Entering the realm of beauty can be pretty intimidating with so many products on the market and not knowing what or how to use half of them can be discouraging. This segment brings a brief introduction to some beauty essentials, how to apply them and some popular products and cult classics with great reviews.
Should you apply your face makeup before your eye makeup?
To many people it makes perfect sense to apply your face makeup, then your eye makeup and then your lipstick but you’re actually making more work for yourself by doing this and probably using more product than you need.
By applying your eye makeup BEFORE your face makeup you will save yourself a lot of time and hassle. Eyeshadow will often “fall” onto the cheeks whilst being applied leaving a whole array of colours over your face (and makeup) By applying your eye makeup first you can easily remove the eyeshadow fallout from your cheeks with a face wipe - otherwise you will have to re-apply and touch up your face makeup all over again. (Not to mention if you make a mistake with your eyeliner or your mascara it will be MUCH easier to fix up)
By applying your eye makeup first you will also be able to assess how much foundation, concealer, contour, blush and highlighter you really need. Often when the eyes are defined you will find you need less facial makeup.
The end verdict? Do your skincare and whilst allowing your moisturiser to absorb apply your eye makeup, this will make for a quick clean up process.
Instead of sucking in your cheeks and making a fish face to see the hollows of your cheeks when contouring (which can result in your contour being applied too close to your nose and looking muddy) try making a soft pout.
