Tip 4:

“Use skincare and makeup products in the right order.”

This is important because it allows each product to work effectively
and maximize their benefits for your skin.

The order of application is crucial because it ensures that each
product can penetrate the skin properly and perform its
intended function.


Here are a few reasons why following the
correct order is important:

  1. Cleansing:
    Starting with a clean face is essential as it removes
    dirt, oil, and impurities, preparing the skin for the
    subsequent products.
  2. Toning:
    Toning helps balance the skin’s pH levels, tighten pores,
    and remove any remaining traces of cleanser. It also
    preps the skin for better absorption of subsequent
  3. Serums/Treatments:
    These products are typically formulated with active
    ingredients that target specific skin concerns such
    as hydration, brightening, or anti-aging. Applying
    them early in your routine allows them to penetrate
    deeply into the skin.
  4. Moisturizer:
    Moisturizers help hydrate and nourish the skin, creating
    a protective barrier. Applying them after serums helps
    seal in the active ingredients and prevents moisture loss.
  5. Sunscreen:
    Sunscreen is a crucial step in protecting your skin from
    harmful UV rays. It should be the last step in your
    skincare routine before applying makeup. Sunscreen
    acts as a shield, preventing damage and premature aging
    caused by sun exposure.


When it comes to makeup application,
the order is also important:

  1. Primer:
    Applying a primer creates a smooth canvas for makeup,
    helps it last longer, and minimizes the appearance of
    pores and fine lines.
  2. Foundation/Concealer:
    These products even out the skin tone and provide
    coverage. Applying them after the skincare routine
    ensures that they adhere well to the skin.
  3. Powder:
    Setting powder helps to mattify the skin, control shine,
    and increase the longevity of your makeup.
  4. Blush/Bronzer/Highlighter:
    These products add color, dimension, and glow
    to the face. Applying them after foundation and
    powder ensures a seamless blend.
  5. Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Mascara:
    These eye makeup products should be applied
    before any face makeup to avoid any fallout or
  6. Lipstick/Lip Gloss:
    Applying lip products at the end prevents them
    from smearing or transferring onto other areas
    of the face.

By following the correct order, you allow each product to
work optimally and achieve the desired results.

It ensures that your skincare products penetrate effectively
and that your makeup looks flawless and lasts longer
throughout the day.
