I have finally got around to making this ridiculously long list of my favorite products that I use pretty much every day! I gave as much detail as I thought fit for each product and included various pros and cons. I will not provide links since a quick Google search will give you all the information you need on where you can purchase these items. All items are split into categories to make this post more organized. I do not have any affiliate codes or links. I created this list as a way to share my most loved cosmetics and to give honest reviews of drugstore and high-end products. Your feedback is welcome and much appreciated. Without further acknowledgments, let’s get started:

I was wondering if you could give me the order makeup its supposed to go in so I know if I'm missing something from my routine? ( like moisturizer, then primer) etc. Also what's your favorite moisturizer?

Hi babe! Xo. 

My favorite moisturizer for the day time is either Glossier Priming Moisturizer or Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. For the night time I love Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream or Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Depending on skin type and makeup look, the makeup application order varies. But in general it looks a little something like

  1. Skin/Base Prep
  2. Base
  3. Eyes
  4. Lips

Base Prep

  1. Toner, to help will oil/sebum production, balance the PH levels, extra hydrating, light exfoliation, etc. 
  2. Serum/Oil, if skin needs extra hydration, lifting, firming, acne fighting products under makeup. 
  3. Eye Cream, if your concealer goes on drying under the eyes or if you’re anal about your anti aging skin care. 
  4. Moisturizer, always necessary! Creams best for dry skin, gels best for oily skin under makeup.
  5. Primer. 

Base

  1. Foundation.
  2. Concealer.
  3. Cream/liquid highlights/blushes/bronzers/contour. 
  4. Translucent Powder.
  5. Setting Powder.
  6. Powder blushes highlights/bronzers/powders.
  7. Translucent/finishing powder again (optional). Finishing powders are usually perfecting powders with a slight sheen or blurring finish. 
  8. Setting Spray, for longevity or moisture. 

Eyes

  1. Eyeshadow Primer.
  2. Eyeshadow Base to make the eye lid one even color (optional).
  3. Cream Eyeshadow.
  4. Powder Eyeshadow.
  5. Eyeliner.
  6. Mascara.
  7. False Lashes.

Lips

  1. Lip Balm.
  2. Lip Liner, to create a long lasting base for lipstick.
  3. Lipstick.
  4. Lip Liner again, to create a sharp and precise lip line or to add dimension to the lips for a fuller lip look.
  5. Lip Gloss, to add shine or a sheen or to alter the lip color a bit making it lighter or darker in color. 

Of course you DONT need to do all of these steps! Pick and choose which steps fit your life style, skin type and look.
