The Best Homemade Mineral Makeup Foundation
Whether you have sensitive skin or not, you have to be careful with store-bought makeups. This is especially true for many of the discount brands. For instance, store bought powdered makeup can contain questions ingredients like lead, formaldehyde, parabens, and other unpronounceable things. In fact, even an ingredient that sounds as harmless as “fragrance” can cause skin irritation. That’s why I use homemade mineral makeup recipes whenever possible, like this best mineral powder foundation.
In addition to protecting my skin from harsh ingredients and chemicals, this mineral blush recipe helps me save money, so it’s a win-win. Here’s how….
