A cheap, quick, easy and fabulous eyeshadow primer!!
This is just a really quick method on how to make an eyeshadow primer. This will help your eyeshadow stick to your eyelids better and help it stay on all day, make your eyeshadow bolder and brighter and help it stay on all day!! The Urban Decay and Too Faced primer potions are so expensive, this is a cheaper option. Also you will need something to stir it all up with, i used a bobby pin that was misshappen, but you could use a matchstick. This is a really quick How-To, it's so easy it doesnt really need one!!

  • How to make an eyeshadow. Homemade Eyeshadow Primer! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Basically just squirt in the same amount of liquid foundation/concealer and moisturiser and stir. Add more foundation to make it darker, more moisturiser to lighten it up. This also works well as a tinted moisturiser, if you make it in a bigger quantity. Keep adding to it until you have the consistency and amount that you need. :) Rub a tiny bit onto your eyelid and up to brow bone and leave to dry before applying eyeshadow. My eyeshadow stayed on noticably longer after using this!! Great if your short on money (like me :D)

Does the shadow stay or get all crumbly in the crease?

Hi. I've been looking into making my own primer, so I what I want to ask is what brand of moisturizer do you recommend that is safe to use around your eyes?
