Following a specific order for your makeup or daily skincare makes all the difference, depending of course on your skin types and what it needs.

But when it comes to makeup, for instance, there is an exact order to apply your makeup for a flawless look and to avoid product build-up, caky looks, and overall effectiveness of the products you use.

And what’s better than knowing the perfect order of operations for a beautiful face? Using vegan and cruelty-free products so all the fuzzy bunnies and kitties can admire your beauty with you! If you’re looking to make an impact on your face and the world, always choose high-end brands with rigorous standards and pigments. Your face will thank you with a breakout-free glowing complexion, and so will the bunnies.


Moisturizing your skin is an essential step to hydrate and treat your skin before starting to apply heavy and harsh makeup on your skin, it is also vital to create a protective layer for your pores and skin. If you have extra time, prep your skin with moisturizing eye patches and a moisture-rich mask.

Primer is essential because it is considered a protective layer to your skin when using makeup. It also helps smooth down your pores to create a flawless finish and help all the products set and last longer.

Foundation is arguably the most critical step here. Be sure to use a foundation that matches your tone and skin type, and do not forget to blend blend blend! Especially down your neck for an even look. You don’t want to look like you’re wearing a mask. Start from the center of the face when you apply the product and blend outwards.

Concealer helps hide any imperfections in your skin, including any discoloration or hyperpigmentation. It’s an excellent way to hide any blemishes and helps your skin look brighter and healthier. If you already have perfect skin, you can skip it! Don’t feel like you need to put everything on because it exists.

Bronzer is important because it helps shape and redefine your face, giving you a lovely sun-kissed tone and a natural definition of your cheekbones, nose, and neck.

Blush helps bring out the rosy undertone of your skin and gives you warmth to your face that was covered with the foundation.

Using a translucent powder after blush seals everything together. Make sure to add a little extra under your eyes (you’ll brush it off later) to catch any eyeshadow fallout.

While you may see beauty gurus on Instagram and Youtube applying shadow before finishing the face, it’s easier for the everyday humans to finish up the face, add extra powder, and clean up small fallout by brushing fallout away.

If there’s anything that completes the look, it’s mascara. You can forget blush or bronzer, but never mascara!
