Hi, my name is Teddy Quinlivan
00:02
and today I'm going to be teaching you
00:03
how to get a total (beep) look
00:05
with my (beep) makeup tutorial.
00:10
When I'm putting on makeup in the morning,
00:12
I think it's really important
00:14
to start with really good skin care.
00:18
There's nothing worse than somebody who has a crusty face.
00:22
Tap in your moisturizer to clean skin.
00:28
I think the next step is to go into your base.
00:31
Or, for some people if you need it, it's a primer.
00:33
I don't use a primer because I'm naturally flawless
00:37
and I don't need the extra layer,
00:38
but I mean there are some people out there
00:40
who really need that extra help, so.
00:42
I've been doing this really interesting thing lately
00:44
where I apply powder before I apply my concealer
00:49
and for whatever reason,
00:50
it helps the concealer stick a little bit better,
00:53
for me personally and, like,
00:55
looks a little bit more natural
00:56
than if I was setting it afterwards.
00:58
You take her on a fluffy brush
01:04
and you're just gonna kind of blend
01:06
the powder into your moisturizer.
01:08
And don't forget to remove
01:10
the hairs from your makeup brush on your face,
01:13
or else you'll look stupid.
01:18
We're gonna go in with this Clé de Peau concealer.
01:21
You can use this basically anywhere, which is so nice,
01:24
on top of zits, underneath your eyes, like, whatever.
01:27
We're gonna use it on my whole face today
01:29
because I think for a day look,
01:31
I really don't like to wear foundation during the daytime
01:34
because I think it makes your skin look kind of artificial.
01:37
As artificial as I already am, I don't want people knowing
01:41
and that's part of the great things of makeup is,
01:44
you can conceal the fact that you're actually a hag.
01:49
No boy is gonna want to make out with you,
01:51
or girl, for that matter,
01:53
if your lips look (beep), so.
01:55
I think it would be kind of funny
01:56
if it had all those beeps, you know?
01:58
Like, when on Maury when they all swear
02:00
and there's, like, a beep, or something.
02:02
It's just like me.
02:05
So we're just gonna move on to the next step in the face
02:08
and that step is to contour.
02:12
So we're going to use this M.A.C. Pro Shade called Taupe
02:17
and it's what everyone uses backstage to contour.
02:20
It was, like, one of the first
02:21
contour products available to me, personally.
02:24
So taking a fluffy blending brush,
02:27
we're going to just pack some taupe onto there
02:31
and we're gonna lightly sculpt your cheekbones
02:37
to make it look like you have them.
02:39
And I have a big-ass forehead,
02:41
so I don't want to look disgusting,
02:43
so we're just gonna apply some of that
02:45
and it also is nice too because it, like,
02:49
it brings that color from here up
02:50
into this region of your face
02:52
and if you only have that kind of color
02:55
in one spot of your face and not in another,
02:58
it's gonna look really weird.
02:59
And then maybe a little bit on your jawline.
03:02
Oh, and a little bit on your neck too.
03:06
You're going to take that taupe that you put on your cheeks
03:09
and also put it in the socket of your eye
03:12
and this is going to be your eyeshadow, essentially.
03:16
Because in the daytime, for me, personally,
03:20
I don't like to wear a big eye look all the time,
03:24
and this is just a nice way to get a subtle definition.
03:27
You want to make it look like you have that natural facelift
03:30
and the way that you do that is just
03:32
by blending everything up and out.
03:34
And then you're gonna take the taupe underneath.
03:37
Voila!
03:40
I'm using the Surratt eyelash curler,
03:43
which is my personal favorite one.
03:45
Okay, so the next step in completing your day (beep) look
03:50
is to put on this Cream Color Base from M.A.C.
03:55
and it's called Shaded Dusk
03:56
and we're just gonna put a little bit of this on the lid
04:01
and it just creates a little bit of dewiness and shine
04:04
and intensifies that taupe-y eye color
04:06
that you've already put on.
04:11
The next step is going to be applying
04:15
just a little bit of blush to your cheeks.
04:18
I'm using this cream blush from M.A.C.
04:20
and it's called Bamboo,
04:24
or as I would like to call it, bam (beep).
04:27
And so using a stippling brush, we're just going to stipple
04:30
the Bamboo shade onto our cheeks, but just slightly.
04:33
I like a cream because it blends really nicely,
04:37
like, the look is a stone cold (beep).
04:39
And a stone cold (beep) isn't blushing,
04:41
she's just blushing from being furious at everyone
04:43
for being such a big, you know, (beep) let down.
04:49
We're going to be using this Marc Jacobs highlight,
04:54
I don't know what it's called.
04:55
It's called Spotlight Glow Stick
04:57
and I love this one because it's creamy
05:00
and you just apply this
05:01
to the top of the cheekbones, like so.
05:07
And this is really nice too because it's, like,
05:09
a natural highlight because, like,
05:11
you don't want to be, like, a matte (beep),
05:13
you want to be a dewy (beep)
05:14
because you don't want anyone coming for your matte skin,
05:17
you want people to think you're, like, rude but glowy.
05:20
And so now you're going to take your putty highlight
05:22
and you're going to apply it to your inner corners,
05:25
just to give you a more, kind of, like snatched look.
05:29
And then you also want to take some of this
05:31
and apply it to your Cupid's bow.
05:33
And then, also apply some of the highlight
05:35
above the brow bone because it will make
05:37
your eyebrows look more lifted and more, like, angry.
05:43
So the final step is to brush up your eyebrows
05:48
because when you're being rude to somebody
05:52
and your eyebrows are lopsided,
05:54
they're not gonna take what you're saying seriously.
05:57
I look in the mirror every day after I've done my B
06:00
and, like, placed the makeup and,
06:02
like, you know, smacked my face real good
06:05
with the powders and the creams
06:06
and the lotions and the potions
06:08
and I just look in the mirror and I think,
06:10
this is the best we can do
06:12
and I'm gonna be late for my shoot,
06:14
so better walk out the door.
