There’s no hard and fast rule to applying makeup. However, if you’re an amateur when it comes to makeup, the right order of application can help you achieve the makeover you’re looking for. Here’s the order you need to follow...
Primer
 

Primer

Once you’ve moisturised your face, the ideal thing to apply next is a primer—the product that sucks in the oil from the face as well as helps your makeup stay in place.

Foundation
 

Foundation

The next step to base makeup is the foundation. If you’re going all out, go for one with maximum coverage that’ll hide your imperfections; a mousse should give you coverage as well as feel light on the skin.

Concealer
 

Concealer

Don’t you just hate the sighting of dark circles and blemishes on your face? If you’ve been looking for a solution to those, it lies in finding the right concealer for your skin tone. Just dab it on the affected areas and blend till it disappears into your skin.

Compact
 

Compact

Now that your base makeup is done, you need to seal it with the right compact—a product that sets your makeup beautifully while ensuring that your face doesn’t look greasy or shiny at any point.

Brow pencil
 

Brow pencil

Now that your base is ready, move to the brows. Why? Because the power brow hasn’t been trending for no reason at all, right? Use gentle strokes to fill them in using a brow pencil and you’ve got yourself brows on fleek.

Eyeliner
 

Eyeliner

It’s time to play up your eyes. Do it by way of an eyeliner—gel or liquid based, whichever works best for you. Follow this up by a mascara if you want to take your eye makeup to the next level.

Lipstick
 

Lipstick

Call us obsessed but when it comes to makeup, we’re biased towards lipstick. A red lipstick for the night or a peachy pink during the day, pick one according to your outing and you’re almost done with your look.

Blush
 

Blush

The final step to makeup is achieving those gorgeous rosy cheeks by way of a blush. Choose a shade that’ll accentuate your skin tone and apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks.
