Get the Look: Light-Catching Sparkle

It may not officially be summer yet, but it’s sure starting to feel like it. Time to let our skin shine! Tastefully sparkle from head to toe, like Jessica Alba above, with a body illuminator or a body moisturizer with a subtle shine. Either way you’ll want to apply it at least 20 minutes before getting dressed to make sure it’s fully absorbed into your skin – the only thing worse than lotion on clothes, is shiny lotion on clothes… Also, you’ll want to look for products with micronized shimmer rather than larger flakes for the most natural  light-catching effect possible (especially around your face and decolletage – this one from Sephora ($12) is a great buy). Others worth checking out are Illamasqua Illuminator ($20), which works especially well when mixed in with moisturizer and Caudalie Divine Legs ($38), which is perfect for those afraid of self-tanners because it just glides on without a risk of streaking and it washes off (plus it smells great…) – it should be noted that the Caudalie product is on the darker side however and a little melting off did occur in the heat so beware of wearing white with it!
