Introduction: Tips for Wearing Body Shimmer Get glowing, gorgeous skin that catches the light with this step-by-step guide to hand-mixing and applying your own body shimmer.


1. Start with an eye shadow: Choose one that's not glittery, but subtly shimmery. Here we used a CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1 Kit shadow.

2. Apply the shimmer to your collarbone, décolletage and shoulders: Use a small to medium powder brush to highlight bone structure.

3. Take more shadow and mix it with body lotion to make your shimmer last longer: Cut a small amount from the corner of the shadow, scoop it out onto your palm and mix with a bit of unscented, uncolored body lotion like Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Body Lotion.

4. Add scent to your shimmer: Complete step 3, and add a spritz or two to the shadow/lotion mix and rub it on for a fragranced shimmer.

Tip: Use an eye shadow that's in a gold or pink shade within a few shades of your skin tone for a believable glow.
