Homemade Makeup: Eyeshadow Primer

What is Eyeshadow Primer? Sign Emoticons

Eyeshadow primer is a base applied on eyelids before eyeshadow to improve coverage and staying power.  If you've never used an eyeshadow primer before, you absolutely must-start.  If you don't feel like buying one, you can make an eyeshadow primer at home comparable to the higher-end brands.  Ahem,  allow me to show you guys a quick How-To, it's so simple and easy, I promise!


  • Liquid Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Unscented Body Moisturiser
  • Cosmetic Spatula (for mixing)
  • Any cosmetic container (to put everything in)

  1. The ratio of the finished product is 1:1:1.  (Foundation : Concealer : Collagen Body Moisturiser). 
  2. Put everything in the container and mix all the ingredients until perfectly blended (*smooth & creamy consistency*).

The Result:                                                
                                                See swatch below

How To Use:

Use your fingertips to gently rub a tiny amount of finished product all over your eyelids before applying eye makeup.
