We continuously preach on how important a bronzer is to any makeup arsenal – it’s certainly one of our favs!

This product possesses the power to put your face on the fast track to stunner status within just a few swipes!

Investing in a quality bronzer is certainly something we suggest. However, if purchasing this pricy cosmetic is not in your budget right now, all hope is not lost!
We have a fabulous DIY project you can do at home to create your very own bronzing powder!

This all-natural concoction is easy to make and is comprised of many of the spices and essentials oils you make already have at home! The key to creating the perfect at-home bronzer is to monitor the levels of the ingredients you add in.

The mixture contains cinnamon, which provides the glow, cocoa which adds depth and contour, nutmeg which lends sun kissed color, corn starch which subdues the tint and makes the formula easier to spread and the essential oils that will not only help it smell good, but also remain intact.

When putting this together, you can play with the levels depending on how much color, glow or contour you want. To ensure the bronzer gets dispersed on your face evenly, apply with a large kabuki brush! Now, glow on sun goddess!

What you’ll need:
- 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon Powder
- 1 Tsp. Cocoa Powder
- 1 Tsp. Nutmeg Powder
- 2 Tsp. Cornstarch
- 15 drops rose otto, lavender or rosemary essential oil.
- Empty compact case

How to:
- Add the desired amounts of each ingredient into a mixing bowl.
- Be sure to break up any clumps that may occur.
- Place the mixture into a clean, empty compact case.
- Press firmly down to pack the powder into the case firmly with the back of a spoon or other hard object.
