June 3, 2014: Do you apply face makeup after you do eye makeup, or before?

Recommended Posts

Before, always! I know some people do it the other way around because of fallout from eye shadows but if you tap off the excess before you apply it that shouldn't be a problem.

 

I think face makeup first gives you a chance to create a long lasting base for your eye shadow. I have never once had eye makeup smudge or rub off (unless I was crying) and I credit it to the fact that I always do my face first.

 

@ which do you prefer?

I apply my face make up before I do my eyes. I've found out that if you get eye shadow under your eyes to lightly take a cotton ball over it and the fibers on the cotton ball pick up all the excess shadow that may have fallen when you put it on.

I know a lot of people say do your eyes first, but I have been doing my face makeup first for so long, I just don't think I could make the switch! LOL Something that Robert Jones does is put eye cream under the eye, do the eyes, and then wipe off the eye cream, along with the fall out... I just don't have that problem i guess... I'm just pretty careful when I do my makeup lol

I do my face first. If I don't, I end up wiping out most of the liner on my lower lid with my concealer. I'm still learning how to apply everything and I mess up less this way.

Eyes first. I can rush everything else if I run out of time, but not my eyes.

My main focus is always my complexion. I do face first, followed by some neutral eyeshadow if I'm feeling like it, or always a liquid cat eye. That's it. I can't do liquid liner before foundation. I just like doing it last.

Fff. I'm a mixup of both. This is the order I go in:

 

1. Eyebrows
2. Powder foundation
3. Eyeshadow
4. Blush
5. Setting powder
6. Lips.

I do my eyes first, I think because my skin doesn't need a ton of coverage or work to it.  I always end up with a tiny bit of excess eyeshadow under my eyes so I have to clean that up before I can put on foundation. I go

 

-Eye primer

-Face primer

-Eye shadow

-Eyeliner

-Foundation

-Blush and powder

-Brows

-Setting spray

-Mascara

 

Totally out of "order" haha

It really depends for me - if I'm doing a bright colored eyeshadow-heavy look, then I absolutely do my eyes first for fallout and all those fun things.  If I'm just doing my everyday look, though, then I'm doing my eyes after my face :)

I do my face before! Mainly because thats the way I watched my Mom do it and I just followed tradition! However, certain eyeshadow particularly ones with glitter seem to have a lot of fall out! So I use a business card to catch it! Just hold it under your eye!

Always before! that was you don't have to worry about messing up your eyes/brows when applying foundation. Some people prefer it the other way round, so that they dont smudge foundation but, its a lot more complicated! :)

I think Eye makeup should be the Last thing you do

Just saying; no Mua or expert.

Hey

as a MUA I always do eye make up first then I tackle the face on my clients. Its the worst thing ever when you have done your face perfectly and then eyeshadow drops on your face...

there are eyeshadow shields nowadays but I just find it easier to get the eyes out the way.

 

hope that help xx

I usually apply my face makeup before, however when I do touch ups I will just put on new powder or new concealer without redoing my eye makeup. And sometimes, if I was trying out a new foundation and hate it, I will redo my face makeup but not my eyes.

Always do your face first. Think of it as drawing a picture. You want to fill the background first, then pay attention to the details within the frame.

I didn't even know there was an option... who knew?!?

 

I always start with just a drop of unscented moisturizer (it really helps makeup go on so much smoother with my skin), then my foundation (whether it's creme, liquid or powder... if I do any contouring it happens here, as well), and then I do my eyes.  Before doing my eyes, however, I put a couple of layers of loose powder directly below them in the tear trough.  I usually use Ben Nye highlighter (pink powder) for this.  It catches any eyeshadow that falls down from the eyes, and when you're through with your eye you just dust it off with a fan brush.  Not only does it keep the undereye area clean, but it also brightens the area under the eyes.  It makes a big difference letting it sit there and "bake" while you do your eye makeup.  After that it's just blush and lipstick.  Often I will apply loose powder over my entire face once I'm through to help set everything one last time, and then I'll apply mascara if I even bother to wear it.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
