Wondering what is makeup primer? I’m so glad you asked. The simple answer to “what is makeup primer?” is a magical serum. More specifically though, makeup face primer preps your face for the application of more makeup. It cuts down on shine, helps makeup last longer, and can even minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. The best makeup primers can also help protect your skin from environmental damage (ex. the sun).
You can purchase makeup primer for oily skin, dry skin, red skin, etc. at the store; unfortunately, they can be pretty pricey and may contain ingredients you would rather not expose your skin to. This can be specially true if you struggle with acne. Makeup primer (at least many versions) is formulated with silicone-based polymers like dimethicone; unfortunately, there have been reports of allergic reactions including cystic acne outbreaks in response to the use of dimethicone (source: Huffingtonpost).
Tip: If you are concerned about acne, definitely try this anti acne makeup primer. However, you may also want to try other homemade bath and beauty products as they tend to be less harsh on skin and less prone to clogging pores. For example, I’m a huge fan of this mineral powder foundation and this homemade blush.
In my opinion, the best makeup primer also happens to be a pretty inexpensive makeup primer. It’s the homemade makeup face primer I’m about to share with you!

Homemade Makeup Primer For All Skin Types (Oily, Dry, Normal & Combination)
1. Using a funnel, add all the ingredients for your makeup primer for oily skin (and all other skin types) to your spray bottle.
Tip: Consider using a tinted glass spray bottle. Essential oils can be degraded by light overtime. A tinted container will keep your makeup face primer good longer. Plus, essential oils can erode plastic overtime.
