I have ventured into mineral makeup and am hooked. I was using a powder type foundation that I make totally from scratch (see a couple of my other posts if you would like more info), but I found that it dried my skin too much by pulling oils out of my skin, so I started mixing up a very basic cream type foundation. I mix my powder base with olive oil and/or grapeseed oil, depending on my skin at the time, and also add some anti-chafing powder gel, which is silicone based, for feel. Monistat Soothing Care Powder Gel - makeup artists' secret, it works great as a primer lol. (ingredients for this are: Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Trisiloxane) The problem I've found is that while I love the adjustable coverage factor, and the way it feels, it doesn't stay put as well as I'd like it to. Rubs off on my fingers, clothing, etc... ick. What could I add (preferably something that won't involve oil/water phases and cooking stuff - I'm not there yet!) to give it some adhesion? The powder base is very simple: cornstarch, kaolin clay, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, and a tiny bit of sericite mica for shimmer. That's it. If I absolutely have to start cooking I guess I could go there, I just don't feel ready to do that yet.
