A study conducted in 2018 found that over 63% of women apply makeup daily. However, many of those women who buy makeup regularly don’t know the right order to apply different products.
Even if you have the best makeup on the market, it won’t mean much if you don’t know how to use it. The following guide will cover applying makeup in the correct order to get the best results.
Read on to learn the basics of makeup application to create stunning looks to boost your confidence!
Start With Primer and Color Corrector
Keep in mind that primers and color correctors are optional purchases when you buy makeup. They help to balance your complexion and keep products in place longer.
If you decide to use primers, color correctors, or both, always apply them before any other products. You’ll want to apply them right after you finish your skincare routine.
Next, you’ll add foundation as a base for your other makeup products. Try to find a formula that enhances the type and tone of your skin. Doing so will help your other makeup products to set correctly.
Note that you can skip adding any foundation if you already have even skin. Instead, simply apply a bit of concealer on any troubled areas of your skin.

You always need to apply concealer once you’ve put on foundation so that you don’t use too much product. If you use more product than necessary, your skin might end up looking cakey.
Dab a little concealer on areas that require more coverage such as under your eyes and on blemishes. Then, use a blending brush to soften the edges of the concealer you dabbed on.
Apply Blush, Bronzer, and Highlighter
Blush, bronzers, and highlighters help give your complexion a nice final touch. Blush adds a pop of color to your cheeks, highlighters add a shimmering shine, and bronzers help with contouring.
Remember to always layer any creams underneath powders if you decide to use both products.
Apply Mascara, Eyeshadow, and Eyeliner
Eyelashes coated in mascara can usually make it difficult to apply eyeliners and eyeshadows. Make sure to only apply your mascara once you’re finished applying your eyeliner and eyeshadow.
Eyebrows and Lips
Next, focus on your eyebrows and try to make them complement the rest of your applied makeup. Start shaping and filling your arches with an eyebrow pencil to match the rest of your look.
Save lip colors for the end of your makeup routine because it’s the simplest product to reapply throughout the day.
Setting Powder or Spray
You don’t have to use sitting powders or sprays, but they both help your makeup last longer and look great all day. Apply them directly before you leave the house as the final step in your makeup routine!
