Have a wedding to go to this week and I went out and bought myself a good primer on advice to stop my makeup sliding off. I got a normal primer and an eye one too-apparently both different- and i also have a nanoblur thing. What order do I put everything on in? I don't do full face makeup oftenn and I need to know order of primers and nanoblur thing foundation,concealer and blusher . No idea whatorder all these things go on in!Help please!!

If you're new to all this then personally I'd skip the nanoblur. Apply you moisturiser, give it a few minutes to sink in, then apply your face and eye primer. Foundation goes on next.

If your blush is in powder form, apply a face powder over your foundation and then your blush, as it will help the blush go on more evenly. If it's a cream blush then just dab it on over your foundation and then apply powder to set.

When you say powder is that translucent powder?I have some of that but have never used it!
The nanoblur is supposed to hidemy wrinkles a bit in photos.If I do use it when should it go on?

Thankyou so much for the help btw!! Also do i just put eye primer on eyes or face primer and then the eye stuff-sorry if that sounds totally stupid!!

Eye primer on eyelids only and face primer everywhere else.

I've never used the nanoblur, sorry.

I would suggest the order is:

Moisturiser (if using)
Eyes/lips makeup

Nanoblur made my skin very sore and tingly.

I would have said:

Make sure nano blur is completely soaked in as otherwise it can go funny

Yes, a translucent powder would be fine. It will help set your foundation and also helps any other powder products you apply over the top (such as powder blush) to go on evenly and not patchy. Just apply a little where you need it.
