I have spent years developing some awesome organic makeup recipes and have a lot of women tell me it is the best makeup they have ever tried.

Making mineral makeup is very simple with the right recipes. If you can make cookies, you can make the best mineral makeup. You will also save a ton of money. Make one jar for under $2.00.

Below are the best mineral makeup recipes for very light, light yellow and light pink. All of the ingredients used in the recipes can be purchased at www.pvsoap.com. You can also buy the jars there.

How to Customize Your Best Mineral Makeup Foundation

  • If the color is too dark for you add more zinc oxide.
  • If the color is too yellow add more red in very small quantities.
  • If the color is too pink add more yellow in very small quantities.
  • If the color is too light add more brown iron oxide in very small quantities.
  • If you would prefer a sparkle instead of matte, use mica pearl flake instead of serecite mica.
  • Each recipe should make 7-10 jars or makeup depending on the recipe.

Recipe for Light Brown Foundation

Titanium dioxide 6 tsp

Zinc oxide 3 tsp

Kaolin clay 6 tsp

Brown iron oxide 1 TBS

Deep red iron oxide 0 tsp

Yellow iron oxide 3 TBS

Serecite mica 3 tsp

Redmond Clay 1 TBS

Recipe for Medium Light Brown Foundation

Titanium dioxide 4 tsp

Zinc oxide 3 tsp

Kaolin clay 6 tsp

Brown iron oxide 3 1/2 tsp

Deep red iron oxide 0 tsp

Yellow iron oxide 10 tsp

Serecite mica 3tsp

Redmond Clay 1 TBS

Measure all ingredients except serecite mica together in a magic bullet or a container with a lid that can be shaken vigorously. I like to use a glass 12 oz or 16 oz jar with a lid. If you are using a magic bullet you will only have to blend for about 10 seconds.

Add the serecite mica and continue to blend or shake. Test a small amount of makeup on your face to see if the color is right. If it is off, adjust it accordingly. Scoop the mineral makeup into jars and it is ready to go!
