What do you do? Concealer or foundation first?

I've been wondering about this for a while:

What do you ladies do? Do you put on your concealer then foundation, or foundation and concealer?

I heard you're supposed to do foundation, concealer, powder, but for some reason I don't see how that would work without looking like a freak of nature. Maybe if you found a concealer that EXACTLY matches your make up.

Anyway, before I go and try this "new" way of make up application, what do you ladies do?

I am a cosmetician and I always tell customers to go in this order... Foundation, concealer than powder...... I feel if you apply concealer first, while you are applying the foundation, you are just spreading the concealer around with the foundation..... Doing it after foundation, it goes where you need or want it only.... Than applying powder finishes off the look......Your concealer should be as close to your coloring as possible..... And of course match your foundation to your jawline....

Hi i got taught totally different to you lol.I suppose its where you get trained.Im a beauty therapist and we got taught to apply concealer first.It depends really on what concealer your using.If you use a green concealer to hide say a red spot then i would suggest you apply it first also for if your trying to hide dark circles.

Why they dont teach us all the same ways ill never know.

Yeah, green and yellow should go underneath foundation, but concealer to cover up a zit or something should be dotted on top of the foundation and zit, and lightly tapped in. So basically, for dark circles and redness, those concealers go on first...for extra coverage on a zit or something, skin colored concealer goes on last.
