Has anyone ever made their own foundation?
 
I just saw a recipe for making your own foundation using Arrowroot powder and cinnamon....

Has anyone ever tried this? What could I use instead of Arrowroot?

I just made my own mineral powder using organic cornstarch and an organic French Green Clay Powder. You can add organic cocoa for more color, but my skin is so fair that I didn't add any. The ratio is 1 to 1 which makes it really easy. I really like it so far!

I have been looking for a "recipe" for making my own foundation. Could you post it?

All Natural Homemade Foundation

Ingredients:

For the base:
Arrowroot Powder

Add one or a combination of:
Cocoa Powder
Ground Cinnamon
Nutmeg

Jojoba, Olive, or Almond Oil (optional)

Directions:

1. Start with a base of arrowroot powder (1 tsp. for dark skin – 1 Tbs. for light skin)
2. Slowly add in one or combination of the cocoa powder, cinnamon, or nutmeg until you reach your desired tone.
3. If you want more of a “compact” foundation, add some jojoba/olive/almond oil to the mixture and press down into a compact. (Start with 5 drops and keep adding until it reaches your desired texture).

Use a brush to apply foundation. Make sure to tap off excess before swiping face.

Thank you so much! I am enjoying making my own makeup and other things as well. I appreciate it!
