Put fresh rose petals and some starch into a mortar. Use less starch at first, you can always add more later, if the blush should be too dark.

Grind the rose petals very fine.

Because of the fresh rose petals, the blush is moist and needs to be dried quickly in order to retain the pink color. Here I tried to dry the blush at room temperature and the blush turned brown.

Preheat your oven to 50°C/ 120°F. Then turn off the heat, and let the blush dry in the oven for about 2 hours.

I also tried to dry the rose petals first and then grind them in a mortar. But it’s not possible to get them as fine as fresh rose petals.

The blush has a lovely pink color, but it doesn’t give much color to the cheeks. Next time I’ll use more rose petals and less starch. The blush has a cold pink color, and I thought it’d just work for cool skin undertones. But unexpectedly it also looked good with my yellow skin tone. And the powdered blush works especially well as setting powder over my alkanet cream blush.
