Beauty Order of Opperations

As we all know, makeup is more of an art than a science. There aren’t strict rules that have to be followed, and that can be part of the fun! But I have found that applying products in a particular order gives me a better result. And as more beauty innovations hit the market it seems like the order of operations is getting harder and harder to keep track of. Plus the accountant in me loves a numbered list, so here are the steps I take for my skincare and makeup:
