How To: Wear Body Shimmer

Wear Body Shimmer

Want glowing, shimmery skin? In this video, Amber Katz from Beauty Blogging Junkie shows you how to mix your own body shimmer and gives tips for applying it.

Step 1 Use eye shadow for highlighter

Choose one that's not glittery, but subtly shimmery.

Example: CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1 Kit shadow

Step 2 Apply highlighter

Use a powder brush and apply the eye shadow as a highlighter where light normally hits your bone structure: collar bone, shoulders, and décolletage.

Step 3   Mix shadow with lotion

Scrape a small amount of shadow and mix with body lotion to create a shimmery lotion for your body. 

Example: Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Body Lotion

Step 4   Scent your shimmer lotion

Add some scent to your shimmer lotion with a spritz of your favorite scent.


  • Use a gold or pale pink eye shadow within a shade or two of your skin tone to create a believable glow.
