The return of body shimmer

Flares, bushy brows, crop tops and block colour – we’re loving the recent return of all these trends. The latest craze expected to take summer 2018 by storm is shimmery skin, allowing us to relive the good old noughties!

With famous faces like Rihanna releasing new body highlighters, and influencers like Jamie Genevieve sporting glowy shoulders in weekly YouTube videos, it’s no surprise that we’ve become obsessed with body shimmer once again.

Read on to discover why we’ll be opting for that all-over glow, with a little help from our trusty Shimmer Lotion, this summer.

Lotions vs. oils

Dirty Works Bling It On Shimmer LotionEver applied a shimmery oil and felt the instant urge to wash the product away? We can’t stand the sticky feeling during the hot summer months, which is why we’d opt for a lotion over an oil any day of the week!

The good thing about shimmer lotion is that it’s much easier to apply than oil and provides a smoother finish, as the texture is more buildable and sinks into the skin with ease. It also has a more lightweight finish, so can be layered to provide as subtle or dramatic a finish as you like!

How to apply

Once skin has been washed and pat dry, massage a palm-sized amount of our shimmer lotion into the body using sweeping motions.

Our top tip for achieving that signature Rihanna look is to apply a shimmer lotion to the centre of the arms and legs, shoulders and collarbones, but if you’re aiming for an all-over glow, then cover the body from head-to-toe!

For an extra OOMPH, dust a powder highlight along the areas you would like to accentuate (e.g. collarbones and shoulders). Our Blush & Glow palette includes a pink tone highlighter which will bring some added sparkle to the skin!
