A slight shimmer on the skin is something we should all covet. Light reflection is the epitome of radian, healthy skin. We should all hope to create natural light reflection through adequate exfoliation. But couldn't we all use a little extra help?
Just as we apply shimmer to the high points of our cheeks to create the illusion of a defined bone structure, so we utilize the magic of shimmer to instantly appear more toned and firm. To create this experience for yourself, one could simply combine an illuminator with your favorite body oil. The ideal product for this type of thing is MACs Lustre Drops. Since it's already in liquid form, it blends quite easily with oil. I love the tiny tip at the end of the bottle that allows for careful application. The last thing anyone wants to is to go overboard. Gleam by Melanie Mills was made to create the most flawless glow imaginable. Simply put, bare skin looks better with it on. No wonder why celebrities of all skin tones reach for the stuff when competing on Dancing with the Stars.
LORAC Tantelizer Baked Bronzer and mixing with oil. A similar result was achieved although it was a bit more work than using a liquid formula. As an alternative, I tried blending a loose bronzing powder with oil and it worked just as well.
Let's be amazing this summer. Going forward we shall both moisturize and illuminate! Why just show off your skin when you can showcase it?
