Making an all natural homemade foundation offers a great challenge. If you love DIY project, I’m sure you will push through with it. But it needs your great patience because, as Robin Konie, the owner of ThankYourBody blog says on her article All Natural Homemade Foundation that:
*It requires some experimentation to get a color that works for you
*This is not like your typical foundation that you buy in the mall, grocery store or from your Avon direct sellers representative. It’s totally natural but may not work in the way you are used to.
*Just because it’s all natural doesn’t mean it’s perfect for your skin.
Robin Konie, who is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT) and a Certified Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analyst (CLMA), reveals a great recipe of a natural homemade foundation that is easy to follow. It uses ingredients that include arrowroot powder, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, nutmeg. You have an option to add jojoba, olive or almond oil on this recipe.
For the base:
Add one or a combination of:
Jojoba, Olive, or Almond Oil (optional)
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.
