Glow like youi've been traveling: Jane Iredale Golden Shimmer

See also

Sometimes, you can travel to a place that helps lend a sun-kissed glow and sometimes, you can't. Many people have to avoid the sun altogether, in whatever climate they find themselves. And yet, who wants to wear pantyhose when it's hot out? Who doesn't crave the look of luxurious lolling in the rays?

It's easy to mimic the look wherever you are with Jane Iredale Golden Shimmer. I was happy to be hosted to experience it! Jane Iredale is a luxe mineral makeup line that can be found at the most exclusive spas, plastic surgeon's offices, boutiques.

It's a face and body lotion -- now you don't have to pack two while traveling -- that's sized perfectly for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags. It's a handy tube that lends a glamorous sheen, not a teeny-bopper glitter. The color should work on a wide range of skin tones. This is what they say about it:

Golden Shimmer can be worn alone or paired with your favorite makeup. The natural formula rejuvenates and hydrates with botanical extracts, so it is gentle enough to be used on the face or body. It leaves skin soft and hydrated and may be used in conjunction with a self tanner, like Tantasia, to safely build a shimmering, bronzed look. Safety tested, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested.

Use it as a great summer highlighter all over. They suggest using either your fingertip or a brush. I would also suggest the tip of a makeup sponge. Think about your cheekbones, tip of your nose, tip of your chin, for photographs. Also, it makes a great highlighter for your hands, especially if you're showing off new rings.
