                                         Recipe of the Month -  March, 2005




Makes approximately (3)-30 gram jars (3 oz)
Measure all ingredients

Ingredients/materials needed: 

Micronized Titanium Dioxide
Bismuth Oxychloride (optional)
Kaolin Clay (optional)
Zinc Oxide
Sericite Mica - Mat Finish
Magnesium Stearate
Yellow, Red & Brown Iron Oxide Pigments
Jojoba Oil
Vitamin E Oil
Essential Oil
Mortar & Pestle or
the Magic Bullet™
Sifter Jars
measuring spoons,
cosmetic brushes (large full brush for foundation)

Phase I
8 tsp  Micronized Titanium Dioxide
3 tsp  Bismuth Oxychloride (may substitute Sericite Mica or Kaolin Clay)
4 tsp  Zinc Oxide-Low Micron
1 tsp  Magnesium Stearate
1/2 - 1 tsp  Yellow Iron Oxide
1/16 tsp Brown Iron Oxide
Pinch of Red Iron Oxide

Phase II
1/4 tsp Jojoba Oil
5 drops Vitamin E Oil
4-8 drops any essential oil (we used Bergamot)

Phase III
1 tsp. Sericite Mica - Matt Finish

Mix the ingredients from Phase I in your mortar and pestle or Magic Bullet, blending well.  Slowly add the ingredients from Phase II to the mix.  Stir/blend until homogenous.  Last, add the Phase III ingredient if you need more or less to adjust the color tone.

Determining the correct color for you:
Change the tint by adding more of any of the iron oxides.  Add more titanium
dioxide, zinc oxide or sericite mica if you desire a lighter overall shade.
Make note of your additions/changes so that you can duplicate when necessary.

Transfer foundation powder into a 30 gr sifter jar for easy application with a large foundation brush.

We've found the Magic Bullet™ to work great and really blend all the colors without leaving any clumps.  The Magic Bullet can be purchased at local shops & Walgreen's Pharmacy.
