DIY: Eyeshadow Primer

You know those things you can't get by without but you just don't like spending money on; like gas and tampons? I think eyeshadow primer is one of those things. For such a little bottle it can get pretty pricy, but your shadow won't last 'til lunch without it.

All you need for long-lasting shadow are two things you probably already have in your makeup bag: lotion/cream and a liquid foundation or concealer. 
I used Equate eye cream and a little bit of my True Match concealer (I included the foundation in the picture as another option)
Of course, you will need some place to mix the products. I just took the lid off the cream and scooped a little bit of cream into it. Since I used concealer I used my brush as a mixer, but if you use foundation you can use your finger or a q-tip! 

Mix the products to your liking, and voila! Your makeup will last plus your eyes will be nice and soft, and smooth!


  1. I'd just skip the eye cream and use the concealer, depending on type and brand of concealer

  2. This is a really good idea :)
    I'm going to give it a go and see omit works for me :)
