Instructions:

  1. Combine arrowroot powder with lotion base and whisk until smooth.
  2. Stir in sweet almond oil. You can use the entire arrowroot-lotion-oil mixture to make one color or separate it into smaller containers to make a variety of colors. (The lip balm tins or plastic jars work nicely).
  3. Combine pigment powder with arrowroot-lotion-oil mixture in each container, adding ⅛ tsp of pigment powder at a time. Stir well and add more pigment powder as needed to create the desired color(s).

To Use:

        • As with any new product, always perform a patch test first before applying to face.
        • Apply using makeup sponges or brushes, or a cotton swab.
        • To remove, use makeup remover wipes.

Safety Information:

        • Pigment powders are safe and non-toxic, and intended for use in soap and cosmetic products. With the exception of a few colors, all are safe and approved in the US for eye, lip and skin cosmetics.
        • Not approved for lips: lavender, orchid, cobalt blue, teal green, woodland green.
        • Although face paint is approved for eye cosmetics, like any makeup it is best to avoid direct contact with eyes.

Shelf Life and Storage Information:

Store in the refrigerator for best results. Face paint should last 3-6 months.
