Fake It Till You Make It Bronzer


The sun is teasing us today and our minds automatically wander to Summer and how we missed our sun-kissed cheeks and bronzed faces. And then we realised we had a fabulous recipe in our new book Clean Beauty for a 100% natural bronzer you can whip up in no time and will have people asking where you just got back from. Cue smug face.

Fragrant Face Bronzer

Makes 15g

Our take on the classic mineral bronzer uses ingredients from your spice drawer to give you that summer glow. Quantities are approximate based on colouring, so adjustment is needed depended on the shade desired. Cocoa gives depth and darkness, so is not imperative for lighter shades. Nutmeg and cinnamon create the warm brown glow, and arrowroot will ensure everything combines and spreads evenly.

  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Arrowroot Powder

Mix the powders well in a small bowl, breaking up any clumps. Transfer to an empty make-up compact and apply when needed.

Shelf Life: 3 months. Tip: apply with a brush not fingers! You can also add mica powder for a subtle shimmer.
