I always moisturize prior to foundation application. If my skin is being naughty, Ill add in a primer in between my moisturizer and foundation. This goes for liquid and powder foundations. Hope this helped.

Moisturizer and then the makeup.

If I'm going out to an even and if I'm using liquid, I try to use a primer, but it depends on my mood.

But I always moisturize before.

I use a moisturizer with sunscreen and let it sink in while I'm getting dressed.

Then I use primer...and then, foundation!

Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer w/SPF 30 right out of the shower. Let it sink it. Then Smashbox primer. My foundation goes on evenly and smoothly.

I put on my moisturizer before I get dressed so it can sink in. Then I put on primer, wait a couple minutes, and then foundation :smile:

I put on moisturiser after I get out of the shower, then get dressed, then I will sometimes prep with YSL Top Secrets Flash Radiance otherwise I simply mix my foundation in with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and apply that mixture. It works well for me.
