I have my college grad this Friday, and I'm getting my eyes prepped now, like trying to figure out what will work best with my outfit, and what not, so I don't have to do it all on Friday. But I was never really one to apply foundation and stuff.
I have e.l.f Complexion Perfection, which is the red, green, yellow and blue squares to help the complexion, I have Maybelline Pure Makeup liquid foundation, and I have Covergirl Trublend minerals powder foundation.
In what order do I apply these to ensure that it looks good, and that I will last through the 2+ hour ceremony and dinner and other festivities that follow. And also, any other tips to help the process, or to help it last would also be appreciated : )
Thanks so much !

First, concealer. Put the green concealer on any pimples you have, any red marks. Not too much, just lightly to cancel out the red. Put the yellow concealer under your eyes if you have dark circles. Again, lightly.
Foundation. If you have some, soak a makeup sponge all the way through then squeeze out the water so the sponge is only damp. Put a bit of foundation on the back of your hand, and tap the foundation on your face with the sponge. Tap it, so you don't ruin your concealer and make your skin flaky. Blend down your neck.
If you have a brush instead of a sponge, put a bit of foundation on your cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Blend it out with the brush. Put the most foundation where you need it, which for most people is in the middle of the face. You don't need to put much makeup by your jaw line, it will just create a line.
If you don't have a brush, just do the same thing with your fingers. Dab it on your face and blend it with your fingers.
Powder. Don't rub the powder in too much, it will ruin the foundation. Pat it on lightly where and when you need it. Wherever you get oily, needs the most powder. You may need to reapply it throughout the day. Don't put too much on, or it will make you look cakey.
You don't need to take everything with you, just take the powder. Go to the bathroom whenever you feel like you need a touch up.

Blend your liquid foundation with a fluffy powder brush in order to get an uber natural finish.
