DIY Pale lose face powder

This recipe was my own creation. Feel free to change it to suit yourself if you want.

You will need:
1 empty cleaned container (preferably small)
Plain baby powder
Scented white body powder (mine has a shimmer)
White lose shimmer mineral eye shadow (with high pigment if possible)
Translucent face powder that is close to your natural colour

Begin by pouring a small amount of baby powder into the container; approx. the amount of powder you want to make.

Add some coloured face powder so it is the colour you desire.  I cannot give you exact proportions here because the ideal shade varies from person to person.

Add a tiny amount of the scented body powder to add a nice scent and subtle shimmer

Add a generous amount of the eye shadow so the shimmer is to your liking. If you want a matte effect then use eye shadow without shimmer.

To use, moisturize and let it soak in. Then apply your usual foundation. Foundation sticks well to dry skin but powder needs something sticky so apply the pale foundation before the foundation has dried completely.
Note: This is not a long lasting powder and you will need to re apply every so often. It is best used as a natural look because it is very nice and light.

  1. Very interesting. I might have to try this out sometime (Except probably not for a while as I don't actually wear makeup) =)

  2. It doesn't matter if you do or not. I don't wear foundation or anything, but I do wear eyeliner. I generally go through phases with makeup, sometimes I'll wear some, and sometimes I'll wear nothing.

  3. I should add that this is designed to be done ON THE CHEAP and should not replace actual makeup, which is far better for the skin. xxx Lilly
