I keep saying I want to make my own make up and then I never get around to it. I ran out of loose powder foundation. I didn’t want to go to the store to pick some up and I remembered my friend Robin from Thank Your Body has a recipe for it on her site.
Even before I looked at the recipe I got all intimidated. I thought I wouldn’t have the supplies and that the shade wouldn’t match my skin colour….
Robin’s recipe is easy. You start with a base of arrowroot flour. Then you add one of 3 other ingredients to add colour. Since I have fair skin I used cinnamon and a little went a long way. Oh and I made the recipe in like a minute!
Try out the recipe. It keeps the shine away. Since it’s powder it gives a light coverage. It’s more for shine control.

Robin has an ebook called Toxic Free you can learn more about it here. Toxic Free contains a bit of make up, hair care, and household cleaners.
