Artists do use and I'm going to be using A concealer so I'm using a dark Concealer to sculpt my face now the Reason we use a concealer is because it Sits really really well onto the skin You're not going to get that muddiness It's a concealer that's meant to kind of Cover so you're kind of give it getting That coverage but you're also sculpting The face the second part of this hack is That we are going to be doing it Underneath our foundation now I know you Can call this underpaid painting which Is what what it is it is under painting But it is still quite unknown I think For a lot of people so this you could Potentially call this a hack it is Basically sculpting underneath your Foundation for that soft focus effect so What I'm going to be doing is grabbing Hold of my dark concealer and I'm using My Nars radiant creamy concealer and I'm Going to apply this in all these areas Now Another part of this hack is that this Actually helps to lift your face And I'll explain to you why because if You see I'm actually applying everything in the Same direction Now because we're actually doing this Underneath our foundation It's okay if you get a little bit Heavy-handed with this

Because we are going to kind of cover it Up with Foundation now I hear some of You saying well Isn't the foundation just going to cover Everything up Not if you use a light to medium Coverage Foundation now I'm going to get My Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Complexion brush and I am basically Going to just buff this now my aim is is To make sure that it stays in the same Place but it's kind of like still Obvious that it's there we don't want it To like completely disappear See all of that you can see you can see It now right but it's buffed in so the Edges are not so harsh Let's do the same here And we're going to do the same here as Well Now I'm gonna get my concealer now I'm Using my Nars soft matte concealer in Ginger and I'm going to use my finger For this so I'm because it's in a pot I'm just going to warm it up with my Finger and I'm going to apply this To certain areas to help kind of like Open up that whole area and it's going To also work hand in hand with that Sculpting we've just done Go down the nose I'm just going to touch the tip a little Bit with it you can see how that's kind Of shaped my nose there

Don't be afraid to use your fingers if You're going to use your fingers it's Better to work with a kind of like a Concealer similar texture to this which Is kind of like a I would say compact Cream so not liquidy it's much easier I Know you could say it's just using a Different kind of like part like a Different tool you're not using a brush Or the wand but honestly I cannot tell You how much I think this is a great Kind of hack because rather than using a Brush you're letting the warmth of your Finger really kind of melt that into the Skin and shape your face Um we're going to take it up there can You see that the face is like slowly Being sculpted now and I love how this Concealer has really kind of melted into The skin so when we go over with that Foundation I don't feel like it's a Thick amount I feel like it's really Kind of like this is really pressed into The skin now I'm also going to lift here Because can you see I've got that really Nice lift here but now I want all this To kind of go up as well I always feel like when you're using Your finger it's much easier to kind of Like Get the shape that you want to I'm going To do the other side Now this little hack basically painting With fingers other than the dark section

You can use if you have like this Concealer and in a much darker shade you Could use this for the darker parts of Your face but using your fingers really Helps to kind of like melt the product Into your skin and you just feel like You've got more control so if you gen Generally don't find it easy to sculpt And things like that I would highly Recommend this technique because it Honestly is going to make your life so Much easier and you're going to feel Like wow why didn't I try this before Now this is the next hack that like I Said this what I've already shown you is I wouldn't necessarily call it a hack But it's a technique that will Definitely work for you but this one is A hack this is where we're going to mix Our foundation in with a gel based Primer and now apply it on top so you're Probably wondering well why didn't I Apply the primer beforehand you could Apply it beforehand but this hack gives You a super smooth finish so when you're Doing something like under painting like This and then you go over with your Foundation mixed in with your primer it Actually gives you a much smoother Finish and it just kind of like avoids It looking so heavy that primer also Helps to kind of like keep everything in Place like even better so I'm mixing my Nars sheer glow foundation in with my

Gel based primer I've got my sponge and I'm now going to take some of this Product buff it into the back of my hand And I'm going to start going over my Face And you're going to see that all of this Kind of like under this sculpting that We did is all going to come through You're going to still see it but just Not as kind of like harsh See how that's still coming through now I haven't done my eyelids but what I'm Going to do is whatever's left on this Sponge I'm just going to take it over my Eyelid so we don't need to go over with Such heavy concealer And because there's a primer kind of Mixed in that's going to help to keep it All in place too so that's your next Little hack use the residue for the Eyelids because the primer will help to Keep it like purple now we're going to Set this so I'm just going to take my Powder and basically press this in first Off I'm going to do my Lids here And then very quickly dust this off There you go my Lids are done now now I'm just doing my under eyes And I'm not doing anywhere else so I'm Gonna dust This off Now what you can do which is what I do This is a little hack for you I

Basically use the powder on all the Areas that I know are going to end up Creasing up like for example here You know on the sides of the nose So I do that and I leave all the other Areas because I kind of want a slightly Kind of healthy glow finish there but I Don't want to add highlight so what I Actually do is I use my blush to give me That highlight and I'll explain how in a Second now that we've done this you can See that that Contour that sculpting is Still coming through so hopefully that's Shown you how that can make a huge Difference with the finished look of the Face and honestly this is going to stay Put now because we've mixed that gel Primer in with that foundation and our Concealer is sitting right at the bottom Just after our moisturizer so that Primer is also going to help to like Keep everything in now I'm going to take The makeup by Mario soft sculpt shaping Stick and this one is in dark and the Reason I'm not using a concealer here is Because I actually don't want this to be There's no coverage involved it's just Kind of like just contouring it's not Any coverage and I'm not fussed about Like staying power or anything like this Now what I'm going to do is take my Finger here on the stick and I'm going To apply Press just on my upper lip line

And also there So I've basically applied it focus on Pressing actually on the lip line so Right at the top and right at the bottom And what that's going to do is that's Going to actually make my lips look Bigger that way so that's giving it a Very very subtle Shadow there that's Going to help to make the lips look a Little bit bigger now I'm going to take My makeup forever artist color pencil in Anywhere caffeine and I'm now going to Line my lips as normal but what I'm Going to do is actually go kind of on The upper part of my lip line so don't Go on the lip line but very tiny bit Above but not so much that you're Missing your lip line and then Everywhere else like on the sides we're Going to stick to our normal natural lip Line I'm only going to focus on this and This section being a little bit above Like tiny bit on the top part of the lip Line Okay now I'm going to go on my normal Lip line Okay we've lined the lips you can Already see how that helped that shadow That we put initially has helped to make The lips look bigger better now I'm Gonna just smudge it kind of like Inwards And this little technique gives you a Really kind of like natural lip line it

Doesn't look like oh wow she's overlined Her lips so always like smudge the lip Line a little bit now instead of using Lipstick what I do is I use a lip balm This is actually my rode peptide lip Treatment A little bit in the center there And that is your little hack for very Natural looking plump lips so you don't Have to go through the whole lip liner Thing of making it look very strong and Like harsh like you it can look very Natural but we've still managed to make The lips look much bigger I am going to Very quickly do my brows and I'm using My Goof Proof powder and this is just so That we can get on with the next hack so I am literally just gonna very quickly Do this to give me a second Now that my brows are done I'm going to Move on to the eye hack I'm going to be Using a sculpting stick to actually Create an eyeshadow look so I'm using my Makeup by Mario soft sculpt in dark and I'm going to use my e45 brush this is in My brush set from Sigma Beauty you also Have a discount code that you can use on That brush set it's an eye set which I Recommend because I use these brushes All the time so many different eye looks That you can create with it and they're All in one set much cheaper than buying Them individually so make sure you check That out it's in the description below

And I'm going to use this brush to Basically apply this to my eyelid now What I'm going to be doing is creating Like a really nice feline look so I'm Going to start from The end of my lash line And very lightly Drag it out And I'm kind of like creating a darker Outer corner of the lid So I want this whole section here to be Kind of nice and Smoky with this brown Shade now the reason this is a hack is Because what you're doing is you're Using a sculpting stick that you're Already happy with in terms of the color Complementing your skin tone so this Actually makes this whole eye look look Way more kind of natural you know Sometimes you struggle and you can use Your finger as well by the way to blend You know sometimes you struggle to find The right kind of Browns for a smoky eye Look the trick is is go for your Sculpting products anything you use to Kind of sculpt your face because it's Just the perfect brown to be able to Like give you that really nice sculpted Look without using looking like Terracotta or like too orangey on your Skin it's perfect for your eyes to Create a really soft sculpted look on The eyes or a soft Smoky look okay so Now that we've done that I'm going to do

The other side as well so I always kind Of like go inwards and then I like Gradually fade it out I am so happy with this so what I'm Going to do now is take a smaller brush From Sigma and I'm going to take this Underneath my eyes here like into my Kind of like Lower lash line Now what I'm going to do is take my Concealer that I use so I'm using my Nars soft matte concealer in ginger I'm Using my E55 brush and I'm going to take A little bit onto this brush put it onto The back of my hand this is going to Really open up the eye so what I'm going To do is like take this along The beginning of the like lid Not really focusing on going above the Crease And just tapering it into that end part That we applied of that dark shade And then using my finger to kind of like Blend it and what this does it stops the Whole eye looking so dark so it just Opens it up a bit And you can also take this on the inner Corner Just to brighten up that area now if You're worried about that creasing go Into your setting powder with your Real Techniques setting brush very light Dusting of powder I'm basically just Dust it on top of this and that's going

To help to set it but you've got that Really nice kind of like Smoky look that Looks like you haven't actually got Eyeshadow on so that's the great thing This is a great hack because what it is Is it's basically infusing that Eyeshadow look into your base so you're Not actually applying any kind of like Powder eyeshadow or cream eyeshadow You're applying concealer like a Sculpting stick and it's melting right Into the skin and then you're setting it With powder so it's just part of your Whole look everything is one if you want You can add eyeshadow on top just as Like an eyeliner for example I'm going To use my Sigma eyeliner brush which is In my eye kit and I'm using my beauty Bay nude 16 color eye palette I'm going To use the black here and I'm basically Going to create a little wing Because I really want to show you how Once you've done this eye base How you can just Carry on with eyeliner or whatever you Want on top So I use my finger to just drag it out If I need to But I'm happy with that I don't hit the Eyeliner all the way across because I Just feel like I don't need it Now another little hack I'm going to Show you is you're going to take that Black eyeshadow we're going to use the

BK Beauty 204 brush and I'm going to Press into that black eyeshadow and what I'm going to do is push it into my upper Lash line but from the bottom part of The Lash And That's going to really give the illusion Of thicker lashes So if you feel like sometimes your whole Look like your eyeliner your mascara can Look a little bit disconnected from your Upper lash line Use this little hack And it's going to work wonders for you So what this does Is because we didn't actually apply that Eyeliner all the way in we only applied It from the out like half part like the Last half of the eyelid what this does Is it stops that eyeliner from also Looking disconnected because what you've Got is it looks like you've just got Ultra ultra thin eyeliner all the way Across but you haven't actually applied Anything to the upper lash line so if You look here look how thicker that like How much thicker that looks and look at This right so now what we're going to do Is do the same here really press it into The Upper lashes you really want to focus Into the root of the Lash You're kind of painting the lower lash Line but from underneath from the root

Outwards I'm going to clean this brush And I'm actually using my brush pad from Sigma which is a part of my eye kit by The way that you can get from Sigma Beauty using ub10 you'll get discount Off of that as well so this comes in the Eye eyeshadow set will the eyeshadow Brush sap and it basically means that You don't need to kind of wash your Brush well you obviously do eventually But if you're doing different looks and You want to use the same brush you can Take the product off and that was black Right and now there's nothing on this Brush so now what I'm going to do is Take that brown and I'm going to Basically do that exact same thing put On my lower lashes so what I'm doing is Touching the top part Of the root of my lash I'm pressing into The root rather than going on the skin What this is doing is actually Thickening like making your lower lash Line look a bit more defined without Actually applying eyeshadow on your skin So this is another little Hack for you I love how this gives you Definition without actually having to Apply eyeshadow on the skin because it Doesn't look like oh yeah like when you Go close up like oh she's got eyeshadow There it just looks like how did you Define that without it looking so harsh

I'm going to use my Mac stack mascara Now and I'm just going to apply this From the root of my lash Really kind of like focusing on More of a kind of like winged lash so Focusing on the outer part more I'm Still applying it all over but really Focusing on this end section here This one scar is really good for just Quick and easy mascara without having to Spend too much time on your lashes So hopefully that's shown you how you Can like utilize different hacks to Create this kind of eye look or Something similar I personally love this Type of eye look it's refeline looks Really kind of sultry it's nice and it Doesn't look obvious like when you come Close up it doesn't look like wow like She's got so much eyeshadow on now I'm Going to add some blush I'm going to be Using a liquid blush from beauty Bay Called Reef now it's very very pigmented So what I'm going to be doing is adding This to the back of my hand and it's Quite a neon shade I don't want it to be So obvious on my skin so what I'm going To be doing is taking my Foundation that I used taking a tiny drop of that and Kind of mixing it into that blush now Taking the back Of my beauty blender And I'm gonna add it just here and Because I didn't apply powder on these

Bits like I left it quite Kind of like Bare not so much powder because I wanted This to give me that kind of like glowy Look and because we waited a while after We've set the face It kind of like brings out a really nice Glow to the face I like that Now the part that I'm really kind of Interested in you guys understanding About the blush hack is two parts one is Mixing it with foundation so it looks Like it's just sitting into your skin Number two is that you actually apply a Little bit on your under eye area here Not right there but more kind of here And what that does is it helps to give You more of a lifted look It actually helps to take the attention Away from Darkness on the under eye area So that's a little another hack for you So applying it a little bit on the under Eye area again not in the center of the Face more towards this area takes your Attention away from any kind of Hollowness or darkness of the under eye Area so I hope that helps you too now Another little thing you can do is take A bit of that concealer and blush mix And just kind of press it we've already Done our lips but this is so that you Have that kind of like undertone to it Which kind of almost matches your cheeks

But it doesn't you know when you don't Want that kind of matchy-matchy look so You don't want to add the same color on Your lips you just want to kind of add Almost like a tinge of color so it's Very very almost like a watercolor so Our lips are already done and the point Is is once they're done if you've got That lip balm on you can just add a tiny Bit of that color where it's actually Not so visible just to the center and Then what it does is it's basically the Same shade but a different transparency Of it so it's very very light in Comparison to the blush that you have on Your cheeks but it's still from the same Color so this last hack is something for Those of you who want to be adventurous With your bold or bright eyeshadow Colors but you actually don't want to Attract extra attention you don't want Unnecessary attention you don't want Anyone looking at you thinking oh my God She's wearing blue eyeshadow yellow Eyeshadow whatever you just want to kind Of blend in in the background and just Have a little bit of Adventure Adventurous kind of like play around With your eye makeup but you don't want It to be too obvious this is a good way To wear bright bold eye colors but in a Subtle way so I'm going to be using that Peacock shade in this eyeshadow palette Which is actually from fluoresis and

It's probably the most beautiful palette I've ever seen in my life it's the Floral engraving Phoenix makeup palette I will be doing a kind of another Tutorial using this palette I haven't Managed to yet but I'm going to use my BK Beauty 204 brush dip it into that Peacock shade and now what I'm going to Be doing is applying this on my Waterline so pressing down into the Lush On my lower left And there's a couple of different ways You can do this So you can press like I have there Hopefully you guys couldn't see this So there's two ways you can do this Either you can do what I've just done Which is you do it in the center of the Water line on the lower lash line press Into the waterline into the root of your Lower lash and that's enough and leave It at that so you've got this little Section here right in the middle because It's eyeshadow it let the edges are not Solid so it's not like a pencil where It's like you can see the star in the End it's an eyeshadow so it's very Subtle on the edges the edges are Already going to be soft once we apply It with a brush so you can actually use Your finger if you want to too but I Would suggest using a brush you apply on Your waterline drag it into the root of The lower lash and then you're done so

You could apply it just there like I Have there I think that's actually quite A nice effect it's not the obvious all The way across just in the center there Or you can apply it all the way across And then you've got a bit more it's a Bit more obvious then but not as obvious As applying it on your upper eyelid so This is a good way to kind of use color On your eyes without it looking like Crazy or too much like I'm I'm that Person I don't like wearing overly Bright eyeshadows I don't like it Looking like putting it all over my Whole lid it's not really me and unless I'm going to an event or something like I you know day to day or if I'm like I Don't know going on date night with my Husband I don't want it to be all in I Just want maybe something but something That's really subtle so this is another Thing that you can do it's a really easy Way of infusing color into your eye Makeup without it looking overly Dramatic so yeah I hope that you have Enjoyed this whole look and that all the Hacks that you've really like kind of Like learned throughout this whole look It was definitely fun for me to create And I hope you guys have loved it as Much as I have and if you like this Video please do give it a thumbs up Don't forget to subscribe to my channel And hit the Bell button so that you
