The Correct Order to Apply Your Makeup
-According to a Professional Makeup Artist
The most common question I get as a makeup artist is “Why do you always start makeup with the eyes?” Now you may not get your makeup done professionally, but you may wonder about this same question when doing your own makeup. From a professional point of view, the eyes are where the makeup process should begin for a few reasons.
Prepping the eyes with a primer and applying the shadows can result in fallout around the corners of the eyes as well as under the eyes. If the face makeup is already in place, you would have to remove the parts where the shadows fell, thus having to redo what you had already done once. After doing the eyeshadow, the next step is to apply the face makeup; foundation, concealer, contour, etc.
