My face with the rice flour and cacoa powder mix
My foundation mix consists of 1/2 rice flour and 1/2 cacao powder. I find that the rice powder is actually transparent on my skin and can be used alone. Adding the cacao powder gives a hint of color and blurs imperfections (doesn't get rid of them completely, but it does make my skin look even). Depending on your complexion, you may want to adjust the ratio - less cacao powder if you are lighter, and more cacao powder if you are darker.
There are many benefits to using rice flour and cacao powder on the skin. Unlike commercial makeup, you will find that it leaves your face healthier and healthier after each use.
