DIY Face Powder

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!
