Super fun temporary hair colour!

Can also be used as a powder blush for the cheeks, and is quite a lovely warm pale pink colour!

This recipe came from research in the Toilet De Flora and Adbeker as well as historical documents that talked about how Marie Antoinette preferred her hair powders be made from crushed flower petals. In addition to the crushed rose petals, this recipe also has Iron oxide which will stain your cheeks or hair a lovely pink. It has a lovely natural rose scent to it.

This will wash out easily, but it is recommended because this is an original formula that you cover yourself well and if possible apply this in an easy to clean area, outside, or with tile, linoleum, or wood flooring, it is much like a powdered blush, in that if it gets on the floor or such , it will leave a pink or red mark which is easily able to be cleaned up and will wash out with soap and water. So care needs to be taken. This is why the recipients of the powder tended to cover their face with a large cone and wore a protective apron.

For hair application, this is best applied over your pomade with a large makeup brush. Apply hair powder first, before your makeup as you will need to wash your face after powdering.

Apply with a powder puff or a blush brush.

Apply the pomade first, then apply powder… or you can apply pomade first, then dress your hair and then apply powder (this is the best option if curls are involved)
