To create the blush start mixing the powders together. Start by mixing a small even amount of all the powders so you get a sense of what color it will create.

Add all three powders to the bowl. You can also skip any of them if you like the color without one. This project is totally up to you and completely customizable.

Add in more of the hibiscus and beet powder if you would like a more pinkish shade of blush.

Whisk a little more to incorporate all of them evenly. You can also use a food processor to get the powder even more fine (this is optional).

I've never made any sort of make-up so this project is going to be great.

I am most excited about this diy! Can't wait to try it

Where can I get a tiny little whisk like that?

Hi @dramameg02 - Look up Mini Whisk on Crate&Barrel. Doesn't look like they have it online anymore but you could try to find it in store or google it for something similar!

I can't see that the blush is leaving any color on my (fairly pale) skin. I'm going to run it through the food processor and see if it makes a difference.

I found a set of two tiny whisks at Fred's dollars store.

@sondra how did the food processor work for you? We love the super smooth texture after using the processor... you loose a bit of powder by running it through but we think it's worth it!
