DIY: Translucent Powder
I tried another little DIY beauty project out. I found this one on this girl’s great blog via Pinterest.
I was out of my translucent powder so it was the perfect time to give this a try.
Keep in mind-I have not used Bare Minerals or Bare Escentuals cosmetics in the past. I tried mineral makeup once and it made my skin itch really bad. I also can’t get by with powder foundations because my skin is just a bit too scary for that light of coverage. But I digress…
You will need just 3 things:
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp baby powder (I’m using cucumber melon because it smells nice)
- An empty powder sifter (I got one at Sephora or you could use an empty loose powder container as I am here)
*Optional: original blog post says add cocoa powder for extra color. I thought about cinnamon perhaps if you have warm toned skin? The blogger has beautiful medium-toned skin so I knew if it didn’t look chalky on her, it likely wouldn’t on me (currently a pale whale.)
Add cornstarch and baby powder to powder sifter. Close lid and shake ingredients thoroughly.
Apply with large fluffy powder brush or puff.
