    Sunscreen should be applied before makeup. Just wait for 10 mins and then apply foundation. You need not apply sunscreen if your day cream or foundation has SPF in it. But if in case of pigmentation ,it might be better to apply sunscreen in either case.

    Thank you both of you. One more questions i usually tend to wash off my face with normal soap when i'm back home. Is it good to wash face with soap to remove the makeup because whenever i wash it with soap i feel like fresh than using cleansers.

    use what works for you. some people have a problem with soaps but if it makes your skin feel good go with it.

    Yup soap and water does provide like fresh feeling but soap cleanses the skin superficially and doesn't remove the makeups and other deposits completely, soap might also be alkaline and might upset the normal PH of your skin. A cleanser with right PH helps to dissolve makeup and other deposits thus faciliating the removal of dirt and makeups.

    I also use sunscreen regularly even at home.
    Then I just apply loose powder on my face.
    Sunscreen is very important it will protect
    our skin.

    I just talked about this on my beauty blog because I get confused about this all the time before. Here is the post I did today on my blog:

    When I first started wearing makeup, I had no idea what to put on first and what to put on next. There are so many products like primers, liquid and powder foundations, that I always get confuse about the correct order I should apply my base makeup. This is what I want to talk about in this post. I believe putting on base makeup in the right order is very important because it helps you achieve that perfect look. So let's start:

    Step 1: Sun Protection
    A lot of people get confuse about when they should put on sunblock lotion. Some people use it after primer and foundation because they think sunblock need to be on the outer layer in order to protect your skin from UV rays. Some people use it before foundation but after primer. Both ways are actually wrong. Sunblock should be the first step in your face makeup routine because you need to apply sunblock when there is NO powder form products on your face. This way the sunblock can stick to your skin to protect it.

    Step 2: Primer
    This is optional because not everyone uses primer (but you should to help your makeup last longer). But if you do, this should be the second step in your routine. When applying primer, pat in the primer instead of rubbing it onto your face so it would not affect (destroy) the previous layer of sunblock that you just put on.

    Step 3: Pore Minimizing Primer
    This is also optional because a lot of people don't need it. But if you do, this should come after the regular primer for your face. When applying this, gently smooth it over the area where you need to cover your pores. You should NOT rub it back and forth (sometimes even I tend to do it because it feels that it can cover my pores better) because this actually just rubs the primer away. You should start with your nose area and gently move in an outward direction.

    Step 4: Foundation
    If you use liquid foundation, this should be your next step after primer. I'm not going to go into details about applying foundation because there are so many ways to do it. For me, I like using my hands because I feel my hands can warm up the foundation and make it easier to blend.

    Step 5: Concealer
    You can use concealer before or after your foundation. There is not an absolute correct way. However, I choose this as step 5 because I recommend using concealer after your foundation. This way, you can see which area is not covered well with your foundation and conceal them with a concealer. This prevents you from putting too much makeup on your face so it won't look too heavy. Sometimes, after I use a high coverage foundation, I don't need to apply concealer because my foundation had already covered everything.

    Step 6: Powder
    Power products should always be your last step because whatever you put on after applying powder will just make it hard to stick to your skin. I recommend using a setting powder as the last step to set your makeup so it will last longer. If you really need some good coverage, you could also substitute the regular setting power with a powder foundation.

    So that is the correct way of applying base makeup for your face. Of course, everyone is different so you could definitely change it a bit to fit you. But this should be the general guideline. I hope this helps some people who are not clear about what to put on first.

    hopefully this can answer some of the questions
