DIY: Make Your Own Bronzer!!!

Don't you hate when your out of bronzer but also strapped for cash? If your like me (pretty much albino) then you know, you can't live without bronzer. So what do you do in one of these devastating situations? Make your own bronzer!

You only need three things:
  • Some kind of container. I used an empty Bare Minerals, Mineral Veil pot.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder. It's very important that it's unsweetened  because it has no sugar so it won't cause breakouts.
  • Powdered sugar.
It is not extremely important the measurements of cocoa and sugar, but try to either have equal parts sugar and cocoa or more sugar that cocoa because the sugar dilutes the cocoa and prevents you from being muddy. You can also use hot cocoa mix or cinnamon.


  1. Wow i never thought about making my own before! This is awesome, thanks for sharing :)

  2. very interesting!! thanks for sharing!

  3. How long does it last on your face?

  4. Why make sure the cocoa is unsweetened as sugar causes blemishes and then use powdered sugar? Isn't sugar ... sugar?

  5. Most granulated sugar is about 0.5mm across, but grain size varies. That's the perfect size to block pores. Powdered sugar doesn't clog pores because it's simply too small.
