I'll normally apply most of my makeup AFTER I put my clothes on so that my makeup doesn't rub off all over what I'm wearing.

I typically apply my make up after I get dressed. My make up and perfume are the last to go on before walking out of the door. I don't usually wear much though, on a normal day it's just powder foundation, mascara, and my trusty chapstick. On special occasions, nights out, or when I just feel like dressing up, i'll add in eye shadow (matching whatever i'm wearing that day) and eye liner, maybe even a little blush. But it always goes on last! I made the mistake of doing my make up PERFECTLY one day, then tossing on a shirt and smearing both my freshly done eyeliner and mascara, which in turn messed up my foundation. I ended up having to wipe off and start again, due to my slight OCD on perfection lol.

Makeup After

I like to wash up, that is brush my teeth and wash my face before I dress. This way water doesn't get splattered onto my clothes. Then I get dressed and do my makeup shortly after, usually before I leave, but after I eat breakfast. So basically, it's wash, dress, eat, and then makeup.

I'll prep my face i.e. eye cream, tinted moisturizers, spf ETC first. Then I get dressed and then I put on the rest of my makeup. I can't decide what lip color I'm going to use until I've figured out my outift. :)

USUALLY I put on makeup after I get dressed.

I've gotten makeup on my outfit too many times doing it in reverse!

I brush my teeth, then get dressed, then do my hair, and lastly do my makeup.

I do it before, since I can be kind of klutzy and get product on my clothes!  Foot in mouth I actually once knocked over a bottle of liquid foundation, LOL.  It spilled onto the dresser, but nothing splashed on me!  Even if had, it would only have gotten on my pj's.  Would be a pain to get it out, but not as much as if it got onto a "good" piece of clothing.  Esp. if I'm pressed for time and don't know what to weat instead!

After that happened, it "confirmed" my decision to always put on makeup or handle any skincare products (like sunscreen) BEFORE I get dressed!

Also, I put on sunscreen as well, so doing other skin stuff afterwards allows the sunscreen to set so it won't rub off on my clothes.  I get better coverage applying it before anyway.  I prefer to get dressed once everything has had a change to "set", then I know I'm ready to be seen in public.

With the case of some lipsticks, I might put THAT on last so it doesn't rub off onto my top if it's a pullover top.
