How you guys doing??Hope you had an awesome weekend unlike me :(.I was busy unpacking my stuff and setting up my house which was without maid for a week now :(Anyway now things have settled down so let me share with you something which I did today.I made eyeshadow primer for myself with Loreal true match super blendable foundation.. This foundation gave me bad whitish cast so it was time to put it to some good use.
What is Eye shadow Primer ?
Eyeshadow primer act as a barrier between our skin and eyeshadow.It helps prevent creasing and makes eyeshadow look more vibrant and makes it lasts longer.Eyeshadow primer are generally expensive and making them at home is an easy task.One needs just two ingredients and cost next to nothing.Yes it won’t be as effective as Urban Decay eyeshadow primer or MAC primer but the result won’t be bad either.
SoÂ here we go with the tutorialÂ of How To Make Eye Shadow Primer
A sample jar (I used my body shop lip balm jar)
Liquid foundation or concealer(If you are fond of using lot of shimmer then you can add shimmer to get a shimmery base.Using foundation even’s out the skin tone and
White Body Butter – I am using Fab India Avocado Body Butter. Because of the thick consistency of Body Butter it provides a nice base which I like applying as an eyeshadow base.
Tooth pick or back of the make up brush to mix both ingredients
To start with it Add little less than 1/4th of liquid foundation in the jar.I don’t use any particular measurement but the idea ratio is 1:4
Now Add body butter on the remaining jar to get the right colour.
Mix both the ingredient finely so that they give a even tone.Try to bring it down to the same colour of your skin.You can add or reduce the foundation accordingly.
- I like using thick eyeshadow primer if you like the thin consistency than add more of the body butter and we are done 🙂
