Bronzing powder gives a sun-kissed tan to an otherwise pale or dull complexion. The powder can be applied to the face, arms, and legs with a kabuki brush for a nice even glow. For the purposes of this recipe, I choose a bronze mica color for my fair-to-medium complexion. Other mica colors are available, and a link is provided at the end of this article. What I also like about this bronzing powder recipe is that it does not contain any talc, mineral oil, or parabens.
