Why Every Woman Needs a Pot of Shimmer Dust

Shake up your makeup and shine in 2016! Take your look from naturally nude to pro artistry with a little shimmer that enhances your features. Perfect for a relaxed day look, or as an intense night out showstopper. We share 20 of our favourite ways to get the most out of one pot of shimmer dust.


1. Pat your favourite shade into the middle of the eyelid using your fingertip to create a subtle but radiant eye. All our shimmer dust shades will work.

2. For a metallic effect, spritz your brush with your favourite Hydration Spray, then press into your pot and apply to the eyelid. High intensity shine!

3. For a smooth smoky effect, apply the Black Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner then use a dampened Smudge Brush to overlay the 24-Karat Shimmer Dust in Gold or Silver.

4. To create a vintage look, apply Champagne Silk or Brown Silk Eye Shere on the eyelid and layer Bronze 24-Karat Gold Dust on top. Using the Black Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner draw a winged line along the upper lash line and apply Longest Lash Mascara.

5. For a striking gold eye, start with Lemon Lid Primer, and then press Gold 24-Karat on top. Finish with Black Onyx PureLash Mascara on top and bottom lashes.

6. For a super model golden brow, apply PureBrow Brow Gel to the brows. While wet, apply Gold 24-Karat Gold Dust using the Detail Brush.


7. To create a luminous highlight, dust the Gold or Silver shimmer powder onto the top of the cheekbone with the White Fan Brush.

8. With the shade of your choice mix a small amount of 24-Karat Gold Dust with Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener or Smooth Affair for Oily Skin and apply with the Blending Brush to give an all over glow.

9. For a warm, radiant look mix your favourite shade of 24-Karat Gold Dust with any shade of In Touch® Cream Blush on the back of your hand, using the Foundation Brush, apply to cheeks. We love the champagne shade for rosy looking cheeks!


10. Apply all over your body a mixture of Bronze 24-Karat Gold Dust and Tantasia for a vibrant, glittering bronze.

11. Mix the shimmer dust with your favourite body oil to add a beautiful sheen to your skin.

12. Use the Silver or Gold shades on your collar bones to emphasise and define for a sexy candlelit glow.

13. To spice it up on a night out apply the 24-Karat Gold Dust with your favourite powder brush over your shoulders and décolleté for that sought-after sensual feel and look.

14. Apply to earlobes for an unexpected dazzle that complements your favourite braid, pony or up-do.


15. With your favourite lip gloss applied, press your 24-Karat Gold Dust into it. This will add dimension and develop a shimmery look.

16. Tap Gold or Silver into the centre of the lower lip with your fingertip, and then apply your go-to lip gloss to make the lip appear fuller and shinier.

17. Apply a small amount of Forever Pink, Forever Peach or Forever Red Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain to the lips and cheeks then blend in a small amount of Gold or Silver 24-Karat Gold Dust for a bright and hydrated look.

 Hair and nails:

18. To liven up your highlights, mix a shade of 24-Karat Gold Dust into your favourite hair product.

19. Paint nails with your favourite colour. While the polish is still wet, sprinkle a small amount on the half moon area of your nail. Shake your hand once in a downward motion to spread down the nail, creating an ombré effect. Finish with a topcoat.

20. Rub 24-Karat Gold Dust into your natural nail bed and apply a clear nail polish to seal.
