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!
Not only is this makeup primer for oily skin (and all skin types) gentle on your face, it’s actually good for your skin. Yep, this inexpensive makeup face primer will leave your skin feeling soft and looking healthy!
Bonus: This makeup primer for oily skin (and all skin types) is super simple to make. It only requires two quick steps. You don’t need a stove, microwave, or fridge.
Ready to whip up your own magical serum (a.k.a. the best makeup primer ever)? Let’s do it! Oh, and then I’ll show you how to apply makeup primer.
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.
2. Replace the lids and shake the bottle gently to combine.
3. Enjoy your inexpensive makeup primer!
Here’s how to apply makeup primer:
1. Gently shake or swirl the bottle to ensure the ingredients are well combined.
2. Mist your face with 1-2 sprays of this makeup primer for oily skin and all other skin types.
3. Fan your face to dry.
4. Apply makeup as you normally would.
5. Clean your makeup brushes with this homemade brush cleaner.

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
