How To Make Your Own Pure Mineral Correctors

Correctors are used for well...correcting!

If you have blemishes, dark shadows under the eye or bruising, correctors will neutralise them and they work much better than concealers. They are applied before your mineral makeup and should be used sparingly.

There are normally 4 colour correctors which can help with different problems. They are green, apricot, yellow and lavender.

Green neutralises red - if you have any red blemishes, broken capillaries, rosacea or port stains etc, this is the corrector you will need.

Apricot neutralises blue - if you have any blue under eye shadows or blue bruising then you will probably want to try this one. This also brightens the eye when used just below.

Yellow neutralises purple - if you have under eye shadows or bruising that are more purple than blue then try this one.

Lavender neutralises yellow - if you have any yellow bruising to your skin this colour corrector will help.

Benefits of making your own:

  • Simple to make
  • Branded cosmetics are much more expensive, you can make better for a fraction of the cost
  • Branded cosmetics often contain undesirable ingredients
  • Learn to make mineral makeup and start your own business

What equipment do I need?

  • Coffee Grinder (keep for mineral makeup use only)
  • Cling film to stop any powders escaping from grinder
  • Measuring Spoons see recipes
  • Small brush for taking powder off of sides of grinder
  • Rubbing Alcohol for sterilising your equipment and tools plus some kitchen roll (rubbing alcohol is available in any chemist)
  • Protection for your work surface
  • Dusk Mask for grinding powders
  • Apron
  • Surgical or Nitrile gloves
  • Sifter Pot or Container of your choice

 What ingredients do I need?

For each of the 4 correctors, you will need 1 tsp of your mineral foundation base.

First Step:

Sterilise your equipment and any tools that you are using

Here are 4 Example Mineral Corrector Recipes:

Each recipe makes approximately 1 tsp of Mineral Corrector. If you would like more, then feel free to double the ingredients.

We have used our 0.05ml mini scoop in all of the recipes.

The following recipes are Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly.

Green Mineral Corrector

*Remember to wear a dust mask


  1. Put all ingredients into the coffee grinder, cover the top with cling film and grind ingredients together for 1 minute.
  2. Remove lid and cling film, brush any powders from the sides of the grinder.
  3. Replace cling film and lid and grind again for 1 more minute.
  4. Finished.

Note: For the Apricot, Yellow and Lavender Correctors follow the recipe above but replace the Chromium Oxide Green with the following:

Apricot Corrector

Yellow Corrector

Lavender Corrector


See whether your corrector is neutralising the problem, if not then add ½ mini scoops more of colour at a time, grinding/testing in between each addition, until you arrive at the correct colour intensity.

To Apply:

Dab in very small amounts to the problem area and blend well. For larger areas choose a suitable brush and apply blending as you go.
