I have a guest blogger today, Jenny of Heck yeah, I Made It Myself! Be sure to stop by and check out her blog! Today Jenny is going to show us how to make our own mineral powder makeup for natural, healthy, basic & simple beauty! This is frugal also as you know and will last you forever.
Recipe: Equal parts cornstarch and french green clay (I got mine online @ amazon.com but I think Whole Foods has it) and, if you want to add a hint of color, (I did) a little bit of cocoa powder.
I LOVE this stuff! It cost me about $10 for everything and I have enough for at least 5 years. Lol! Honestly. I used 1/4 c of each (which was an 1/8th of the bag of french green clay) and then put a small amount of the mixture in a leftover Mary Kay mineral powder container (that lasts me several months) and still had more than 1/4 of a cup of the mixture left. I gave that to my mother in law and still have more left than I know what to do with.
Going from an $18 each Mary Kay powder (which I loved, don't get me wrong) to $10 for more than I know what to do with? I'll take it!
And it works. My face looked really smooth and the french green clay has great benefits to your skin NATURALLY. I'm sold! :)
Ps: It smells like chocolate so how can you go wrong? Lol!
Thank you Jenny for sharing and teaching us today!
