  1. In a small bowl, start by adding the arrowroot powder (your base). For light, fair skin, add 1 tablespoon. For dark skin add 1 teaspoon.
  2. Slowly start adding in one OR a combination of cocoa powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg until you reach your desired tone.
  3. Make sure to only add a small amount at a time and mix well before you add anymore! You can always add more, but you cannot remove it once mixed!
  4. If you're looking for a more compact foundation, add a few drops of jojoba oil, olive oil, or almond oil, to the mixture and press it down into a compact.
  5. Dip a clean foundation brush into the mixture and tap off any excess. Apply all over face and re-apply if needed.

This powder foundation is great because it's super customization, won't clog your pores, and can even be used as a mattifying powder over a liquid foundation.
