Makeup, just like art has no particular order. How you look is all that matters. Still a particular order of makeup is followed to make sure the products are used for the correct purpose. If you are a complete beginner with Makeup, following a particular order of Makeup will save you from a Makeup disaster.
Here I am with a step-by-step beginner’s guide of correct order to apply Makeup.
The correct order to apply Makeup :-
After cleaning your face and finishing up with your skincare routine, you can apply the following products in the order. Choose products of the brands you like, or the products that suit you.
1. Eyeshadow and Eyebrow makeup
You should start with Eyeshadow and Eyebrow products first. If you make any mistakes or mess everything up, it can be easily fixed. Doing this step later may ruin your Makeup look and it will get hard to fix it.
The next step is to apply Primer. Primer helps in making skin smooth, even and may also help in reducing pores. You can actually skip this step but if you are aiming for a flawless Makeup look, make sure you use a Primer.
As a part of skincare, if you did not apply Moisturiser already, you can use it before Primer.
After Primer, apply your Foundation. It should match your skin shade, you can apply it on your face with your fingers or simple use a brush/makeup applicator sponze. Apply it evenly on your face and blend it properly.
->If you use any cream Contour Products, use it after step 3 or step 4.
Now apply a Concealer of either the same shade as that of your foundation or a shade lighter. Apply it under the eyes, on the face marks and areas of your face you want to Highlight. Blend it properly. Concealer can also be used as an Eyeshadow base.
You can either use a Compact powder or Translucent powder to set your Makeup. Always use a brush or some sponze to apply. Do not apply a lot of powder, just enough amount to set your Makeup. In summers it better to apply a translucent powder than going for a Compact powder.
6. Eyeliner and Mascara
You can apply your Eyeliner and Mascara after you are done with powder. You can put on Eyelashes as well if you want to. It would be even better if you use an Eyelash Curler to curl your eyelashes before using Mascara. Never apply more than two coats of Mascara as applying more coats can make your eyelashes clumpy.
7. Lip Makeup
Now you can do your Lip makeup as you like. Firstly outline using a Lip liner or pencil if you want your Lip color to look more defined. If you want your Lip color to stay on for longer, use a Matte Lip color instead of glossy ones.
8. Blush and/or Bronzer
Give your cheeks some color to enhance them. Do not overdo that, just apply little amount, use a good brush to apply. Bronzer is used to give a contour effect to your face and the Blush enhances your cheeks. Always apply these with Brushes otherwise they can look made up or give unnatural look.
Now highlight your face. Use highlighter brush to apply it. Apply it slightly above your cheeks, on your chin, a slight amount above your lips and yes on the tip of your nose. You can use a liquid Highlighter or a Powder one. You can even use both. First use the Liquid one and put some powder highlighter above it. This can be helpful for those who want it to stay for longer time.
10. Setting Spray
At last you can apply a Makeup setting spray. This will help in keeping the Makeup in place for a longer time. This is not a necessary step but you can use it if you want your Makeup to stay as it is for long.
