All-Natural Customizable Beetroot Blush

Author: Stephanie Gerber

Materials

  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot flour or cornstarch
  • Beetroot powder
  • Turmeric optional
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder optional

TOOLS

  • Measuring spoons
  • Small bowl
  • Spoon
  • 3- ounce 80-mL lidded jar
  • Blush brush

Instructions

  • Add the arrowroot flour or cornstarch to a bowl. (Cornstarch is more common, but may contain GMOs.)
  • Start with 1 tablespoon beetroot powder, then add more until you like the color. Equal parts beetroot and arrowroot will give a lighter blush, while a 2:1 beetroot-arrowroot ratio will give you a darker, more true pink. Experiment with mixing equal parts turmeric, beetroot, and arrowroot for a peach-colored blush, or add cocoa powder to darken the hue.
  • Mix the powders with a spoon to break up clumps, then transfer to a lidded jar and store in a dry place.
  • To use, just dip a brush into the powder, tap off the excess, and apply to the apples of your cheeks.
