth and that is what I Really want to kind of explain to you That what we're creating is depth on the Face because of where we're going to be Applying it it's also helping to kind of Sculpt the face so I really hope that Kind of made sense and I want you to Understand what the light concealer does I want you to understand what the dark Concealer does now as well as obviously Everything that I've explained how light

And dark work together really well I Want you to also understand that we're Also helping to conceal primarily it's The light shade that is really going to Be doing a lot a lot of the concealing For us I feel like that didn't come out Of my mouth right I love that I love That a lot of the concealing brass the Dark shade I like to use a concealer Still because I feel like the texture is Great it it dries up nicely on the skin And it it works well if you're using the Same kind of texture you know I don't Want to use a contour to a product which Then kind of slides all over the place Or kind of like veins on for a little While so at least I know when I'm using Concealers I'm kind of like you know Getting the best of everything I'm Getting some concealing I'm also helping To enhance areas and disguise areas and I know it's going to stay put there Because that's what concealer is made to Do as well I hope this all makes sense Now we're going to go in and buff this Under eye area So I'm just literally pressing this one Into the under eye area see how nicely That just gives me the most Flawless Finish because we let it set for a Little while same on this side Foreign Messy today please don't mind it I don't Usually have it like this but the next

Video I'm filming is very special one I Need it to be loose so that I can Actually curl it and do loads of stuff With it which I'm really excited about You guys see now what I'm gonna do is go For a different concealer the I just Want to make this very very clear right Because I've when a couple of you have Seen the videos in the past that I've Done you've seen that I use maybe two Concealers as a light concealer and You're like way that like whoa that's Too many concealers going on like I'm Not going to use that many concealers I Really really want you to understand That when you see me doing these videos I really am showing you how good Products are certain products are that I Absolutely love but also the technique The only reason that I use two light Concealers the only reason it has Nothing to do with the technique like in Terms of the underpainting technique at All I like more coverage on my under eye But the rest of my face I don't like it To be too heavy so if I was to use my Shape tape everywhere else it's just Going to be too like almost mask-like so The only reason I use a separate Concealer is because this is like not Much coverage the Nars radiant concealer Is not much coverage for me it's just Not strong enough for my under eye area But it's perfect for the rest of the

Face so it's not really to be with the Color it's purely down to the fact that One gives me good coverage and I only Want that white under eye area the other One is not the best coverage but it's Light enough to be able to give me just The right amount of coverage that I need For the rest of the face you know I Really hope that makes sense so yeah When you look at this and you're like Hell no I'm not using like two three Concealers just bear with me trust me And I hope you understand why I'm using To concealer now I'm going to go in to This area here right so I'm just drawing A line again you don't have to make it This thick guys the only reason I'm Really doing it this thing is because I'm going for you know like I want you Guys to really see it you know if I do a Little Dash here and there it's really Not going to be that visible to you so I Just want you to be able to see it all Properly now I'm going to apply this and Then I'm going to explain to you why Remember when we did the top shape tape On the under eye area remember we lifted It here a little bit that is helping to Enhance the area and it's also helping To lift the area right so it's helping To just make that area look a little bit More lifted now can you see with every Product that I've applied here like Everywhere that I've applied it it's

Kind of like enhancing those areas so We've got the forehead here because even Though I may not really be that fussed About the coverage I know that I need it To kind of go flow with the rest of the Face if I were to leave the forehead Completely out I've seen some people not Apply any foundation or concealers their Forehead and the rest of the face is Like Flawless and it doesn't mean that The foreheads are not Flawless it just Means that it looks so disconnected to The rest of the face so I hope that all Makes sense what I'm doing here is I'm Lifting these corners of my mouth Because I want that lifted look and I Can tend to be a little bit darker on This area the nose is done because I Want to elongate it and once I apply That dark concealer it's gonna like kind Of like just all of a sudden take it to A different level which I'm going to Show you and then obviously foreheads Want to enhance it like I said and the Chin it helps to elongate my face so now Just take a look at my face before I Blend everything in and you can really Kind of I want you to really think about What I just said we've got the forehead To enhance the area down the nose to Enhance it but again every single Section here is going to just be boosted When I apply that dark shade and then We've got this area here which is

Helping to lift the area so it's kind of Reshaping the face a little bit and kind Of enhancing areas so giving it back Back to that kind of that use or that Lifted look that you really want so now That we've applied that I'm now going to Very quickly apply my dark shade and Then I'm going to explain to you why I've applied it in those areas Foreign Carefully at my face because I really Want to explain as you're looking at my Face and everywhere that I've kind of Contoured I want to explain to you how It's all kind of like working hand in Hand now the forehead area we enhanced And what we're going to be doing is Where we've got a dark shade here right That is going to help to just slim down The forehead a bit so this area here but You will notice more of a difference When I start buffing everything in That's when you'll really see it but I Really want you to see the lines at the Moment so you can really see my Positioning of everything you know my Placement of everything so we've got two Dark Shades here it's very close to the Hairline because we're going to be Blending this into the hairline this is Going to kind of like make this look a Bit smaller there but then the light Shade is going to enhance that area do You see what I mean if I only applied

This it's really doing half the job now The nose area you've got a little kind Of v shape just in the tip of my nose Because personally I feel like the tip Of my nose is a little bit bulbous so What I like to do is just make the tip Look smaller and that V there is going To really help to just kind of like give It that nice small button effect which I Personally like I've got the dark shade On either side of the bridge of my nose The light shade that I applied there Helps to kind of sharpen that kind of Lengthen the bridge of the nose and this Dark Shader here helps to just make this Look slimmer right now we've got this Section here and here it comes from the Top of the ear or roughly around that Area and it comes in but we don't ever Bring it too far in because it's just Going to look way too kind of sharp then So you should kind of keep those the Dark Shades more towards the perimeter Of the face when you're working on the Larger surface area of the face this Area here jawline don't put it above the Jawline always go below the jawline Because that's where you want to really Shade it in downwards so it gives the Illusion of a shadow there and makes Your jawline looks sharper so it's great If you suffer from like jowling or you Feel that you just don't see a jawline This chin area here is helps to elongate

That because I don't want it to look too Short so everything kind of Works hand In hand and now I'm going to start Buffing it all in I have two two Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood complexion Brushes I've got one for my dark shade And one for my light shade I'm going to Start with the light shade first because That's the first one that we actually Applied and now I'm basically just kind Of brushing it in I'm going to leave That nose area because it's going to Start touching the dark area otherwise I'm just going to kind of like go along The tune so you can you see I'm keeping Everything in its original position but I'm basically just buffing it in and That will give me a really nice Flawless Finish but also keep that lift there Everywhere that I wanted it I did forget To mention these two dark little dots Here because when you apply just a tiny Dot here tiny dot here it helps to Actually make the lips look bigger that Way really go small with your amount Because if you do too much it just looks Like a mustache so okay now what I'm Going to be doing is going into the dark Shade I'm going to use my other brush I'm going to start with actually just Buffing this into the hairline but I'm Keeping the shape like the positioning The placement where it is I want to Blend it out too much like I don't want

It to look like all of a sudden it's Gone into a different area can you see This like it looks more like a shadow Now and now same thing here we are going To just basically keep we're going to Keep pressing we're not bringing it too Far into the face we want to keep the Positioning where it is but we just want That to look really nice and soft now so Same thing here we are going to be just Buffing this in here and then do the Jawline see how I'm just buffing this Downwards now so I really hope you can See how that's made the face look Sharper but can you imagine just leaving This as it is it's just way too much We're going to be putting a very low Color on top shortly I'm flipping the Brush so I'm using the smaller part and I'm going to keep this shape the same I Want to just soften it so it doesn't Look so kind of sharp you know and that Light shade down the middle I'm just Going to literally go over with my Finger a little bit so it doesn't look Like there's too much product there and Then right here same thing very very Subtle but everything is still there It's kind of obvious but it's soft right But now we're going to make it even Softer shortly now let's apply a little Bit of blush because I really do want to See like show you that whole Underpainting underpainting technique in

Full I'm going to to be using this which Is from him Dash it says new color fluid Ultra matte in heartist and this looks Like a really nice color so I'm gonna Just paint this kind of on just in this Area here and you can the great thing About under painting that is if you want To go extra with everything you really Can because you're going to go over with A veil of color which is going to make It look a lot more kind of subtle so I'm Just getting my Sigma f67 brush and I'm Just basically going to buff this in This is the first time I'm using this Guys and I love it it literally just Blends in so easily I love that and this Color is just so nice and I have a Feeling this is going to be great like If you want to mix it with other Shades Obviously because when a makeup artist Creates products it works way better Because we take into account mixing Because that's what we love to do and That's what we have to do when we're Working on clients now what I'm going to Do is I'm going to get my foundation so I really hope you can see how this is Kind of given the face depth it's all a Bit kind of a bit too much at the moment So we're going to get our foundation Okay and the foundation I'm going to use Is my hourglass ambient soft glow Foundation my shade is 10.5 and it's a Really really lovely Foundation I'm just

Going to put this on the back of my hand Now this is where we're going to buff This into the skin because I'm sure You're probably wondering well if it's Going to be a kind of like veil of color On top then isn't it going to move Everything around it really doesn't as Long as you apply it in the correct way Plus if you were to apply Contour like As in like actual Contour Products you Know like cream Contours and you were to Do that first and then you were to go in With your foundation the problem you Have is the products underneath will Probably move because they're not meant To set right when you look at kind of Cream Contour Products majority of them Don't really set and stay in place and That's why I love using concealers Because obviously I'm going to get my Conceit concealing out of it right it's Going to conceal the areas that I want It to conceal but the brilliant thing About it concealer is made to actually Set right it's made to set or as much as Good as it could possibly set right so When you apply it you actually like like Now this is not going to go anywhere It's much easier for me to apply that Foundation on top because it's not Actually going to move the product Around anywhere so now what I'm doing is I'm getting this Foundation I'm buffing It into my sponge first so I don't want

To get a whole dollop of it and just Move it around I've buffed it into my Sponge first and then I'm going to start Buffing it into my forehead right so I'm Going and being like very clever with How I'm applying it where I'm applying It work your way down from the top and I'm never gliding I'm always bouncing Right so this sponge will never kind of Move back and forth the only place it Kind of does is like along the jawline Because I really want to make sure I get That Blended in now I'm going to go on The under eye area but you're gonna see How everything starts to look really Soft focus and I can promise you had you Not have applied any of this contouring With concealer to me and you had just Gone in with your foundation generally It would not look the same at all it Would look very flat just like you've Just put foundation on and that's it Like this gives you a way more kind of Softer finish and let me just answer a Couple of questions that I can remember Off the top of my head on Instagram like Someone put I've tried this technique But then when I apply my Foundation I Feel like everything looks really flat And it and it covers everything up That's because you're probably using a High coverage Foundation a high coverage Foundation is not going to work with This technique because what's the point

Of doing anything underneath then so High coverage Foundation is usually There because you want full coverage Just from the foundation this isn't for That it doesn't work with a full Coverage Foundation you need a Foundation which doesn't have amazing Coverage because there's no point in it Because you want all this to peek Through right so you've got to think About how your kind of what products are You using okay so we are just kind of Like buffing this all in I love how this Pink is just peeking through it's like The perfect amount right now you've got To the uh kind of like jawline I'm just Gonna really kind of make sure that's Nicely Blended in see how you can still See the sculpting coming through and Trust me I can't stress this enough if Had I not put any of it underneath it Would not look like this at all now I'm Going to go in with my powder I'm going To go in with my Ben eye okay so what I'm going to do is just press this in You can use whatever powder you want I am just gonna basically press this in There Just to my under eye areas And can you see how I'm kind of like Mimicking where I applied all the Lighter shade concealer I'm just dusting it off with a big brush I really want I know I don't have my

Browser anything done but I really want You guys to see like you can still see That sculpting so you can still see that Very like lightly peeking through you Can still see the blush coming through Obviously it's all about matte at the Moment but I quite like it that way but If you don't like it Matt you can spray Like a setting spray on top something Which is like a dewy setting spray to Kind of soften it or give it an hour and Your natural oils will come out and It'll all look a bit more kind of like Lived in but this is basically under Painting like this is when you have that Really nice kind of like soft focus look Let me just very quickly do my brows I'll be back in a sec And I've backed I've done my brows I've Just added the tiniest amount of lip Liner and now what I want to do is just Kind of show you how you can Contour on Top with powder if you want to so if you Feel like you want to just bring Something out a little bit more like Everything's very soft focused but if You really really want to go a bit extra Like sometimes I go extra on my nose Area that's what I'm going to show you Now I like to use a bronzer because it's A little bit more warming I don't really Like to use kind of gray products on my Skin it doesn't do anything and more to My skin anyway and then in certain

Lights it looks like I've got a dock it Just looks weird so anyway I'm going to Use this it works perfectly this is my Fenty sunstalker bronzer in Shady Biz And my Fenty 200 brush now this is my Dark shade so remember we've got light And dark I'm doing dark first so this is I'm going to do the well this is my Brush that's what it's going to say I'm Going to do my V so exactly the same as What we did with the concealer but I'm Doing it with the powder And then I'm going down the sides of the Bridge of the nose And then sometimes I like to just cut it Off at the top there so it's just a Little bit more kind of buttery and That's basically my dark shade done next I go to my light shade right this is to Enhance the area and I'm going into a Highlighter I'm using my Tom Ford skin Illuminating powder duo in mood light And this is my 234 brush from zoever and What I'm doing is applying a little bit Just on the tip of my nose and that kind Of like make sure that it doesn't all Look so dark and it just enhances the Tip then I go along the bridge of my Nose here but just like a little bit I Don't like it to be like a full line Down the middle it's a bit too much and That basically is it so I really do hope That that's kind of helped you with the Whole under painting technique and
