    Make Your Own DIY Foundation Cream, DIY Tinted Moisturiser & DIY Concealer


    *The zinc oxide in this recipe is not intended for use as a sunscreen but to add texture and thickness to the mix only.


    Foundation cream:

    1. Add the cream, the mineral foundation powder and the non nano zinc oxide (if using) into a small bowl.
    2. Using the back of a spoon, blend together thoroughly until all lumps and clumps are completely removed. You should end up with a flawless mix of smooth paste.
    3. Add more mineral foundation powder for a darker colour, mix colours to suit your own skin tone or add a little more of the unscented cream if the consistency is too thick. Test the colour and texture on the inside of your arm as you go and work from there. The beauty of this recipe is you can completely custom design your desired texture and colour.
    4. Store the DIY foundation cream in a small container with sealed lid.

    Tinted moisturiser: If you prefer more of a tinted moisturiser consistency, leave out the zinc oxide.

    Concealer: If you would like to make a concealer, add less cream.

    How To Use

    Use sparingly! Apply the DIY foundation cream, concealer or tinted moisturiser to dry and clean skin as normal using your clean fingers or a makeup sponge.

    The finish is lovely, smooth and non-greasy. You can apply a little sunscreen onto your face beforehand if desired.

    Brush over lightly with some foundation powder if required.

    Suitable for sensitive skin and daily use.

    Store in a cool dry area out of sunlight.

    Use within 6 months.

    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or a commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
