Primer is one of the most important steps when applying your makeup. Not only does it help your makeup stay put for longer, but it also helps big time when it comes to blending your makeup. It’s fair to say, applying primer is a must-do step in your makeup routine.

The kicker? Name brand primers can set you back $20 and up! You may be tempted to skip this step as a way to save money, but don’t! We’re going to let you in on a little secret: you can make your own primer with just three simple ingredients! This at-home primer will not only get the job done but it will also save you money. Win win!

Step 1: Add 3 tablespoons of water, 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel and 2 drops of almond oil into a small container or bowl.

Step 2: Mix all of the ingredients together.

Step 3: Apply evenly on your face and allow it to dry before adding any makeup to your skin. Refrigerate any product that is left over to keep it fresh when using throughout the week.

And that’s it! Within three easy steps you will have a primer that nourishes the skin and helps you achieve a flawless look.
