Homemade Eye Primer

20120823-224057.jpg

I love eye primer! I think this is what eyeshadow was missing all along!
You know when i picked out an eyeshadow I would put it on and the color was not the same. It was disappointing to see a lighter color and would usually come off easily or smear all over. Then I discovered eye primer and voila! The shadow color was bold and exactly what the color should be.

I usually use a primer by urban decay and this works just as good.
I found this recipe at mascara.com

Here’s what you need:
1 tsp Cornstarch
1/2 tsp Natural Chapstick
1 1/2 tsp Foundation

Here’s what you do:
I left my Chapstick sit near the window for a couple of minutes. yes, my house gets that hot in certain rooms that it will melt things. (that’s why my homemade deodorant stays in my fridge).
Mix the Chapstick, cornstarch, and foundation together and put in a small container.

There you have it! You have your very own eye primer.

DIY Mineral Veil/Translucent Powder

Since using my own homemade make up remover, cleanser, scrub and toner my skin has never looked and felt better! So I don’t need to use a lot of powder. So this was perfect for me.

Here’s what you need:
1 tbs cornstarch
Make up

Here’s what you do:
Mix your old make up with your cornstarch and your done. You’ve just mastered the art of making translucent powder. Now if you have more of your make up you should get a heavier coverage.

The cornstarch is so light and will help absorb oil. Using your old make up will add a hint of color. When I say old I don’t necessarily mean like 5 years old (you know you probably still have some you can’t get rid of) I just mean previous make up. There’s usually a tad left that you try to save till you he the new one.
I usually use a primer so that also helps to keep the powder on longer.
Good Luck!
