Sericite Mica:

Sericite Mica is the base of each of our DIY recipes. It diffuses the appearance of light, giving the skin a more airbrushed appearance. It absorbs oil and helps boost adhesion. It is also used to improve slip and dilute pigments. However, it often can be hard to find. I have used kaolin clay in it’s place however, it’s just not as effective.

DIY Mineral Blush DIY Mineral Bronzer**These recipes are what work for me.  I have pretty light skin so my recipes aren’t too pigmented.  That being said, I have to go really easy on the blush.  It looks light, but it is easy to get too much.  While mixing your ingredients, I would suggest you test your make up on your arm often and add 1/8 a tsp. at a time of your colors and micas.
