So I’m dabbling a little more into make-up these days and came across blush that I received in a kit with some free stuff. I don’t wear blush…ever never have so I did not even know the rules for applying it other than apply to the apples of your cheeks?! So that’s what I did, even though my method was a little questionable I must say that it did brighten my cheeks and made them look a little rosy. Overall a little bit of blush made my face look more youthful and fresh. It really defined the area between my eyes and cheeks which I kinda liked. The blush I used was a mineral blush which is supposed to be better for your skin since most cosmetics are filled with toxins and horrible things. I came across this amazing article and recipe from the Wellness Mama on how to make your own natural blush using natural herbs, I have not tried it yet but what’s not to love about that!
Natural Blush Make-up Recipe
Simple homemade makeup without the preservatives and toxins of conventional makeup. Recipe provided by Wellness Mama
Author: Wellness Mama
Recipe type: Beauty
- ½ tsp arrowroot (+ more if needed)
- ½ tsp cocoa powder (+more if needed)
- ½ tsp Hibiscus powder (+more if needed)
- As with any homemade make-up recipe, the amounts vary by person. You’ll have to experiment with quantities of each ingredient to find the shade that works for you. Always start with a base of about ½ tsp of arrowroot and darken as needed, testing on my inner arm as I go.
- When you get your desired shade, store in a small jar or old makeup shaker and use as needed
Natural looking Make-Up?

I have recently started wearing make-up again, I’m finding that all of the options out there for make-up are a little overwhelming. Back in the day I use to wear my mother’s (Fashion Fair) foundation even tho it was SUPER THICK, messy it got on everything) not to mention it was the wrong color!! I don’t like feeling like I have on make-up when I wear it. I prefer to have healthy, clear good looking skin above all, I’m just looking to have a more polished look! I want to get out of my comfort zone a little and try something new! I don’t believe there is anything really “Natural” about make-up, but you can wear natural looking make-up…I don’t want to put a bunch of garbage on my face ya know!!! So far I’m digging True Match by L’OREAL (blendable Make-up) and Bare Escentuals mineral veil. I like the fact that the true match blends to my skin tone perfectly I use N8 Cappuccino it’s like I’m not even wearing it (love that!) Mineral Veil it takes the place of your old translucent compact powder It’s a nice finishing touch that keeps the shine away!
