DIY beauty series! #1 make your own eye primer!

Eye Primer

hey everyone! so I'm going to do a series on my blog which will last a week or two on DIY beauty and will be teaching you all how to make your own beauty product at home with common household (cheap!) items! i just recently began getting obsessed with making my own products but found it difficult finding "recipes"for them so i thought i would put them all in one place for you! i hope you enjoy the series as much as i have enjoyed researching and writing about it! and if you want to see the rest of the series please follow! now to begin.....

What you will need......

your favourite...
*liquid/cream foundation
*liquid/cream concealer
*body butter
*an empty tub/container to put your primer in.
*something to stir the mixture.

1. there is no exact measurements for this so its mainly just your own judgement.
     add an equal amount of your concealer,foundation and body butter to your container.

-make sure you have the same amount of each product

2.mix the three products together until you get a liquidy/pasty consistency

-add extra of each product if necessary to fill your container to where you want.

And that is it!! it is super easy and super effective i did some swatches for you showing first an eyeshadow with no primer, then the same eye shadow with a drugstore primer then finally the same eyeshadow with our homemade primer......
no primer   -    drugstore   -      homemade

as you can see our primer does the same job if not better than the drugstore primer the only thing i would say is the drugstore primer had more ware and lasted a bit longer than ours but for the price and the amount than we can make i would definitely say ours is perfect for everyday use!

hope you enjoyed!if you did leave a comment and follow also if you try it leave a comment telling me you like the results!!
