You know, actually I like DIY stuff. I'm pretty much inspired after I've read some tutorials and I think it looks like fun to try it out :) So I tried to create DIY loose powder. It's super easy to do and it can be done in just minutes!


Before I start, let me tell you that there is no exact measurement or appropriate amount for the ingredients. It's according to one's preference :)

The Ingredients.
Because my skin has brown undertone, so I'm using these ingredients.

How to?
1. Sift the corn powder, pure cocoa powder and turmeric powder in 3 different plates.
2. Mix the corn powder first with a pinch of turmeric powder, followed by pure cocoa powder (to tint the powder). You can add more or less pure cocoa powder to build colour close to your skin tone. It takes a few tries of mixing!
4. Mix everything well. Put the mixing into a cleaned loose powder container. Use a brush to apply. Voila!
- Even corn starch works to eliminate oiliness, the texture is a bit thicker and you may find it a bit coarse to the skin. Thus, it would be good if you could find and use arrowroot powder instead. The texture is smoother and blended with the skin than corn starch. But because I couldn't find arrowroot powder here *sigh*
- You can add ground cinnamon powder, essential oil if you want.
- If you have pinkish tone, you use beet powder instead of pure cocoa powder.
# If you want to make it a compact, use a few drops of rubbing alcohol. Press it down with a tissue on top to remove the excess. Leave it in the fridge for a few hours. This will make it hard like a regular compact.

Additional DIY: Bronzer Powder (No pic though)
1. Sift pure cocoa powder, a pinch of turmeric powder and ground cinnamon powder.
2. Mix everything well until you reach your desired colour. Put the mixing into a cleaned loose powder container. Use a brush to apply. Voila!
3. You can make it a compact version following the note #.

I try it and so far I'm OK with the coverage and performance. It definitely gives me shine-free finish. Just 1-2 layers are enough. However, one thing I did find annoying is the powder would stick to my eyelashes if I brush it on my eyelids.

Try it if you like. Happy "A no Arashi"! :D

Yup! It smells good too because of the cocoa powder :) You can try arrowroot powder if you can find it. It works better for the skin.

Just don't expect much it works like the one sold on the store, OK? Tell me what you think of after the experiment! xD

I think, what I need most from powder is the shine-free! Oily face isnt nice to looka at and not nice to touch (by my own XDD).

E? 2layers? Effective?
I only ever do 1layers.
Since am yellowish-white, if I wear white powder it'll make my face looks like kabuki actor. The reason I never wear foundation.

Well, you can layer just 1 if you want to. If you don't use foundation you must have a nice skin~ :P

Unfortunately I still have acne too now and then.

Well, this is just an advice. It's up to you to follow it or not but I want to share~

Try not to cleaning your face with your usual cleanse. Stop like for a week. Wipe off make up, cleanse and moisturise your skin by using olive oil. Once every 2 day, apply warm home-based salt water to exfoliate dead skin cells. Let it dry and then wash it off.
