Homemade Bronzer For A Sunkissed Winter

homemade bronzerWe all look better bronze but find ourselves pale when December rolls around. There’s no way we are patient enough to wait for summer to come around to get our bronze on. We were rather giddy when we found this intriguing recipe for a homemade bronzer. It works, it’s customizable to your desired level of bronzification (yes, I made up a word), looks natural, and if you have a craving for something cinnamon-y, you just figure out a way to lick your face.

Here is the how-to. Try it out and let us know how it works:

1 tbsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp nutmeg powder
2 tsp cornstarch
15 drops rose otto, lavender, or rosemary essential oil
A few tips on the color:
Cinnamon = glow
Cocoa = depth and darkness
Nutmeg = a sunkissed brown
Cornstarch spreads it all out and lightens it.
Essential oil keeps it together and thickens.

If you want just a loose powder, leave out the essential oil.

Adjust the levels of ingredients to your shade, mix well in a small bowl, and break up any clumps until it’s smooth. Place the powder in a clean, empty compact and pack it in firmly. Apply like you would a pressed powder or compact bronzer.

Easy, right!? Show us. Tag your pics with #onthedm #beautyspo to show us how it looks.
