You got Cocoa on your FACE?

Yes Ma'am that is right. I am changing almost every thing we eat, products we use on our bodies, down to the ones we use to clean our house. All these chemicals just plain scare me.

Once again I am on one of my most favorite site.. PINTREST!!!  I just love that place..

I came across a few pins on how to make your own make-up.. I was intrigued so I read on and kept reading, and reading, and reading. So, I finally got up the courage to try on of the recipes..

Translucent powder.. This one didn't have a lot of different ingredients and the recipe was simply to follow..

Unsweetened baking Cocoa powder
Cornstarch
Clay


All these products I ordered through my "local" food co-op.  I wanted to make sure I wasn't putting any unnecessary chemicals on my face.



At first I was thinking this is not going to do well on my face at all. I kept going over the directions.

1 part this and 1 part that.. I was so confused... I didn't understand what that meant.. I e-mailed the lady that posted this on pintrest and she was so sweet. She told me that she couldn't tell me a specific part because I am making to fit my skin tone... Duh Arica!!!  I felt so unsmart at that moment.. but, gotta love Christine she was so understanding.

Okay so, 1 part of this and 1 part of that, and just a smidge of the other.  To dark, add another part of the this..

Perfect.. well it wasn't that quick it did take a little more time but, I got it just right.

 It may look a little dark here... That is only because of the lighting.


I made plenty.. I love the way it goes on.

I had my hubby take some before and after pictures,

I realize that I said I had my hubby take before pictures.. So here they are!!



 
Yep... I am in my Apron... I love my Aprons!!!!
