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