DIY Mineral Veil

Ever gone to the BareMinerals stand in the mall, or in Sephora, and picked up a little jar of mineral veil and almost peed your pants because it was way too much $$??

Well, if you are like me then you don't have tons of money to spare, but you care about your skin and you also want to look good.

Many people will tell you to look at the back of really any mineral face powder and you will realize that mostly what is in it is cornstarch. Sure, for very cheap you could fill up an empty makeup jar with cornstarch and see if it works well for you. But, I have done a lot of research, and what is much better to use on your face is actually Arrowroot starch/powder. It will melt better into your skin and not leave so much of a white shadow on your face like cornstarch will. It is also better for your skin and better at absorbing oil.

Tonight I will be doing a post that is all about herbs and minerals that are good for your skin and very easy to get your hands on. Making your own high-end face powder is so easy to do you will not believe it, and it ends up costing you much less in the long-run.You could be making your own face powder very soon. Stay tuned to find out how! The end result looks like this:
