I have to say, I love this DIY makeup primer and setting spray! Earlier in the week, I posted a recipe for mineral make up. I have used mineral make up for many years now and loved it. This year my skin has taken a huge turn. I have always had slightly oily skin but this winter I have become crazy dry. Like peeling skin, rough dry patches and make up looking pasty and uneven. In a nut shell, my skin looks really parched. Honestly, I have no clue what’s going on-hormones are my guess but none the less, it’s no good. I have come up with a DIY makeup primer and finishing spray that will set your make up, make it last longer and give a boost of moisture for a hydrated, dewy look. Read on for this super effective, yet simple recipe!
There are many make up setters out there. One in particular is Mac’s Fix +. Reviews are amazing for this product. People rave about it! So, you know me, I had to check out those ingredients!! Turns out, there’s not much to it. So, if you need a product to set your make up, and a solution to combat the dry parched look, this DIY is just for you!
DIY Makeup Primer & Finishing Spray
You must find the right spray bottle or automizer for this product. Too thick of a spray and it could leave you looking splotchy. I was excited to buy an olive oil automizer, thinking it would be a micro fine mist-it wasn’t-at all, so the hubs was happy to use it for cooking! I usually get my bottles from amazon, but the spray bottles I use are actually from Specialty Bottle. THESE are the spray bottles I am super satisfied with. You get the finest mist that works perfect for this project.
- Use this finishing spray before and after applying make up. It works excellent with mineral make up but also works fine with a cream foundation.
- You can use this spray to “spot clean” your make up brushes AND it makes a killer toner! Use this spray anytime through out the day to refresh your make up and give your skin a “drink”.
- Spray 1-3 sprays, 8 inches from your skin. I left my pics un-edited so you could see how fresh this makes your skin look when sprayed on top of make up.
So simple, yet so effective! ENJOY!
