DIY Mineral Veil

I used to be obsessed with Bare Minerals makeup products for years, especially their mineral veil face powder.   Take a look at the ingredients, and you will be surprised. It was basically cornstarch with parabens (eek!) and iron oxides for color. Since then, I’ve been refilling the same powder container with my own mineral veil concoction, and it works EXACTLY the same (if not better) as the brand name powder. I still love Bare Minerals products, and they have now taken out the parabens, but I will stick with my own mineral veil, thank you. 


HEALTH TIP:  As with all powder makeup products, please do not inhale your makeup! Those tiny particles could enter the lungs, possibly leading to inflammation, scarring, and disease. When I use any kind of loose face powder, I hold my breath while tapping the excess powder off the brush and during application. Tap the brush away from you, and use only in a well-ventilated area.
