Lately I’ve been needing more face powder. Every visit to Walmart finds me with arms (or cart) full of needful things and me making my decision to skip my face powder, yet again. My quest to be more self-sufficient found me today wondering whether or not there was a simple way to make my much-needed face powder, rather than waiting until I have an available $10 for it. After browsing a bit on the internet, I found just what I wanted on YouTube (unfortunately, the link is no longer available). I had to adjust the recipe some to fit my taste (I wanted to use it in place of my Maybelline Mineral Power powder foundation). Here’s how I did it.
Homemade Face Powder
1 Tb Corn Starch
1 Tb + 1 tsp Hershey’s Cocoa (not hot cocoa mix, but the unsweetened variety)
Mix well in a bowl until evenly mixed, with no lumps. Store in an old loose powder container and apply as needed.
NOTE: Depending upon whether you intend to use this as a powder for over your existing foundation, or as your foundation, you will want to adjust the amount of cocoa.
