Sister Penny Does Her Own Makeup & Hair for Business

Hi, Sharon Danley here here with another
Two Minute tips, although this week it’s a little bit longer. My sister is going
to demonstrate for us how she currently does her makeup after learning a few
tricks from her older and wiser sister. So here we are with little sis penny
McLean and she’s a former student and I thought I’d show you how after she’s
practiced a lot of the the tips and tricks we’ve talked about how her
getting ready for her day at work goes so what have you done so far penny were
telling me about using a toner on your face now well the reason I used a toner
is after I’ve washed my face mm-hmm before I put on my moisturizer sometimes
my face dries out by the time I get ready to do that so just moistens my
face a bit moist you’re in and I now use a tinted moisturizer and the reason I do
is I find that not only does it keep my face moisturized it doesn’t sit on top
of my skin it’s a moisturizer yeah so ladies whether you are using a tinted
moisturizer or a moisturizer it’s you know I just I like it it’s a good
product and people will ask you what it is it helps to keep it helps to make my
complexion look what would you call it keeps my palate
clear mm-hmm keeps your skin up and it works very nicely with the Burrell and
you’ve been using the inv for your lashes correct yes and you’re very happy
with it and it’s yeah now you gifted me with that and I’ve been using it as
instructed but I still have two bald patches on my on my lashline and one on
each each lash too and I I really think the older that we get things start
stopped developing or working quite like they did when we were younger so I think
that because you’re ten years younger you will get more out of the inv perhaps
and I well least that’s my my assessment at this point and I’m sticking to it
until something changes my mind well I did have a bald patch and it has filled
in well that’s great so oh that’s great so it’s working very well for you and
what are you applying now the dual finish powder do a finish powder Oh
number 42 42 yes now for those that are asking I use thirty-one because I’m a
bit slightly pink undertone and I’m neutral to pink and Penny’s neutral to
warm now I could go either way too you know that they are truly more neutral
than they are more more cool and our skin color is different because you’ve
got some in your sister your sister from a different mister yeah we’re sticking
to that story right so not really but we’re not and I use a sponge applicator
sure and dry I don’t use a brush yeah and when I’m done all that then as
instructed yes because God forbid I vary from that I’ll tell you she films it and
then critiques me I use number 40 to do my eyes in that triangle area yeah and the reason I like this mirror the
way it is is because I can flip it back and forth so I can see the big version
and do it yeah and then flip it and Chuck did I get it right
yeah so that’s that’s why I stick with that yeah and then so that I don’t make
too many big mistakes I use a brush just for my eyes yeah just I find that if I do that then my
eyeshadow stays on better yes we should try and find it before picture somewhere
just don’t want to see it before now what you girls should be doing is
sending sharing private messages to tell her how important it is that she should
put my makeup on for me every day that would make my life a lot easier
yeah it would me do and then like you said see me see shape yeah and I find
sometimes because I travel a lot different lighting is problematic so
what you think looks good and one light doesn’t look in another and like I was
saying to sharon yesterday the beauty of having a technique that you can just
count on is that you can go through the right motions and know what’s gonna be
okay no matter what mirror lighting so don’t try to adjust oh this looks a
little light I’ll put on more just keep with the regime so I have my blush
your foundation my foundation and my highlighter and then from there one
swipe of eyeshadow penny was our model for the hooded eye approach cuz I’m on
the graph and what color is that you’re using kind
of like a Coquette it looks like to me I don’t know it’s one you gave me all I
know is when it runs out I’m in trouble but and so I just I just do though like
one swipe in the pen and do pretty much my whole life mm-hmm and blend and blend
and blend yes you’ve been a good student so far
now comes the complicated stuff or maybe not so and let’s see your palate yes
isn’t it the best it absolutely is now Sharon doesn’t know
this but I used her dining room table to put my little drop of sealant damn tell
her because it’s a glass table so glass theater yeah and I use black with a flat
angled brush that’s a little on the soft side and we make it pretty liquidy now
watch I’m gonna goof this up today right and I do my eyeliner and you get right
close to the lashes right right in there right in there move right inside and
with the hooded eye approach your lash line is more important than it is for a
deep set eye because that’s the only place you’re going to get strength from
your eye because your idak will be sitting down very close to your lash
line or on top of it in some cases so you want to make that nice and strong
which you do so I’ve got the top done and then I and I keep this pretty
liquidy because then it does I don’t get pulling lines or crepeiness mm-hmm and
then I do the under eye and I really push it up so you use it like a for the
waterline yeah yep this is same brush same products once you know just on the
top and the bottom side that cuts jime down having to drop tools pick up a
different tool and a different thing and less to wash yes the Islanders seen it
really does seal well doesn’t it well it does and there’s tricks with it now I’ll
put links to the eyeliners treatment of my my favorite one is cinema secrets
what are you using penny did you get it from Sephora from you got it from me
okay it would it be it would be then a cinema secrets we’re doing this in real
time ladies I thought you’re gonna edit out all my
goofy comments we’ll see you’re going to you’re doing a seminar today on mental
health right yes mental health first aid actually and I teach straight for seven
hours and I don’t get breaks yeah and so this makeup needs to last you
well for eight or nine hours right absolutely it has to know what I’m doing
my under eye yeah I also put a little bit right on my eyelashes mm-hmm
to lift them up yeah and don’t make the mistake I do
occasionally I get too close to my waterline mm-hmm and you don’t have to
do that you just have to just on the very underside of the lashes and that I
can tell when I look in the mirror that I’ve I can’t see any white good yeah
but it doesn’t go right to my eyeball yeah and that’s where a good brush makes
all the difference doesn’t it oh gosh yeah
there’s no question that’s that baby done with then I take a little bit with a smaller
brush a little bit more of a shadow and I just get in there a little bit more
I’m a little bit out to the side yeah because yeah not a lot but
sometimes in here it’s a little whiter mm-hmm with my eyes doesn’t look so
great I hear you yeah so there’s that if I was just going
out for the day I’m not teaching I probably I could end it there and say
it’s okay mm-hmm eyebrows okay so this is where I use a
tiny little dome brush I use a tiny bit of sealant and I use a dark brown I’ve
tried all different colors but the trick here is to wet it a little bit but not
have it really watering right otherwise it’ll go on too dark and too too strong
gotcha you’ve been a good student m’dear and gone are the days of credit cards
and lines like that kind of stuff I don’t I don’t need to do that anymore
there they were good in the beginning to help guide it right or to help me pluck
my eyebrows I would draw it on very strongly and then take away what what do
you belong yeah exactly but now that you’ve been doing it for some time you
know just by rote where to go yeah and so that has cut down in your time oh
absolutely and switching up the color a little bit mm-hmm and taking the reddish
tones out yes I’m happy with that and then so that’s that brown done not too
dark and then what I do is I do have a pencil
mm-hmm just to do that fine little correcting mm-hmm and the pencil mixed
with the powder helps it stay helps it stays longer yeah pencil by itself
ladies just as a reminder it’s a wax-based and it will melt in very humid
weather whereas powders won’t and because penny
has used the dual powder over top of her eyebrows it also acts as a as a support
a sealant and Lord can I tell you the times when I’ve just done one thing by
itself and then I look at my eyebrow halfway through the day and it’s got
polka dots on it or not different things going on and it’s it’s embarrassing it
is what it is right yeah and I’ve gotten over that thing of that
my eyebrows have to be identical yes yes I can’t do that I can only do my best
mm-hmm my goal is not to scare myself or others yeah you don’t want to look like
an AI although sometimes you could be mistaken for that because it’s a
perfectionist perfection but I hear you it’s um but the goal to ladies is not to
not try to get them to look symmetrical Penny’s worked on this for a long well
not a long time but she’s worked at it diligently and practiced and honed and
so now she’s at that stage where if it’s slightly if it’s slightly different it
doesn’t matter and I can correct with the pencil yeah yeah see that’s just a little bit too heavy
we try to get a little closer here and and there’s that little spooley on the
end mm-hmm that I can use if it’s looking a little
dark and it’s not looking exactly the way I want so I can go in and crack good enough for the girls I date if
anybody gets any clothes that have to look at flaws they’re too close to me
right and then I can say back up yeah way too close yeah it’s the advantage of
losing your eyesight right yes and so that’s that done now I’m gonna do my
under lash which I use the same brush for my eyebrows in the same color okay
because the block is a little too dark you you’re under liner should always be
a couple of shades lighter than your liner anyway and that’s why I’m having
just a little bit of sealant on the bottom can keep it lighter mm-hmm look
at me with my mouth open it works better if your mouth so heavy last few videos
I’ve done I I keep meaning to say that when you’re putting on mascara or you’re
doing certain I things when you open your mouth somehow it just goes on there
it’s a universal thing we all do well it’s like when you’re trying to fix
something sometimes it works if you stick your tongue out right yeah kids
know that yes I saw um mascara uh-huh I do that next and last
and I use this I don’t know you can explain in it’s the one with the black
primer and the mascara that goes over top is it L’Oreal L’Oreal yeah yeah and
just a hint what I did cuz one sides primer one sides mascara yeah and I
can’t see without my glasses yeah so I put a little bit of tape on
the primer yeah so that I can pick it up without even looking at it even I know
that’s the side and I do the same with my brushes ones got tape on it that’s
right oh one doesn’t that’s her base right just kinda makes it faster for
organizing tricks yes but what I found is when I go to a party I don’t have to
do anything different to be honest yes I just might dark you know it’s lipstick
and maybe a little bit maybe a little bit slightly darker eye shadow
yeah in the in decides yeah so this is the black primer which i
think is the smart ideas compared to using white primer yep well just for
obvious reasons I use a very light touch on the bottom and I can’t talk while I’m
doing this yeah well you’ve got your lashes back
since you’ve been using the IND and I don’t know if you have pictures of my
non-existent eyelashes but I have a much stronger lash line now with this stuff and on the weekends I often don’t even
wear mascara I just use a little bit of my eyeliner to darken my lashes yeah
yeah you can do that for sure that’s one on on the senior senior makeup look or
no makeup makeup days I just use eye shadow just to yeah because my lashes
are so gray and they’ve lost all their colors
using me just the eyeshadow will just just give them a little bit of a take
away that way too should look and give them a little bit of strength you know
any fuss at all and I think the other thing that two other things one is I
could keep q-tips in business yeah and that’s for a couple reasons one is I
don’t want to cross-contaminate my eyeballs in case there’s a problem too
like I made a little boo-boo there with my mascara I can just touch that up with
a tiny bit of power mm-hmm that’s it and then because I’ve been
plagued with cold sores this fall which tend to come out when I’m stressed or
overly busy which is pretty frequent I use frankincense and peppermint oil
mm-hmm I’m just putting on a little dab on that on one that’s just it’s it’s
gone but it just helps to heal it mm-hmm and I have to stick away from lipstick
which is too bad but that’s it is what it is mm-hmm and so I just use a
straight petroleum jelly mm-hmm and again a q-tip
always on a q-tip yeah and I never stick my fingers in my eyes I always use a
q-tip and you never have trouble with dry
let’s do you um I’m not sure if you’re having the cold sores but you know what
I’ll be honest sometimes I you know I get busy
I don’t drink enough water mm-hmm right water and yeah and vaseline at night
just makes a huge difference now you know that you can take a little bit of
blush and add it to that vessel Matthew and I’ve done that you’ve done that it’s
just not today yeah and with your dark hair to having a
lighter lip with your dark hair it’s fine now if you were great
you need some color to you then I just a little bit of white yeah right here yeah
and here and there in there uh-huh broadens the eyes beautiful sis and the most important
thing is for me some days I look and I go oh crap you know oh yeah other days
it’s like so it is what it is and if I use the same technique I know what
generally looks the same yeah and I don’t strive for perfection I give
myself permission just to be the best I can without beating myself up cuz you
know what that is a heavy burden to carry so that’s me done I just have to
do my hair and I have this tiny little bag because I’m traveling every last
little thing goes into it that pallet is the bomb and I just put a little a stick
on it cuz I’m traveling right now so I put the elastic on just to make sure
that it I put a little elastic on it to make sure it doesn’t open up though and
that’s my makeup yes that goes right into my purse I don’t even have to put
it in my suitcase mm-hmm so that’s good and then my lip care
stuff in a little thing like that because I might apply that later in the
day that’s it just a little just a little and it snap shut yeah and then it
I’ve got mine all my little voodoo potions for my lips
right and that was in my purse as well I’ve got a little tiny bit of garbage
that’s it I’m done okay so now that you’ve seen the before and after I defy
anyone of you to come to me and say I should not get up in the morning and
spend 15 minutes looking my best makeups worth it it’s not half doesn’t
have to be a huge instrumental thing but it’s taking that time to invest in yourself so that you can put your best face forward.

  1. I see Penny has the same funny sense of humor that you do Sharon! You taught her well, in the makeup department! You both are beautiful and lovely ladies! Thank you Sharon, for sharing little sister Penny with us as a teaching tool! Penny, you did a very nice job on your make up! Thank you as well, for sharing your regimen with us!

  2. Wow! I agree with you, makeup is totally worth it. As a wise man once told me any old barn looks better with a fresh coat of paint. LOL 🙂 have a great day

  3. This was a great video. Thanks for the inspiration to just do this. I am alone rarely have visitors. Not complaining about it I am good by myself. I just find it so hard to want to do the make up. This is why I came tonight to watch to try to get myself motivated. I need to go find the no make up make up video for me hoping it is just enough to help but not overwhelming. I did mix some of my foundation in with my moisturizer=Jergins LOL. It really works at least I am getting two things done at once. I am an eye rubber which is so bad when wearing eye make up. My biggest issue is I am missing my lower left eye lid due to a cancer surgery so no lashes on that lid and I am clueless how to help that. Tryig eye liner is totally out for me as it highlights that lower lid is missing Well it is there but just some grafted skin. I only have half eye brows because of age, almost 70, and thyroid issues. And like yours Sharon ,mine are silver as is my hair. I was a red head so I have very pale skin. Thanks again! I started watching your videos because of thinning hair.


  5. Hi Sharon, I too have a life-long problem with having cold sores on my lips when I am stressed. Tell Penny that if she will take a daily dose of L-Lysine 500mg, she will likely never have another cold sore on her lip. This is an essential amino acid that is sold in the vitamin and supplement section of any pharmacy, Walmart, etc. L-Lysine is taken on an empty stomach with a full glass of water each and every day. I use it and said goodbye to those stress-related sores on my upper lip!

  6. A very educational and entertaining video. What a lovely sister relationship. Penny’s offbeat comments are endearing and she must be a very effective workshop leader. Penny’s a lefty,,,,,,wahoo. I was intrigued by the single-colour shadow for Penny’s eyelids. I use the same mirror and when I apply liner and mascara, I flip the magnifying to horizontal and stand over the mirror so that the angle of my face closes my lids enough to have a good visible surface. Penny’s final comments were so encouraging. “Take time to put you best face forward”

  7. Hi ladies,

    Love your videos. Sharon I was wondering what is the sealant Penny is using? Because every time I put on under lash liner it leaks down and I look like a raccoon. Thanks.

  8. Watched this and loved it then clicked off without commenting. Silly me. I want you to know how much you’re appreciated. And I love Penny. Can we have her back some other time? Faye

  9. When does Penny apply her sunscreen? Unless you are living in a closet you need sunscreen evrerday. UV rays penetrate glass. Also here is a tip: if you apply hydrator and then moisturizer on damp skin you will keep moisture in rather than letting transdermal water loss dry out the surface of your skin.Cheers!

  10. Great video Penny and Sharon. I came for the learning and to watch someone else using your methods but stayed through the whole video for the company. You guys are great together and I appreciate the down to earth approach to make up and life. Cheers, Laura.

  12. Cold sores—L-lysine. Taken internally every day. I've been taking it every day for over 40 years at my Drs. recommendation. Didn't think it would work but it seriously does and I had a terrible problem. And it's cheap and readily available. 1,000 mgs daily.

  13. Oh, Sharon, thank you and Penny so much! I really enjoyed watching Penny's routine "roll out"! How lucky she is to have a big sister to share so many tips and tricks with! Hope you both have a wonderful week! Enjoy! Hugs, Mary

  14. Thank you ladies! I continue to be envious of your relationship. I have always been surrounded by testosterone: two brothers, two sons, three grandsons and five brothers-in-law. I cherish them, but I would have loved to have had a sister. Penny, I use a tinted moisturizer too. It works great under the Barelle for me. The combination gives me just that little bit of color correction I need with #31.

  15. Lord this video. Your sis has a great attitude. You were loving and kind I enjoyed the comments between you and your sis. Perfect video. Thank u

  16. A lovely video by two lovely sisters,! A great tutorial and such a pleasure to watch and listen to!
    Thank you both and ‘hats off ‘ to you Sharon, you’re the best!!!
