Natural Homemade Foundation

Hand crafted establishment: Let’s do this! I’ve had many solicitations for a hand crafted establishment powder. In the wake of giving you hand crafted mascara, natively constructed become flushed, bronzer, and lip demulcent I truly needed to give you a decent custom made establishment powder. Obviously establishment is dubious. For one, it covers the entire face. It needs to go on well, stay put, coordinate skin tones, and not stop up your pores.

A robust errand, undoubtedly.

This has likewise been a test for me on an individual/mental level. I know. I’m discussing cosmetics, not some youth fear. Be that as it may, subsequent to fighting skin break out and awful skin for so long, and depending so intensely on thick establishments to “conceal” my flaws, I have at last gone to a place where I feel better than average in my skin. I once in a while utilize cosmetics at all nowadays. I don’t know whether you can see exactly how enormous this is.

Yet at the same time, I’ve been promising a custom made establishment for quite a while, so today I’m following through on that guarantee. In view of its tendency, in any case, there are a couple of things you ought to think about the formula I’m going to give you:

  • Homemade foundation is not an exact science. 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 rep. It’s totally natural (yay!) but may not “do the job” in the way you are used to. Maybe it will. That really depends on your skin type and your expectations.
  • Just because it’s all natural doesn’t mean it’s perfect for your skin.

Let’s talk about that third point for just a moment.

If you a familiar with my bronzer recipe you’ll notice that this foundation recipe is very similar. Simple ingredients that you can usually find in your kitchen at any time. Awesome, right? Yes. But you still need to proceed intelligently.

For example :

This recipe, like my bronzer, has the option of using finely ground cinnamon. According to this article, cinnamon can be very beneficial for your skin. But some individuals find that it causes redness. When we remember that herbs and spices are potent and powerful, this makes sense. Depending on our unique set of circumstances, even the most harmless ingredient may not be a good fit. There is nothing toxic in this recipe but I still urge you to try out a sample and decide if this is a good “every day makeup alternative” for you or not.

The good news it that you can make a really tiny batch for sampling. The really good news is that this homemade foundation powder is so so so simple.

This homemade foundation vs. mineral make up

Before I finally said “good bye” to my commercial make up I was wearing a nice (expensive) mineral foundation. And just so you know, there are recipes out there to teach you how to make your own mineral make up and where to get ingredients. And for some, mineral make up is seen to have a lot of benefits.

But I personally still don’t feel completely confident in most of the ingredients. Some ingredients like Mica are common skin irritants. Many contain Titanium Dioxide which I don’t feel really comfortable putting on my face every day. You’d need to do your own research and have a trusted source for quality ingredients if mineral make up interests you. But if your are looking for a homemade foundation that is like your mineral make up, this is a place to start.

Okay, enough stalling. Let’s do this!

All Natural Homemade Foundation Powder


For the base:
Arrowroot Powder

Add one or a combination of:
Cocoa Powder
Ground Cinnamon

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 this homemade foundation. Make sure to tap off excess before swiping face.

You may notice that my foundation is ridiculously light in color… that’s because I’m ridiculously pale. A little cocoa powder for me really is all I need to add. But yours will look different, don’t worry.

Since I know someone will ask for it, here is a before and after picture. It’s subtle, but I do think the homemade foundation smooths things out and takes out some of the redness in my face. Plus it provides a nice “foundation” for any other makeup I might want to put on.
