I couldn’t be more excited about this recipe for my All Natural Homemade Blush With Dried Raspberries! I have been experimenting a lot lately with different homemade beauty products and this blush turned out exactly how I had hoped it would so I simply had to share it with you!
If you have never made any beauty products before, don’t fret. This blush is so easy to make, you’ll be surprised (and possibly hooked on making your own beauty products – I know I am!!)
This blush is made out of two ingredients: Freeze dried raspberries and Arrowroot Starch. The latter is easy enough to find; check your local health food store or order online. As for the freeze dried raspberries; I usually buy them at Trader Joe’s. Best, most reliable source for sure! You can even find them online these days in case you don’t have the convenience of having a source close by.
To make this blush, you only need one piece of equipment: A coffee grinder. If you do not have a coffee grinder, use your food processor. I prefer a coffee grinder, though, as my food processor (which is a fairly cheap model) didn’t do a great job; the raspberry seeds were still visible – ideally, they are so fine you won’t notice). You may have better luck with your food processor, though!
- Place freeze dried raspberries into a coffee grinder and process until you have a fine powder. Make sure raspberry seeds are no longer visible - it may take up to 3 minutes of grinding; stop occasionally and brush off the sides (or shake the grinder, if you have a small, handy model).
- In a small bowl, mix raspberry powder with arrowroot starch: start by adding one teaspoon of arrowroot starch and test the shade using a powder brush; if the color is too intense, add more arrowroot starch until you have the desired color. Store in an airtight container.
