If you’re not fond of wearing eyeshadow primer since you can’t spend minutes waiting for it to dry, you have to rethink your eye makeup routine. Those extra minutes you’ll spend is so worth it especially if you want to achieve the best eye makeup possible. An eyeshadow primer works as a base for the eyelids by evening out the surface and absorbing excess oil (a must for oily skin!). Yes, no more creasing! It also makes your eye makeup more vibrant and last longer throughout the day. Are you ready to make this awesome DIY eyeshadow primer that’s comparable to the cult fave UD Eyeshadow Primer Potion? Let’s begin!
DIY Eyeshadow Primer | Urban Decay Primer Potion Dupe
What You’ll Need:
- Fragrance-free body butter or thick face moisturizer
- 100% Aloe Vera Gel
- Small tub
- Flat scooping utensil
Step 1: Add Foundation Into the Small Container
Start by adding foundation into the container. It’s best to use a foundation that’s very close to the shade of your skin tone. To be on the safe side, use your go-to foundation.
Step 2: Add the Concealer
Add concealer into the container. It should be the same amount as the foundation. Again, choose your go-to liquid concealer for this one as you’d want a shade that’s very close to your skin tone.
Step 3: Add the Moisturizer
Using a flat scooping utensil, scoop out the same amount of product from your body butter or face moisturizer. Add a drop into the mixture. Moisturizer will help prevent the lids from drying up.
Step 4: Add the Aloe Vera Gel
Add just a drop of Aloe Vera gel into the mixture. Aloe Vera gel helps in keeping oil at bay, as excess oil can result to creasing.
Step 5: Mix Thoroughly
Using a toothpick, mix the products together thoroughly and you’re done!
