The aesthetic and energetic power of crystals and minerals have been known and used for thousands of years! Ancient civilizations, like the Egyptians and the Chinese, have used gemstones in skincare since the dawn of recorded history.
Known as electro-stimulants, minerals in gemstones function as semi-conductors for your skin! This is essential to increasing cellular productivity, performance, repair and penetration the skin while leveraging the effects of any other ingredients.
You can infuse filtered water with gemstones, minerals and crystals. The elevated frequency emitted from gemstones and precious minerals helps direct energy to specific areas of need, constantly adapting to your skin under any condition, allowing for maximum performance and benefits.

Step One: Find your Ingredients and tools to use
Micronized Titanium Dioxide
Sericite Mica - Matte Finish
Yellow, Red & Brown Iron Oxide Pigments
Vitamin E Oil
Essential Oil (opt.) I like carrot seed oil for its skin-rejuvenative properties, or tea-tree oil as an excellent treatment for acne
Mortar & Pestle or small grinder
30g (1oz) Sifter Jars
Kabuki brush (large full brush for foundation)
Makes approximately (3)-30 gram jars (3 oz)
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients
In the mortar or grinder, combine:
8 tsp Micronized Titanium Dioxide
3 tsp Sericite Mica
4 tsp Zinc Oxide
1 tsp Magnesium Stearate
1/2 - 1 tsp Yellow Iron Oxide
1/16 tsp Brown Iron Oxide
Pinch of Red Iron Oxide
Take time smashing it up with your pestle/grinder. It won't seem like it's doing much at first, but slowly you'll start to see your color emerge. Continue smashing until it looks uniform.
Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients
Add the following to the mixture:
Smash again, making sure to distribute the liquids evenly. They'll appear to just get swallowed up by the minerals, but remember that they need to be worked around until you have a uniform mixture.
Now add 1 tsp. Sericite Mica for a nice matte finish.
TO TWEAK THE COLOR:
Change the tint by adding more of any of the iron oxides.
Add more titanium dioxide, zinc oxide or sericite mica if you desire a lighter overall shade.
Make note of your additions/changes so that you can duplicate when necessary.
Step Four: Transfer
This is the step to transfer your miracle mixture into a usable container!
Using a funnel, transfer foundation powder into a 30 gr sifter jar for easy application.
