Making your own natural makeup is easy and cost effective. The hardest part is mixing the correct color for your skin tone. A small amount of cornstarch, cocoa powder and cinnamon can yield a beautiful powder in less than one hour.
- Gather ingredients
In order to make your own natural makeup, you will need to gather arrowroot powder or cornstarch, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, an old container and a brush. This will yield a powder. If you would like to make a compact, also get vodka or an essential oil.
- Begin making color
Start with a base of the arrowroot powder or cornstarch. The amount you use will be slightly less than the amount of powder you end up with. Slowly add in cocoa powder and cinnamon until you get a color close to your skin tone. When you are close, test a small amount on your skin and look at it in different lights.
- Place in container
If you want a powder, all you have left to do is put the mix in a container. If you would like the consistency to be thicker, such as in a compact, add a few drops of essential oil or vodka to the powder and press into an old compact container.
