Now on to a new DIY beauty product. Some readers were concerned that my Natural Translucent Face Powder would not be sheer on their faces. It goes on sheer, not white, but I said that I would try to make it with some color. I had read somewhere, I am not sure, that you could add unsweetened cocoa to it to give it color. So the science experiment for the day is to make a flesh toned Translucent Face Powder.
The original recipe for Natural Translucent Face Powder was:
2 TB Potato Starch
2 TB Arrowroot Powder.
I have decided that I like this recipe better.
New Translucent Face Powder without Tint
2 TB Cornstarch
2 TB Arrowroot Powder
Mix together well and use with a powder brush. I feel like this is a little sheerer then with the Potato Starch.
1 tsp cinnamon (a light brown color)
3/4 tsp Mace (a golder color)
1/8 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (a dark brown color)
Once, I started adding cocoa powder, I felt that it was a little to dark for my skin, so I mixed up a different batch with Mace and Cinnamon. Mace is more a lighter gold color then cinnamon. Even though I am giving amounts to add, you will need to play with it a little until you get a color that you like. Test a small amount on your wrist until it is the color that matches your skin best.
Mine is still pretty light, which is all right with me, also I just use a small amount. I dip my brush in the powder and then shake it off, and then brush it on my face. If you want this darker you can add more cinnamon or more unsweetened cocoa powder, depending on the color that you want. You could also add more mace, though I didn't love the smell of that. I have also read that some people add some of their own foundation mineral powder to give it color. I don't use mineral powder because it makes my fine lines show, I don't need to look any older!!!
Let me know what you think of this face powder. I am always happy to hear from you. I hope this is something a little closer to what some of you are looking for.
