Learn how to make and apply the best DIY Bronzer with two natural ingredients – cocoa powder and cornstarch – in this easy makeup recipe.
Add turmeric powder for a golden sheen that simulates a summer glow. Substitute one of the corn starch alternatives like arrowroot powder if you prefer to avoid corn.
You’ll need a big makeup brush and a container to keep the loose powder in. The photos show a 4 ounce jelly jar, but my preference is a half pint mason jar since the opening is big enough for a larger makeup brush.
How Make DIY Bronzer
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Ground turmeric - optional
- Small mixing bowl
- Half pint mason jar
- Large makeup brush
- Start with a tablespoon of cornstarch and slowly add cocoa powder until you get a nice shade that will embellish your skin tone, then stir to mix well.
- Test on a clean face or on the back of your hand, then continue to add more cocoa powder or corn starch until you get a shade that adds just a touch of a golden glow to your skin. To give your bronzer a more golden sheen, you can add in a bit of turmeric powder a little at a time until you get the right hue.
