Homemade natural matte finishing powder

Hello all, I’d like to say thank you to those who have followed and liked my posts. I have yet another secret for all of you…

DIY matte finishing powder

  • Cornflour 1tbsp
  • Baby powder 1tsp
  • Ground cinnamon and ginger

Add the cornflour and baby powder into a pot and mix evenly. Sprinkle in the ground cinnamon and ginger, a little at a time until desired tone. You don’t need to add a lot, you’re simply adding gentle tones.

The cinnamon will add tanned tones and the ginger will add yellow, golden hues (you can also use turmeric which is much darker) You could add highlighter for a shimmer, perfect the upcoming summer months, a bronzed, glowing look.

I made this beautiful DIY today and it really works. Matte finish, evens out complexion and skin tone and it smells divine!

The eco tools brush is a duo, the right end is for blush and the left is for powder. I recommend a good powder brush to distribute it evenly on the face.

DIY BB cream

Hello all, running late? I know how hard early mornings can be… And you don’t have enough time to do your make up or you simply prefer a lighter coverage? Then bb cream is the one for you, even more so because it’s homemade, you already have everything you need, it’s quick, simple and it’s perfect for your skin tone.

DIY custom BB cream

Gather the following supplies, mix together in a small jar or pot and violΓ . You can adjust colour and coverage by adding more or less foundation. I used a green concealer to help reduce redness. It’s a luxurious coverage and texture, light and smooth.

  • Moisturiser 1/2tsp
  • Sunscreen 1/2tsp
  • Face serum 1/4tsp
  • Primer 1/4tsp
  • Aloe Vera gel 1/4tsp
  • Concealer 1/4tsp
  • Green or purple concealer (I used 2 pumps – use 1 pea size amount if it’s non liquid)
  • Foundation (I used 2, one light coverage and full – use desired amount)
  • Highlighter (I used a cream highlighter, powder will be fine) 1/4tsp
