If you weren’t aware there is a proper order to accomplishing a flawless face of makeup. You are probably wondering what’s first is it lipstick or eyes? At what point do you apply blush? Is it okay to apply eyeliner after mascara? Here are the 6 steps
1: Primer or Moisturizer
The key is to choose one, and not use both. Moisturizer can ruin the entire purpose of primer. It’s also important not to forget the spf, so make sure you are using a primer, moisturizer, or foundation that includes this.
Some may think it makes more sense to do the eyes first in order to prevent the eye makeup from landing on your freshly founded skin. This is not the case. You should apply your foundation all over in order to create a even canvas.
Here is where many people mess up. Less is more! Only put in spots where necessary. Dark circles and blemishes are your focal point here.
A good setting powder is key. Lightly dust a translucent powder all over your face. This helps prevent creasing during a long night our or day at work, and it keeps everything in place.
5: Eyes or lips
This step is up to you. I personally like to apply my eyes first, because I tend to be more experimental with my lip color and want to base this decision off how dramatic my eyes are.
For Eyes: shadow > liner > then mascara. Don’t be afraid of layering!
For Lips: balm > liner > lipstick or gloss. It’s a good practice to smudge your liner over the entire lip. It helps for blending with your main color.
Do this as a final touch to tie it all together. Make sure you use the “2 finger rule” and only apply blush up to 2 fingers from your nose.
7: Setting Spray
Get a great setting spray to complete your masterpiece. This will keep sweat and just all day elements from ruining your finished product.
