Gadzooks, We’re Putting Our Makeup On Backwards!
So, picture it, I’m putting on my makeup last night (fascinating right?)—mostly doing the same, exact thing I do every freaking time. Clearly, I need to change up my “look”—but that’s a whole different post. Anyway, the application order goes something like this: Clarins Flash Beauty Balm, concealer, bronzer/powder, eyeliner (I’m way into navy liner these days), mascara, blush and lipgloss. No deviation whatsoever. Apparently, I’m a bit in the wrong—you are supposed to do your eyes before everything else, even your foundation/concealer, or so says makeup artist Kate Lee (she’s glammed up every Hollywood starlet from Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley to Diane Kruger and Sienna Miller): “I like to do the smoky eye before starting any other makeup. That way, if you accidentally get a little bit of eyeshadow on your face, you don’t end up ruining your foundation or powder.” Interesting. What about you gals, do you have a make-up application formula? It looks like mine is sort of all wrong. [Teen Vogue]
