Melt the shea butter, argan, or jojoba oil and emulsifying wax in a double boiler, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and add the aloe and witch hazel, whisking vigorously until smooth.
Let cool completely. The fridge speeds up the process.
Tinting Your Face Lotion
Mix the lotion (either homemade OR store bought) and the colors to get the desired shade. Start with a tiny amount of each color powder and slowly work up to get your desired shade. You'll want to use either cocoa powder and mica OR mineral makeup, not both. I started with ¼ tsp each of cocoa powder and mica, then added 1/8 tsp more at a time until it matched my skin tone.
This will look darker in the jar than it does on skin. To get your perfect shade add a little more color at a time and test the color on your inner arm.
Store in an air-tight container and use daily as desired for a smoothing/polishing natural tinted lotion.
If using pre-made lotion, this will have the shelf life of the lotion you are using. If using homemade, it will last up to a month (the reason I make small batches).
