Now you need to work on the broken cosmetic pieces. Put a few ‘earth toned’ pieces of broken makeup in a second mixing bowl.
Ground the makeup pieces to a fine powder by pulverising them with the back of a spoon. Continue adding and pulverising makeup pieces until the colour matches your skin tone or is a touch lighter than your skin tone. If you have a small marble mortar and pestle at your disposal, you can pulverise the broken makeup pieces finer and faster.
Add the grounded makeup to the bowl of cornstarch. Thoroughly mix the contents together. Keep mixing until you can not differentiate between cornstarch and grounded ‘earth toned’ makeup. When you are done mixing, your homemade face powder is ready. Pour it into a container for future use.
