All that Shimmers

0

There was a time when the thought of “shimmer” brought me back to the days of 8th grade, when the Spice girls were cool, and everything looked better with shimmer or glitter…..this thought makes me cringe. However, over the past few years I have learned there is definitely an adult way to utilize shimmer.

Cheek and brow shimmer highlight

Jane Iredale has two fantastic products out; 24-Karat Gold Dustprovides a loose shimmer in a trio of colors (silver, bronze, and gold), depending upon your skin tone and the look you want to create this product can be used a number of ways. Highlighting the cheek bones, brow bones, or dusting it on your shoulders/collar bones is a great way to subtlety highlight.

Highlight your collar bones and decollatage!

For best results apply shimmer dust with fan brush

These amazing shimmer dust are fantastic in three blendable shades in bronze, gold, and silver!

Another amazing, but limited edition product is Jane’s Golden Shimmer Face & Body Lotion. This lotion provides a more simplistic way to apply shimmer to your shoulders and decolletage.

Glominerals also has Shimmer Brickwhich is perfect for everyday use. This product provides a subtle luster, so you can highlight lips, cheeks, and brow bone. You can easily create a simple fresh faced look by highlighting after concealing, then finishing with eye liner and mascara.

Universal shimmer to add a little something to an everday look

 

To ensure you are going to select a shade of shimmer that best suits your skin tone, do a swipe test on your hand, and also the side of your face. This is important mainly because your face is much lighter than your arms/legs.  Select the shade that will best compliment your skin tone and desired look.

Comparing shades of shimmer side by side is the best way to visually see what compliments your skin.

 

If you already have a shimmer product, but just haven’t fully been knowledgable in how to use it, eyes and cheeks are a great place to test the waters. Check out some of these stellar celeb photos of how shimmer was utilized in their evening eye look!
