I am not sure if you remember this post or not, but I decided to try one of Cara's DIY's!

Mostly because I was running out of my translucent powder.

So, here is the "recipe"...

1 1/2 Tablespoons of cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon powdered foundation

Stir together and store in a clean, used powder container. 

I actually did two different ones... the top one is my tinted one and the bottom is just the cornstarch.

Fact: Makeup can last all day by using cornstarch as makeup protector. Mix it with a bit of foundation and your face stays dry and non greasy all day.

Both work great and saves me some big bucks! 

Thanks Cara!


  1. THANK YOU! I was out of my mineral veil and I was looking for something that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg! The cornstarch worked perfectly. I never knew!
