Sometimes it can be confusing to know which order your makeup should go on.

There’s a lot of room for personal preference here.

After all, you need to do what works best for your makeup routine.

But if there’s an area that you’ve been confused about, consider this advice.

1. Primer First

hair, eyebrow, face, person, black hair,

First and foremost, you want to apply your primer.

That’s an easy, commonsense first step.

Primer has to do its job before anything else can go on.

Primer helps your makeup to have a better finish and have staying power, something we all want from our makeup.

It’s a makeup product that can save you from multiple touch-ups later on in your day.

2. Apply Your Foundation

hair, face, eyebrow, clothing, nose,

After you’ve allowed your primer a couple moments to set, apply your foundation.

Foundation is exactly what it says it is, the foundation for the rest of your makeup to rest on.

It’s important to take your time and apply your foundation carefully.

How it looks is going to affect how the rest of your makeup looks.

If you’re like most women, certain parts of your face will probably need more coverage than others.

3. Conceal Spots and Dots

If you have spots, dots or under eye circles then this is the time to cover them.

Some women apply concealer under their foundation but that generally doesn’t work out well.

When you do that, you’re likely to rub it off when you’re applying foundation.

I’ve always found that it works best to apply concealer after foundation with a gentle touch or a concealer brush.

It can be completely blended in without being blended away.

4. Blush Some Color onto Your Sweet Cheeks

Next comes blush.

By now, your skin is prepped and ready to receive whatever your favorite shade of blush is.

Your makeup should be set enough to receive another product at this point but still at a wonderful, workable point for blending.

The best blush looks are blended carefully so this is the perfect time to apply it.

You can choose to apply finishing powder both now and later or just wait a few minutes longer to take care of it all at one time.
