With the warmer weather on it's way, I like to have a bit of oil control for my skin. I was browsing Pinterest and was intrigued by the idea of making my own face powder. I found this recipe, http://www.greatoakcircle.com/homemade-natural-makeup-translucent-powder, and decided to give it a try. Just 3 simple ingredients and poof, instant translucent face powder to sop up the summer oilies. I was pretty excited that the "pigment" in this recipe is cocoa powder and I used arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch for a smoother finish.
The verdict: I am sold. It leaves me feeling dry with a nice smooth finish. Also, it does not settle into the creases in my face and there are no weird smells or unpronounceable chemicals!
