Fenty on a budget

I love Rhi Rhi, I love Fenty Beauty even more. #HighlightonFleek But sometimes a Queen needs to stick to a budget. While I absolutely love the glow up the Fenty Beauty Body Lava provides, I can't, in good conscious, drop $60 on body glitter.


With that being said, I'm still a Queen and though I'm on a budget (literally just quit my day time job), that doesn't mean I can't look damn fine and shine. So I found this beauty hack on Instagram. It was posted by @Satinscarves. It's a DIY Body Lava, that I just had to try. All in all, I found most of the things I needed to make this in my home. The only thing I needed to go out and buy was a light weight baby oil and a good applicator brush. I paid $17 in total and the process took less than five minutes. Here's how it went down:


The Ingredients

I used the Elf Beauty Blender Brush and Coconut Oil

1. Light weight Baby Oil (Aragon Oil, Almond Oil, or Coconut Oil are good substitutes)

2. Eye shadow or bronzer (You can use a pallet you no longer use)

3. A piece of paper

4. OPTIONAL: Depending on how your eye shadow/bronzer is packaged, you'll need something to scrape the product off and onto the piece of paper

5. OPTIONAL: A clear plastic bottle to hold your oil Or you can just use the same bottle your oil comes in


The Process:

1. Collect a good amount of eye shadow/bronzer on the blank piece of paper.

2. Use the paper as a funnel to pour the paper into the baby oil.

3. Shake well and add more shadow/bronzer as needed.

4. Apply


Final Thoughts

This is definitely something I would recommend for you to try. However, I would warn that you use this in moderation as too much oil in the sun could potentially burn your skin. Although I could see the glitter in person, the shine in the photos above looks like it's coming from the oil. So again, I would advise that you use a healthy amount of shadow/bronzer.
