Homemade mineral makeup recipes, like this foundation, are a great way to save money, get the perfect shade, and protect your skin from harsh ingredients!
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….
One, most of the ingredients in this homemade mineral makeup recipe are relatively cheap. In fact, you probably have 1-4 of the ingredients for this homemade mineral makeup recipe in your kitchen right now.
Two, with this mineral makeup blush/foundation, I’m able to get just the right shade. How often have you ended up throwing out makeup (or banishing it to the back of a bathroom drawer) because once you got home you realized it wasn’t quite right for your skin? Thanks to this, the best mineral powder foundation, you can stop throwing makeup (and thus money) in the trash!
While most of the DIY makeup recipes I use are pretty easy, this one for the best mineral powder foundation is especially so. All you need for this homemade mineral makeup recipe is a few measuring spoons, a bowl, and something to mix the ingredients together with (ex. a wooden spoon). That’s it. No “cooking” involved.
