I am finally getting around to creating a foundation.
My first batch and for practice I made the Marie color blend, not my skin tone color a good 1/2 shades to dark and definitely to red for me.
My skintone is fair and almost medium-ish with my now fading tan. My undertone is neutral to slightly warm.
My second batch the color blend I did was 7/32 yellow oxide and 1/64 red oxide. Trying this powder on was much better, but maybe a little to pale for me.
I like wearing liquid foundation as oppose to powder, cause my skin is prone to flaky and dry patches.
I mixed a little of my second batch powder and equal argan oil. When I applied it I found it to be very skiddy and the color was very chalky it looked and felt like I was wearing a mineral sunscreen.
I am wondering if I should omit or lessen the amount of the Zinc Oxide and up the amount of titanium dioxide? Or is there another powder can I use?
My previous liquid foundation had Kaolin clay, would this be a good substitute or would it be to drying?
I searched Allantoin powder is a humectant would that work?
I’m surprised there aren’t more posts about this – actually it looks like this blog has been sleeping which is so sad. I also have major problemss getting that exact right shade for my face. I either end up lookng like a flashlight or an umpa lumpa!
