With my current mission to eliminate toxins from my food and skin care, I recently became obsessed with the idea that I could make my own make-up. I’d been going without for a few weeks, and I was beginning to feel rather frumpy. I was so glad when I found this post on how to make your own mineral powder foundation! I was even more excited when I saw how easy and cheap it is.
At first, I was really nervous that this wouldn’t work as well as store-bought foundation, but I figured the materials were cheap enough to be worth the experiment. I mean, c’mon. Baby powder and corn starch?! Most people have that somewhere in their houses already!
Now that I’ve tried it, however, I can attest to the fact that it works as well as the store bought stuff. I’m also baffled by the fact that I always agonized over what color foundation to buy for what time of year (it changes as much as 3 shades between summer and winter!) This stuff is totally white, but goes on translucent, which means I won’t have to change shades when my skin darkens up this summer!
If you’re frugal and green, I really suggest you try making your own foundation. Not only is it very easy, but you could be saving yourself $30 a pop, and that really adds up!
