Here’s How to Make Your Own Mineral Make Up Foundation

Ever fancied created your own mineral make up? Well now you can, and it’s way easier than I ever expected. Zinc oxide as a base will create makeup very similar to store bought mineral makeup and adding mica powder will give skin a very natural looking glow.

Start with a base of arrowroot powder or corn starch and zinc oxide and then slowly add in cocoa powder and cinnamon powder until you get a shade close to your skin tone. You can then store in a clean, old powder container and use a brush to apply. I love adding gold mica powder to make my skin look glowing and radiant.


  • 2 tablespoons zinc oxide
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon gold mica dust
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp of desired natural clay powder
  • up to 1 teaspoon finely ground cocoa powder


  1. Mix all ingredients to get desired colour and coverage.
  2. Colored mica powders, natural clays and cocoa powder will give color. Start slowly, testing on inner-arm as you go to find your shade.
  3. Store in a small glass jar with a lid.
