Please note: The course doesn’t include the ingredients as presented in the video. We have separated the course into a tutorial online course with an option of buying the ingredients. This allows for students who already have most of the ingredients to be able to do the course at a cheaper rate than before.
Let Jan Benham show you healthy alternatives to the toxic chemicals that are present in most mainstream cosmetics. Why risk long term health problems or allow these chemicals to dry and damage your skin? In comparison, mineral makeup nourishes your skin whilst enhancing your looks.
In this fun but practical course, you’ll learn how to make your own natural foundation, blushers and eye shadows. Imagine the pleasure of wearing makeup crafted specifically to enhance your features. Imagine the satisfaction of making your cosmetics. Imagine the security of knowing you’re applying healthy substances on your skin.

The contents of the cosmetic making courses are clear and aimed at immediate practice, thus, they contain a theoretical base, which allows students to put into practice the knowledge acquired.

Past Review on this course
This is a testimonial to Jan Benham to express my personal gratitude and thanks for her wonderful E-course in Mineral Makeup.
Being a qualified Aromatherapist in Australia, I have a keen interest in learning new techniques and anything to do with making beautiful things naturally for the face and body.
Some months ago I read an article in an the English Aromatherapy Association newsletter regarding Jan’s courses online in Mineral Makeup and beauty products and I contacted her and arranged to take part in the Mineral Makeup E-course.
Upon further reading and videos about Jan via the Internet, I discovered that she is an extremely talented and accomplished lady in the beautiful and natural world of Aromatherapy, Teaching and Cosmetic making.
Jan forwarded her manuals by email and posted the ingredients for the E-course, I couldn’t wait to get started. I found the manuals very easy to follow and self-explanatory; however when I needed to query something, Jan answered my every email straight away and also gave me comprehensive advice and tips whilst I worked my way through the course.
I have now completed Jan’s Mineral Makeup Course and I loved every minute. I still cannot believe the absolute professional and beautiful cosmetic products I can now make myself – eye and lip pencils, lipsticks and glosses, mineral powder bases, eye shadows, blushers and mascara – I can mix any colour I choose using the natural colourants from the earth of oxides and micas. I do not ever have to buy makeup again. Over the years I have used the best and most expensive brands in makeup and I can honestly say that I find this mineral makeup surpasses anything I have ever used – the mineral powder base is superb, the coverage is excellent, so light and natural and the best thing is that I make it all ‘myself’ in my kitchen.
I cannot thank this very gracious lady enough and I can honestly say this is the best online course I have ever taken part in.
