    -eye makeup (shadow first–inner eye, lid, then crease), then liner and mascara
    -concealor, foundation and then powder to set as I use liquid.
    -lips would be last, sadly I barely wear anything in the morning when putting it all on as itll come off with my coffee!

  2. vinna

    concealer and foundation
    eyeliner and mascara

  3. sol

    -Foundation, concealer & powder
    -Eyes (shadow, liner & mascara)

  4. Olaronke

    moisturiser and lip balm
    face – concealer, foundation, powder
    eyes – brows, eyeshadow, liner, mascara
    lips – lipliner, lipcolour
    cheeks – blush
    face – finishing powder

  5. inani

    face – primer, foundation, powder
    eyes – eyebrows, primer, shadov, liner, maskara
    cheeks – blush, highlighter
    lips – lipliner, gloss

  6. Face – moisturizer, foundation.
    eyes – eyeshadow, falsies, eyebrows
    cheeks – blush
    lips – lip balm
    eyes – eyeliner
    face – loose powder, highlighter
    lips – gloss

    I jumped around a lot because sometimes I am lazy to wait (eg, after falsies I would need to wait for it to dry before putting on eyeliner).

    If I am really rushing for time, I would just slap on moisturizer then do my eyes and then go back to foundation! LOL…

    1. moisturizer
    2. eyes
    3. concealer

    eyes alwasy first so i don’t have to worry about fixing my powder/foundation if i have shadow dust on my cheeks. plus, if i’m in a hurry, my eyes are already done. the rest can be done with less precision.

    wow it seems like a lot! haha i can’t believe i do this everyday!

  21. Theresa

    Face – Toner, Face Serum, Pore Minimizer, Moisturizer and Sunblock (a must!). This is followed by foundation, concealer and loose powder. Blusher is always applied last.

    Undereyes – Eye Serum, Day Eye Cream, MAC Moisturecover and follwed by Highlighter.

    Eyelids – Eye Primer and this is followed by eye-shadows, (still don’t feel comfy using pigments considering the klutz I am!) eye-liners and i’d finish off by applying mascara.

    Lips – this is done just before i step out of the house. Lip-liner to line followed by lippy and lipglass or lustreglass.

    That’s pretty much it. Sounds like a L-O-N-G process but cant believe I squeeze all of the above in 30 mins.

  22. Sarah

    Face (TM, concealer, under eye powder)
    Blush then Eyes or Eyes then Blush (varies, depending upon what I’m emphasizing)
    Loose powder over everything (to set and blend/soften everything)
    Highlighter (Meteorites most days)
    Retouch concealer if needed (mine seems to travel for some reason)

  23. Erin/slipnslide

    If I’m doing something that might have a lot of fallout, or might be messy like I’m trying something new, then I’ll do my eyes first. Usually I like to start with my undereyes at least and any blotches or redness, so that if I’m doing a dramatic eye I don’t just look funky.

  24. Lizzii

    face – moisturize, let that set in and put in my contacts and eat :)
    – primer
    – foundation
    – setting powder
    cheeks – contour with bronzer
    – blush
    eyes – shadow insurance
    – pink, green, or blue base [depending on the colors i’m planning on using]
    – then the magic


  25. HoneyBrown1976

    foundation (if I use it)
    eye shadow
    mascara (after curling)
    lip gloss/lipstick
