DIY Translucent Face Powder

Author: Militza Maury |


  • arrowroot powder this powder is made from dehydrated and ground arrowroot, which is known to have skin-smoothing effects. You can skip it if you can’t find it, but it does give your skin a more velvety feel
  • cornstarch absorbs excess oil, helping to give your skin a matte finish
  • cocoa powder has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to firm and renew your skin


  • Combine 1/2 cup of arrowroot powder and 1/4 cup of cornstarch in a mixing bowl
  • Add in the cocoa powder one tablespoon at a time until it reaches a shade similar to your own natural skin tone. This is a translucent powder, so try not to go too dark (use between 1 and 3 tablespoons)
  • Mix thoroughly, breaking up any large pieces with the back of a spoon


You may keep your powder for up to six months in sealable containers; remember to shake the mixture well each time you use it.
