Here’s How To Make Makeup Primers At Home
Keeping in mind that we all have various skin types, here is a recipe that suits all skin types and is safe to use. For this recipe you would need one-third cup of aloe vera and a teaspoon of the virgin coconut oil, along with mineral powder of your choice. Aloe vera is safe and has vitamin E in it which is good for the skin. Coconut oil is a hydrating agent and ensures that the skin doesn’t turn rough and flaky, while mineral powder is used to bring on that little shine you need sans being over-the-top. What you need to do is to warm the coconut oil first on low heat and remove to cool. When it comes to room temperature, you now can add the aloe vera paste to it. Mix the two with a plastic spoon and then gently add the mineral powder to the mix. Mix well again for a couple of seconds and pour the concoction into a small pot or tube and let it settle. Use it when you need to wear makeup, and your face wouldn’t look patchy or blotchy.
