Hi guys, welcome to La Maison L’Oréal Paris, your one-stop for everything makeup and skincare! And before we proceed, don’t forget to subscribe to our Channel and also you turn on the notification bell, so that you are notified and updated every time you upload a new video! and now that we are all quarantined inside our homes I thought, let’s share a few household makeup hacks, because staying indoors does not mean that you cannot wear makeup! In fact, it just helps in lifting your mood up, and what can get better if I can also share a few household makeup hacks for you guys and I’m not going to be doing that alone! In fact, I am going to call a very dear friend of mine Aanam Chashmawala or Aanam C, who is a very, very famous blogger she’s known from a fashion, her makeup, for styling.
.. everything! So, I am gonna be calling her, and we are gonna be doing a few household hacks for you guys so let’s get started! How are you doing, Aanam C? How’s being quarantined working out for you? What’s happening? To be honest, I’m just trying to make the most of my time and filming more videos than ever before I’m getting to spend time with my husband and my little cat who otherwise, I don’t get to spend that much time with So, I am just trying to be the best of the situation, I guess? How’s it going for you? Oh, it’s pretty much the same, just filming creating videos, content and everything! I think it’s almost the same for me because this has been my lifestyle forever, I feel like so it hasn’t really affected me, to be honest! Okay! So, you had something exciting to share with me in today’s video, and I’m excited to know what it is that you have in store for me! So, I was thinking since we’re in quarantine and we’re in our houses, let’s make use of some household stuff in life you know come up with a few beauty hacks that we can maybe share with our audience here, and just do something really quick and fun and interesting.
What do you think? Yeah! I think it’s a great time for everyone who has the time to sit back and Get your glam makeup look going and do more rehearsals on what you you would do on a Saturday Night Out! Using household makeup tools, is a great way of going ahead and just working on your techniques! Yeah, perfect! So, I think let’s just jump into the video then, what do you think? Let’s do it! Okay, Aanam C.
remember I asked you to keep two spoons in the freezer? Yes, I have the them here with me, right now I’m gonna show you a beauty hack with these 2 spoons! So, all you have to do is just place the backside of the spoon underneath your eyes like that and it works great for for puffy eyes, especially if you’ve been working long hours during the night.
You wake up with that swollen like puffiness around your eyes, so it just works wonders So this is a calmer way of using ice around your eyes to basically, soothe anti-redness, because I have seen people use a lot of ice for puffy eyes It’s much faster than ice, because chilling your spoon hardly takes about 4-5 minutes Feels good, doesn’t it? Yeah, it’s actually soothing! So yeah, that was my first makeup hack! Now, you want to start with the makeup? Aanam C.
: Yes! So, I’m going to be using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation I am in the shade: 106 ‘Sun Beige’ and I guess it’s we don’t really have a makeup hack for foundation So, we are just going to skip to directly applying the foundation Super! I have got the same product over here, I am in the shade: 107.
I love what this foundation does to my skin I love how it builds up so beautifully, and it lasts long! It spreads really beautifully One the best things about it I love how lightweight this foundation is, it is breathable and yet it’s got a really nice coverage Okay, so I’m gonna apply a little bit of foundation on my neck as well, because we don’t want 2 different shades of skin tone happening my test for the right foundation shade – makeup hack is to match it to the jaw, which I feel gives you a good balance between your face, your neck and your chest! That’s actually a really good makeup tip it’s actually really cool! Thank you for sharing! Ok, so I think we can move on Shall we move on to the concealer? Because I have my favourite sitting over here! I have the L’Oreal Paris Infallible over here, which is a full coverage concealer I wear this in the shade: ‘Amber’ and no jokes, I have never loved a concealer so much because you can wear it like really nice and light but you can also really build it up, you know what I mean? Have you noticed one thing about this concealer? It actually kind of reduces your fine lines are underneath your eyes, it does not enhance it.
.. because I’ve come across a lot of full coverage concealers that actually just enhances the fine lines and this one doesn’t it actually blurs them out out, so it’s got some sort of priming effect The creasing goes away! In fact, one other thing that I really like and I’m gonna show you guys is the doe foot style applicator which I really like because it’s got a really nice, thick application technique because of which I I have not gone back dipping the product, at all.
So just 1 dip is more than enough for one wear Do you also go over your lips with your concealer or foundation, Simmy? yeah I always do that in fact, if I have already done it with my foundation once so I’m gonna go over it with my concealer also Same! I feel like that gives us such a nice base for the eyeshadow that you’re about to wear that you don’t need a separate eye primer if you do this definitely you do need a eye base for this then I have also learnt this additional area where I kinda highlight my face just right underneath the area where you contour your face so this is where I draw a line and then I brighten this bit up so if you don’t have a contour with you, it just instantly put this part in shadow and then this one is highlighted so just kinda gives you that illusion of already contoured face, without contouring it That’s nice! It’s like, the technique that you were using is called reverse contouring I think it’s a really cool technique if you’re someone who is just looking to highlight, but if you are looking to add shape I feel like that might be little bit of a problem like, we will need a good bronzer okay, so now it’s time to go into the contour bronzer but I have a little makeup hack for you over here, my business card! Now, this is a really simple makeup hack, you can totally try this and perfect it while you are at home! Set your business card, credit card, debit card whatever you have on the side of your cheek.
It basically needs to go from the top of your ear, facing the side of your lip; so you start right here and you keep it like this this is basically where the hollow of the contour is and just take your brush with your powder bronzer and just simply go over it okay I’m gonna try that! I think I’m gonna go in with my foundation itself but I’m going to use a darker shade of foundation So i’m using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation but in the shade: 108, as my contour I’m going to follow your technique, just gonna place it and then dot the contour where I need it Go from the top of the ear, to the side of your lip and as you can see you get a little bit of a line because your business card is around a line any card is a straight line with the help your brush now that you have the basic mapping done so you can go ahead and blend like mapping where you gonna place the contour shade That’s a good idea! I feel like this makeup for beginners will be really handy because so many people are like intimidated, they’re scared about trying contouring! You don’t have to go from 0-100, you don’t have to look Kim Kardashian-ish contoured you can always start it at an easier pace, and then build up.
Once you are used to it you just be able to do it on your own really easily You know, I used to be really scared of contour back when I started so I used to feel like I have done my base so well so well and now if I contour, it’s gonna mess up everything So, I used to be very scared and then I slowly started.
.. and now, I cannot live without contouring my face like, I have to contour every time I feel you! When I started, I would just do my my cheekbones but now I have realised…see what I am doing now I am constantly going over my jaw as well because I guess, once you get used to that finish, it looks amazing, and you get used to it You know how I got used to it? It’s because when I saw my pictures with and without contour I was like dude, I am not gonna get clicked without a contour, I have to have a bronzer in my bag If I am outside, and somebody’s gong to click or anything, I will you know just sharpen the jawline and hide that double chin and everything going on It’s become a habit now! Okay, so now that we are done with the bronzer, should we move on to the blush? Yeah, for sure I have this one over here, it’s from L’Oréal Paris La Bar A Blush I selected the shade, 08: ‘City Explorer’ for myself Which one are you using? I am using the same shade, I love the shade it’s a very soft shade like corally, peachy, very daytime kind of a shade, I love it actually! Same, and actually usually with blushes, I tend to swipe with this one because it has that little hint of shimmer in it I just go and pat, and I feel like it gives that nice flush So, are you a blush person or a highlight person? A girl can never choose! Both! What about you? I am a big time blush person, I cannot do without blush and I tend to overdo blushes, like if you see my previous videos you will see me red! Like literally, RED! For no reason, but I’m happy having my cheeks red and everything so I have a funda behind blushes and I also really overuse blushes but I think that the theory that I use for it is that blush is the first makeup product that gets worn out, your foundations, concealers and highlighters would last longer your flushes tend to lose product, absolutely any kind of blush especially if it’s powder based, so I smile and use the apples of my cheeks and go crazy because I know that eventually, it will blend out I think it is the case with all kind of powder blushes they kind of just settle by the time you’re done with your makeup the blush is just like 50% there Okay, so our blush is done Did we have a household hack for this one, Simmy? I don’t really have a household makeup hack, but I’m thinking let’s use the same blush as eyeshadow, what do you think? I think it’s a great idea you get a really nice like monochromatic look It’s got a little bit of shimmer to it so it’ll just open up your eyes as well, at the same time I’m just gonna switch brushes I’ve taken a smaller one over here Because like, you obviously need a smaller brush to go with your your eyelid as compared to the blush I’m using a fluffy brush too, have a lot of fluffy blending eyeshadow brushes in my kit, I am like a hoarder of brushes Yes, me too! I feel like I love makeup brushes as much as I love my makeup product Oh god! I never thought I’ll meet someone who’s so much like me in a makeup world! One day I’m going to open my cupboard show you my makeup brushes And I completely relate to everything you just said I’m a huge makeup brush lover! I am sending you a big virtual hug, babe! I’m sending it right back at you! okay, that looks nice! I am very impressed with how nicely went over the lid because the formula went very well with both parts of the face So, you know what I’m gonna do next? We are gonna use a highlighter next, sure but I actually wanted to go ahead and use the highlighter in the inner corners of my eye before we actually go ahead and apply it on the high points of the face I feel like this makeup trick comes in really handy to make your eyes look bigger, and make the inner corners pop I’m also gonna be using a highlighter just underneath my browbone to highlight it a little I tend to forget to do that sometimes so thank you for that reminder! Yeah even I forget doing it! but it does make a difference, if you look at it like the overall makeup look it actually does make a difference oh yeah, sure! So, I think we are done with that and now let’s move on to an eyeliner so I was thinking, let’s use your card makeup hack and you know, create a nice winged eyeliner using that? Yeah! Okay, so I have the L’Oréal Paris Gel Intenza Eyeliner! I’m actually really nervous about this because I’m doing this for the first time Why? Do you not wear your liner often? I am not a liner person, I mean I like to wear smudged liner so, winged liner is something that I generally avoid because you can get one side correct and then the other side is a nightmare So, I try to avoid that That’s why the card will come into the picture, it really helps you get that even wing But, can I tell you that I love a good smart liner And I feel like I can never get those completely right for me, me strangely the wing eyeliner is easier than the smudged liner so I’m envious of your ability to do that! My hands are shaking! Okay, so what I’m going to recommend with the card on your eyes for the perfect winged liner, is just place it there like I had and make sure you match your card in line with where the eyelid ends and then just place it there and drag There you go! I have already got it and then all you have to do is take your gel liner and drag it all the way in, which is really easy to do once you have that tip in place.
And then of course, do the same thing with the other eye also I have managed to do it somehow on one side Okay, I somehow managed to get it, both the eyes! Now, let’s move on to mascara and I have to L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and before that I’m gonna just quickly curl my lashes and I also have a makeup hack I will show you So, i am gonna use the same card the card that we’ve been using throughout, and I will place it right on top of my eyelid while I’m applying the mascara just to just to make sure the the mascara doesn’t apply all over because I think that’s a big problem that we all face I love how we do this go underneath like all the way to the roots of your lashes and then apply mascara doing this because it kind of lifts up your eyelid like that, so it’s easier Wow, that actually does work! so I think, now let’s move on lipstick okay so for the lipstick, before we actually go into applying the lipstick I have a little bit of a makeup hack over here This makeup hack will help you exfoliate your lips, it’ll also make your lips look a little plumper Which all of us really love! All you need for this is some olive oil or any oil that you’re comfortable putting on your lips and your toothbrush! these two things, once you bring them together all you need to do is dip it in and apply it over your lips like 30 seconds and you will see the difference so just dip your brush into the oil I just simply wrap it over your lips you like any smooth, comfortable manner Don’t be very rough on your lips, just easy exfoliation once you’re done with this you can just take a tissue or cotton that you have at hand or cloth and just dap the excess oil off I love how my lips actually turned really soft and very smooth, and I can feel a little bit of tingling sensation on my lips as well so the tingling will die down in just like a minute or so but if you touch your lips you’ll instantly feel the smoothness the dry chapped lips will be completely gone and it is the perfect base for you to now go ahead and apply a lipstick on So, I think now let’s move on to a lipstick So, I have the L’Oreal Paris new signature liquid matte lipstick and the shade that I’m going for is 129, “I Lead” I selected the same shade for myself! So thank you so much for the makeup hack, I’m gonna definitely use it next time! So, that is it for today’s video I hope you enjoyed, and thank you; bye!
