Using a face primer is basically the exact same thing as using a primer before painting your walls. By applying a primer before you apply foundation or concealer, you’re smoothing out the skin, and starting with a clean base. Face primers can be quite pricey though, and if you wear makeup everyday, it’s easy to blow through a primer extremely quick! Today we’ll show you a DIY face primer recipe that’s very easy to make, cheap, and will work just as well as store bought primers!
DIY Face Primer Recipe
We’re going to show you two different DIY face primer recipes, and you can choose which one works best for you!
Face Primer Recipe #1
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp aloe vera gel
- 2 drops almond oil
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together until they form a smooth gel. Apply to cleansed face and neck, and wait a minute until primer dries before applying foundation or concealer.
Face Primer Recipe #2
- 1/2 tsp kaolin clay
- 1/2 tsp arrowroot powder
- 2 tsp aloe vera gel
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together until well combined. Apply to cleansed face and neck, and wait to dry.
