Homemade Face Powder

Ever have life force your hand? Twice I had intentions of making my own face powder, but didn't. Instead I ran to the store and bought some more powder. I had every excuse in the book for why I couldn't just make my own: I haven't had time to research recipes. I don't think I have all of the ingredients. It's going to take all day and I have to work tomorrow. Well let me tell you that all of that was bogus. I was running out of face powder again and I was tempted to just go buy another container, but with some encouragement, I decided I was just going to try making my own. It was the easiest thing in the world: I had all of the ingredients and it only took 30 seconds to mix. It literally took longer to walk into my kitchen than it did to make it. So what is this great recipe? Cornstarch Cocoa Powder Yep, that's it. 2 whole ingredients that I bet you already have in your kitchen (or maybe, already have in your bathroom!) Now the exact ratio will depend on your skin color, but that's the beauty of it. You can customize it to fit your exact skin color. Needing to go darker for your glowing summer tan? Just add some more cocoa powder. I've used cornstarch alone before and it is great for absorbing sweat when it's hot outside. Unfortunately it can make you look pretty pale. The cocoa powder gives you some color and helps it so you don't look like a vampire. (True story! I slathered on the cornstarch when I went as a vampire for Halloween!) How do I mix it? I'm pretty pale, so I'm at a 1:5 or 1:4 ratio, so 1 teaspoon cornstarch to 1/5 or 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder. This combination fits a broad range of skin tones though because one can use straight cocoa powder or straight cornstarch. You'll just have to play around to find your ideal color. How do you apply it? I use a makeup brush, the same one I was using with compressed powder. It is loose powder so you have to tap the brush well or you'll be covered in powder! Does it make you smell like chocolate? I'll admit, I do get a whiff of chocolate when I apply the powder. Who doesn't like a little chocolate scent in the morning? However it quickly dissipates and I do NOT smell it the rest of the day. Seriously, you will NOT smell like chocolate! Does it work? This is the real question, isn't it? I think it does. I am still using a commercial foundation, so that provides most of the cover-up/ color consistency. However there had been days that I had forgot to apply my powder and it wasn't pretty. There were pores for days! However since using this powder I've not noticed that problem and in fact it does provide some color--which is better than just plain corn starch!
