How To Make Natural Blusher!

Making your own natural makeup is a beautiful way to feel good about what you’re putting on your skin, and this recipe only has a few ingredients.

All you really need is some beet root powder, but you can customise your shade using some other natural ingredients, as well.

To make beet root powder, first boil or bake a few beets, then peel them, cut them into thin strips, and dehydrate them using an oven or a dehydrator. If you use an oven, you’ll want to keep it at 140 degrees, with the door propped open to avoid moisture buildup. After 8-10 hours, they should be fully dehydrated. To turn them into a powder, put them in a food processor until you have a fine powder.

Or  if like me you are a little lazy I opted to purchase beet root powder instead. You should be able to find some at your health food store (Holland and Barret for me!) but you can certainly purchase it online if not.

To customise your shade, you can add arrowroot powder to lighten it, (baking soda the non natural route though!) cocoa powder to darken it, and ground ginger to add a little shimmer! Play around with different shades until you find what works best for you. I personally love bright pink blush, so I like using beet root powder in its pure form.

Pop in in a jar and voilà!


  1. Oh, this is so cool! <3 I always prefer natural or DIY makeup because it's better for your skin. I'll definitely try this; thank you for sharing!


  2. SUCH a good idea, beetroot is literaly the best multi tasker, health food AND beauty and something I would have never thought of. Because my skin is bad I am definitely conscious what I put onto it so don't want the products to be filled with crap xx

    1. Yea I have to say it lasts for ages too!

  3. This is such a great idea! I much prefer using natural products, and you can't get anymore natural than this - gonna have to give it a go!
