Musings of a Muse: The Make-Up Routine
We all have certain ways and quirks of applying our makeup. What are some of yours? Do you apply concealer first and follow with foundation? Blusher before shadow? Shadow before blusher? Do you curl your lashes after mascara or before?
Tell me how your makeup regime takes place!
Skip ahead to read how I do mine.
Although many of my friends swear to the gods that it’s a good idea to always apply full eye makeup first, the Muse doesn’t, nor does she understand how people accomplish this. Since I’m so hands on with my foundation/concealer the idea of applying a full shadow look before either strikes me as terribly out of order.
After SPF, moisturizer, eye cream, etc…this is how my makeup routine normally goes:
- Conceal under my eyes
- Conceal my lids (‘ello Benefit Lemon Aid!)
- Prime my lids
- Apply my face primer
- Apply liquid or cream foundation
- Light dusting of powder sometimes but not always (depends how my skin is behaving)
- Apply shadow
- Curl lashes
- Apply mascara
- Apply blush
- Oops almost forget lipstick and gloss!
