custom make the perfect DIY blush
I love to make my own DIY blush. It’s takes minutes to make and I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. First, it’s a great way to save money. Second, I know exactly the ingredients I’m placing on my skin. Third, it works! I use face clay in my recipes and find that it helps the powder stay on my face. I also use a make-up setting spray. This way my make-up lasts the entire day.
In order to find a blush with safe and healthy ingredients, you need to do your research. You can walk through a department store and find beautiful expensive brands of make-up. Wait…Look beyond the pretty packaging. Most companies start their ingredient list with products you wouldn’t hesitate to use on your skin. Unfortunately, the unhealthy stuff gets mixed in too!
This recipe is so simple to make
1 Tablespoon of Pink Kaolin Clay
1/2 Teaspoon of Hibiscus Flower
3/4 Teaspoon of Beet Root Powder
1/4 Teaspoon of White Kaolin Clay
Mix it up and you are done!!
To find a color that worked for me, I added my ingredients in 1/4 tsp increments. Write down your recipe as you go along. The ingredients will last you a long time. You may decide to make an extra batch as gifts for friends and family.
A good place to find small packets of ingredients is on Etsy or Amazon. It’s possible beet root and hibiscus can be found in bulk at a grocery or health food store.
I ordered Hibiscus Flower and Beet Root Powder together to so I could compare the colors. Look at my first picture above of the powers before they are mixed. The deep purple color is the Hibiscus Flower. The texture is different then the clay or the beet root. It doesn’t blend together like the others do. It works in my blend because of the creaminess of the clays.
The first times I made foundation and blush, I used arrowroot powder. The product didn’t seem to stick well to my skin. After trying clay in my skincare, I found it to have a much nicer feel.
The other thing I discovered was that a make-up setting spray was the key to having powdered makeup last.
