Super Easy shimmer lotion to make yourself

************PICTURES TO COME*****************

Did you ever want your body to glimmer and glow like model's walking down a catwalk? Well, this will teach you how to make easy shimmer body lotion, so your skin can sparkle and smell good, too! You don't need to go out and buy expensive items. This is super easy and you most likely have everything you need to make some.

You will need a small container/pot/bottle to put your shimmer cream in; a small spatula or spoon; a thick, white, unscented lotion; cosmetic-grade glitter or a sparkly pigment (mineral eye shadow is a good one!) or powdered mica, (DON'T use craft glitter or anything chunky!); and some essential/fragrance oil or your favorite perfume.

You also might want to keep some napkins or tissues nearby.

Lay down a tissue or napkin because you will be making a LOT of mess!

Scoop or squirt lotion into your pot so it fills it up halfway. If you're using a bottle, make the mixture in a bowl and transfer it into your bottle with a funnel when you've finished.

Add about 1/2 teaspoon of shimmer dust (great one to use is a mineral eyeshadow!) or cosmetic glitter. You can find cosmetic glitter anywhere - usually it comes in makeup kits for children.

Use your spoon or spatula to stir the mixture. Start by mixing in a swirling motion, and then fold the mixture over, like dough. Keep mixing until all the sparkles have blended in.

Next, add 1/4 teaspoon of essential oil or a pourable perfume. If you're using a spray perfume, spray it about 3 or 4 times into your container.

Mix again with your spoon.

Put the lid on the container and you've finished!

Whenever you want your body to shimmer, or if you're going out somewhere, grab some of the cream with your finger and then blend it into your arms, your legs, your shoulders, or anywhere where you want to have a bright glow.

You don't have to add perfume or essential oil (you can just use a scented lotion), but it's more fun to customize with a perfume or essential oil!

 Do NOT use this on your face! Anything scented is bad to put on your face and can make you break out, and who wants a super shimmery face anyway?
