Milk of Magnesia to Keep Your Eyeshadow in Place!

Ok, I know I said I would do a look a day, but seeing as my camera’s batteries are dead….I’ll do a review instead!

This may be the weirdest suggestion for a primer that you’ve ever heard of, but…I use milk of magnesia as my eyeshadow primer. I got this suggestion from where some people say they also use it as a face primer. I tried it out on my face for a while, but it did not seem to stand up to my ridiculously oily face! However as an eyelid primer it works just fine.

It works because the powdered magnesium absorbs oil. Some have found that it can also cause dryness or a tightness to the skin if too much was applied. I also have the Urban Decay Primer Potion [UDPP] and it works, but I feel guilty using the primer potion on a daily basis since it is sorda expensive in my book. You could also pick up generic milk of magnesia at a dollar store. It’ll be the cheapest primer you can find and it will last a lifetime!
