Homemade Make-Up

While it’s true that inner beauty needs no make-up, as women we often feel like our outer beauty needs a little cosmetic help.  But if you’re a little nervous about the chemical additives found in many cosmetic brands, think about inventing your own make-up at home with a few simple ingredients. Keep in mind that the process may take a little experimentation and just because it’s natural doesn’t mean it’s necessarily perfect for your skin.  With that in mind, foundation can be made with a base of arrowroot powder.  Then add a combination of cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg for color.  Make blush by starting with an arrowroot powder and adding hibiscus and ground cinnamon for color.  And for eye shadow, start with arrowroot powder and add color with any combination of cocoa powder, nutmeg, dried beet powder, turmeric, and all spice.
