I'll start by prepping my lips with a lip balm that one has for you. I suggested this is from jack black and it is the intense therapy lip balm. It's funny because I've always seen these like the old tech checkout counter and I've always wanted to try this but I've never tried it before so I'm just going to go ahead and apply this on the lips this is menthol oh I like ok we are going to do the complexion first today I got it pretty simple on my mind so I'm going to start with the primer ok so one of you suggested the pore perfecting foundation from Revlon and then someone else said photo foundation and you said it was the rose.

gems

so many foundations were suggested for foundation but specifically to the people on this foundation . and i did a full review on this foundation months and months ago and honestly i haven't used it for months so i wanted to use it again it's Revlon Photoready Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation.

I am going to use shade 150. This is one of those products that has spent so much time on. I don't know how I feel about it, so let's try it. I did about a pump and a half on the back of my hand. I'll start by taking that with a real techniques buffing brush and start applying it to the skin this shade is perfect for me ok and once it's evenly distributed I'll use this sponge here recommended by one of you said walmart sponge it's equate brand so i got this little equate sponge set and i hope this is what they were talking about the set was very inexpensive it was not 98 cents for three sponges but i couldn't find just one so i hope this be the same sponge you were talking about and i will use it all over the skin to press that foundation and help it look more natural. gosh yeah this is such a pretty foundation i had completely forgotten what this looks like on t the skin is super nice oh my gosh and even on top of that primer its like a flawless almost matte finish but i really like that these videos be like my favorites to film where i try your suggestions and there were actually so many products shipped if you like this drugstore version let me know if you'd like to see a part two because i can literally do a whole separate video trying one side Full of other products that you guys suggested were your hidden

gems

so let me know I'll keep making these videos for as long as you guys want to watch them.
I personally enjoy them so much that they don't have to convince me to make them, but I just want to make sure they want to see them. them before I do it right I'm actually going to do a little bit of cream contour and then we're going to do concealer I've been doing this um a little bit recently where if I'm using a cream bronzer I'll do it right after a foundation and before of the concealer because I find that I end up using less concealer that way and someone suggested this that I was so excited to try.
I got my little cheat sheet here when she said Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick was amazing for contouring and doesn't wear on all skin. I love it and you think it blends really well so I wanted to try it out. It's the Maybelline Fit Me foundation stick and I chose the toffee shade. I hope this is a good contour shade for me. I guess we'll find out. I'm just going to put this all over the face. I'm not quite sure if I'd like to take it directly from here and then blur it out. Maybe I should have done it too late.
Now I'm just going to take my Real Techniques contour. brush and i'm going to start working that into the skin oh wow that is blending beautifully. I never would have thought of doing this so seriously. These are like my favorite videos to shoot because I learned so much. jawline a little bit and then we're going to do a little bit around the sides of the nose and a little bit underneath and I'll take the brush to blend this outline and then I'll start to blend this out with the brush but I'm going to go in with my sponge because it's got a little bit left foundation, so I'm going to smooth and soften the lines with this that I almost forgot under the chin.
I'm going to go over the whole face with the same sponge to make sure it stays right and blended everywhere now keep in mind we don't have concealer yet so I know it looks a little funny right now let's lighten the center of the face and it will definitely look more even so there was a crease concealer that I really wanted to try what it was called it was called the Catrice One Drop Coverage Concealer. I'm going to have to order it online and maybe I can try it out in my next version of this video if they want me to and the other concealer that was suggested was the Catrice liquid concealer which I'm assuming is the Catrice liquid camouflage this is another product that I have and that i have used before and i dont remember my thoughts on it to be honest oh they are both the same shade ok i am going to take the natural light shade and i am going to use this to hide my under eye area.
I'm going to highlight the sides of the nose, the center of the chin, the forehead, and the bottom of the nose. I'm also going to correct some of the blemishes along the jawline. line and I'll also use it to reverse the outline here, okay, and then I'll take the smallest sponge from that equivalent set and start blending all of this together. I don't remember if this is a concealer that dries fast or if I have time to work with it, so in case it's working fast and I really feel like I used concealer, especially under the eyes when I contour first, it's been a fun little trick i've been doing recently ok honestly i'm really liking my complexion right now as up close it looks very natural feels very light on the skin and i really like the warmth and definition that the cream contour it gave my face so far so good guys i'm really liking it alright this was a suggestion when i read it i thought oh my gosh i used to do that all the time and it's been forever so there were a couple of you guys who actually said nyx hd banana finishing powder is great for under eye area.
I used to do this like every day. I used to swear by this and haven't used it in a long time so wanted to use it again. In fact, I'm just going to take my damp sponge because that's how I used to get under my eyes. I used to take a sponge. straight into the pan and then I would just press this under my eyes and it used to be my favorite thing in the world so I'm so excited to try it again oh yeah it's super nice sometimes I wonder why I stopped using this . things that I feel like this whole year like 2020 I'm obviously going to review ng new products for me personally I'm so interested in reaching for what I have I don't know I feel like I'm getting to a point as a consumer where I really like to enjoy what I have in my collection I have so much makeup and for some reason I always feel like I need to buy more to keep up but I really don't unless I love it and I feel like it will make me very happy but other than that I like it I don't need a lots of makeup so i really want to try and do more videos where i like to repurpose products more like a full face of nothing new type of style videos buy my stash type of videos you know where its more about the look of makeup than it is about tons of new makeup.
I really want to do more of that this year. Obviously, I will check new things. I still like to do that, but I want to start moving to more like I don't know. the product you know anyway that was a bit of a rant ok for the rest of the face im going to use number 7 p perfect light loose powder now three of you said this was your hidden gem powder and i love this powder this is another powder i used to use every day and it's been so long so i'm so happy you suggested it because it will allow me to revisit and try again and hopefully fall in love with it again, so i'll just take this.
I'm going to set up the rest of the face with that. I always like to set up my cream products with a powder and I actually have another as a bronzer. I'm going to test well so far so good. I feel my complexion looks good. Very happy for everything. It's okay. The next step when I read the suggestion. I was baffled and am very excited to try this. because I don't know why I never thought of this with this product because if you've been with me if you've watched my videos for the last two years it's no secret that I love nude sheer essence highlighter but someone said to use highlighter as a finishing powder for the whole face and I said to myself why haven't I tried it so that's what I'm going to do today.
I'm going to take my powder brush. I'm just going to take a little bit of this. I'm not sure how pigmented it will be. all over my face so i'm just taking a tiny bit and i'm going to buff this all over my face which seems to be against the rules because it's a highlighter but with this highlighter it's not as pigmented as it needs to be. which is one of the reasons i like it, that's why i don't know why i had never considered using it as an amazing finishing powder, oh my god it's working. but i feel like it added that glow back to the skin oh my gosh so cool i love it thanks for sharing that tip we are going to do some highlighter and the most suggested highlighters were sheer essence nude which is the one i U.S. i just used and also the revolution and soph highlighter palette i've used this palette e in a couple of these guys guys videos because you guys suggested it over and over again three of you said but this was your hidden gem so the i will be using again since i had it and some of the other highlighters that were mentioned i am going to have to order online so i thought i would just use this one today and if i remember correctly someone said the purple highlighter on here was as your favourite, i hope i remember it correctly, so indeed i will. use this one you know it's a little risky but i'll do it here we go.
Oh, for some reason, I always imagined the lavender shade to be like super purple, it's not really. wearable I'm just going to put that around the forehead area here I'm going to do a little bit in the center of the nose a little bit in the back they're both really nice I like it a lot it's good for blush oh wait I haven't done it yet bronzer as a powder bronzer is ok i go all over the place ok there are two bronzers i picked up not sure which one i am going to use or if i will use both because they both seem to be too deep for my skin but these were like the only options , well this was the lightest shade of this one here so this is the NYX matte bronzer one of you said this was your hidden gem and this is not the medium shade I don't know if you had a light one I didn't see it even on the shelf so I think this was the lightest shade they had but I wanted to try it but also someone said uLTA Beauty Baked Bronzer was one of their hidden gems and I love baked goods so i really wanted to try this too, maybe i will layer them, ah, what should i do? a little bit of that on a bronzer brush and i'm going to start to build that up on the face it's actually blending really well it definitely has a little more of that warm terra cotta undertone which sometimes doesn't work on me because of my skin tone , but I feel like this is working pretty well considering it's the medium shade, I'm going to go back to my fluffy brush that we were using with all the powders and I'm going to make sure to blend everything really welli want to try some of this baked bronzer so i wish my luck i hope its not too dark a little dark for me we will look really tan but i really wanted to try it oh no its too dark for me. of a keishon.
I'm taking my brush again and just buffing it out yes both shades are definitely shades I would probably hit when I have self tanner on or more in the summer months but as far as the formula goes from what I can say is both blend it really really good and i can see a little bit of that glow that the baked bronzer gave which i really like so formula wise right now i really like the color i wish it was a little lighter on me but i feel like it would definitely work if you have more medium skin it's ok for blush this was specifically suggested and i was really excited because i've been really into revlon blushes recently it's the revlon blush in the shade not a nude it looks like a kind of beige EPL so pretty for every day so i was really excited to see what color this was when i was buying it today at walmart it looks like something that would go a long way so i got it I buffed with a blush brush touched on the extra and I really don't know how pigmented this is quite pigmented okay we're just going to buff this all over the cheeks it's a really nice blush I'm just going to blend and tone it down a bit for my undertone skin to make it look a little more natural on my pale face wow my skin looks super healthy and fresh and tanned and everything i love it actually ok let's go ahead and move on to the brows one of you suggested the color pop brow pencil and i had this in my collection its another one of those products where i literally cant remember how i feel about it so this is not the light brown shade.
I don't know if I need a darker shade, maybe that's okay, so I'm just going to fill in the brows with this. I just lost the spoolie, it's sort of stuck on the lid and just ripped off from the bottom so I'll have to use a different spoolie but I like how this applies to the brows. I feel like I could get away with it. a bit deeper shade but it works and i like the feathered edge it adds to the brows as you look at the front i think it looks great ok there are the brows for now i might touch it up later but i really liked how that applied and i really liked the effect i was able to get with that formula la and with this pencil i could jump on color-pop and buy another one of these and see if the shade range has one that is a little deeper but this one works definitely doesn't work for me but yeah I really liked that it moved As for the eyeshadow when I saw this suggestion I knew I had to try it so someone said CoverGirl shimmering sands eyeshadow has been their hidden gem for 15 years and That made me want to try it. the covergirl palette in shimmering sands and it looks like a really cool everyday palette so i wanted to use this as the base line for my makeup book today for my eye look i guess ok i forgot to open this up before i put on in front of the camera wait ok so i'll take a little fluffy brush and start with this shade right here in the center and start buffing that into the curry now all three shades are shimmers i normally wear i won't put glitters in my crease but i want ed to test this palette like this so we'll see how it all turns out well i'm going to go ahead and deepen that with the dark shade and the palette i'm going to add that to this outer corner here and then move it towards the crease a little bit plus it just adds a little bit of dimension ok i'm taking that deep shade and now building it on the lid to create more of a full color and it's very very nice it's a very soft shimmer this is very perfect for everyday i'm going to take that deep shade again and just pinch the brush and use it to define the lower lash line which is really pretty what i like about this dark shade here usually the shades Like this one they might intimidate most people, but this one is very, very wearable and really great for every day. to go you can see why it was a staple in her routine for so long it's so nice ok I'm going to go ahead and highlight the inner corner and brow bone using the lightest shade of the bunch this one from here.
I'm going to go ahead and place it under the brow, oh wow that's pigmented. I will also use it in the inner corner. here's ok i feel like that gave me a really good base for the next product i'm going to use which is chrome eyeshadow melt essence let's see how many of you said this ok there were at least three of you who they suggested these eyeshadows and essence they were actually sent to me recently and i didn't try them until recently. I used them on um was that vacation tutorial I just posted other than that I haven't used them before this one is in the shade 0 -2 ironic and I'm going to be using this on all lips so let's amp up the look should i do a halo eye maybe yes?
I'm going to press this on the center of the eyelid I felt like this one would go really well with the covergirl eyeshadows so I'm going to press this o On the eyes ooh I really like that color wow how pretty how bright it is It's so pretty again. I'm going to use my fingers to blend the edges and then I want to take that brush that we were using to highlight the inner corner. and i'm going to dip it right into the melted chrome shadow and i want a little bit of that kind of shadow on the center of my lower lash line to intensify that halo effect it actually looks super pretty and all those colors really blend together , alright ummm I like it ok so three of you also said L'Oreal infallible eyeliners were some of your hidden gems someone specifically said navy was your hidden gem I hope this be the right one because L'Oreal has others wait lemme see if I can find them here hmm I don't know if I have them on my desk L'Oreal has other surefire ones and I don't know if this was the Navy one you're talking about that hopefully , lets give it a twist i used to b I am obsessed with navy blue eyeliner so that is what made me so excited to try this one so i will just grab this one.
I'm going to outline the entire upper lash line. actually it almost looks like a black from afar but obviously when you look at it up close you can see that navy blue hue and i'm stopping at the edge. I'm not really doing like a wing or anything that's really really pretty I really like it ok we'll put on some mascara this is another one of those products I had in my collection because it was sent to me and I think that I liked when I tried it, no However, remember that I am going to try it again.
It's Covergirl's LashBlast Amplification Primer. This is one of the things that was a hidden gem for one of you. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I remember trying this because it's more like a cream base. instead of your typical white so I'm going to go ahead and apply this it always looks so crazy when you put it on just a mascara primer but lash primer can really make a world of difference obviously it has to be the right kind of formula for your lashes but i've noticed when i use a lash primer it really helps before i move on to mascara i'm going to quickly remove the eyeshadow that fell off they look crazy right now ok , two of you suggested l'oreal unlimited mascara guys this is another one of those products that was sent to me forever ago.
I bought a new one. because the others are probably expired by now and i remember trying it on a video like once but i don't remember how i felt about it so here we are i'll try again so this is the unlimited mascara here's the bottle remember this specifically because you can remove this right here and we'll double the mascara which I think is great so let's go ahead and buy this over the lashes shall we? It's a little weird to get used to this curvature but it's actually very helpful ok I'm going to straighten the wand for the bottom lashes wow that made my lashes look huge it has an almost waxy feel really interesting but not in a bad way for to use it just sticks and adheres to existing mascara and builds on itself it's so nice oh my god what the heck so the real test for me with mascara is to see if it smudges or flakes a throughout the day.
I hope is not like that. Unfortunately, I don't have time to do a wear test today, but I'll leave a note about this skin and maybe anything else I can. check out how i wear it for the rest of the night in the description box if you're curious because i want to know how to wear that mask ok my lips feel extremely hydrated and primed perfect for the next step which is lips to people, specifically said this shade of lip liner so i knew i had to try it This is the nyx lip liner in the shade of nude suede shoes.
I'm going to remove any foundation that is on the lips. There isn't much today, but I want to keep some of that balm. Im going to line and film the lip with this wow this is such a great color my lips are so dry right now guys its driving me crazy i probably need to wear that lip balm for the rest of the day but my lips and hands have been so dry this winter they're cracked, it's the worst. I'm going to try to make my lips look as good as possible considering the circumstances here. I love that colour.
Wow okay there was a lipstick I really wanted to try since May and it was sold out at two Walmarts I went to two Walmarts to try and find it I couldn't so I'll try that lipstick if you guys want to see another version of this video later but for now for today's video I'm going to try the elf clear lip gloss this is just the elf lip lacquer I'm guessing this is the clear lip gloss It's my hope that we're just going to apply a layer right over the liner lip ok wait I feel like I need to redo my lips because I'm sure I'd like to exfoliate dry skin a bit maybe that lip balm will hydrogenate my lips so much that all the - just finished ok, let's do it again ok yeah that's already so much better ok your lip liner and now we're going back to elf sheer gloss which doesn't really feel like your typical gloss.
It gives you that shine but it has a little more of a lip balm feel to it which I think is nice ok i love how fresh my makeup looks. I'm going to go ahead and remove any amazing mascara marks ok so for setting spray one of you suggested honest beauty a hydration mist or hydrating mist and i've had this for a while it was sent to me and i never tried it though I've always wanted to do it, so I felt like this was the perfect opportunity, okay, I'm going to take a step back and assess the situation first, even though I don't think I need it. mineral bronzer today probably because the bronzers were pretty deep in tone so i think i'm fine.
I'm going to go ahead and spray the hydration mist and then I have a trick that I'm actually going to show you now because I'm going to have to get in pretty quick after I get my face done but this was actually one of the most recommended um highlighters well i think two of you said this was your drugstore hidden gem it's maybelline chrome master fused rose gold illuminator and one person specifically said you like to use it as a blush topper after setting spray i thought it was really brilliant so that's what i'm going to do today so first let's set the face with the honest heightened hydration mist Beauty whoa hmm it smells like essential oils ok something just spray me in the eye ok we were having a moment of fine mist and then it sprayed me oh ok i think that's good actually it feels really good i'm going to use my right hand i have to find my sponge i'm just going to dry all ng off and use this to press it all down into the skin really nicely next I'm going to take a little blush brush with the Maybelline highlighter on it.
I'm going to press lightly and do that mmm. I am going to try using it as a blush topper. ooh ooh pretty i like that you guys have the best tips and tricks when it comes to makeup i love it ok last but not least my friends three of you all said NYX tinted brow mascara i recently tried on another video where I was testing something. What was it? It was a video where I was testing something that was suggested to me, so it seems that this product is quite popular with all of you. This is the brown tone.
I will only use it to set the eyebrows. a few above my brow that worked pretty well i need to add a little more coverage with my sponge today ok guys that completes my face using the hidden gems from the drugstore. I have to say that I really love how fresh my skin looks. I feel like everything looks very natural and very wearable, which is something I always look for when it comes to makeup. This all looks so good. I will say that I am remembering what I felt about that Revlon foundation and whatI remember that it is not. it's going to be a foundation that will look like a foundation you can see some of my impurities still visible in the areas where i didn't apply concealer and honestly i'm totally okay with that everyday i actually really like it i feel al just like she adds that she's wearing a makeup vibe even though I'm obviously wearing makeup but I'm actually really excited to keep wearing that I enjoyed everything guys I'm especially enjoying the mascara the formula was really interesting the lip blend is actually looks beautiful i love the lip liner and that lip gloss is really interesting it's like a liquid lip balm almost it's a little stickier than a lip balm but it goes more towards that end and makes my lips look really soft guys i really enjoyed everything i tried today umm only thing i will say is the shades bronzers were a little too deep other than that i cant see myself reaching or many of these over and over again. and about the sponge it was great too you guys I love these videos I love making these videos because I always find new things that I love and get excited about thanks to you guys so thanks again to everyone who sent in their hidden gems.
