How to Make Blush with Natural Ingredients
- Start with 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch or arrowroot powder, depending on how much blush you want to make. Add it to a small mixing bowl or directly to a food processor if you know you're going to have lumps that need to be smoothed out.
- Choose your shade from the list above (red/pink, brown or golden) and add one teaspoon at a time of one of the ingredients listed for the shade and stir well until you have the color you prefer. Test it on the back of your hand to get the right shade for your face.
- If it's lumpy at all, you'll want to run it through a blender or food processor.
- Place it into a small container with a lid. Something like a 4 ounce mason jar works great.
Where and How to Apply Blush
- Apply your DIY Natural Blush with a big soft makeup brush across the apple of your check upwards.
