OMG, I am the same way: face, eyes, blush, lips! I think I do the face first to have a “blank canvas” to start with…then the eyes because they take the longest! LOL

Same – unless i’m using glitter shadows like Barry M, then I do my eyes first so I don’t mess up my foundation

same here! i don’t want to mess up the cheeks while doing the eyes, but i don’t want mess up the corners of the eyes while adding the foundation.

eyes first, then foundation, blush and lips last. I find if i do eyes first i can sweep away and fall-out after when applying foundation and powder.

I do the same thing, it is faster this way. Well it beats removing foundation and reapplying, blending, etc

Eyes, Face, Lips – I used to start with face, but I find it’s easier to clean up any eye make-up remnants if I do my face afterwards!

Eyes, moisturise, blush and last of all, lips 🙂

I don’t use loose powder when applying e/s so it’s easier for me to wipe away the shimmer/glitter fallout before doing any face stuff 😀

Foundation,blush,eyes,lips. I know that it would probably be easier to start w/the eyes, but I’m an old dog. 😉

Face, eyes, lips. Face always first as some days i can find it to be tedious, plus i’m the type of person to think best for last (eyes and lips). And before anyone asks, i dont have a problem with fallout, so this routine seems most logical to me :P.

My routine is face first [bronzer/blusher included], eyes, brows, lips, lashes.

I’ve tried different routines, but this one just works best for me. I don’t ever really have much fall out because the primer holds product very well, and I always start with very little and then pack and build. I always do my lashes very last because I feel like they are the “pop” to the whole look. I was in a rush once and I forgot to put my mascara on and it made my whole look seem dull and unfinished.

How do you decide on what blush to you use before you do your eyes? Do you already have the whole look in your head?

I find it so hard to go from blush to eyes, lol!

Hmmm…the method to my madness!

I mattify my face first with Cosmedicine’s Medi-Matte (a oily girl’s dream), then eyebrows, then eyes, then I set my face with a dash of powder, finally lipgloss. No blush ever! I never understood the fascination with blush. Hmmm…blush phobia?

Hey Tina! How aer you doing?

I do eyebrows pretty early in my routine, too 🙂

Blush is so fun, really! I never used to wear it, but now I can’t go without it.

Face, Blush, Eyes, Lips. I don’t really have any blush options(Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Bricks is what I use), so after I do the blush I figure out what I want to wear, put on my clothes then finish eyes and lips to match the outfit.

face, cheeks, undereye concealer, eye makeup, then lips. I don’t think I have a reason for that order.

face, eyes

and if I’m in the mood I’ll wear blush and lipcolor. otherwise I’ll just happily leave it bare 🙂

EYES FIRST ALWAYS! even if I’m doing a natural eye I still do eyes.. them face, blush, bronzer, lips. 🙂

Face first, then eyes. I change up my eye makeup every day, so I have to judge what cheek and lip colors to use based on whatever I do on my eyes. :]

First I do face.. I do concealer, liquid foundation, mineral powder foundation as powder, mineral powder concealer, bronzer, blush, hilite. Next, eyes (don’t wear eyeshadow on a daily basis so fallout isn’t a problem).. eyeliner, mascara. Last, lips. I start with my face bc it takes 90% of the time most days.
