Smooth Finish DIY Organic Foundation Makeup…With Sunscreen

posted in Beauty > Makeup
  • Ingredients:
    1.5oz Almond Oil (or unrefined, raw, organic carrier oil of your choice; learn more about carrier oils here and purchase them here)
    1oz Shea Butter (organic, raw, unrefined shea butter like this)
    .5oz Cocoa Butter (organic, raw, unrefined cocoa butter like this)
    .5oz Beeswax (this is by far my favorite beeswax)
    1/8t Vitamin E (make sure it’s not from GMO sources; this is my favorite Vitamin E)
    .5oz Zinc Oxide (make sure it is uncoated, non-nano, and not micronized; purchase the zinc oxide here or you can purchase a small amount from me HERE)
    Cocao Powder (organic cocao (or cocoa)

  • powder like this)
    Cinnamon (organic cinnamon like this)

  • Tools:
    Double-boiler (I just make my own with a glass bowl over a pot of shallow simmering water)
    Kitchen scale (this is my favorite kitchen scale)
    Container for finished product (see more below re: container choices)

  • Make It:
    Using your scale and the tare function, measure and combine the first five ingredients into the glass bowl into your double-boiler.
    DO NOT add the zinc oxide, cocoa powder, or cinnamon!
    Completely melt the first five ingredients, stirring occasionally with your whisk.
    Remove from heat and allow time to cool a bit (a few minutes…and wipe excess moisture off the outside of your bowl, too).

  • Place your bowl back on the scale, hit tare, and add in spoonfuls of zinc oxide until you get to .5oz. This gives you approximately a 20 SPF coverage (as it’s approximately 10% of the total weight…read more about sunscreen here). Whisk to completely combine.

    Add 1/8t cinnamon; whisk to combine.

    Add cocoa powder a little at a time and whisk to get to the color you need…
    1/2T cocoa powder is a light foundation
    1/2T plus 1t is a medium foundation
    1/2T plus 2t is a medium-dark foundation
    Simply start with 1/2T of cocoa powder, whisk to combine, check on your wrist for a color match

  • and add more cocoa powder (1/2t at a time) until you reach your perfect color

    Pour into your selected container and allow to cool.

    FYI… T=Tablespoon and t=Teaspoon
