Step 1: Natural Foundation

Foundation is.... well the foundation that you build the rest of your makeup up on! This simple and natural way to make it will produce a beautiful glowing face!

1. Start with a base of either arrowroot or cornstarch (arrowroot works better)

2. Slowly add cocoa powder and finely ground cinnamon powder until you get a shade close to your skin tone

3. Store in jar or old powder holding and use a brush to apply on your face

4. For a more solid base add a few drops of essential oil (make sure you use one that can be applied to skin!), mix it with the powder, and push down in a compact. This will make it hard like a regular compact

Step 2: Natural Bronzer

A quick dab of bronzers will make your skin tanned and gorgeous. Try this simple recipe to concoct the perfect makeup!

1. Use arrowroot or cornstarch for base (arrowroot works best)

2. Slowly add cocoa powder and cinnamon to achieve a shade a bit darker than your skin to give it a nice tanned look.

    Instead of using a blush just pinch your cheeks and they go pink. As natural as it gets :-)

    Looking forward to trying some of these. Out of curiosity, how sweat/ moisture proof are the powder recipes? I've used unsweetened cocoa powder in a dry shampoo recipe before and have definitely noticed a cocoa smell when I get warm.

    The cocoa I used in the batch above did not smell sweet at all to me. However, as I said below the paprika was way overpowering so I am working on that. The powder foundation is not moisture proof at all but adding a bit of olive oil and mixing it in will make it moisture proof. Did that answer your question? Ask if you want to know anything else!

    Your welcome! Right now I am working on some new blush and holding off on the lipstick because I found the paprika over powering......
