Tinted Make-up Lotion and Tinted Powder

In my quest to cutting out toxins from my daily routine, I am working on finding some options for make up. I have found a recipe on one of my favorite natural DIY blogs, scratchmommy.com that I like fairly well and that I have tweaked just a little to fit my skin. One day, we hope to figure out how to bring this to you pre- packaged at Finnyfarm.com but until then you may be stuck DIY-ing yourself just like me. But fret not, you can contact me for ingredients. I buy everything in bulk, so if you are interested in trying these recipes, send me a quick email and we can work out the details of getting supplies to you!

Here it goes:

1) Tinted Make-up:


21 g Sweet Almond Oil

14 g organic, unrefined Shea Butter

7 g organic, unrefined Cocoa Butter

1 g Vitamin E oil

7 g non-Nano Zinc Oxide

3/4 T Cacao powder

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

melt almond oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and vitamin e oil in a double boiler. Let cool slightly. Whisk in zinc oxide slowly using a hand blender. Add Cacao powder and cinnamon according to complexion. try out on back of your hand for closest match. 

This makes a 2 oz jar. Option: add a few drops of carrot seed essential oil for additional SPF 

2) Tinted Face Powder;


1 T Arrowroot powder

1/2 tsp non-Nano Zinc Oxide

1/8-1/4 tsp Cacao Powder (don't confuse this with cocoa powder)

1/16-1/8 tsp of Cinnamon (based on your skin tone)

gently mix in a small bowl with a clean whisk. 

Place in an empty powder jar. 


Happy DIY-ing, folks. Let me know how it goes!
