Step by step make-up application process
With all the latest advances in make-up and the application process, some of us have been left feeling a little confused as to what goes first and how to put it on. There are so many other products that you are meant to apply before even applying foundation that I did not know. Which is probably the reason why my make-up always looked ok but not amazing! Don’t worry you are not alone, I had a lot to learn too!
Also it’s worth noting that this process will add time to your routine in the morning, apparently slapping it on in little under 2mins before I left for work is not the correct way… But it will be worth it, I promise you!
Several YouTube videos later…I have learnt the correct process, but clearly I have way too much free time! So that you don’t have to do the same, I have found the pic below from www.makeup.com that details the order in which you need to apply these products and you can even read on as they have a great article on how to apply also. Also check out these simple steps for some great tips too!
I have quite oily skin and would like to point out that since I have switched to an oil-free moisturizer, primer and oil-free foundation, my make-up has lasted much longer than usual- most of the time it even lasts after a gym workout! I have also switched to using a foundation brush to apply my foundation instead of my fingers…! This has been my best purchase, for starters I don’t get foundation on my hands, clothes, mirror etc, so there’s less waste and it just looks better as it gets into every nook and cranny and so it really does give better coverage and a more even application.
Some people also choose to apply their concealer before their foundation for extra coverage, my advice is try it both ways and see what works best for you, I don’t think there is a right or wrong way as everyone is different!
I’m happy to share the products I use too so feel free to ask on our twitter or Facebook page!
