What's the Best Order to Apply Makeup?

No introduction necessary! I got this simple questions this morning, here is the answer! 

1- Skin Care 
This is a vital part of your makeup regimen, cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturize!

2- Facial Sun Screen
Seriously, do it. You will thank me in 20 years. 

Mary Kay
Mineral Eye Shadows
3- Eye Makeup Primer 

4- Eye Shadow
I put on the eye shadow first because of fall out. If you have any dust from your shadow on your face after applying your eye shadow wipe it off with a makeup remover. 

5- Eyeliner 

6- Mascara
I do one coat of mascara before everything else, and one right at the end. 

Laura Geller
The Real Deal Concealer
7- Facial Primer

8- Facial Concealer
This can go on before or after foundation, every one is different. I prefer to put it on before because I think it helps me get a more blended look.

9- Foundation
This can include CC/BB cream, Liquid or powder foundations. Whatever you use, it goes here. 

10- Under Eye ConcealerOnce again this can go on before or after your foundation, but I like to do the concealer under my eye after foundation. 

Tyra Beauty
Light in a Stick/Sculpt in a Stick
11 - ContourYou can use any powder, bronzer, or cream that is darker than your natural. Contouring takes a lot of practice. There are so many ways to contour I don't think anyone can say what is right or wrong. Do what you love.

12- Highlight
You can use any powder, highlighter, or cream that is lighter than your natural skin tone. It would customarily be shimmery but it doesn't have to be. Just like with contouring you should highlight in a way that makes you feel beautiful and confident. Whatever you like is the right way. 

13- Blush 
Lipstick Queen
Apply on the apples of the cheeks and then lightly apply a dash on the upper cheek bone back to the ear. If you don't like the back to the ear look, don't do it. It's as simple as that.

14- MascaraCoat two... or three :) 

15- Setting Spray/PowderI recommend a powder for oily skin and a spray for dry skin. However if you have normal or combination skin you can really choose whatever you want. Translucent Powder and Setting Powder are the same thing.

16 - Lipstick 


In the end I do it this way because it is most effective when apply other peoples makeup. Dow hat works for you and what you love. That's all that matters in the end.
