DIY moisturizing foundation & shimmer

Okay, got to share this with you guys: For foundation I use mineral powder but it started itching so I stopped using it. Today I decided to make a cream-foundation of the mineral powder, figuring that the irritation may be alleviated when I mix the powder in a cream. My daughter wanted a new shimmer cream for highlights in her make-up.

Foundation: I use my own base-cream that I make but any good quality natural cream would do: Put some cream in a small bowl and mix in the mineral powder little by little until you have the color richness desired. Put into a container and let sit for a day or two. For scent, add a drop of an essential oil, preferably floral; rose is gorgeous and the jasmine absolutely divine…

Shimmer: I love loose shimmer, both in make-up and on skin. I have some different hues of gold, copper and bronze. Into the same base-cream as for the foundation, we mixed sunny gold with bronze to get the desired hue of shimmer. Quite a bit of powder is needed to create a strong enough shimmer in the cream. We added a bit of D-panthenol for extra moisturisation.

Easy, cheap and fun. Like a kinder-egg 🙂
