I have been using Urban Decay Primer Potion for years.
I love the stuff.
It is awesome.

I start trying to rationalize. “I don’t REALLY need primer right? It doesn’t help that much….20 dollars!? Is it that important?”
I am here to tell you that voice in my head has kept me from buying primer potion for months.
My sister can’t use it because it gives her a rash on her eyelids and she doesn’t like parabens so…
Together we set out to make our own!
After much trial and error we finally found a potion that WORKS!

1/2 Teaspoon All Natural Chapstick
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
1 1/2 Teaspoon Liquid Foundation (whatever you have on hand)
