- Begin by sifting out large pieces of oats. Ensure that only fine, powder form oats are left behind
- Mix arrowroot powder and oats together in a bowl.
- Slowly add splice into the the mixture. Only add a little bit at a time. Mix well after each time. Add until desired shade is achieved. (May require some trial and error)
- Add a few drops of oil at a time into the mixture. Ensure to stir and mesh out lumps of powder as you mix. *Caution – Do not mix too much oil or you will end up with a mixture that is too moist. The end result should remain powder form.

How To Use:
- Like other foundations, we recommend storing the foundation in a short jar and applying it with a makeup brush. The foundation can last most of the day but will require additional touch-ups from time to time.
