Getting your makeup to look the way you want and to stay put all day long is both an art and a science. You need to apply your products in the correct order so they can do their jobs and stay in place throughout the day. Following the right order will also make it easier to apply makeup and get the look you want. Here are some tips to guide you through the process of putting on your makeup.
How to Put Makeup on Your Face
The first thing you should put on is primer. Primer helps foundation slide onto your face and can help control redness and reduce the size of your pores so the foundation works better.
If you have blemishes that you want to cover up, you should apply foundation and then concealer. If you put on concealer and then foundation, the act of rubbing the foundation on your face will disturb the concealer. Putting on foundation first can help your concealer stay where you want it so you don’t waste any of the product.
If you want to use bronzer, put it on over your foundation. If you also want to use blush, put it on after the bronzer. Bronzer is used for contouring and will not look right if you put it on over blush.
How to Put on Eye Makeup
You should do your eyebrows next. Use an eyebrow pencil or powder before you put on your eye makeup so you can use your eyebrows as a guide. Your eyebrows will frame your eye sockets and give you a clean arch that will help guide you when you apply eye shadow and contour your eyes. If you make a mistake and make your eyebrows too dark, you can fix it with makeup remover and not have to worry about ruining your eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara.
Next, put on your eye shadow. This will build intensity. Then put on eyeliner, and finally mascara. Doing it in this order will help because it is easier to put on eye shadow and eyeliner with bare lashes and you will be better able to judge how much mascara you need after you have put on your other eye makeup.
Finish with Powder
Put on powder last. This will set your makeup and leave a layer of powder that will absorb the oils your skin produces. Use a large powder brush and dust the powder over your forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose.
