When applying my make-up I used to get stuck on what I should apply first and wondered what the logical order was to apply the different products. Initially I’d begin by prepping my whole face, applying my primer, foundation and powder before starting my brows and eyes. I quickly learnt that this method wouldn’t work. I’m now settled with a routine that works for me and will share with you today 🙂 Here it goes…
- Prime the skin
- Fill in and define brows
- Prime eye lids, apply eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, false lashes
- Contour, cover up dark circles, spots
- Apply foundation
- Complete contour
- Apply finishing powders/sprays
I find that applying your products in this order also helps you to envisage the finished look much easier and helps you clean away any excess eyeshadow that can fall onto your cheeks during application.
I’d love to hear your suggestions and routines too.
Have a lovely day!
