Mix all the ingredients well with a rubber sputula. Fold over, and press into bowl is the best method, while cleaning of the sputula often. Place in a wide mouth glass jar, or your favorite container. Best used with a brush, like in the photo, in circular motion.
You can increase the recipe. I increased the recipe 10 times (this makes a small jar as in the photo above). This amount lasts me about a month, but I don't wear makeup everyday.
How to increase? For 10 times, it's 10-teaspoons arrowroot powder, 10-cocoa amount, 10 daps of shea butter (sorry I can't measure this), and 10 drops each of almond oil and Vitamin E.
Cocoa amounts for your shade. To the recipe at the top, add this:
Very Light - 1/8 teaspoon cocoa
Light - 1/4 teaspoon cocoa
Medium - 1/2 teaspoon cocoa
Tan - 1 teaspoon cocoa
Dark and Bronzer - 2 teaspoon cocoa
Very Bronzer - 3 teaspoon cocoa
The recipe and photos are medium shade, which is my most popular shade, and my shade as well.
