Day 21: DIY Eyeshadow Primer
You guys, I’m pretty stoked about this one. A few years ago my sister gave me an Urban Decay primer and I fell in love with it. But not so much with the price tag. When my tube started getting low I started scoping out the price of replacing it and just couldn’t convince myself to lay down $20+ for a shadow primer. So when I saw this post about making my own knock-off version I knew I had to give it a try.
This would have been uber-affordable if I ever used foundation, but since I don’t I had to purchase some, which drove my cost up a little. I decided to give it a try with the cheapest stuff I could find first and get some more expensive stuff if that didn’t work out.
- 1/2 tsp chapstick (I couldn’t find the all-natural stuff that the original post recommended, but the original worked fine for me)
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 2 tsp liquid foundation
- small container or jar
Run the chapstick under hot water for a minute to soften it up, then mix everything together until it’s smooth.
I’ve used this several times now and have been very pleased with the results. To be totally honest, it seems to work just as well as the Urban Decay, and for a much-easier-to-handle price tag. Yay for knockoffs!
What DIY beauty products have you tried? Would you try this or just stick with the name brand stuff?
