DIY Natural Liquid Foundation Recipe #1


  • 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 pinch cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or cocoa powder or a combination of the three to get the shade that suits your skin tone
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 1 tbsp green clay optional, but will help conceal skin splotches and redness


  • Combine the cornstarch or arrowroot powder and green clay (if using) in a bowl, and stir thoroughly.
  • Stir in the coloring ingredients: ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, or cocoa powder.
  • Set aside the mixture.
  • Pour the coconut oil into a small pot or a double boiler and melt the oil. Stir constantly over low to medium heat to avoid scorching.
  • Stir in the vitamin E oil.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and pour into the bowl you sat aside.
  • Combine the ingredients thoroughly.


For a lighter DIY natural liquid foundation, use more oil. To darken the foundation, use less oil and more of the dry powder coloring ingredients of your choice until you get the desired shade and texture.
Store the mixture in a jar with a firm-fitting lid, or allow to cool to room temperature and apply immediately.
