Clean Living // Organic Foundation Recipe

Whipping up homemade makeup concoctions have been one of my favorite parts of this clean living series. What's nice about this particular recipe is that it's ideal for absorbing oil, which is helpful as the weather starts to warm up. Plus, as always, there are no chemicals that are harsh on your sensitive skin.

Ingredients:

Arrowroot Powder
Cocoa Powder
Green clay
nutmeg (optional)

Begin by mixing together equal parts of arrowroot powder and green clay. I did half of a cup of each. Then, mix in a small amount of cocoa powder. This is to determined by your own skin complexion and how dark you'd like the foundation to be.

To use, apply with a soft makeup brush evenly throughout your face, highlight your T zone, and work outwards.

*This recipe produces a 'green' tint when first applied, but will disappear once it's set onto your skin.

  9. Wow, this is pretty impressive! I use cocoa powder mixed with cornstarch for a dry shampoo substitute and I love smelling like chocolate! I bet I wouldn't mind a chocolate face as well!
