Hello everyone, I am Doutzen Kroes
00:05
and I'm going to do a makeup tutorial for you today
00:09
for the first time ever.
00:11
When I wake up, I just check my face, see what it needs.
00:16
And I always start with little bit of eye cream.
00:22
I started doing eye cream maybe a year ago.
00:27
Way too late.
00:29
Then I turned 34 this year and I realize,
00:32
I will have to start doing facials more often.
00:35
And use eye creams so here we go.
00:37
Giving a good example to the young ones out there.
00:41
Then I am putting some moisturizing cream
00:46
and then I just, rubbing my hands like this.
00:49
And just massage all over.
00:53
When you massage like this, it drains all the water
00:57
out of your face.
00:58
So it's really good to do this in the morning.
01:02
Somebody told me that you have to make sure
01:03
it goes all the way to the sides of your face.
01:08
I have noticed a difference actually
01:09
when I do this every morning,
01:11
I do feel like I have a less puffy face.
01:14
Then next thing I do is, I finish my eyebrows.
01:20
Just like that.
01:24
When I wake up, my eyebrows point downwards
01:28
or when you know when you put a sweater on,
01:30
you have done your makeup and you put your sweater on
01:33
and my eyebrows will just hang downwards.
01:37
So I always make sure they're up.
01:40
Concealer, I tap my fingers, like this
01:44
and then I go around the eyes.
01:49
I take foundation and I put a lot.
01:55
I almost do it like it's a cream.
01:58
It goes on my lips to easy and then I do this.
02:03
Don't forget the neck.
02:06
It's your second face.
02:08
I started looking after my neck,
02:10
the same time I started using creams and doing facials.
02:14
It's not that long ago.
02:16
You know you take advantage of having anything good
02:20
in your life and my skin has always been good
02:24
but obviously I'm aging and I want
02:27
to take care of it and age beautifully.
02:31
I use my hands and I do that because it's, it warms it up
02:35
and it really massages and this is a tip,
02:38
I actually got from Pat McGrath, she would just massage it
02:42
like it was a face massage and I wasn't used to that
02:45
because everyone's always doing the little pressures
02:48
and filling around and she was just going like this
02:52
and I feel like it's a really good way
02:53
of making it look natural.
02:56
Now I actually take this one, the beauty blender
03:01
and I spend a lot of time on doing the skin
03:05
more than anything else.
03:08
I do like this.
03:10
This is concealer, to get rid of those bugs
03:16
I definitely got more bugs when I had my children
03:20
but I always had them even in high school.
03:24
Oh and don't forget the ears 'cause otherwise
03:27
it's just little right things.
03:30
Sometimes I put a little bit in the hairline too.
03:34
I think my favorite part are my eyelashes
03:37
because they are blonde on top so when I put mascara
03:42
you'll see, they will,
03:44
it makes a big difference when I put it.
03:47
Okay next thing I do is I curl my eyelashes
03:51
and this is something my children freak out when I do it.
03:58
They do watch me put on makeup and my daughter,
04:00
she loves it and she wants to do it too
04:03
but she is still young.
04:06
I think I was allowed when I went to high school
04:11
before I think I was around 10 years old
04:13
and I would put a color pencil and wet it
04:16
and just when I was in school, I would just go
04:19
to the bathroom and put lipstick on.
04:22
So I kinda always liked makeup, what I really liked to do
04:25
is put a little bit of black pencil,
04:30
inside the eye,
04:33
extend it a little bit
04:37
like that so it makes the eye shape
04:41
more almond instead of round.
04:47
This is the kind of tricks you learn when you're a model.
04:51
And then I am going to do mascara sometimes I take a tissue
04:56
I go like this to take some of the mascara off
05:00
so it doesn't become very thick
05:05
and it makes it look more natural.
05:10
Whoa!
05:12
[giggles]
05:13
I'm surprised by my own look.
05:17
I think I have a little bit of a different makeup routine
05:20
since I moved back to Amsterdam,
05:22
I used to live in New York for 12 years.
05:24
When I bring the kids to school,
05:26
I do very minimal contour,
05:31
little bit of shading and that's it
05:33
and then when they're in school,
05:36
I'll do some make up stuff like this.
05:39
I don't like to wake up early just to do makeup
05:41
that's really the fact.
05:44
So I am doing some lip balm too.
05:47
So I put a little bit of bronzer, then I blow I on it
05:52
to get most of it off and then I go very subtle,
05:57
like this and like on the cheeks and right here
06:03
so you get a very nice contour
06:06
but not heavy and then I go like everywhere.
06:12
Now I have to do my eyebrows again.
06:17
I'm going to brush my eyebrows, I think I'm going
06:20
to extend them a little bit with the other side.
06:25
This is not a black color, It's kind of like a gray,
06:30
fill up the gaps and then make them a little bit longer.
06:37
I put my eyebrows just in here,
06:41
just a little bit 'cause I like them to be full.
06:47
I've had my eyebrows dyed blonde
06:50
for shows and for shoots
06:52
and it's a really great look, I think for pictures.
06:57
It's really fun to look different.
06:59
It's part of my job to get different looks
07:01
and be a different person almost sometimes.
07:04
So I really like it but then when you
07:06
have bleached eyebrows, you really need an eye.
07:10
So then I would come home and I would have bleached eyebrows
07:13
and takes forever to grow back.
07:15
I come home so many times from work
07:17
and my daughter is in awe,
07:19
she loves, she loves her makeup more than I do.
07:23
And she just loves to see me come home with hair
07:26
and makeup and says like, oh mommy look so pretty.
07:29
And it's so nice then I realize she doesn't even realize
07:32
half the time what I do because she's only four.
07:35
She only sees all these pretty dresses in my closet
07:38
that she wants that I save for her of course.
07:41
She is so different than I am, I am more of a tomboy
07:44
and I never, I mean up until 18 years old
07:48
I never did much makeup and I was always running around
07:52
in the bush and she's the opposite.
07:54
So now I'll finished up the look with a lip.
07:59
And what I do usually I just take them to top like this
08:03
and I put my finger here 'cause I kinda like a stain lip.
08:11
I really don't like to have hair around when I do makeup
08:16
but now since I'm going out tonight, I could take it down.
08:22
So this is my first ever makeup tutorial
08:25
and I had so much fun.
08:27
I will see you soon.
