Dominique, makeup artist turned YouTube sensation
and now owner of her own makeup line, Dominique Cosmetics. (electronic music) Christen, you have $150
budget and only half an hour to shop the entire
Sephora of Hudson Yards. – Okay that makes me nervous.
I love full coverage. I take three hours to get ready
but I think I can do this. Something that’s multi-purpose
so cut down the time and the cost so I got this. – Are you ready? – Let’s go. – Timer starts now. (whistle blows) (electronic music) Alright Christen, so
what is your first step? – The first step is gonna
be the eyeshadow pallet. And I already know what I’m gonna choose because this pallet is multi-purpose. It’s mine, it’s from Dominique
Cosmetics, right here. – Okay, oh. Oh my god. – So we grab this guy right here. – And how much is that? – $44. – $44? – Um it has, I can use it for the face too so this is a good now
I’m going to grab lips. – Lips? – So there is one more
Dominique Cosmetics, lips. I just have to figure out where they are. – This is a new store too so
I’ve actually never shopped at this Sephora. – No? Oh my goodness, if it’s
not here, we’ll just move on. – Well your time is ticking. – Oh my god, perfect. – Oh, oh my gosh. – $18. – Okay perfect, – Now I’m gonna grab a
blush bronzer pallet. – So here we’ve got Urban
Decay, we’ve got Tarte, we’ve got Stellar. (laughs) – Ooh, okay it’s gonna
be $25, that’s a lot. (laughs) Oh, lashes. Definitely need lashes. I’m a glam girl. – She’s a glam girl. – $10, perfect. I just need lash glue. Where’s the lash glue, lash glue? Duo. $9. – So you made a smart move. – Yeah. – This is Sephora
Collection and everything is much cheaper here. – We’re gonna need eye brushes for sure. – Ooh. Alright you picked up a $20 brush. – Oh shoot, are you serious? – Yes. – How much money do I have left? – Alright, you have $69 left. – Okay. – And you’ve picked up
a little bit of a haul so maybe spend it on
brushes or are you move on? – I have to have brushes for my eyes. (laughs) – Fingers won’t do? – No. Fingers won’t do. – So you’ve got two brushes,
an eyeshadow pallet, a lipstick, lashes, and lash glue. And that leaves you at $27 left. – Okay. – And you’ve got 26 minutes. – I think I can find a face pallet. – A face pallet? – Under 20, I think. – Alright. – Let’s try to figure this out. – Let’s find it. – I’m gonna choose this pallet. Oh my god, are you kidding me? – Alright, it’s out. – I think it’s impossible. – Unless you wanna just use your hands and you know, put a brush
back or something else back. – Okay, yeah, I think I’m
gonna have to put a brush back unfortunately. – I’ll take these from you since you’re not gonna be using them. – Okay. (laughs) So stressful. – So I know that this
is all luxury brands. – Oh my god, this is lips. – Ooh, you’re going to beauty on the fly. – Yes, this is going to save my life. – All the tiny-sized products. – You can get a whole brush set for $20. – Smart, smart. – Yes. I’m gonna take a
new lip liner, this is $6. – Ooh, what about a setting powder? – Setting powder? Oh um, that sounds like
an interesting idea but I’m gonna focus on the
eye, like the whole face. – She can’t be swayed. – No, I can’t. I’m all
about the glam eyes. We can go cheaper on the face. – Really? – Yeah. – Okay, you have $43 and 21 minutes left and you need a face pallet? – A face pallet. – What makes a good face pallet to you? – Something that has a
bronzer, blush, highlight all in one. – All in one? – Yeah. That’s under $43. – And you can apply with your hands. (laughs) – Oh my god, if it has a
brush in it, even better. – Okay. – Oh my gosh, $28. You
can bronze and brighten with this so I think
we’re gonna do this one. – And it’s $28? – $28 is not bad. How much do I have now? – You have $15 left. – $15? I’m gonna try to
find a brush for the face. – Okay, we’re back to the brushes. (laughs) That clock is ticking girl. – I know, I know. Oh there’s a CC cream. – IT Cosmetics CC cream. – Oh, $15. Right on the money. – So that is your entire budget. – Is this everything? Oh my gosh. – So you’re gonna have
to let go of something and get another brush or
just use what you have. – Okay, I’m gonna put this back. – So you’re dropping the
Sephora contour pallet? – Yes. – Which means your $28 are back and now what are you gonna do with that? – Okay. – Little baby TooFaced? – Yes. – Okay. – A little matte one. – Okay, so you still need a brush. Anything you’re finding here? – I think we’re gonna go
with this one right here. It’s only $12. – Oh. – Or this one. This one’s a bigger one. – From Sephora Collection. – We’ll use that for bronzer and blush. – Alright. – I think I could do it with this. – Okay, are you ready? – Yeah. (laughs) – If you can keep all
your products together. – If I can keep it all
together, I’m ready. – Alright, let’s go to the station. – Yes, let’s go. I have to take my jacket off. – Oh she’s getting ready. – Let’s get glam. Okay can
you help me open these up to make time go faster? – Okay sure. – Oh my gosh. – What’s the fastest you’ve
ever done your makeup in? – Five minutes. – Five minutes? – Yeah. – Alright. – So I’m gonna start with the crease. I’m gonna take Soft and Sweet. Oh this is a pretty good brush. – The fastest blending I’ve ever seen. – The fastest blending
techniques happening right now. (laughs) – My hand is– – Your hand is shaking. – It’s shaking. – Do you always do shadow on the bottom? – Always, to tie the whole look together. I’m gonna do Cherry Juice just
because she’s cute and new. – It’s like a little ball
of smokey eye, right? – Yeah. I’m gonna take Honey-Dipped. – It’s smart that you
chose your own pallet because you know the colors. You know exactly what you’re working with. – I know what to do. Alright. We’re done. Now we’re gonna do the lashes. – Ooh, that’s one that I forgot to open. – Dup glue on deck. Oh my god. (laughs) – That is a giant glob of lash glue. – Oh my god, yes it is. It’s really gonna stick to
my eye so let’s be positive. (laughs) So while that’s drying,
I’m gonna do my face. And there’s sponges, thank god. – So you’re using the
sponges at the station. – Yes. (laughs) – And this is the IT Cosmetics? – This is an IT cosmetics CC cream. – No one yet has attempted to
do as full of a face as you. – I can really do it. Here we go. – I feel like I have to
hold my breath a little bit. – One side down, one to go. I’m gonna take some bonzer. – Ooh. (laughs) – Oh my god. It’s okay, we
can make it as a contour. (laughs) – You have seven minutes left. – Okay. – Oh, you’re calm now. – I’m good. This is a very nude color. – Liquid lipstick. – Liquid matte. Okay now we need the blush. Honestly I’m scared to use this brush. But we’re gonna do it. – The same that you used to contour with. – Yeah. Okay now I’m gonna do
a little bit of a line so I’m gonna take Chocolate
Mousse high up into the gap right here. How much time? – You’re got four minutes. – What is this, can I use this stuff? – You can use anything at
the station, it’s free. – Oh my god, yes. – So you mixed the water
with the eyeshadow. – Yup, I’m gonna take Blackberry and use it on the lower lashes. Because they need some love too. How many seconds? – 55 seconds. And you’re going back
with a complexion product. – Yeah. (laughs) – And your hands, and the free sponges. – We’re done. – You had 23 seconds to
spare so amazing job. Full face is done. – Yeah, I amazed myself
today to be honest. (laughs) – That was crazy impressive. You did it in about 15
minutes, a full face. – Yeah. – Completely different
from when you walked in. Where would you were this look? – Grocery store, everywhere. (laughs) – Grocery store. – Pick up my son from soccer
practice, like everywhere. – This is Christen
