Makeup 101: Application Order

For the last few days we've been going over Makeup 101, my recommendations for a beginner's makeup kit. On day 1 we went over face products, day 2 was color makeup. Today I thought we should actually talk about what order I apply everything, because it isn't in the order that I showed the products!

Makeup 101: Application Order

You can see from the flow chart, I start with deciding how much coverage I need that day. Am I going to be wearing BB Cream or a full face of makeup with foundation? I prep my skin first, and while the moisturizer or BB Cream sinks in I do wait a few minutes.

Next, I start applying my eye makeup. I apply this before working on my face because I'm great at getting shadow to drop onto my cheeks. Even when I'm not using super powdery shadow. Yes, I'm that good. So, I can easily wipe off the fall out and then move on to the rest of my face.

Do you apply your makeup like this? What do you do differently?

I apply make-up in this order: Moisturizer, concealer, powder, bronzer, blush. Eyebrows, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara. Lip balm, lip liner. Done.

I am also doing the face first, then eyes and lips.

Yes, I do mine like this. Such a good idea to do eye makeup first.

Moisturizer, powder (yes, before foundation), foundation, eye makeup (if any), powder, brows, lips. I want to be better at doing an entire face in 15 minutes!

Eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow, done. That's all I use after I moisturize.

I start my makeup with a fresh washed, toned, and moisturized face. Face first, concealer, blush, and a highlight right above my cheekbone. On to eyes, I line my bottom lash line with dark brown eyeshadow and I line a little bit of the outer corner of my top eyelid too, a light shimmery colour in the corners of my eyes, 1 coat of lengthening mascara and 2 coats of volumizing, and I brush my brows into place. For lips I simply put on lip balm and if I am in the mood of a lip colour I usually just use lip liner as lipstick.
