here everyone okay so today we’re going to be going through the basics of makeup with cheers Foundation now how do you go about finding the right foundation if he really depends on your skin type your skin color the undertones where you match it some people like to match it to the neck some people like to match it to the chest it’s entirely up to you there is no wrong or right way to do it whatever works best for you in this tutorial I’m going to clean my face and show you how to apply makeup well the foundation and I’m going to show you two different ways because I’ve done lots of videos on it so I’m going to focus I’m using a foundation brush on one side and I’m really going to show you how to use your fingers on another side because your fingers are such a great tool for makeup you can massage it in you can blend it in so beautifully so let’s just make a start okay so I just primed my skin and I’ve used em release as a primer for me primers are kind of they’re a very personal thing if you have a very very oily skin very oily you can use milk of magnesia as a primer or turn the face wipe the foundation will go over it and it will help prolong it otherwise pick a primer that suits you but try and stick to like so if you’re using a silicone foundation try use a silicone primer because you’ll make it more last longer I’m going to be using a base fast foundation and I’m going to be using shade six it’s just a gorgeous foundation and I’m going to be using one pump of it I’m going to start off on this side of the face just using my fingers and I’m just dotting it onto the skin and then I’m kind of smearing it onto the face onto the nose underneath the eyes without really pulling at the skin because sometimes foundation alone is enough to even out the skin tone underneath the eyes if you don’t need to use concealer don’t use concealer and when you’re going in down with strokes tick if you’ve got facial hair or that light kind of facial hair going in and down with stroke is really for but you can also really massage it into the skin so that you’re really working it into the skin and there are certain areas on the face for me it’s here on the top of the cheekbones where I really really like to sort of massage in the product and then Pat the product in because I have areas of pigmentation and high colour on my upper part my cheekbones you can also take a bit over the eyelid if you have any discoloration you can use a primer that but you can see working it into the skin gives a really really gorgeous effect and you know we’re all taught foundation brushes are amazing and they are but your fingers are wonderful too so let’s use a foundation brush regardless of the foundation brush that you use you will probably go in downward strokes I’m going to be going down with strokes I’m obviously using my own foundation brush which is number one going downward strokes because it lays any foundation onto the face and doesn’t kind of clog in the hairs but if you’ve got more combination skin or more sort of normal to combination to oily you can buff it into the face take it gently over the eyelid and right here on the nose you can really buff it in really depends on personal preference again you want to be you’re looking at kind of here’s a high colour so I want to stipple it just over this area here but however you do it you want your base to be as gorgeous and as flawless as possible it should look like skin the foundation that I’ve chosen the others fast one has a real real glow to it without the use of pearls or shimmer or artificial shine it’s just a gorgeous gorgeous glow so I pretty much finished with the base when we don’t have a beard make sure that you’ve come down here so that everything kind of molds in and blends into one if you’re matching it with your neck if you’ve matched it to your chest then you can bring some down onto the neck if you need to or you can use a bronzer to adjust it but the goal with foundation is not to obliterate the face and to hide every single thing is to even out the skin tone so that you get this gorgeous kind of glowing complexion or matte complexion whatever you want but it’s to create the base you’re working with the base I often will put foundation over the lips or use a lip erase so that I can redraw back in easier but it’s up to you but this is the basics of Foundation and you can see this side was just smoothed in with my fingers this side was used with the foundation brush depends on your preference but this is the basics for foundation and now in the next one we’ll move on to concealer because that’s the real tricky one so I’ll see you in a minute bye bye we’re going to start with concealer concealer should make you look better if it doesn’t make you look better don’t use it or you’re using it wrong it really depends if you don’t have any dark circles under the eyes why use concealer if you don’t need to if you’re trying to conceal something on your face like a birthmark or acne you need a concealer that’s exactly the same shade as your foundation so if you put something light tight you’re going to draw attention to it which we don’t want for this tutorial I’m going to be covering some under-eye circles and talking you through in other areas that you may want to kind of conceal or highlight when you’re dealing with concealer you can pick a concealer that is your the exact shade of your foundation or one that’s a shade or two lighter but on the side of caution for this tutorial I’m using purely concealer not a corrector which is a great product to use because I’ve used the alias fast foundation I’m going to use the same Alice fast but I’m going to use it in a concealer fall I take in Shea v which is lighter than the foundation which was a shade six now I hope you can’t see it so much here but I have a bit of discoloration and darkness just here on the part of the eyes so why would I want to conceal all the way around when I don’t need to so I’m going to put the concealer right here just where there is a darkness and you see here I’m going right into the inner karna part here because this area gets dark and by highlighting this or or putting some lighter color in there it will brighten up the face and make it look a bit lovely now I’ve put some concealer here I like to leave concealer on the face for a little while so that it starts to warm up and it gets a little bit tacky so it’s easier to blend now you can also put perhaps a little bit right on the bridge of the nose just for highlighting purposes and you can also come up here just a tiny bit as well if you have any spots to cover now is the time to do them if you have limes down the corner of your mouth um shadows you can place some concealer into the crease and it will lift it up and give it a better kind of look now I’m just going to blend this now I’m just cleaning off this concealer I’m just can use my fingers because your fingers are your best tool and you can see I’m patting it in I’m trying to stay within the discoloration I’m not trying to bring it out too far other than where there is darkness and another really nice way is rather than bringing you concealer too far out is to bring it down sort of down here along the sort of sides just where the bridger that are they sort of sides of the nose on because it gives this inner part of the face a really nice kind of lightening effect so I’m patting it and I’m bringing it down as well sometimes it’s discolorations on the outside corner of the ice a lot of us get it I get it you can put some concealer there and what I like to do is this patting motion rather than this wipe because suddenly I can get too much product on so by patting it and even taking a bit off I can kind of really just know where I’m putting the foundation if if that makes sense and don’t forget to make sure that you blended everything in so concealer here as you can see should really brighten and lift the ice but it shouldn’t be any reverse circles you don’t want that again if your concealer is causing you more problems don’t use it I have purposely used Els fast foundation and the concealer the concealer because they’re so skin friendly they are expensive so there’s no point pretending that they’re not but they’re worth every penny in my opinion you should I think with base you really should spend a little bit more money so you can get a really gorgeous effect but that’s how I would conceal if you have more darkness then you conceal where the darkness is and the more dark you are the more you really want your concealer to be more toward your skin color or use a corrector which has a peach or bisque undertone because that will really brighten but I don’t need any more correcting than this other than some foundation on your ears because I get red ears you don’t want to gorgeous face and big already HD so don’t forget that but otherwise we’re going to leave this now we’ll move on and I’m going to show you how to set your makeup properly so that you can achieve either a matte look or a gorgeous Geely finish so I’ll see you in a second

    Very good video,can u suggest a concealer to cover hyperpigmentation on cheeks?

  • Bobbi says:

    I am combination skinned with bags under my eyes and pale skin, not quite a vampire  paleness but I do have to buy Ivory coloured foundations (some are still  bit too dark for me though); I also have acne etcetera. Is there any particular brands that are good for pale skin that isn't going affect my acne negatively. Currently I'm using Maybeline's new " Baby skin instant fatigue blur" with a bit of my foundation ( New York colour all day long smooth skin: classic ivory). I also use miss sporty's palest concealer stick and MUA's colour correct powder.

    Any idea's are helpful 😉

    stop being so damned adorable, mr. goss. you're killing me.  love that concealer trick of taking it down the inside quadrant of the face (rather than across the undereye laterally). brilliant again!

  • Nina Marie says:

    Thank you for being a voice of reason in the YouTube beauty scene. I do enjoy a lot of the "guru" channels but you are by far the one whose opinion and advice I value most.

  • Ashley Blake says:

    That wink though 😊

  • Rebecca Searles says:

    I have found that concealor worksbest on blemishes. For dark or purple circles u der the eye NYX makes a great corrector that vanishes circles yet never looks fake. Eazy peasy

  • Bri Archer says:

    My face is quite pale (although I didn't now that) but my neck/chest is medium tan so it looks weird :/

  • Hela Odinsdottir says:

    So much better than these beauty guru's who are giving such false tips! I've learnt so much from you thank you!

  • qfusarah says:

    I love your tips and tutorials but as a woman I would love to see more applications on female models of all different skin colours and shapes. It is hard for me to identify with what you are trying to say when you do it on yourself. Thanks and hope to see some soon.

  • Tesla Reeves says:

    You should make a video about bridal makeup tips and mistakes

  • MsJj321 says:

    Question,do you put concealer first or foundation? Never put on make's my first time

  • Meg Cramer says:

  • Saikurii says:

    I am a fan of quite a few beauty channels, but for a voice of reason and true lessons I always find myself going to Wayne and Lisa Eldridge. I learn so much more.
    Thankyou Wayne!

  • Kristina Diduraite says:

    literarily, i am so amazed !! this is probably the one and only make up artist that really always goes straight to the point and provides so many useful tips. I badly want to get this Ellis Faas foundation..:( ( p.s I 100% agree that every woman should invest more money on the good coverage. when you think the foundation lasts a year – so it is not such a big expence to spend 60£ on foundation on one go and then as a result you have amazing , flawless skin!!) Back to Ellis Faas foundation- unfortunately, the only stores that supply it in the UK are Selfridges and Liberty London… I live in Scotland and I am a bit afraid to order it online. my holy grail foundation at the moment is Estee Lauder (shade sand) . do you reckon that Ellis Faas shade (S1 02l fair) would be possibly the most suitable for me? Many thanks:)))

    you are so amazing and honestly better than most of the beauty "gurus" on here. Like Ive been watching your videos on foundations and what not and it's helped me so much. I used to have this problem which was looking cakey no matter what foundation I used and what primer but you said switch to a moisturizer. bam. no more cake face! you also helped me with my awful brow techniques 😂😂

  • musicarmina says:

    Thank you so much for your informative videos! I do have a bit of a dilemma however: my neck and chest are much lighter than my face, and when I apply foundation that matches my neck and chest, my face is often grey or ashy looking. What can I do to avoid this?

  • IAmAGhost says:

    It seems the side where he used his fingers got better coverage. Brushes absorb too much product.

  • Samantha Snider says:

    Whenever I use a brush to blend my fountain it gets all splotchy and everyone always tells me "um… I can see your fountain" or "wow you wear a lot of makeup" I have some pimples and i just don't know what to do tips please😓

  • TooStrong Alex says:

    This is so helpful! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • Anne Barker says:

    I was never instructed to really work my foundation into my face like you have said. OMG! it makes all the difference! I have avoided wearing foundation all these years, and finally now I know how to make it look natural! Thanks you Mr. Goss.

  • Anne says:

  • Lara Moutinho says:


  • Truth Seeker says:

    Idk or care if ur gay or straight ur amazing and I am inspired by you either way. idk why that has to have anything to do with ur talent, personality, humor, & awesomeness. being straight doesn't determine whether I'm cool or drool. I am so scared that u r sick though ur newer vids ur very skinny & I don't want u to be. I don't want you to go away. you have changed my life & I relate to the pervy way you joke with ur friends. That's how I am..<3

  • Roxanna Tice says:

    So I am hoping you might be able to answer a question for me. I have a very florid skin tone. My face is red pretty much everywhere (mostly around my nose, mouth and cheeks). How do I achieve a more even facial tone? I dyed my hair black and it helped, but I have been asked by friends and family to not do so again.

  • Phoenix Moon says:

    Off topic comment:
    After watching your most recent video and then watching this one*, your dramatic change by just changing what probably seems (looking back) like very small things, is very apparent in more than just superficial ways. In this video you seem so unhappy and about to burst into tears. In recent videos (even when recorded on a day after a long and busy week with little sleep and recovering from a cold/flu/bug) you seem so full of energy, confident, healthy, happy with how you appear and present yourself, are more so your genuine authentic self, outgoing, open, pushing yourself forward (rather than trying to hide yourself and push yourself back), proud of achievements from the very small to the very big, feeling able to try new things and experiment (more), there is a sparkle in your eyes and a smile that takes over your entire being that is so big and intense (even when minimised!) that seems to want to jump forward, you want to invest in others, and in yourself and your ongoing present and future happiness in a healthy way -anything you do change (from minor things like toothpaste to more major things like diet and cosmetic procedures) appears to be after careful consideration and research. It seems that on previous videos you might be able to interact with just the UK, and now I think that the multiverse would be too small for you to conquer (you've already done the world!)! I hope you not only read this comment, you also continue to produce videos and let me watch them. If you decide to 'push me off your boat', or if you don't, I wish you well and that you continue to do what you do, and do it your way. Thankyou for both showing and talking about your changes on youtube, sharing your expertise, and for allowing me to join in on all of this. Llongyfarchiadau a pob lwc.

    *I needed a bit of advice regarding some probably very common issues I'm having. I'm a bit new to using foundation(+powder) as I used to use just a stick concealer in certain areas that I needed(+powder) and so going back to basics seemed a good idea.

  • Housefrau Lori says:

    You are amazing. I really enjoy watching your videos. I have learned so much from you. You feel like a friend. 🙂

    you're amazing

  • snow_girl says:

    I've watched many videos but I am still unsure about the undertone of my skin. When I google cool skin undertone vein, I saw that pictures of the veins aren't really BLUE blue. not that I think they would be but yea. I know skin tone and undertone are different but it's still kind of difficult for me to, say, spot a cool undertone among people with darker skin. I am an Asian myself and is thinking of getting a foundation for the first time, so I really wish to know other ways to identify my skin undertone.

  • Sandra Horas says:

    I love your tutorial ! Thank you so much !!!

  • Belluci says:

    Useful as usual ! Thank you

  • G B says:

    Ah yes the days before the beautyblender was born. Fingers or brushes lol also now every beauty guru does the triangle concealer thing and that's how I've learned to do it but listening to this video really put a meaning behind concealer for me. I mean I guess it depends if you also use the concealer as a highlight

  • alsha sgr says:

    I've been doing my makeup all wrong lmao

    Does anyone know what video comes next ? I'm this video Wayne says there is a "next" video that shows you how to set your make up with powder ! I can't seem to find it. Anyone that can point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
    Love you and your videos Wayne.

    Thanks…would you use concealer to cover redness on a mature face?

  • shayna mcarthur says:

    Your voice and accent is very lovely and soothing. Great tutorials btw. You clearly really know your stuff. Thanks for making videos

  • Le Wendigogo says:

    I feel you on a spiritual level about the area above the cheekbones. I always wondered why there was always a patch of pink that showed through when the rest of my face was covered.

    Nice tutorial as always.

  • Ryeo 서연 Dallantines says:

    It's been a while now since I'm watching your videos. In the beginning I was a bit sceptical because you're showing things completely different than all knowns make up gurus here on YouTube. Yet, while I'm watching you, I start to think that you show the most beautiful, natural and easy way for applying makeup same as explaining it's basics. I really like your channel. I like the way you speak of it and tell people that they don't need THAT much on make up on their faces. I really, really like it. I like this different, natural look of makeup. It's no surprise you have so many viewers and subscribers. Thank you for that and continue your amazing work 🙂

  • Rainy Tedandeffi says:

    What foundation are you using here Wayne it looks lovely

  • Angel Raven says:

    What should I do if my foundation is a tad bit too dark? I am using 310 Sun Beige, and I end up using ivory colored powder to even it out. is there anything else I should end up using? I can't really keep on buying foundation. don't really want a drawer full of unused bottles…

  • Ann Margareet says:

    i love how you pronounce massage.great videos

  • Jacqueline Werner says:

    This is the third or fourth video I've been watching on your channel, and I'm a fan already.
    After watching so many others I've been feeling like it's soooooooo wrong to apply make up with your fingers like I've been doing for 12 or so years… now I know I can keep doing it or at least blending it after using the Beauty Blender.
    I love your videos and your honesty and your way of explaining things.
    Wayne, you have a new subscriber and a big fan in Germany ✌❤😌

  • Janeece Smith says:

    I have a big???
    I am almost 49 so I am dealing with under eye hallows, broken capillaries and I love the idea of highlight under eye but I noticed that when I use it it, crease's and makes​the fine lines more prominent. what is the best way to camouflage hallows? Also after I apply most foundation and highlight my eyes appear red. Would that be because the shade IM using is too light? It matches my neck, so I have been using eye drops to help with the redness.

You are very kind and very knowledgable and confident and it shows in every video. truly phenomenal channel, thank you.
