Homemade blush you can eat? Well, yes! And here's why: Cosmetics are a major source of exposure to toxins. The number of chemicals present in lipsticks, blush, and foundation (items many women use on a daily basis) is astounding. Finding natural options is getting easier, but many are rather expensive, putting them out of our reach some of the time. As a result, we may find ourselves using cheaper, less natural options more often than we'd like. Thankfully, there is another frugal choice: making your own. DIY makeup is generally less expensive than natural store-bought options, especially when items can be made with ingredients you already have on hand. Today I want to show you how to make natural blush with freeze-dried berries
. All of the ingredients are natural, so you could actually eat it! Not that you'd want to, but it's nice to know you could, right? ;) If you don't already have WFN's Mixed Berry Powder in your pantry, you should get some! It contains strawberries, blueberries, boysenberries, raspberries, cranberries, and blackberries and can be used to make delicious treats like gummies, coconut butter berry bites
, and jello
. The reddish-pink shade of berry powder makes it perfect for use in homemade blush. Since it's only fruit, there's no need to worry about toxins or chemicals.
How To Make Natural Blush With Freeze-Dried Berries
Instructions: Use a mortar and pestle to grind the berry powder to a finer consistency. Sift the berry powder through a fine mesh sieve. Next, mix the berry powder and arrowroot powder in a small bowl. For a lighter color, add more arrowroot. To create a darker shade add 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder. To create brighter shade, add more berry powder or incorporate 1/4 teaspoon beet powder.
