It's so easy to make your own DIY Foundation! Learn how to make homemade foundation powder and liquid foundation with these simple recipes!
Finding completely natural, affordable makeup can be a real challenge. I am still looking for the perfect natural makeup that doesn't break the bank.
That's why I love easy, homemade makeup recipes so much!
There are so many reasons to use clean makeup or make your own. The ingredients in store bought makeup can have a laundry list of side effects. You can learn more about that here.
But if you've been wondering how to make DIY foundation at home, we're going to talk about that today!
How to Make DIY Foundation
When I started digging into the topic of homemade foundation recipes, I found a lot of similarities in the recipes.
One of the main questions I would ask is, are you looking for full coverage or just a light coverage?
If you are struggling with redness or breakouts, a homemade foundation powder may not give you the coverage you're looking for.
If you are just looking for something with light coverage for every day wear, a DIY foundation powder might be just what you're looking for.
How to Make Foundation Powder
There are definitely other ingredients you can include but they are not necessary. I am sharing a few really great homemade foundation powder recipes!
How to Make DIY Liquid Foundation
Making a DIY liquid foundation from scratch is definitely a little more involved that making a foundation powder.
This can involve melting down butters, beeswax and carrier oils to create a base for your tint.
Next, you can add zinc oxide for sun protection and cocoa or cacao powder for tint.
I have included multiple DIY Liquid Foundation Recipes for your to choose from!
You can choose the recipe that you have the ingredients for already and whip up some all natural foundation!
Have some fun experimenting and come back and tell me your favorite!!
