Translucent Face Powder DIY Recipe

DIY Translucent Face Powder Recipe
I got the chance to share one of my favorite DIY beauty secrets with the very awesome Aquila Style magazine! I’ve been using this homemade translucent face powder myself for a while now and love just how simple it can all be. I still have my favorite foundations and make-up that I use but, when it comes to reducing our exposure to chemicals and toxins, a recipe like this is a great way to start. And unlike most powders, this homemade version actually nourishes your skin. Plus, it kind of smells like chocolate!

Here’s the thing: when you see just how easy it is to make your own skincare products and how well they work, you’ll be less impressed the next time you walk into a shop and are bombarded with a million face powders to buy and clutter up your home. With the  money you save, you can invest in the brands that are doing really great things, that you’re happy to support! In the meantime, have fun making your own products at home. It’s my favorite way to unwind and spend time doing something that is positive, healthy and good.

I hope that you’ll pop over to Aquila Style to get the face powder recipe and try it out for yourself!

    Hi Militza,

    did you repurpose a loose powder container to store this Translucent Face Powder?

    Btw, is Arrowroot Starch/Flour identical to Arrowroot powder?

      Hi Xian Hui! I did repurpose a container – but I didn’t have a proper powder container – so what I do with this one, is turn the jar upside down and back around. then tap on the lid before opening it – and whatever is stuck on the lid, I dab my brush on there so I don’t pick up too much excess powder…

      Yup, arrowroot starch, flour, powder – it’s all the same. I find in cold storage and brownrice paradise – it’s by the brand Bob’s Mill – looks like this:

      or you can try iherb and search there for it (any brand is fine):

      (which, if you buy under this link – I’m an affiliate so you get a bit of a discount too!)

    Wow, thanks for the quick reply!

    Indeed, I have went to iherb and found Bob’s Mill. But Im thinking what to do with the excess flour!

    And where to get a container……

      No worries! You’ve caught me at a good time! You can use arrowroot for any recipe that that calls for cornstarch – it’s a thickening agent used to make sauces and stews. Some people have allergies or sensitivities to corn, so this is a good alternative to cornstarch – and it’s also GMO-free. A lot of bakers prefer arrowroot over cornstarch because it has no flavour and give a glossy finish to the food.

      For body recipes – you can use arrowroot as a body powder, for kids it’s a great alternative to talcum powder. Or you can use it as a deodorant, mixed with baking soda (powder the baking soda in a blender/grinder) and coconut oil… lots of fun stuff.

      Right, now I’m off to cook dinner! Let me know how you get on with the recipes :)

    Now I’m really curious about the recipe. Though I don’t have a grinder. Is it possible to share it here?
