-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!

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

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

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…

face: prep everything with moisturizer
eyes: all my eye make up, then concealer for undereyes
cheeks: blush or bronzer
lips: balm and then gloss


Wow, I feel so weird and backward. I go:
Face(primer, foundation, concealer, powder)
Cheeks (blush, bronzer to contour)
Eyes (base, shadows, liner, mascara)

Face: Primer, foundation, concealer, loose powder, glow powder
Cheeks: Brown/Bronze blush, pinkish blush on apples
Eyes: Primer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrows
Lips: Lipstick, gloss

if i do a full face this is my routine…

1. moisturizer
2. eyes
3. concealer
4. foundation
5. cream blush (learned this from kim k and her MUA)
6. powder
7. powder blush
8. lips
9. eyebrows

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.

Lips: blam
Face: Select Tint, concealer, MSF natural
Eyes: prime, lid, crease, eyeliner, mascara
Lips: LipStick and Gloss

1. Prime eyes, lips, and face (always! especially for my oily skin)

2. Apply lips (sometimes lip liner, lipstick, gloss; most times just a little lipstick and gloss)

3. Do eyes (sometimes shadow and liner (primer provides a nice neutral color), always mascara)

4. Apply foundation and concealer (sometimes concealer, foundation, and some more concealer if I want extra coverage)

5. Do cheeks (sometimes bronzer, always blush)

pre: moisturize around eyes, then full face, lip balm

face: concealer, foundation
eyes: primer, base, shadow/pigment, liner, mascara, brows
cheeks: highlight, colour (blush/bronzer)
lips: liner, lipstick, gloss (or just gloss)

finish: blot powder, fix+

My order is…
Eyes first: primer, highlight, crease, lid (sometimes lid, crease), eyebrows, liner
Face: Prep + Prime, foundations, contour, highlight, blush
Back to Eyes: Prep + Prime lash, mascara
Lips: liner, lipstick, gloss

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

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.

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)

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.

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


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