Ingredients Needed

  • Cream base, pure with no additives
  • Aloe vera gel
  • Vegetable glycerine. You can use pharmacy-bought medical glycerine, but if you want your makeup primer natural, use vegetable glycerine.

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Bowl
  • Teaspoon
  • Small container to store your DIY Natural Makeup Primer

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

How to Use: DIY Natural Makeup Primer

Once you’ve successfully crafted your own DIY Natural Makeup Primer enriched with Aloe Vera, follow these simple steps to achieve a flawless and radiant makeup application:

  1. Cleanse and Moisturize: Start with a clean and moisturized face. Gently cleanse your skin and apply your regular moisturizer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup.
  2. Apply a Small Amount: Take a pea-sized amount of your homemade natural makeup primer and apply it evenly to your face. Focus on areas where you usually apply makeup, such as your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin.
  3. Blend It In: Use your fingertips or a makeup sponge to blend the primer into your skin. Make sure it’s evenly distributed and seamlessly integrated.
  4. Allow it to Set: Give the primer a minute or two to set before moving on to your makeup application. This will ensure a smooth and long-lasting makeup look.
  5. Apply Makeup: Proceed with your regular makeup routine. The natural primer creates a smooth base that helps your foundation, concealer, and other makeup products glide on effortlessly.
  6. Enjoy the Results: Revel in your flawless makeup application. Notice how your makeup stays in place throughout the day and maintains a natural, radiant finish.

Remember, a little goes a long way with your DIY natural makeup primer. Start with a small amount, and if you feel you need more coverage, you can always add a bit extra. Experiment and find the perfect amount that works for your skin and desired makeup look.

By following these steps, you’ll not only enhance the longevity of your makeup but also treat your skin to the goodness of aloe vera, cream base, and glycerine – a winning combination for a beautifully natural and glowing appearance.
