Homemade Face Power For Oily Skin – One Ingredient, Only 61 Cents!

- in Beauty, Recipes



I love makeup shopping, I really do. But I draw the line when someone wants me to buy a teeny tiny jar of translucent powder for $20.

Not when I can make it myself.

For 61 cents.

And yes, you read that correctly. Because this recipe only requires one inexpensive ingredient, you can make your own homemade face powder for a small fraction of the cost of buying it anywhere else.

If you have oily skin, then you know a good translucent powder is a must, especially when the weather is warm. It’s also perfect for setting makeup, and even for dusting under the arms (and other, ahem, sweaty places).


For something so simple as a translucent powder, store-bought versions can have some scary ingredients. I just want oil control, not polyisobutene or barium sulfate. Thanks… but no thanks.

Talc was a common ingredient for absorbent powders in the past, but health risks are making folks think twice about using this as a face powder (or baby powder for that matter).

I choose my ingredients carefully — sometimes it’s easier said than done. But this is one of those times it was effortless. I already keep arrowroot powder in my kitchen as a thickening agent. And I keep my essential oils on hand for DIY recipes and diffusing. So I actually did zero shopping for this recipe! I chose lavender and copaiba essential oils because they are both very soothing, calming, and restorative to the skin.


I admit, my arrowroot powder is slightly more coarse in texture than my standard store-bought translucent powder. However, it’s totally workable.

Like any powder, use just a little and tap the end of your brush on the counter first (upside down) — this helps you apply it evenly, so you don’t end up with a bunch of powder in one spot on your face. Layer if necessary, but a little goes a long way. It’s always better to start with less and add more. if needed.
