Applying Anti-Shine

Okay, we have got a actress on set and we're going to get her ready for the shoot. Kim, why don't we get started with some of the cream based make up, and explain the benefits as you're working. >> Yes, what I'm going to do first is apply the anti-shine gel. And, as I said before, you can use lotion or gel that says anti-shine or mattifier. Sometimes it's spelled matte, m-a-t-t-e and I'm going to apply it with a sponge. And I'm going to apply it down the nose, across the cheeks, and on the forehead.

A little goes a long way. You don't need much, but it really will cut that shine a little bit to give you a nice base to begin with for your powder. >> Now, I'm going to show my boyness here, but I believe that's called the T-zone, perhaps? >> It is called the T-zone, the forehead. >> And what's the T stand for? >> Well, because it looks like a T. You know, the forehead and then down here. Okay, it makes sense. >> So, yeah, that's why it's called the T-Zone and that's >> This is where people's oil comes out the most? >> It is, it is, that's where we have larger pores and so that's where, we get the most shine and so, as you can see, we've knocked the shine down a significant amount, but not totally.

So, at this point, I would then move over to applying our powder. Now remember we talked about all the different ways you can apply a powder. I would like to show you what not to do. >> Okay. >> Because most people, remember this little blotting powder comes with the puff. Discard that. What I don't want you to use if you choose to use a brush is a big fluffy one and you'll see people doing this, I don't know, in movies where they'll be playing around and they'll be fluffing it. >> Right. >> And they'll do all this but what that does is get the powder everywhere. So you don't want to use a big fluffy brush, you want to use a compact brush.

One that is, going to lay the powder on across the skin. So instead of fluffing it all over, I'm dragging it across the areas I want to apply it. And this way, I'm not getting powder all over her clothing, as I'm applying the powder. >> Now, are there any benefits, do you ever like to see what the camera sees, like look at the monitor as you're doing this? >> I do. I love to look at the monitor and see where the hotspots are. Or what I like to say is, work with your stylist or work with someone on the set with you and say, would you check and see if I'm getting that hot spot right under the eye or on the eyelids.

And you can say to your talent, please close your eyes for a moment, I'm just going to apply a little powder to you to cut the shine. I tend to not say I'm going to put make-up on you, if it's a guy. I say, I'm just going to cut the shine with, a little bit of, anti shine and they go, oh, okay. >> That sounds like technology. >> Yes. >> Like, oh, anti-shine and cutting, great! >> Right, don't use the term makeup, it puts them in a panic unless they're used to being on camera, but you can see now how her skin. Looks very, very matte and it's not going to be reflecting. Ideally at this point, if you had a makeup artist on set, they would apply a little blush and lipstick and, and make her look a little warmer.

But, let's just pretend that we're going with a natural look. And at least we've cut the shine, so she doesn't look all worried and nervous and like she's sweating and it's super hot in there. >> And how often does this need to be reapplied? Like, obviously, you do this before the cameras roll up front, but do you find yourself reapplying throughout the day? >> Yes, absolutely, depending on the temperature. If it's humid and hot, you're going to apply it every, sometimes every hour. And you know, if not sometimes it can last for awhile. Now my preferred method is with a powder puff and I like to use a large powder puff.

And I go in here and I load this powder puff. It's got a little nap, a little edges to this powder puff. It's velour. And we are going to load it and then press it into the skin, and this is an easy way to quickly get this on and boom, we're done. And I love using the powder puff. You're not going to, you know, press so hard you hurt them. You're just going to press it in lightly and you're going to get underneath the eyes. So you can ask them to just close their eyes and get all of the little crevices.

It tends to get very shiny here. It tends to get shiny here and up in the temples and sometimes even the eyelids. So, don't be afraid to use the edge to get right here and take care of that. So now you know how to apply it with the powder puff, with the sponge or with your brushes. >> Of course, there are lots of benefits to working with a make-up artist or stylist. Remember, if you want your work to look its best, I like to bring a make-up artist on set when I'm working with some of my corporate clients and I want everyone to come off as strong and powerful and vibrant or, when working on my public service announcements for our clients, this is just a great way to really raise the overall production value.

Kim, if folks want to get in touch with you, or find out more about working with you, what's you're website? >> kimfoley.com is my website and kimfoley@kimfoley.com is my email. >> Great. So, be sure to look up Kim and make sure you explore, expanding your kit because after all, if you can make your subjects look great, the overall production value of your video is increased.
