Hi guys.
00:04
I'm Candice and I'm gonna show you
00:07
how I do just an every day
00:10
glowy, sun-kissed look.
00:13
My hair is super straight.
00:15
And I like to have a little bit of a curl.
00:18
(hair dryer roaring)
00:22
I mean sometimes,
00:24
I'll get the curling iron out but,
00:27
I don't have time for that kind of thing these days.
00:31
And I get lazy so this is kind
00:33
of the lazy way to get a wave.
00:37
Princess Leia.
00:39
Pour these guys.
00:41
If I had time, I would do,
00:45
the eye masks.
00:48
'Cause lord knows, I haven't slept in two years.
00:52
I do like to, you know, take time
00:55
and do a look.
00:56
It's kind of like a ritual.
00:58
Doing your makeup I think, it's a moment for yourself
01:02
as a woman to just tune into you
01:05
and make yourself feel good.
01:07
Highlighting bronzer.
01:09
This is some breastfeeding.
01:12
This is the,
01:15
like crazy veins from breastfeeding.
01:18
My body is always darker than my face
01:20
because I use sunscreen daily.
01:23
So this, it looks crazy in the beginning.
01:28
I guess just getting my makeup done
01:30
by different makeup artists daily,
01:34
helped me learn what works best for me.
01:37
But as a kid I danced.
01:39
So you know we used to have to do
01:42
that kind of theater makeup.
01:46
I mix a bunch of stuff on my hand.
01:50
The beauty blenders.
01:53
I do like to wet,
01:55
them a little with, rose spray.
01:59
Another one.
02:00
It's a concealer, it's pretty full on.
02:02
Dermacolor, it's quite heavyweight stuff.
02:07
So I do mix an oil or,
02:11
something moist to kind of smooth it out.
02:15
So I kind of you know,
02:18
mix into everything here.
02:21
This is great for the guns.
02:24
I have some sun damage and markings from pregnancy.
02:30
It's a normal thing that happens.
02:33
So just to set that a little,
02:36
I use this MAC Prep and Prime.
02:41
It's very lightweight.
02:43
My skin is oily so,
02:45
the shine comes through really quickly.
02:49
So by the time we're finished this video,
02:51
I'll be shiny again.
02:53
Blush, I love this Stila color.
02:58
I like to use my hands in everything.
03:01
Because the warmth of your hand,
03:04
just makes the makeup set better.
03:08
So with this I also put on my lids.
03:12
I just feel like it makes you look a little more alive.
03:18
So blush on the nose kind of gives a fake, sun kissed look.
03:22
'Cause that's where you would look sunburned naturally.
03:26
So then I'm gonna go back
03:28
in under my eyes with this Dermacolor.
03:33
And really get those little bags.
03:38
Thank God for concealer.
03:41
What I like to do at home,
03:42
is do like half of my makeup
03:45
and then might be with my kids
03:48
and have breakfast and whatever else.
03:50
And then I go back and finish it up.
03:53
'Cause it's had like, a little time to sit.
03:57
Everybody feels better after curling their eyelashes.
04:02
It's funny when men see you doing this
04:05
they like, feel like you're torturing yourself.
04:09
I know a lot of men that are like oh!
04:10
Eyebrows, focus Candice.
04:12
I use two different brow pens.
04:14
This Burberry one has a really cool tip.
04:19
That you can get a much thicker look.
04:24
I used to pluck my eyebrows in high school.
04:27
And that was the first thing my French agency
04:30
told me to stop doing and thankfully, they grew back.
04:36
The bushier the better.
04:37
And then I'm gonna take the Laura Mercier,
04:40
make it a little bit longer.
04:43
And any other little holes.
04:47
One done.
04:48
It's funny if you give me time,
04:50
I'll take forever doing it.
04:52
But if I don't have time it still will be done
04:55
and look the same in two minutes.
05:00
Mascara.
05:01
I use this MAC Haute and Naughty.
05:04
This one has a really fine brush.
05:08
It gets like, quite wispy.
05:11
So I like to get like really, to the root.
05:15
And fan them out.
05:18
I don't always put on the bottom.
05:21
'Cause my bottom lashes are longer
05:25
than the top ones weirdly.
05:27
So I made a mess and it's all good.
05:30
A trick to get,
05:34
the messy mascara bits is dipping the Q-tip
05:38
in concealer.
05:40
So you don't take it all off.
05:44
So just clean that up.
05:46
I'm gonna use a little, kind of mauve color.
05:51
Just to do a little contouring in the eye.
05:56
Mauve is really good with blue eyes.
05:58
The tones kind of make blue eyes pop.
06:02
Today I'm gonna do a little definition underneath.
06:07
Put some lip balm on.
06:09
This is my absolute favorite.
06:13
I don't go anywhere without this.
06:16
Let me do contour.
06:17
I can,
06:18
kind of do the base with this.
06:20
Same one that I went in on the eye.
06:24
I go into the hairline as well.
06:28
And into the jaw.
06:31
I would be nothing without contour.
06:35
So I make this funny face just to see
06:37
where my cheekbone is.
06:41
I like to use the same product
06:44
for various things so that you don't have
06:48
to end up packing so much.
06:51
This is one of my favorite products.
06:53
The Hoola Benefit.
06:56
I think everyone uses this.
06:58
This gives you like a great tan.
07:02
So I like to put a lot on my forehead
07:04
because that's where the sun would
07:09
usually get you.
07:11
I didn't go to Greece but that's not a problem.
07:15
'Cause I can fake it.
07:16
So this is kind of like my lip primer.
07:21
On a day that I don't have any time,
07:23
this is the only thing that I would put on.
07:26
It just gives a really, like natural stain.
07:30
But today I'm going to use it
07:32
as kind of the prep.
07:34
Back to eyes.
07:35
I'm like,
07:37
a little disorganized.
07:40
So this stuff I can go kind of crazy with.
07:44
Some days I only use this on my eye.
07:47
Like without the contour.
07:50
Here, it just casts a light
07:53
and kind of brightens,
07:55
brightens your eyes.
07:58
And then I do in here as well.
08:02
Basically my whole face.
08:06
And on the bow of the lip.
08:09
Sometimes natural makeup takes the longest.
08:13
Like the more natural you want to look.
08:17
Fake natural.
08:20
So instead of just putting the pencil straight on
08:23
to really get it in the lash line,
08:26
I like to do, like from the middle out.
08:32
Just for a little lift.
08:35
Boom.
08:36
Lips.
08:37
This is NARS.
08:39
What color is this?
08:41
Do me baby, nice.
08:44
Instead of doing a liner,
08:46
you can kind of paint it on the bow of your lips
08:51
to look a little bit more pouty.
08:54
I love these colors that are close to a natural
08:58
but, just enhanced a little more.
09:02
So just for extra definition.
09:04
With this eye sheen.
09:09
And sometimes a little,
09:11
on the lips.
09:12
Now I'm going to use this little guy
09:15
as the finishing touch.
09:17
Kind of just presses everything in.
09:20
So that it doesn't move.
09:23
Back with the blush.
09:24
And I promise you, that's it.
09:27
Little smile.
09:30
Let me take my hair out.
09:33
So you can kind of see what it does, the bun.
09:39
Lazy girl's curly hair.
09:42
I love dry shampoo.
09:44
Thank God for dry shampoo.
09:46
(spritzing)
09:48
This one gives you a little bit of volume as well.
09:53
Not bad for not, not doing anything.
09:56
(laughing)
09:58
Last but not least, the freckles.
10:02
I learned this from Brazilian makeup artist
10:06
that I love to work with.
10:08
This is, Dior Show.
10:10
I warm it up a little on my hand.
10:15
Just kind of go for it.
10:16
Looks crazy at first.
10:21
And then you use like a patting action.
10:24
Always felt freckles look really youthful
10:28
and like you've been in the sun.
10:32
And then I throw some random ones all over.
10:37
And voila,
10:39
that is me ready for meetings
10:42
and a day out on the town.
10:45
(kissing)
