  1. Gather ingredients

    In order to make your own natural makeup, you will need to gather arrowroot powder or cornstarch, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, an old container and a brush. This will yield a powder. If you would like to make a compact, also get vodka or an essential oil.

  2. Begin making color

    Start with a base of the arrowroot powder or cornstarch. The amount you use will be slightly less than the amount of powder you end up with. Slowly add in cocoa powder and cinnamon until you get a color close to your skin tone. When you are close, test a small amount on your skin and look at it in different lights.

  3. Place in container

    If you want a powder, all you have left to do is put the mix in a container. If you would like the consistency to be thicker, such as in a compact, add a few drops of essential oil or vodka to the powder and press into an old compact container.
