HOW TO STAY NATURALLY SHINE-FREE ALL DAY LONG



shine free diy loose powder for dark girls1



I have combination skin, which means my T-Zone area (forehead and nose and chin) is super oily, leaving the rest of my face rather dry. For the past couple of years, I have struggled with finding the perfect foundation that isn’t greasy nor too matte on my skin. Even though I am not a fan of my face looking shiny, I am not a fan of my face looking cakey either. I am simply obsessed with my skin looking dewy and healthy without shine. So as I continue my minimalist journey to use less beauty products on my skin, I have been lucky enough to stumble upon the perfect foundation combo for me…all thanks to key items from my pantry. How I stay shine-free all day long is simply by using both Bare Minerals Matte Loose Foundation SPF15 with my DIY Loose Oil Absorbing Powder. And the best part? I made this DIY Loose Oil Absorbing Powder with 3 simple ingredients from my pantry:

Ingredients:

Arrowhead Powder : This is the base, which is super fine, silky and smooth on skin. The amazing thing about arrowhead powder is not only is it healthy for your skin, it has incredibly oil and moisture absorbing properties, making it perfect for keeping skin matte all day long

Raw Cocoa Powder: This powerful super food is jammed packed with antioxidants, helping to prevent against premature signs of aging

Turmeric: Known for it’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties, this spice helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles,blemishes while brightening skin

Directions: (Caution:This has only been tested on my dark chocolate skin:) You will need to adjust recipe until you find what works best for your skin)

  1. Place 2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder in a small mortar
  2. Add slowly 1 tablespoon of raw cocoa powder and 1/2 tablespoon of turmeric until I got my desired tone
  3. Completely blend all ingredients together with a pestle and pour into a loose powder sifter for easy application

And that’s it folks. Easy, beautiful, shine-free me :)

I absolutely love this DIY Loose Oil Absorbing Powder. Using arrowhead powder as a base makes this powder ultra-fine and super transparent. And when I apply this DIY Loose Powder over my Bare Minerals Loose Matte Foundation, it acts as a silky smooth veil to give me the perfect matte yet dewy finish.
