All that Shimmers


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!

Saving Face


We all have that vision of seamlessly pulling off the red, white, and blue along with a flawless face.  But  realistically,  it will take a few tweaks to your everyday routine to weather proof your look. These tips and products are a game changer!

Protect Your Pout

Maintain colour, even on the hottest of days can be rather difficult but can be done.

1. Prep your lips with a basic chapstick

2. Line and fill your lips with glo minerals lip filler pencil, the best thing about this pencil is it’s colorless so it will work with any lip color.

3. With a brush apply your chosen lip color, gently press your lips together then blot on a tissue.

4. With a soft bristle puffy brush dust setting powder over the lips. Brush off any excess powder. This will help set the color and leave almost like a lip stain effect.

5. Reapply lip color once more with a brush, and top with your gloss of choice.

Fake the Bake

We all love an amazing summer tan, but the repercussions on your skin are irreversable. One product t I have fallen head over heels for is Jane Iredale’s Tantasia. There is a trick to applying this product so that it is applied evenly, and during those hot days you don’t sweat off your tan.

1. During your shower, after you shave your legs, apply Eminence Shower Scrub in a circular motion all over. These will buff away the dead skin and stimulate circulation providing a silky even surface.

2. After drying the skin apply Eminence Coconut Firming Lotion all over, working the lotion in so it is fully absorbed.

A product you’ll truly become addicted to for that year round gorgeous glow!

3. Finish by applying a dime to a quarter size amount of Tantasia (depending on the area being covered and the desired darkness) throughly on your legs, arms, and chest. You can even mix a tiny amount into your night cream to add some glow to your face (avoid the eyebrows). *Make sure to wash your hands* Do not dress for 10-15min so the product has time to absorb and dry.

4. Several hours later you’ll be rocking a gorgeous glow!


Finish the Face

Prevent the mid day meltdown by prepping and finishing the face with these simple steps.

1. An important step a lot of women skip is cleansing the face prior to applying anything. This step makes a huge difference, removing anything (sweat, night cream, oil, etc) that may affect the longevity of your make up.

2. Apply a moisturizer (preferably with an SPF) and eyecream. Immediately after apply Smooth Affair Facial Primer from Jane Iredale, this primer will not only hold your make up better, but it is also good for your skin!

3. Once your full face is on, finish by dusting glo minerals Loose Matte Finishing Powder; sets looks to last all day while soaking up oil, keeping skin shine-free.

4. Complete by spritzing Jane Iredales’ Pom Mist Hydration spray to set your look!
