I found this recipe and thought I'd share it.  I just copied the good stuff and not rest of the blog!


Oat Silk Foundation

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup plain quick-cut oats
  • food processor or blender
  • fine sieve

Oats have been treasured by great beauties for ages, because oat nourishes the skin with important plant protein & heals blemishes that arise as the body, in its infinite natural wisdom, pushes impurities safely away from the spine & viscera to the great beyond outside of the body through the skin.

Oat Silk Foundation heals the skin while it imparts a polished, soft even tone to the skin.

Directions

  • Put your oats into the food processor or blender.
  • Grind for 60 seconds.
  • Sift through the fine sieve, setting aside the coarser bits left in your sieve.
  • Repeat these steps twice more.
  • Pour your fine Oat Silk Foundation into a small glass pot with a tightly-fitted lid, cap it, & store it in the refrigerator or another cool, dark, dry place. This will keep well for up to 5 days in less humid climes.

You can use the coarser leavings in a reusable muslin tea bag, along with some coarse sea salt & lavender or chammomile blossoms as a bath tea that heals, purifies, & clarifies the skin. For now, just put them in a lidded, small glass pot & cap it tightly & store it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight until you are ready for your ceremonial soak.

You can enjoy your Oat Silk Foundation in a variety of ways:

  • You can add it to your regular powdered foundation.
  • You can use it alone.
  • You can add pigmentation to it, using a high-quality, responsibly made, cruelty-free product from MineralFace FX. (As a natural beauty educator & expert, this is the only beauty company that I will gladly endorse, because of their client care, green commitment, business model & philosophy, & truly natural, gorgeous offerings!)
  • If you haven't a sensitivity to spices, you can color your product with small quantities of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, cocoa, coffee, turmeric, paprika or any other spice that strikes your fancy.
  • You can color your product with professional gel icing colorant, which is a tricky business, but can be done with patience & a little time. Try it in the food processor or blender for best results. Be sure to use your gel pots only for cosmetic coloration!

Application

  • Dip a kabuki brush into your Oat Silk Foundation.
  • Tap lightly to release messy excess product.
  • Dust lightly over the entire face, jawline, blending down the length of the neck.

Beautiful Blush & Beautiful Bronzer

These are so simple to prepare that the only thing to trump that benefit will be the fabulous, natural, radiant glow that you'll enjoy from this product set.

Beautiful Bronzer, made with ground cinnamon, can also be brushed along the temples, the browbone, along the length of the nose & the tip of the chin, for a fetching sun-kissed glow with rosy undertones. Cinnamon excites circulation, so it naturally encourages your perfect, natural blushing tone. Your look will be earthy-sexy, warm & sunny, with a faint-but-unforgettable scent that will linger in hearts & minds for a lifetime.

Beautiful Blush, made with beet root powder, gives a delicate, elegant, sweet, soft flush to the skin. Applied lightly & expertly, this blush can give you a memorable everyday look that rivals the best custom-blended blush on the market today. Your look will be "city sexy", easy & unique, leaving others with a sense of your impeccable innate personal style.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. Oat Silk Foundation
  • ½ tsp. beet root powder or ground cinnamon
  • food processor or blender
  • fine sieve

Directions

  • Place your Oat Silk Foundation & either beet root powder or ground cinnamon into the food processor/blender.
  • Blend for 30 seconds.
  • Sift through the fine sieve, setting aside the coarser leavings for your compost heap.
  • Repeat these steps twice more.
  • Bottle your resulting product in a glass or plastic, tightly-lidded container & store in the refrigerator or another dry, dark, cool place.

This will keep well for 5-7 days in less humid climes.

Application

For a youthful, sun-strewn, countryside or coastal look with your product:

  • Dip a blusher brush into your product.
  • Tap lightly to release messy excess product.
  • Apply lightly over the entire cheek, from apple to contour & in (toward the nose) the full length & breadth of the cheekbone. Go lightly, sweet ones, for a softly flushed ~ & not florid ~ look!

For a casually sophisticated, naturally sculpted look:

  • Dip a blusher brush into your product.
  • Tap lightly to release messy excess product.
  • Making a "kissy face", lightly draw the brush underneath the cheekbone, from earlobe halfway to the nose.
  • Gently blend the product up the hollow of the cheekbone to the crest, using light-as-a-feather strokes.
