DIY Mineral Makeup

DIY Mineral MakeupYou 
Mineral makeup is more than just a new beauty trend - it offers health benefits for skin as well. And now you can make it at home!

It's made of all natural, finely ground minerals from the earth, without many of the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup.

If you have sensitive skin, and have had trouble in the past with commercial makeup (even store-bought mineral makeup!) being too heavily fragrances, or containing irritants like bismuth oxychloride.

This formula eliminates classic irritants so that it's kinder to the skin.

Since it contains titanium dioxide which has anti-inflammatory properties, it also has a calming effect on the skin, particularly important if you suffer from inflammatory problems such as rosacea or acne.

 By making your own at home, you can control not only the purity of the ingredients you use, you can also create a custom color, matched exactly to your own skin tone!

 Here's what you'll need:

  • Micronized Titanium Dioxide
  • Zinc Oxide
  • Sericite Mica - Matte Finish
  • Magnesium Stearate
  • Yellow, Red & Brown Iron Oxide Pigments
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil
  • Essential Oil (opt.) I like carrot seed oil for its skin-rejuvenative properties, or tea-tree oil as an excellent treatment for acne
  • Mortar & Pestle or small grinder
  • 30g (1oz) Sifter Jars
  • measuring spoons
  • Kabuki brush (large full brush for foundation)
Makes approximately (3)-30 gram jars (3 oz)
