In What Order Do You Put On Your Makeup?

We all have our own routine. Most of us figured out makeup for ourselves. We didn’t have someone to say, “hey, do this first. Then do this second.”

Because of this, we all have a different order for putting on our makeup. I’d like to hear what your order is.

What order do you put on your makeup?

Let’s say for the sake of argument that I plan to go for a full face of makeup. This is rare, but whatever. This is my order:

  1. Foundation
  2. Powder
  3. Eye shadow
  4. Eyeliner
  5. Mascara
  6. Eyebrows (lining/filling in)
  7. Blush
  8. Lips

Granted, most days I take out a few of those steps. Mainly the first two.

What’s your order?



  1. This is my order:

    1. eyeshadow
    2. liner
    3. mascara
    4. concealer
    5. foundation
    6 powder
    7. blush
    8. highlighter
    9. lipgloss

    I like to do my eyes first, so if there is any fallout, I can remove it without ruining my face makeup.

  2. Yeah, you’d think I would have figured that out by now. Instead, I have to redo parts of my foundation because I removed the fallout. Perhaps I should relearn a new order, eh?

  3. 1. Moisturizer
    2. Foundation
    3. Concealer
    4. Powder
    5. Powder blush
    6. Eyeliner
    7. Eyeshadow (optional)
    8. Mascara
    9. Lip gloss

  4. Optional eye shadow, Colleen? Wow! You do makeup way differently than me!

  5. 1 mascara
    2 eye shadow
    3 liner
    4 base
    5 concealer
    6 foundation
    7 powder
    8 blush

    I use mascara first coz for sone reason I could never put it on without making a mess on my eye lids
    Then I can clean up before I put the base

    I heard runway artists do his technique too .

  6. Rice: Yeah, I could see how that would be especially helpful on the runway. They have to work so quickly that they really can’t worry about putting on mascara carefully. Good point!

  7. 1. moisturize
    2. foundation
    3. fill in my eyebrows
    4. eyeshadow
    5. eyeliner
    6. mascara

    i use some lipcolor if i feel like it… >> i should probably more often. :’D

  8. wow thats a lot of good ways
