Pamper Me Monday: Late Post

Homemade Body Shimmer

I love body shimmer, but I really don't like to buy it. Sometimes its too glittery, and sometimes its too golden. I don't wanna look blinged out unless I'm accessorizing, or look toasted anymore than I already am.

So, I crushed up some of my favorite gold Milani eyeshadow and stirred it into my favorite Body Butter, about a 4 to 1 mixture. Then I added 1/4 teaspoon of gold body glitter. Here is my exact recipe:

1/4 tsp gold eyeshadow
1/4 teaspoon gold body glitter
1 cup lotion

I've never tried this before, so I wasn't sure if it would work, but it did! The eyeshadow changed my body butter to a nice, smooth khaki, which I looove! And it added a slight shimmer along with the gold body glitter. It's just the right amount for me!! This did not translate well in photos, I assume it's because of how subtle it is, so sorry no photos of my lotioned up body! But trust me, it is great!!

Thanks for reading!!
