About 90% of the beauty bloggers and YouTubers start with doing their face make up: foundation, concealer, blush, etc. In some way it makes sense. You get the canvas ready, before you can start painting on it. But I'm here to tell you that you should switch the order & why!
|Eyeshadow fallout gone wrong..|
How many time have you done your whole makeup look, with extra care, and then.. Fallout. The eyeshadow is everywhere. No problem, you can swipe it away with a fan-brush or a big powder brush. But if you wait a little too long, the eyeshadow sets and ruins your makeup. It may not be obvious, but your face makeup will not look as flawless as before!

Without eyeshadow this scene occurs as well. Imagine: you just applied your foundation and concealer and you start doing your mascara. Oops, bottom lashes ruin everything because you accidentally look down. Oops, your cheek is black, because your hand (with mascara brush) slipped. Oops, you dropped your face in a pile of eyeliners and accidentally moved your head up and down and now your entire face is ruined. It happens.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Start with doing your eye makeup, whether it is or isn't eyeshadow. Once you're done, start with your foundation, apply concealer and your blush/contour/highlighter. And once you're done, your lips can be provided with a little lip paint!
You gotta love my photoshop skills by the way. I bet you didn't notice that the last two pictures were photoshopped. Well, they are. It's not real fallout. Fooled you!
In what order do you apply your makeup?
