DIY Eyeshadow Primer

Hey guys,

Today we'll be sharing a cheap and easy way to make your own eyeshadow primer at home.:)

So what exactly is an eyeshadow primer for?

1. To prevent your eyeshadow from creasing.
2. To make your eyeshadow and eyeliner last longer.
3. To make the color of your eyeshadow look more vibrant.

Despite its wonderful efficiency, the eyeshadow primer is often excluded from most girl's makeup boxes, simply because they're often overpriced for such small bottles of product. That's why we decided to bring you this tutorial, hope you girls will find it helpful!

You will need:

A mosturizer of your choice, a liquid foundation of your choice and an empty container.

Here, I'm using Dewin's Aqua Intensive Gel Cream and Chanel's Pro Lumiere foundation (a sample. Haha. This primer is also a great way to use up all the sample foundations/moisturizers you have lying around).

First, pour 1 1/2 teaspoons of the liquid foundation into your container.

Secondly, add the same amount (1 1/2 teaspoons) of your moisturizer into the container.

Note: 1 1/2 teaspooons is just an example of an amount. It depends on how much primer you want to make, as long as both are in equal parts.:)

Finally, mix it all up.

And there you have it! Your very own eyeshadow primer!

And this is the end product!

I like primers with a lighter, more watery texture because I have oily lids but if you need something thicker feel free to use ingredients with thicker consistencies. The texture of your primer simply follows the texture of your foundation and moisturizer.:)

Now to show you the effectiveness of your homemade primer.:)

The eyeshadow used below is Elianto's Baked in Turqoise Blue. Only RM 5 and the colors don't show up very well without a primer.:(

Left: without primer, Right: with primer

Isn't the difference amazing??

Hope you find this tutorial useful.:) Do check back for more DIY and makeup tutorials!
