Recipe Notes


Arrowroot Starch / Flour (or Cornstarch)
Cinnamon (Optional)
Nutmeg (Optional)


Start with 3 TB of Arrowroot or Cornstarch in a bowl.  Add one teaspoon at a time of cocoa until you get the desired color. You can keep the color light for a translucent finishing powder or make it darker for powdered makeup coverage.  Add a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to enhance the coloring.

Important:  Take time to quickly SIFT the ingredients together before placing in your storage container.  It really makes a difference in having a fine powder to apply on your face instead of a lumpy powder.
