Bronzer is the answer to sun-kissed, glowing skin without facing the harsh sunlight!

Bronzer is often confused with contouring sticks and no, they are not the same. Bronzer helps enhance your tan and darken the skin without masking it, whereas, contouring slims down your facial structure. While some bronzers are high on shimmer, others have a natural matte finish. So, depending on the kind of look you wish to achieve, you must opt for a texture accordingly.

On days when you’re running out of your trusty bronzer, here’s a solution! A DIY bronzer with the help of natural ingredients from your kitchen shelf. Yes, you read that right! Here’s how to make your own bronzer at home:

Ingredients you need:

  • Cinnamon - to add glow
  • Nutmeg - for a sun-kissed natural brown
  • Cocoa - to add depth and darkness
  • Cornstarch - to balance it all out
  • Essential oil - to hold the mixture together

The hack

Mix together one tablespoon cinnamon, one teaspoon cocoa and nutmeg each, two teaspoons cornstarch and 15 drops of rosemary or lavender essential oil. Make sure all the ingredients feel fine enough without any clumps. If you want a darker bronzer hue, then add more cocoa powder. You can adjust the quantity of the ingredients as per the shade you desire. Cinnamon will not only give a mild fragrance but also add a glimmer effect to your makeup.
