Honestly, before I used this primer I was not a huge believer in primers. I noticed that eye shadow without primer rubs off easily and fades fast. The one with primer is super pigmented and won’t budge!
Eye shadow primer is necessary to make your eye shadow or any eye makeup stay longer. Using an eye shadow primer will make a huge huge difference. You will notice better pigmentation and your eye shadow won’t smudge. It will stay on for hours.
This is a cheap eyeshadow primer more precisely it will cost you absolutely nothing. You will need simple ingredients that you most probably already have.
All you need to make the best eyeshadow primer
- A little container
- Cornstarch or Baby Talc
- Foundation or Concealer (I used my Garnier BB cream)
- Body Butter or Face Moisturizer (cannot use lotion as it is too runny in consistency) I used Olay’s moisturizer.
Whisk small amounts of foundation and moisturizer together and add in some cornstarch till you get a thick consistency. Use proportionate amounts, the amount you use of each depends entirely on you. Play around and find out what works for you best.
If you have oily skin around the eyes, add more cornstarch. If you have dry skin, then add more moisturizer.
Some of you might be surprised at the use of cornstarch but I promise you, cornstarch has no color and will leave no residue.
Before applying eye-makeup, just apply a small amount of primer on your eyelid. Wait for it to dry and then apply your makeup.
This eye primer works as good as any other high-end primer. If you are a makeup girl like me, you HAVE to try this.
Try this and do comeback and tell me how much you love it! 😉
