For this week's posted, I was hoping to share a concealer recipe because I am almost out and I would really like not to have to buy more, but after not being able to RE-find the recipe I was hoping to use and then a few failed attempts left my eyes irritated, I decided it was going to have to wait. So I moved on to the next item on my list, bronzer.
This is something I usually just go without, so I don't have much to compare it to but it's extremely simple to make using what I had on hand, the color is very adjustable, and goes on nice with a very natural looking color. I also must add through my reading on homemade makeup I've come across how beneficial cinnamon is for the skin ... double bonus!
I followed Robin Konie's recipe at "thank your body" and the color works well for my fairer skin.
1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Combine all ingredients into a mortar and pestle (which I found things around my house to make my own, but you wouldn't have to I just found it to make the mixture finer) and blend well. Store in a small container with lid. Tap excess powder off brush before each application.
