Seed betel nut (Areca catechu L.) is one of the alternatives used as natural coloring agent. The aim of the research was to develop extract seed betel nut as a blusher compact powder. Extract was obtained by maceration with ethanol 95-96% then evaporated to 500 C. The resulting color extract was evaluated with concentration 10% value of 0HUE 244.17 ± 0.07 (blue), 15% value of 0HUE 309.13 ± 0.46 (grape) and 20% value of 0HUE 281.20 ± 0.00 (grape). Seed betel nut extract are formulated using zinc oxide, candlenut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, talcum, mica powder, magnesium stearate with concentrated 10%, 15%, and 20%. Extract can be made as blusher compact powder with color homogeny, uncrackable at 25 cm height, with lavender odor, pH 6.00 until 6.50. Blusher with a concentration of 10% produces pink color (0HUE 48.30 ± 0.00), 15% produces red color (0HUE25.00 ± 0.14), and 20% produces maroon (0HUE 68.67 ± 0.19). ALT test result and AKK eligible contamination limit microbial contamination that is not more than 10-3coloni/g.
