Homemade Cosmetics vs Commercial Cosmetics
Left: Photo was taken a few weeks ago; Right: Photo was taken 2 years ago

The other day I was going through my Facebook profile pics, and I came across this old picture. Ironically, I was also wearing the same dress, and going out for my birthday, but the difference is in the makeup. In the most recent pic, I used my cacao powder foundation and rice flour setting powder, and in the older picture, I used some foundation I got from the drugstore. While my technique definitely has gotten better (it's apparent lining my lips with lip liner has been a great addition to my routine), the foundation made me very red and shiny. My face looked very plastic as well. At the time, I really loved my look, but it's no surprise I decided to stop wasting my money at Target, Sephora, Walmart, and Mac when it came to foundation.

I know I write a lot about natural and homemade cosmetics, and of course everything doesn't work for everyone, but if this isn't a great comparison, I don't know what is! Like really, this is just night and day. I used cacao powder and flour flour powder in my profile pic over to the right, and again, you can just see how it matches my skin color so much better. 

So if you want to try it, cacao powder is easy to find at Amazon, and you can also find rice powder, but make sure you get the really fine powder.

Got a question or just want to say hi? You can connect with me on my social networks!
