What Comes First?

Ok ladies and gents,


What do you put on first? Concealer or foundation?? LMKKKK

Re: What Comes First?

For me it depends what I'm using the concealer for -- if it's to cover any type of blemish, or redness, I will apply concealer first. Whereas if I'm using the concealer to brighten I will apply my foundation first.


Truth be told there is really no right or wrong way. Makeup is all about having fun so there are no rules! 🙂

RE: What Comes First?

Foundation then concealer. Foundation for a flawless base then concealer for highlighting.

Re: What Comes First?

I do not wear concealer everyday. However, on days that I contour I will use concealer over foundation to brighten specific areas.

Re: What Comes First?

For pimples I conceal first, but for my under eyes I'll add concealer second 

Re: What Comes First?

If I'm gunna wear it, I do concealer first. I only need to conceal my under eyes if I want to brighten circles so I don't need much. I actually won't wear it on minimal make up days, just some tinted moisturizer to even out my skin tone.

Ohhhhhh - This is a tough question!  LOL!     @rachwarren


I actually apply my concealer first, then do my foundation and then add a little more concealer (before setting with powder) if my under eye circles are especially noticeable.


One of these days, I may just forgo concealer altogether in favor of this....:
