Clean Makeup: Easy Translucent Powder
Confused 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 translucent finishing powder recipe a try! You’ll be amazed by how well it really works!
This natural translucent finishing powder recipe 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 natural translucent finishing powder recipe is both the simplicity and the use of flower and botanical powders from Mountain Rose Herbs. 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.

I love that you make your own beauty supplies. It’s scary the things that are put into brand products that people don’t even know about. I’ve only begun to scratch the surface on finding out, too.
Many thanks for your post!
