I hate paying $25 for mineral veil, but i love the stuff. I'm a cheapskate and not afraid to admit it.
Spoon some corn starch into your container, add baby powder. Mix. I used a chop stick. I never measure. I'd say maybe 3 parts corn starch to 1 part baby powder.
Add tinted face powder. I used a cheap bronzer, but any lose tinted powder is fine. This should be only slightly tinted. It's not for concealing, but for absorbing oils & holding your makeup in place.
Try to mix it up well and break down any clumps of corn starch. These will also break up when you get it on your brush and swirl in the lid.
Finished product. Enjoy! I found this idea on a blog where someone researched the ingredients in mineral makeup. Apparently corn starch is a key ingredient. Been using this powder and I love it!
