Apply lipstick or focus on eyes? Where does blush come in? Can you get away with putting liner on after mascara? Here we give you our formula for putting together a perfect face. Of course, not everyone will use all steps, but even if you skip the powder or cheeks, this is a still a good working order to follow!
Choose one, not both. Moisturiser, no matter how light in texture, will interfere with the function of a primer. Also, always remember to get in your sunscreen, whether SPF is built into your primer, moisturiser, or foundation.
Foundation should come directly after primer/moisturise. It is sometimes believed that doing the eyes first will avoid the fallout, please note that fallout is bound to happen when you are using powder eye shadow. When product falls onto bare skin, the pigment can be even harder to remove. It’s better to create a canvas with the foundation and then correct any mistakes as a finishing touch.
Here is where you look at your face with a critical eye and add concealer sparingly. We recommend using concealer only on blemishes or dark circles. You want to wait until after the foundation because foundation will do a lot of the job for you.
Set it all with a very light dusting of translucent powder. This will help make it easier to remove fallout from eye shadow and give the base time to settle in while you apply the rest of your makeup.
For Eyes: shadow > liner > then mascara. For best results, this is the order to follow for applying eye makeup. But always go back and layer, add a little more liner at the lash line, an extra pop of shimmer shadow in the center of the lid, etc.
For Lips: balm > liner > lipstick > then gloss. Smudging liner all over your lips and rubbing it in with fingertips before applying lipstick will help keep the colour lasting longer. And of course, use gloss only if you want!
There are two reasons for doing the cheeks last. One, it ties the eyes and lips together. Two, if you’re using a powder, you can sweep it across the lids after the eye makeup is done to add an extra pop.
