Today, a friend asked me if I had a recipe for concealer. I didn't, so here we are!
Now I know why she couldn't find one--they are hard to find! I waded through pages and pages of the exact same recipe. She was looking for something with a little more coverage, and she wanted something natural.
I haven't stumbled upon the best recipe ever, but I think I've found something that will help her out.
DIY Concealer Recipe
The most popular concealer recipes call for mixing your usual moisturizer with a drop or two of liquid foundation. I do this as a DIY tinted moisturizer, and it works great for minor blemishes. This will cover uneven skin tone very well, but it's not great for acne or scars.
DIY Spot Treatment Concealer
If you want a thicker spot treatment, you can make it from your own liquid foundation. The trick is to make the formula thicker by removing the water to increase the pigment concentration. This is easy: Just place about a teaspoon of foundation in a small container and place in the fridge. Do not put a lid on the container so the water can evaporate. In about two or three days, you'll have a nice, thick concealer.
If you start with an organic liquid foundation like Ecco Bella or Bourjois Bio, your concealer will be organic as well.
I wish I had a completely made from scratch recipe, but this is the best I could find and feel comfortable recommending.
