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.


You can get green clay from Amazon.
For a lighter DIY natural liquid foundation, use more oil. To darker the foundation, use less oil and more of the dry powder coloring ingredients of your choice.
Store the mixture in a jar with a firm-fitting lid, or allow to cool to room temperature and apply immediately.
