Easy DIY Tan Body Shimmer Spray

I was looking online on how to make my own makeup setting spray when I read that most setting sprays and primers contain glycerin as a main component ingredients. It not only helps to keep moister locked but will help to set makeup pigments into place. So applying the same principles of setting spray, I decided to take some of my old or inexpensive eye shadows and came up with a solution that not only made my legs and shoulders look shimmery but it also gave a little bit of an airbrush effect! I have been using this spray when my fake tan is starting to wear off and needed a quick fix or just for every day use! I heard about using oil (such as almond oil) to create shimmer oils, but I find glycerin to do a better job at getting the pigments to stay put and it also felt less sticky on my skin.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Empty diffuser
  • Inexpensive golden – bronze – highlighting eye shadows or loose pigments
  • Vegetable Glycerin
  • distilled Water (the mix will keep longer if you use distilled water )

  • Mix ¼ part glycerin with ¾ water
  • Experiment on the side the proportions of eye shadows / pigments to create desired color to match your skin tone and add to the mix. Or any color you’d like!
  • I used inexpensive eye shadow pigments, so I had to use a blender to finely mild them so they wouldn’t’t come out spritzing in tiny clunks of pigment. Some pigments are finely enough though, so a few shakes will just do.

Shake and spritz on clean dry skin!

Avoid applying lotion when using this spray due to that the glycerin can be a tiny bit sticky layered on top of lotion.

The results are subtle and natural; the glycerine gives my skin a natural sheen and keeps my skin hydrated while the pigments add a subtle tan that will wash off when you shower!
