Subscribe to my channel and hit the Bell Button so that you never miss any of my Future videos and don't forget I'm also On Instagram let's jump into this video Now We're starting with a clean fresh base I Haven't got any skincare on so let's Start with my milk glazing milk so this Is just my general skincare that I use Day to day so this has nothing to do With trying to stop the creasing or Anything I'm just going to press this in Oh this feels so good on my skin at the Moment I'm just my skin is very tired I Didn't get enough sleep last night I Usually let that kind of like sink into My skin for probably about 30 seconds And then I move right in to my road Peptide glazing fluid which is this I Love this skincare at the moment I just Take one pump it's quite a small pump Like amount and I like that because not Too much kind of comes out Oh just doing X I feel I need it at the Moment okay then I move on to my roads Barrier restore cream I don't know what I was going to call this ceramide or Something maybe that was the other one I Just used yeah barrier restore cream and I take about a pea-sized amount not a Lot and then I smooth This all over my face By avoid the eye area Now I feel like my skin is gonna stay

Really nice and hydrated because this is Actually very hydrating this entire Three-step routine from Road I feel like Even when I go for an ultra matte finish Or anything like that like underneath This skincare is keeping my skin Hydrated I'm not my Skin's not drying Out or like shriveling up the next thing I do want to very quickly do is add a Spot treatment because I have a spot Here and it's just a bit red and I want To put this on and see what like Hopefully this can sort it out this is Actually the new one from Fenty skin It's the blemish defeater it's a BHA Spot targeting gel you basically just Apply I don't know if any of this come Out oh yeah it has apply this over the Spot there we're just gonna let that sit On there hopefully we'll see how this Works because I think I've used this Once before but I forgot to kind of like Pay attention to the results very Quickly add a small amount of my eye Cream which is my drunk elephant sea Tango and just add this to my eye area You can use your usual skincare however If you do get lines across majority of Your face like that creasing from the Concealer and Foundation then I would Recommend opting for something which is Kind of extra hydrating for your skin Because it means that we're going to Have to kind of apply a little bit of

Extra powder in those areas and it may Be that you're not used to that amount Of powder now I don't get worried I'm Not going to go crazy with powder Because this whole routine step by step Is actually how you can minimize and Actually avoid completely in some cases The creasing in your concealer and Foundation this isn't just about the Under eye area this is anywhere so this Is great for mature skin too so we've Got that hydration that's going to get To work because we're going to seal Everything in after a little while so We're going to let that do its job we're Now going to move on to the next step Which is my primer now I'm going to be Using my vanish airbrush primer from Hourglass now what I want you to do is Actually Target this to specific areas I Don't want you to apply this everywhere I do find that this primer can kind of Give you that really nice matte finish To your look and it definitely does Control control the oil but what I want You to do is apply this on the areas That you know that you get that creasing So I'm going to take this in my hand Smooth that over and now I'm going to Apply this to the areas that I know that Sometimes I can get some kind of Creasing so just smooth a thin layer Across my forehead I am going to apply This just here because I do get creasing

There sometimes Especially these areas here And then lastly I'm going to take it not Close to the under eye area but you know Not close to the eyes but kind of on That very upper cheek area kind of Crossing into the under eye area at the End of the day you know where you get The creasing all over your face when Your makeup is done so when you look in The mirror and you've had your Foundation concealer on for a while you Know where those areas are it could be The forehead it could be the under eyes It could be other areas on your face but You do know and that's where I really Want you to focus on applying that Primer because this is going to help to Keep the shine at Bay and help to reduce That kind of oiliness come through or Any excess moisture that may come Through so it's going to really help That area as the first step to avoiding That creasing so what we're doing is Using this hack to almost kind of help The skin first before we actually do Other things to help them make up the Concealer and the foundation to stop Creasing that because what happens is When you have that line in the skin or Any kind of like depression in the skin Or kind of fine lines and you put makeup Over it and you haven't actually applied It properly then sometimes what can

Happen is that makeup can start building Up in those fine lines and it looks like It's creases basically you can see them Even more so that's what we're going to Be stopping so now that we've done Applied that primer everywhere what I'm Going to do now is apply my concealer And I'm using my taut face tape face Tape no it's not face Savory shape tape It's shape tape this is 27s which is a Little bit lighter than my usual color But the reason I'm doing that is purely Because I know that the foundation I'm Using currently is usually what I use When I'm super tanned and my Tan's got On my face a little bit so I'm just Trying to balance it all out so I'm Using that and I'm not going to apply Anything to my eyelids at the moment I'm Just going to work on like kind of Sculpting the face first now if you do Not underpaint and you would usually go In with your foundation first it doesn't Mean that this isn't going to help you All it means is you skip through to the Next stage now I'm going to be applying This over my under eye area The reason I'm going for a little bit of A lighter concealer today is because I Am so tired I can really see the dark Circles today and I just want some extra Brightness so that's what I'm doing now The thing is even though you may crease In certain areas such as this area here

You might still want to kind of like Conceal the area right so I know that Some people may assume that okay in the Areas I crease I'm not actually going to Apply a lot of makeup but that doesn't Always help because ultimately maybe you Do need that concealer there maybe you Really do want to cover that area up Because of Darkness or pigmentation so It kind of isn't helping you that isn't Necessarily the solution then is it so What we want to do is apply the Concealer wherever we want to apply it And not be stopped by these dreaded Creases right we're gonna just kind of Brighten the area up and then I'm going To show you the other kind of things That you can do to stop it from creasing So we have got this product Just wherever I wanted to kind of like Apply it for my under eyes And I'm quite happy with that I think I Might just apply a little bit here And here and we'll just do A small amount there I'm going to get my Hollywood complexion brush and I'm just Going to buff The areas in other than my under eye Area There you go right we're going to go in With a sponge and this is where I'm Going to start Buffing in That concealer it's going to look very

White but don't worry about that this Isn't about the colors or the amount I Make up I'm applying this is all about The technique and the order Now that we've done that I'm going to Use my other concealer which is my Nars Radiant creamy concealer in the darker Shade and I'm just going to very quickly Sculpt my face So just do that wherever you want to do It but mine is usually my cheekbones Just up here for a little lift And then on my jawline Oh yeah and my nose I love how I'm just like mine is just And it's like so many places Okay it's not even but I'm gonna do I'm Gonna even it out with my brush what I Meant is it's not symmetrical so okay There you go let's quickly do this I would say I know I did say to you that You know if you don't underpaint then You know you don't Have to you can just skip through to the Foundation stage and just apply your Concealer wherever you want I would Actually say that I think under painting Does help to actually reduce the Creasing a little bit because it's just Kind of like it's not sitting on top It's kind of like almost working as a Secondary base After your kind of skincare and then Before your moisture your

Foundation At this bit we were going to make Symmetrical because I was a little bit Off center now I'm going to get my nose Sheer glow in Aruba I'm going to put This at the back of my hand and this is Where you're going to see this just this Whole routine is so good at holding your Creases back now I've got my milk Hydro Grip and I'm gonna put a pump of that Into this so I did this technique a few Videos ago I think and I've had some Comments from you guys saying that it's Been a game changer for you it's Literally changed the way that you apply Foundation and it is honestly amazing It's mixing your foundation in with a Gel based primer some of you said to me And I and it was really funny because I Was reading your comments and I was like I hope she kept going like I hope they Kept going with what they were doing Because some of you I was reading it and You were like oh I started mixing in it And then it was all like lumpy but then I just I I kept the faith and I kept Going and then it came out amazing Because what can happen is you mix it in And it can look a bit lumpy and you're Like uh no thanks but then you keep Going mix it in you start applying it it Just melts into the skin and and your Skin looks like gloss it's amazing so I've mixed that in the back of my hand

Now this is where I am going to go over With my foundation and like I said if You don't underpaint you could just go Over your skin like skip the concealer Sculpting section and go over with this And then add your concealer wherever you Want to add it It's honestly such an amazing technique Guys like I don't think I've had a Single person comment saying it didn't Work for them like everyone has messaged Back saying it it has literally been a Game changer they cannot believe how Good their Foundation looks and how like It just looks gloss like Now whatever's left on this sponge I'm Going to take onto my eyelids Okay we've covered all this up now at This point everything is tacky on your Skin right as in it's all a little bit Wet because obviously you don't have any Powder or anything on top this is also The point where the creases will start To develop so you're going to start Seeing those creases come through Because with your facial expressions With your facial expressions you know Smiling and everything like this like This is why when I'm doing like clients Makeup I always say to them once I've Done their Foundation before the powder Please do not know smiling nothing like No Expressions just complete poker face Right because we don't want that those

Creases to settle in now if they have if You are making facial expressions like What I'm doing it's fine because we can Still kind of take them out we can still Take those like the product that's built Up in those Cruises out before we Actually move on to powdering the areas That I have a concern with are gonna Start creasing up but not as bad as they Usually do because we went in with that Targeted primer to begin with right so That's helping those areas it's a Helping hand to what we're going to do Now now I've got my powder which was my Makeup forever Ultra HD setting powder In light banana you can use any Translucent powder you like although I Would recommend it is a you know good Powder that has good reviews so I would Always read the reviews of powders like If you're stuck on what to get if you Actually head over to my online Publication called Confessions of a Creative I have the best powders for Every skin type on there and it is Something you're going to love I think It's the currently what I have is a Selection of the best setting powders There is another post coming soon which Is the best setting powder for each skin Type head over there you're going to see That on my publication it's like Honestly you need to save it so I've got This I've got my Powder Puff which is my

Laura Mercier powder part now I've got This in one hand ready because time is Everything right now guys time is Everything because what we're going to Be doing is making sure we don't have Any creases in some of these areas first Off I want to just set my eyelids Because I just want to get that done Right so you can already see that there Are creases there settling in that Crease line now what I'm going to do is Take the pointy part of my sponge and I'm just gonna press there's nothing on The sponge other than whatever was Already on it And this is basically picking up any Excess product from there And soaking it up now while my eyes are Looking down I'm going to very quickly Get my powder And I'm going to press on top And get a smaller amount than me if you Want you don't have to use as much as me It's sitting there we've got the Real Techniques setting brush nothing on this Brush and we're gonna dust this away That is completely set now it's not Going to go anywhere you're not going to Get any creases there whatsoever now What we want to do is do the same thing For the under eyes the under eyes are The first thing that you should do once You've done your eyelids if you do that Area under eyes first we're going to get

Rid of any creasing that's settled in Those lines or where they're going to go In with the powder press it in and then We're going to dust it off right this is Why you need everything kind of all at Once here and we're going to get this Sponge squeeze it so we can really get Into that area Really kind of like press into the Crease like the the creasing that you Can see and then drag up not too hard Though softly yeah Right let's get the powder Okay There you go now I'm going to get the Sponge while that's sitting there which Is not very long at all We're gonna do the same thing here I Feel like a look look like a crazy Person doing this right now okay do this Same thing here There you go get your brush nothing on This brush very lightly We're gonna dust this off We've only done the under eye area right We're not dragging this powder anywhere Else over the face we're just sticking To really setting the eye area that is Done guys you're not going to get any Creasing there now I'm telling you if You follow this routine down to every Single bit with this same products or Very similar texture products and you Apply like a similar amount even if you

Apply less it is gonna work for you I'm Telling you this is gonna honestly stop Your creasing it's amazing I have been Doing this technique for years and I Don't have to worry about creasing and I Get creasing I used to get creasing so I Don't have to worry about that so I'm Telling you this is going to work Amazingly for you okay now what about The other areas that maybe you get Creasing similar thing what we're going To do is make sure there is no creasing There Grab your powder So maybe you don't want to go over your Entire face with powder you can do by The way if you want that Ultra matte Look you can but I don't want that look Today so I'm only applying on the areas I know I do not want that area creasing I would rather kind of like have glow in The other areas so I've applied it there Sometimes by the way I do get it here as Well I'm gonna dust that off Now the other areas of the face where I'm not so concerned about creasing you Really need to decide whether you want To apply powder there or not and if you Do you don't have to apply it in the way That I have if you apply it with a Powder puff then obviously like I said You're going to get a matte finish but You do have other options so on the rest

Of the face where you're not so Concerned about creasing what you could Do is get a kind of like powder brush Whatever size you want to get dip it Into the powder take the excess off so There's not too much powder on here and Then kind of lightly dust it over the Face and what this does is it actually Does set your makeup But later on in the day you will still Get that slight glow come through so Don't think that this is going to set it And that's it dusting powder on your Face is not going to keep your makeup There all day with a brush if you dust It on it's not going to do it it will Set it for a little while but eventually You will see that shine come through you Will see that glowy kind of look come Through and if you have excessive oil Production then you will see oiliness Come through it will look greasy that's Just the truth of it I'm just dusting Off some powder that's the truth of it It is what it is it does come through so If you really want to stop that shine From coming through you have to use a Powder puff you have to press it in make Sure making sure there are no creases There that is basically done I just want To very quickly kind of do my brows and Stuff so that I can just talk you Through like what we've done and I'm Also going to very quickly show you how
