You Wanna Know Concealer or Foundation First?

133 Flares 133 Flares ×

Who knew makeup could be so confusing? I recently shared my routine to cover up my dark under eye circles and it quickly became a favorite. It also sparked a lot of questions with the most popular question being, “Do I apply concealer or foundation first?” The answer to this was found in a recent makeup class, “Fall Harvest.” I recorded my concealer and foundation routine.

Confused? Wondering If You Apply Concealer or Foundation First?

So I get it you can never exactly figure out the order of operation. Is it concealer before or after foundation? Today we are going to finally put the debate of concealer or foundation to bed and help you feel more confident in your makeup application.

Concealer Before or After Foundation

My concealer and foundation routine answer the age old question: concealer or foundation first?

  1. Primer – Using Motives Complexion Perfection Primer
  2. Color Correct- only if necessary, if you use concealer and your dark under eye circles or hyperpigmentation still show through then you need to do this step). NEW- Motives Color Correction Quads
  3. Foundation – Motives for La La Liquid Foundation for women of color or Motives Liquid to Powder Mineral Foundation
  4. Concealer – Motives for La La Long Wear Concealer
  5. Set with Powder – either a transclucent powder or my preference is Motives for LaLa Dual Mineral Foundation for a flawless and polished look

Motives for La La Liquid Foundation

This light weight formula is very moisturizing which makes it a perfect foundation for fall, when the air is a little more crisp and dry.

Aside from feeling like you don’t have on much makeup, Motives for La La Liquid Foundation gives medium to full coverage. You can build up your coverage from medium to full by adding another thin coat of foundation.
