Makeup DIY - Natural Translucent Finishing Powder RecipeConfused by makeup and cosmetic label ingredients? You’re not alone! If you’ve been looking for an all natural finishing powder but don’t want to pay big bucks for designer brands, then give my simple lightweight, natural homemade finishing powder recipe a try! It goes on similar to a translucent fair pressed powder to help mattify shine and give your makeup a final touch. Apply over makeup and foundation or brush on alone for a natural look that helps to give the appearance of a more even skin tone.

What I really love about this recipe is both the simplicity and the use of flower and botanical powders from Nature’s Garden. Chamomile flower powder is great for flaky skin and wrinkles and has long been prized for its soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits while lavender flower powder is also helpful in soothing irritated skin. Rosehip powder, which is derived from the fruit of wild roses, naturally contains high levels of vitamin C as well as vitamins E, A, and D and is prized in skincare for its antioxidants and anti-aging properties.
