00:03
Hey everyone, it's Cat here.
00:04
I am going to show you how to do my Miss Universe glam.
00:08
This is exact look, or pretty much the same
00:10
of what I did for my coronation of Miss Universe
00:13
that happened last December.
00:14
First off, starting with skincare.
00:16
Usually, I like to just use a micellar water,
00:19
just to cleanse my face after washing my face.
00:21
It's quick, it's easy,
00:23
you know when you're backstage,
00:24
you sometimes don't have access to a sink.
00:28
And then I'll usually go in with a serum.
00:32
Be bougie with my product.
00:35
Don't forget your neck.
00:36
I love an eye cream that has a green tint,
00:39
because I just feel like you hit two birds with one stone
00:44
in the fact that I like to use it around my nose,
00:46
and also places that I get dry and red,
00:49
because the green helps combat that redness.
00:53
Good old Papaw Ointment,
00:55
I've been using this since I was in high school.
00:57
Just on the lips.
01:00
For pageantry and for shows, I love makeup.
01:03
I love the Fenty primer,
01:05
just because I feel like it's moisturizing.
01:08
Just a few pumps, and then just drag it around the face.
01:12
And then for foundation, I love the Nars Radiant foundation,
01:15
just because it has that really natural finish.
01:18
Just gonna dab.
01:20
I like to work from the center outwards,
01:22
I don't like when I have foundation all the way up here,
01:26
because then it doesn't blend into your face.
01:29
The thing that I love nowadays is that cameras are HD,
01:32
like, it's not, back in the day
01:34
when it used to be like stage makeup,
01:36
because there was no cameras, and you had to really cater
01:40
to the audience seeing you from such a distance.
01:42
Now, the cameras zoom up into your face
01:45
and they see everything,
01:46
so you can really get away with a sheerer coverage.
01:50
For concealer, I also love the Nars Radiant concealer,
01:53
this is in Ginger.
01:55
And I like to really aim
01:58
towards just correcting what needs to be corrected again,
02:02
and try and be minimal with product.
02:05
This is the Huda Beauty Pound Cake.
02:07
And underneath the eyes, I am going to bake.
02:12
Also 'cause it's gonna catch my fallout from my eyeshadow.
02:16
I have quite a small lid,
02:18
and I have quite an almond eye,
02:20
so I really like to accentuate it and bring the shadows out.
02:23
So, the first thing I like to do is I like to take,
02:26
like, a champagne-y highlight color that's not too shimmery.
02:30
I like to drag that on my brow bone.
02:34
And this is an eyebrow palette that's really affordable.
02:37
And I just take it, and I start to map out the shape
02:41
of where I want my shadows to go,
02:43
so I kind of do a straight line
02:45
out to start my feline slant.
02:52
It's got some crazy colors, but I love it,
02:53
because if ever I want to play up with the base of my color,
02:56
I can go in with, like, a cool pink or a blue,
02:59
but usually I gravitate towards these.
03:02
So, I'm going to take a mixture of these two colors here.
03:07
I'm going to take my eyebrow palette again.
03:10
Just working in a darker shadow into the outer corner.
03:16
So, for the base of my shimmer,
03:18
I use it whenever, this is the Nars Velvet Shadow Stick.
03:22
Just all over my lid.
03:24
Just find that the shadow stays longer when I use this.
03:28
This is my favorite shadow, this one right here,
03:32
it's called Casablanca.
03:34
And I'm just gonna get it with a finger,
03:36
slap it on.
03:38
And then...
03:40
And go back with my fluffy brush
03:42
and just blend out the edges.
03:45
This is the Urban Decay 24/7 liner.
03:48
And I'm just going to accentuate my lash line.
03:51
It's like the base of my liquid,
03:53
'cause I feel like, when I go in straight with liquid
03:56
it's so stressful, because once it's on, it's on.
04:01
I am gonna go in with my extra oomph of sparkle,
04:04
because why not?
04:06
This is my favorite.
04:09
Magnificent Metals.
04:11
And this color is Bronzed Bell, it's the one that I used
04:14
in both my national pageant, and in Miss Universe.
04:17
Just over where I've put that gold already.
04:23
I always like to keep revisiting
04:26
where I laid down shadow in the first place, just because,
04:30
you know when you add different products,
04:31
you can tend to rub it away, or layer on top of it.
04:35
So just re-intensifying it.
04:37
It's time for eyeliner.
04:41
So, this is the only black that I use in the whole look.
04:43
And I'm just going
04:44
across where I laid down my brown eyeliner.
04:49
Time to prep eyelashes.
04:52
Good eyelash curler is like, honestly,
04:55
a beauty holy grail.
04:57
You shouldn't curl too much
04:59
if you're putting false eyelashes,
05:00
'cause otherwise your lashes
05:01
are literally gonna go backwards.
05:03
Take my handy-dandy Maybelline mascara,
05:07
and just give a good coat.
05:11
I just have these pair of three lashes.
05:14
So, I really am a fan of like, wispy, natural lashes.
05:18
And if I wanna go bolder,
05:20
I'll use two lashes on top of each other.
05:23
Put on a good amount of glue,
05:25
keep it, let it dry.
05:27
[blows]
05:29
Wave it around, whatever works for you.
05:31
And then once it's almost ready to apply,
05:34
I'm going to reapply just on the corners,
05:36
just for that extra security,
05:38
because I always find when a lash starts to budge,
05:42
it'll come off either in the corner or on the side.
05:46
I'm gonna put it as close to the lash line as possible.
05:56
Bam.
06:00
So those are the first layer of lashes.
06:02
I'm gonna go in with a second,
06:03
just because this is my pageant glam.
06:06
Second pair going on.
06:11
Okay, I got my lashes,
06:12
I'm gonna chuck on some mascara.
06:14
I feel is the giveaway, always, for fake lashes,
06:18
is the inner corner, 'cause you can see,
06:19
like, the natural lashes will be like this,
06:22
and then the falsies will be like this.
06:23
So, even when I'm curling my lashes,
06:26
I always make sure that my
06:29
inner lashes here are nice and lifted.
06:33
Time for me to do my lower lash line for shadow.
06:37
I'm gonna take a combination of those two colors again.
06:39
Just like, smoking out that bottom lash line.
06:45
And then, I'm going to take the liquid,
06:46
and in the inside of my inner corner,
06:49
I am going to line here.
06:54
Can't forget the lashes.
06:59
Yeah.
07:00
And kind of makes it pop.
07:01
Time to dust off my fallout powder.
07:05
I like to do this with, like, a sheer powder.
07:07
This is the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer powder.
07:11
I kind of like it when my under-eye
07:13
has a little bit of a glow,
07:15
or like, a brightness to it, does that make sense?
07:18
So, I just took a little bit of product
07:20
and then I'm just...
07:22
There.
07:23
And then, time to contour.
07:27
I like to go in with a highlight down the center of my nose.
07:29
And so, I'm just taking it on a little, small fluffy brush.
07:33
And then, I just drag a little down my nose.
07:37
Then I'm going in with my handy eyebrow palette.
07:39
And yes, it's an eyebrow palette,
07:40
but I will use it to contour my nose.
07:42
So I have this small, like, angled brush,
07:45
and I take this camel color.
07:47
What I like to do to deepen,
07:48
like, the shape of my eyes, too, is I like to go in here,
07:53
and just kind of start to,
07:56
kind of, fake definition.
07:59
So you can see that I've defined more my eye
08:03
by taking it up into the brow.
08:05
And I just feel like it ties everything together.
08:11
I have my crazy looking palette here.
08:14
Gingerly, which is like this deep peach,
08:17
and Peachykeen.
08:19
They're both by MAC.
08:21
My favorite part, aside from shimmer,
08:23
is more shimmer, obviously.
08:25
This is a Laura Mercier palette,
08:28
and I mix these two colors here,
08:29
it's like a pink and like a soft gold.
08:32
And then, I'm just brushing the highlight,
08:35
actually, almost near my eyes, so just here.
08:38
I don't wanna drag it down here,
08:40
'cause I think,
08:41
well for me, that makes me look like I have apple cheeks.
08:44
Another highlighter that I really love
08:47
is the Fenty Diamond Bomb.
08:52
And as you can see, it's quite a silvery finish,
08:56
which might, like, if you have olive skin like me,
08:58
you might be like, Oh my goodness.
09:00
But it really blends in and it sheers, so I'll show you.
09:03
I've just got it with my finger,
09:05
and then, again, over where I put that initial highlight.
09:10
You can just see, and it just,
09:13
it's so pretty.
09:14
Eyebrows are a love-hate relationship.
09:16
I like the fluffy brow look.
09:18
So, I'm gonna go in with my darker pencil.
09:22
And then, I'm just gonna follow the shape that I have.
09:25
And then, I always find, even with eyeshadow,
09:28
start off light, and then once you've mapped out the shape,
09:31
and exactly know where you wanna go,
09:34
then make it darker.
09:37
And then I'm going in with my second color,
09:39
which is the lighter color.
09:40
And we're gonna do brush-like strokes, or hair-like strokes,
09:44
just because I want it to look natural, so...
09:49
One of my favorite products for brows, is this K-Palette.
09:53
It just adds a different little touch of dimension.
09:58
Bam, I have brows.
10:00
And I have, like, really long eyebrow hairs,
10:02
and what will happen is, like, throughout the day,
10:04
this will happen, my hairs will not match my brow,
10:08
and it'll end up like this.
10:09
But this is what I have picked up.
10:11
I'll take Duo eyelash glue, which is like,
10:14
it dries clear, but it comes out white.
10:16
And I'll put a little bit on my hand.
10:18
And then, getting a spoolie,
10:21
I will just, and you have to work fast,
10:23
so, I will talk about it first before I do it.
10:25
I'm gonna tap it,
10:26
and then I'm gonna brush through my eyebrows,
10:28
and it'll make it stay all day, I swear.
10:32
You brush it backwards first,
10:34
and then into the shape that you want your brows to stay.
10:40
If you can see,
10:42
if there is a little bit of white,
10:43
it'll dry down clear.
10:45
And then, it has put texture back into my hair, too,
10:48
so it gives that dimension to my brow,
10:50
which I really like.
10:51
And I like to use a lip liner,
10:53
no matter what lipstick color I'm using.
10:57
I'm gonna give you guys two lip options,
10:59
because if you're someone who likes a more natural lip,
11:04
this is something that you could definitely do.
11:07
This is the color that I actually wore
11:09
for my nationals in the Philippines,
11:11
it's called Crown, and it's by Bragais.
11:16
It's like a brownish lip,
11:17
and if it's looking a little bit crazy,
11:19
and you're like, Oh my gosh, Cat,
11:20
I can't work a brown lip,
11:22
this is what I love to do.
11:23
So, I take, like, a small...
11:25
Like, a small amount of a red.
11:27
It just makes it look a little bit more fresh,
11:30
a little bit more youthful.
11:31
So, just taking this...
11:34
Here, so you can see it, like,
11:36
it just added just a little bit of something.
11:39
Little bit of color.
11:42
And then I'm gonna show you guys
11:44
the red lip that I used for coronation,
11:46
for Miss Universe.
11:47
This is Stunna by Fenty.
11:49
So, I'm going to take this off.
11:53
Right?
11:54
Like, that application, though.
11:56
[laughs]
12:00
So, that is the red lip.
12:05
Last is setting spray.
12:11
Thank you so much, guys, for hanging out with me today,
12:13
this is my Miss Universe glam look,
12:16
the same makeup that I did for myself
12:18
for the coronation of Miss Universe.
12:20
I hope you guys enjoyed it
12:21
and learned a few tips and tricks.
12:23
Bye, guys!
