What ingredients do I need?

Loose powder mineral blushers consist of two parts, the colour and the base.  The base makes the colour adhere to your skin.

For the base:

The blusher base is the same as used in the mineral foundation, so if you have already made a mineral foundation please go straight to the recipe and just use part of your left over base. If you haven’t already made a mineral foundation then you will need the following ingredients:

For the colour part:

How To Make A Loose Powder Mineral Blusher:

First the base:

This recipe makes 8g of mineral blusher base or approx. 5 ½ tsp. If you are making less to start with just store your spare left over base for when you want to make more blushers or correctors at a later date.

Sterilise your equipment and any tools that you are using by wiping them over with rubbing alcohol.

  • Put all of the blusher base ingredients into your grinder, put the cling film over the top and replace the lid. Grind for 1 minute.
  • Brush any powders that have stuck to the sides back into the grinder. Then grind again for 1 more minute. Your blusher base is ready.

Notes:

The above recipes are good basic blushers using iron oxides but many more shades of blushers can be created by using other matte coloured pigments or even coloured micas if you want to add a little sparkle to your cheeks.

Try mixing the matte coloured pigments together if you are looking for a particular shade. This is the beauty of making your own mineral cosmetics, you can create anything that you want.
