Tonight I decided to make my own all-natural foundation powder. Homemade makeup just sounds genius to me! I wasn't expecting it to work out well, but I was really surprised to find that the powder I made actually is comparable to powders that I purchase for $15 or more! Not to mention it's completely natural and homemade, which means it doesn't have any harmful chemicals or irritants! Major bonus!
If you're interested in making your own face powder, here's how:
- Pure corn starch
- Natural unsweetened cocoa powder
- Natural ground cinnamon
Apply the mixture as you would any other loose powder. Make sure you mix it really well to get rid of clumps. You can even use a sifter if you want a really fine powder, but honestly it goes on fine either way. I use a regular powder brush (I looove my Eco Tools powder brush!) to apply my homemade face powder.
- $1.67 for the cornstarch
- $3.00 for the cinnamon
- $2.99 for the cocoa
*For those with acne prone skin, this foundation powder is an excellent option. Not only is it a healthier option, but the cinnamon is great for treating and preventing breakouts because it has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties!
