I wrote this blog article to help give you some Inso and guidance for how to apply and use eco glitter on both body and in arts and crafts.
If any of you know me, you will know my years of working a freehand body artist, has lead me to a life long loooovveeee of glitter! I use it on my body for festivals and events, and in my art work too. So it brings me great joy, to share with you all my Christmas Eco Glitter Kit, and below my hints, tips and insp.
Happy sparkle life!
Face, Body & Hair Application...
Take an old tooth brush and dip it in your tin of organic aloe vera (just like in my Christmas Eco Glitter kit)
Slide it through the area you want to apply the glitter (roots look lush!)
Then dip your tooth brush back in the glitter you want to use and dap it along the aloe vera
It will dry in 30 mins, and go slightly hard as the Aloe dries
To remove, simply wash out with your normal shampoo
Body & Face Application
- The same steps apply however for the face you may want to a larger brush to covers a bigger area. One pot from my kit is plenty to do an arm and a chest.
- I advise using the lid of one of your glitter tins as a mixing palette and dabbing some Aloe Vera in and mixing in your favourite eco glitters, and then applying your mix straight to your desired area.
Safety information for body application
Do not apply to damaged or inflamed skin or scalp
Not recommended for use around the eyes or mouth
If the product gets into your eyes, rinse immediately with water. If problems persist then see medical attention.
Although my eco glitter is purchased from a reputable seller and is free from 14 of the most common allergens, including gluten, I recommend performing a patch test before use.
