After seeing a video by NaturalBornQueen, inspired by mignondee,

I just had to try this substitute for expensive makeup primer recipe. The “ingredients” are regular flavor Milk of Magnesia (“MOM”) and Monistat Chafing Powder Gel. I put the “MOM” in a spray bottle. Although I like the spray bottle, you can’t control where it lands but I can deal with that. Allow it to dry before applying the Chafing Gel. The “MOM” application may appear “white & pasty” but that is fixed when the Chafing Gel and makeup are applied. The Monistat Chafing Gel Powder makes my skin feel velvety smooth.

I’m getting ready for work and only wear basic day makeup.

Makeup Application
I have skin discolorations due to adult acne breakouts and perhaps for not using a Bluetooth hands free device with my cell phone. But I digress. I am using the Maybelline Liquid Mousse makeup in Cocoa. I like to apply it over the dark spots like a concealer. Once it dries, I add another layer for more coverage. This is a great makeup to be a drug store brand. The souffle cream foundation gives even better coverage.

Lip Color
I am using one of my $2.50 e.l.f. 2 n 1 Conditioning Lip Glosses. I’ve tried and LOVED other $1.00 e.l.f. glosses but was surprised when the 2 n 1 was very tacky and gummy. I had to use a tried and true model’s trick, inserting my finger in my mouth, to remove the excess lip gloss (or lip stick) to prevent it from getting on my teeth.

Makeup Setting/Finishing Spray
I like to use a finishing spray. I have both Model in a Bottle and Urban Decay’s All Nighter. Both are great but I prefer Model in a Bottle. Neither burns or stings.
