Make It Yourself! (With Coconut Oil)

Highlighting Luminizer

What you need

3 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
2 1/2 teaspoons gold mica
1 3/4 teaspoons silver mica
Heat-proof glass jar
Small glass jars


Place a heat-proof glass jar in the center of a medium-sized saucepan. Add beeswax, coconut oil, and jojoba oil to the glass jar. Pour 3 inches of water into the pan; heat until beeswax has completely melted. Remove glass jar from the pan and add the gold and silver mica powders; stir to combine. Transfer liquid to small glass jars, and let the luminizer cool for 20 minutes before using. No refrigeration necessary so you can store this at room temperature with the rest of your cosmetics.

To apply, use your fingertips to lightly spread across your cheekbones, brow bones, and the inner corners of your eyelids—or anywhere else you want to catch the light.
