I’ve been having a lot of fun re-creating different cosmetic products lately, and I’ve found that almost all of them start with some sort of combination of titanium dioxide (or some other ingredient that provides opacity), magnesium stearate (or something else that helps slip), and sericite mica (USA / Canada) (or something else that improves adhesion and aids in the appearance of the skin).
So, rather than whipping up tiny little batches of these ingredients every time I wanted to make something, I decided to make a larger batch and use it a few teaspoons at a time.
I’ll be publishing a few recipes in the next few weeks that call for a teaspoon or two of this base, so keep an eye out!
Cosmetic Powder Base
Blitz everything together in a coffee grinder. Store in a small mason jar for use in other cosmetic recipes. Makes 8 tsp cosmetic base.
