Makeup Brush cleaning - 1 tbsp white vinegar, 1 tbsp dish detergent and 1 cup hot water. I just tried this and it worked amazingly well. I finally got my foundation and concealer brushes completely clean which I have never been able to do with the MAC brush cleaner I used previously. Highly recommend this.
Concealer -> Contouring -> Foundation -> Blush -> Finishing Powder -> Highlighting (my favorite is "Girl Meets Pearl" by Benefit) Everyone's got different ways but ^^ is what I do to get really natural looking makeup that is super easy to apply
