I tried to make natural blusher with beetroot powder and rice starch.
Because the store-bought beetroot powder was a bit coarse, I mixed beetroot powder and water and filtered the solution through a paper tea filter. Then I added rice starch, let it dry and powdered it again in a mortar.
The powder blush looks quite pink …
… on my skin, however, it’s too white. Even after adding more beetroot dye, it’s too pale for my liking. And the blusher didn’t stick well to the skin.
Here you’ll find my recipe for rose petal blush which actually works!
