Glow Like A Goddess With The Best Body Shimmer Lotions And Beyond

The clean-girl aesthetic may have died down, but the goddess-glisten trend is here to stay. With the onset of the summer season, it’s time to resurrect our sultry summer dresses, shorts, and spaghetti tops. But the hottest (literally and figuratively) season of the year is incomplete without the summery glow on your shoulder, décolletage, and arms.

We have all seen Hailey glowing from head-to-toe at her brand’s one-year launch party, where she makeshifts a body shimmer with glazing milk from her brainchild brand Rhode, and a liquid highlighter. Now, Rhode is not yet available in India and the liquid highlighter featured in her video is quite on the expensive side, but we are here to help you become a ‘Glaze-luminati’ as Justin Beiber puts it, without breaking your bank.

What Is A Body Shimmer?

A body shimmer is a cosmetic item that would perhaps fall under the luxe category, given it’s not a beauty essential. When applied correctly, it highlights different parts of your body sans any greasiness, alleviating your overall look. The trick with body shimmers is to not overdo it, instead, apply it to specific areas such as collar bones, décolletage, shoulder, arms, and the shins of your legs.

The Best Body Shimmer Lotions and Beyond

The best shimmer for the body can come in various formulae; they can be lotions, sprays, oil, and even powder. Every formulation offers a different result, and you can choose your pick based on the level of shimmer you desire.

The Best Body Shimmer Lotions and Beyond

  1. Skin Tone: The darker your skin, the better the pigment payoff of your shimmer. Lighter skin tones may look like a disco ball if slathered with too much glitter.
  2. Shimmer Size: Some shimmer oils, creams, and butter contain larger glitter particulates while others have minuscule particles. Depending on the look you are going for, opt for the appropriate size– our recommendation would be to opt for smaller-sized glitter particles as they look more natural and are better absorbed by the skin.
  3. Subtle Or Strong: If you desire subtle shimmer, go for a power highlighter, whereas, if you’d prefer a dramatic finish, choose a gel or cream-based shimmer.
