Primer can give your makeup staying power. Mix a ¼ cup of distilled water with one tablespoon of milk of magnesia in a trial-size spray bottle to make homemade makeup primer. Add aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil for dry skin.
- Mix the ingredients
Use a measuring cup and a measuring spoon to mix ¼ cup of distilled water and 1 tablespoon of milk of magnesia into your spray bottle. Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients.
- Add aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil
Add 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel and one or two drops of vitamin E oil to the spray bottle if you have dry skin. Shake the bottle well to mix the gel and oil in with the other ingredients.
- Apply the primer
Mist your face lightly with your homemade makeup primer. Wet a cosmetic sponge with tap water, and squeeze out the excess. Gently pat your face with the cosmetic sponge to spread the primer evenly over your skin. Allow the primer to dry completely, and apply your foundation.
