  • just kidding hi guys welcome back to graceful beauty my name is sherry and

  • today I wanted to share with you something a little bit different I

  • wanted to share with you how I used to do my makeup compared to how I do my

  • makeup now as a mature woman I know there's a bunch of videos like this out

  • there already on YouTube but I thought I would just do something kind of fun

  • today and mix it up a little bit instead of

  • just putting on my makeup in the same way I always do I wanted to share some

  • tips and tricks and some things that I am really guilty of but maybe these are

  • some things that you guys might feel like you're guilty of also these are

  • things that make us look a little bit older than we want to be if you're not

  • subscribed to my channel but you would like to be don't forget to look down

  • below and tap on that subscribe button and if you do like this video I hope

  • you'll also give it a thumbs up some of these things that I'm going to share

  • with you today I probably will still continue to do them even though I know

  • they're probably wrong but because that's what I like and that's what makes

  • me look happy and that's really all that matters

  • honestly are they're really rules in makeup you know just put your makeup on

  • however you want except for the very first step that I'm going to share so

  • the very first step in your makeup application is also your very last step

  • in your skincare routine and it should be done every single day of the year

  • rain or shine even if you're indoors outdoors it doesn't matter but that's

  • applying a sunscreen this video is not gonna be about specific brands it's just

  • the product in general so you can use whatever sunscreen you want the problem

  • with sunscreen that I think a lot of us are doing that could be aging us I see a

  • lot of people go like this this little amount right here as literally all they

  • apply to their whole face and then you know they'll rub it on and put little

  • dots and then they'll say help Brian so Matt you come on out to get a little go

  • alright I already have a load of sunscreen on by the way so I'm not gonna

  • put a whole nother amount on if you want to know how much sunscreen I normally

  • use watch my very last video I'll link it down below and I really quick morning

  • skincare routine how much sunscreen I apply and then I also do

  • kind of like a natural everyday makeup local don't get tricked by seeing that

  • the sunscreen says SPF 50 or SPF 100 or you know I think that you should use at

  • least an SPF 30 but that little small amount that I just

  • used on this SPF 50 sunscreen I probably dropped it down to like an SPF 5 I mean

  • there's just I have no protection if that's all I use

  • is a little pea-sized on my whole face the second thing that I think many of us

  • might be doing incorrectly or just making us look a little bit older than

  • we are is number one using the wrong shade of foundation but not just using

  • the wrong shade using too heavy of a coverage especially like when I have

  • blemishes here when you have more mature skin and you're getting wrinkles and

  • fine lines and you have large pores or hyperpigmentation like what I have

  • piling on a cake face of foundation actually doesn't make you look younger

  • and it doesn't hide those imperfections or you know or make me feel better I'm

  • guilty of this because when I started getting this melasma about 10-15 years

  • ago I thought okay I have melasma and my face is breaking out I better add three

  • more layers of foundation to cover it up and honestly it just it looked terrible

  • but I never realized that some people would say why do you have so much makeup

  • on but I thought well at least they don't see my hyperpigmentation so this

  • will be the side of the face that I'm gonna put my makeup on incorrectly or

  • you know like I said I still do some of these things now but this will be the

  • side of the face that now I'm not saying this side is like perfect and a makeup

  • artist would approve I'm just saying for me that's what I personally feel makes

  • me not look older than I really am if I do my makeup the way I'm gonna do on

  • this side of my face summer time so I feel like I should use a darker

  • foundation so I'll use the shade tan on this side of my face and a lot of times

  • too I don't think it's so much the brand or the product that we need to be

  • looking for so if you have a foundation maybe you don't even need to go buy the

  • foundation that you see me using or that

  • you see another youtuber using maybe you

  • just need to use less of your foundation to make it look more natural and still

  • cover the flaws that you don't want others to see okay so I'm just adding a

  • little extra here like what I used to do because I really want to cover up then I

  • got to cover my neck too I want to cover these blemishes I mean you can see how

  • dark this foundation is and sure I could blend it all the way down but this is

  • just not the right shade for me so I feel like I've got most of my

  • hyperpigmentation hidden but I still can see these blemishes so I'm going to also

  • spot conceal over top of these blemishes and make sure that redness is completely

  • not showing

  • it's pretty cakey on this side of my face I am just gonna do a natural layer

  • I still have you know a lot of this hyperpigmentation and acne scar that's

  • healing here and these are spots that I do want to cover but I'm not going to

  • pile on the foundation so I have the shade medium and then I have the shade

  • medium tan but you don't have to go out and buy all different shades of

  • foundation if you want to just stick with medium or whatever shade you are in

  • that range and then just buy some color correcting these or shade adjusters

  • these are by Physicians Formula and you can adjust the shade of your foundation

  • so if this is too dark I add a little bit of the white if it's too light I can

  • add a little bit of the dark that's medium and then this is medium tan so

  • I'm probably just going to mix the two of these and get the perfect color first

  • I want to blend what we have here because this might be enough for almost

  • my whole face

  • now on this side I'm not going I'm just blending it on this side I'm not putting

  • the foundation all the way up underneath my eye because then when I put on my

  • concealer it's going to start getting a little bit cakey but on this side I did

  • put the foundation all the way up underneath my eye so now I have my

  • layers of foundation and then my layers of concealer so a lot of times it's not

  • your concealer that's making you have Creasy under eyes it's because you're

  • putting on maybe too much and again this is something that I have been guilty of

  • for years so this is the dark cakey side and this is the color that matches my

  • skin tone the best right now I'm not going to put a second layer of

  • foundation on I'm going to just spot conceal any areas that need a little bit

  • more coverage versus piling it all over my face now I want to put a little

  • concealer underneath my eyes this is one by L'Oreal I do really like this but I'm

  • really loving the candid concealer by Revlon but I'm trying to use this one up

  • so on this side I'm going to put the concealer on the way I used to and then

  • let's just blend that out

  • and then I just like to add a little bit extra underneath this line here just

  • kind of blend it in

  • and then on this side since I am getting older and I already have wrinkles and

  • fine lines underneath my eyes I have this hollowed out area which you know a

  • lot of people get filler to fix this but I'm just too chicken for that so I want

  • to put a little makeup there to help to disguise it a little bit so now I just

  • kind of put a few little drops but I don't bring it all the way up underneath

  • my eyes I put them right underneath where that hollowed out area or where

  • the eye bag is and then same thing I just kind of blend it out and it

  • eventually works its way up anyways because there's still some on my

  • blending sponge and then I might apply a little bit more especially in this dark

  • hollow here and then just a couple little drops underneath and then I'll

  • just use my finger and then just kind of lightly blend and now I'm just gonna set

  • my face with some powder and since I used to watch a lot of the younger gals

  • on YouTube I thought this was the right way for a 46 year old woman to set her

  • face with powder get a little more to make sure we really set it all under the

  • eyes really good because we don't want our concealer to crease on this side and

  • then I just kind of lightly press it on everywhere else just to set that

  • foundation I never really let this sit and bake like a lot of people did I just

  • would kind of brush it off right afterwards but still regardless I still

  • have a thick cakey layer of face powder on which is going to settle in my pores

  • and it's gonna eventually just kind of make my face look dry and wrinkled out

  • versus natural and dewy looking so now I do want to set the side to take down

  • some of the glow and usually I do that at the very end with some different

  • products I'm gonna tap off any of this excess and then I'm just gonna lightly

  • dust this on my face one thing I want to do before I ever lightly powder

  • underneath my eyes I always look in a zoom in mirror and I take my finger and

  • I might have just accidentally gotten some powder there but I like to take my

  • finger and kind of make sure that concealer that I just put on is

  • already Preston because if I don't then I'm just going to be setting the

  • wrinkled area already so I want to make sure it's not all wrinkled and then I

  • just kind of lightly powder everything

  • so next I'm just gonna go ahead and do my blush and highlight and then I'll do

  • my eyes afterwards so I'm going to use this pretty palette now again you can

  • use any blush any eyeshadow but this is one that I love and I think right now

  • it's on like half off sale at skin store I'll link it down below I paid full

  • price for it but this is by Sigma has a little mirror inside but then it also

  • has four eyeshadows a blush and a highlighter and I absolutely love this

  • palette as we're aging we want everything to look lifted not to look

  • down not to go down now blush is one thing that I know I always wear

  • incorrectly because I wear a lot of blush and the way I like to wear it I

  • don't know if it's right or not but I think it looks pretty the way I like to

  • wear but the way I used to wear it I would always put the blush too far down

  • on my cheek now I'm not gonna do a contour or anything like that today

  • because you know a lot of people don't even use a bronzer or contour and I

  • never used to until maybe a couple years ago but this is where I used to put my

  • blush I kind of put it right here or I see a lot of people doing it you know

  • like this or I see a lot of people kind of just putting it right here on the

  • apple of their cheek and then you know they like to brush it down and then

  • blend it that way so now I do try to do it on the apples of my cheek but I try

  • to keep everything lifted and blended so I'll just put a little here and then I

  • just blend you know very very lightly in little circles and I feel like because

  • you know look at little kids when they blush when they their cheeks are flushed

  • they don't get red down here their cheeks are flushed up here so they

  • always look like that they have those big chubby cheeks that you want to pinch

  • now I want to put on a little bit of this highlight it's such a pretty

  • highlight you guys I love it but if you get too heavy-handed

  • I think it's aging I think a highlighter this is just my opinion I think a

  • highlighter especially for daytime should just look natural like highlight

  • where the Sun you know would make your face glow not so much look at your face

  • and you see a thick white stripe if that's the style that you're going for

  • again totally do what makes you feel comfortable but in my opinion

  • and even any age I just don't find that very attractive so I used to do this

  • when I thought this was the end thing to do and just take the highlighter and put

  • a nice white streak of it here you know to really highlight that side of the

  • face I'm gonna use the same little brush but I've just kind of tapped off the

  • excess and and then usually what I'll do with my highlighter is I just very light

  • handed put a smidge of it on to just highlight the top of my soup bone this

  • way you don't see like a streak anywhere it's just like a beautiful glow one that

  • I love I've talked about this in many videos if you're just looking for that

  • natural glow but you do want it to look you know like the Sun is hitting your

  • cheeks and you have that beautiful highlight this one by essence is called

  • B my highlight I think you have three different colors but I think this one is

  • so pretty it's such a natural looking highlight and it's perfect for mature

  • women it's great for younger women also but my channel is about mature skin and

  • so that's what this is about all right next I'm gonna do my eye so

  • I'm just gonna prime my eyes real quick with my Milani eye primer now if you've

  • watched any of my videos you know I have hooded eyes this is not something that I

  • got from Aging I have had hooded eyes like this ever since I was born but I

  • never used to understand how to do my eye shadow so on this so this will be

  • the eye that I'll show you the proper way that I feel to do eyeshadow with

  • hooded eyes is and then this sign I'm going to show you how I used to do my

  • eye shadow because I didn't realize that there was a special way that if you have

  • this kind of droopy looking upper eyelid that kind of you mine aren't terrible

  • but their hood it and it makes your eyes kind of look down turn so if you have

  • this little extra skin that's kind of pulling down on your eyes

  • then maybe this side is how you might want to do your eye shadow I'm just

  • going to use this shade all over the lid here I might put a little bit of this on

  • the eyelid and under the brow bone and then we use this shade right here in the

  • outer V

  • and then I'm gonna use this really small brush this is great if you have really

  • small eyes or if you're trying to get into the crease this is by Vasanti I

  • think I got this in one of my like hypsi beauty boxes now I'm just gonna use this

  • dark shade called elderberry and that's what I'm gonna do to make my outer-v

  • oops I almost started trying to do it the

  • right way I'll do it the way I used to do it make this nice little V on the

  • side and then I'd also blend it into my crease darken that V up some okay then

  • I'll just take this fluffy brush and blend it cuz I did at least you know

  • blend everything I didn't try to look crazy I just used to put my eyeshadow on

  • wrong and I feel like I needed a little bit more of an outer V now I also didn't

  • use this dark of eyeshadow but I feel like if I use more light natural looking

  • eye shadow you won't be able to see what I'm doing and then I would blend and I'd

  • make I'd always blend it down you know pull it down so already you can tell it

  • just kind of pulls the eye down the other thing I would do is I would take

  • this dark color on a brush and I'd also use it as eyeliner underneath and then

  • blend that put this here and you know you see so many of the really pretty

  • girls on YouTube the younger gals it's messed up you see a lot of the younger

  • gals on YouTube and they are able to bring it down this way and then they

  • blend it down and it just looks so pretty the way they blend it you know it

  • looks so nice and smoky so that's what I would try to do and then I would always

  • just take a little bit of the lighter shade and I put a little bit of that on

  • the eyelid

  • just blend that together and now I'm just gonna do this I how I would

  • normally do it with this pallet so I'm just gonna do the same thing put this

  • pretty peachy shade all over the eyelid and then just kind of bring it up just a

  • smidge above where my crease is so my crease is actually down here but what I

  • want to do is look straight into the mirror which this is a camera but I'll

  • look straight into the mirror and see where I would want the crease to be and

  • then I'm going to make my own crease even though I do love this palette

  • since I have hooded eyes I don't want to use that super dark shade and make a

  • crease with that so usually what I'll do instead of just getting out of separate

  • eyeshadow palette or something I will just use my bronzer so I'm just going to

  • use this one by Maybelline it's their City bronzer and this is I think the

  • shade 200 and I'm going to use this the bronzer to make my crease so I'm gonna

  • keep my eyes open and look straight in a mirror and instead of putting it down
