Which cosmetics need to be applied first?
Texture is the best indication of which order to follow. Apply your lightest, most liquid products before they are formulated for deepest penetration. Then apply thicker or creamier products afterwards.
If you reverse this order, the denser formulas will prevent lighter products from seeping into your skin, making them less effective. So make sure to always go from the lightest to the heaviest products to get the most out of your routine.
First, moisturizer or eye cream?
IIn fact, you should apply an eye contour cream as a second step after your cleanser, both in the morning and at night, so that the targeted ingredients can work. Regular use of a dark eye product will help rejuvenate the eye area, giving you a sleep-like beauty for the next 9 hours.

A complete morning routine step by step
1. Clean to remove any impurities
Start your morning routine by removing excess sebum from your skin that has been secreted throughout the night, as well as any leftover products you applied the night before. Choose a gentle cleanser like micellar water that cleanses, brightens, and hydrates in one step. You are now ready and prepared for the next steps in your process.
Wait a minute, shouldn’t we use a lighter serum first? Although eyeshadow creams are thicker than serums, these moisturizers should go first. This helps eye contour-specific ingredients penetrate more effectively and protects the delicate eye area from powerful serum ingredients.
The skin around the eyes is thinner than the skin on the face, so of course it needs special care. Applying an eye contour cream in the morning can help reduce the ‘puffiness’ of the under-eye area often seen after a night of rest and keep the area hydrated during the day.
3. Anti-Oxidant Serum
Your skin is in contact with free radicals During the day, can damage skin cells, and contribute to the appearance of skin aging. Applying an antioxidant serum can help restore existing formation and protect your skin.

And remember, always reapply sunscreen during the day as directed on the label for optimal benefits.
The final step to your routine is makeup – if you wear makeup, that is. If you have followed all the previous steps up to the letter T, you will notice a more even application on the skin. Bonus point: you won’t have to touch it much during the day.
