All homemade, and all natural, this bronzer recipe won't clog your pores, won't cause breakouts, and won't leave your skin feeling cakey!

As with all DIY products though, make sure you patch test before applying to your face – you never know what you could be allergic to!

You'll Need:

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 2 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • 15 drops lavender or rosemary essential oil

NOTE: If you'd rather use a loose powder, just leave out the essential oil!


  1. In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  2. If you feel like you need a darker or lighter shade, simply adjust the ingredients to match your skin tone.
  3. For example, if you need a darker shade, add more cocoa powder. For a lighter shade, add more arrowroot powder. If your skin has a reddish tint, add in a little more cinnamon powder.
  4. Keep experimenting with the ingredients until you get YOUR perfect shade!
  5. Place the powder in a clean, empty compact and press down firmly.
  6. Use as you would any other bronzer!
