Make skin glow?

How can I make my skin glow? Anyone know of any lotions that will give me a gold shimmer/glow to my dark skin. I'm black with a milk chocolate color so I don't need a sun tanner because I don't need a tan just a beautiful glow like Beyonce.

    Revlon's Bare It All Lustrous Lotion comes in a shade they call Goldilooks that should give the effect you're looking for.

    NARS Body Glow does the same thing, but costs $59 per bottle!

    :shock:

    Lancome Glow Sensuelle is $29, Benefit Flamingo Fancy is $24, Stila and Tarte both have "dry" shimmering oils and Smashbox has a glow lotion for $35 (all US dollars at Sephora).

    hope that helps!

    :D

    meow cosmetics has this stuff:
    Crystalline Cat Glow Powder is untinted and natural by design, so it won't interfere with the color of your foundation. As a result, it appears crystalline white in the jar. Because Crystalline Cat has no added colors to conflict with your other cosmetics, it can impart an almost transparent, translucent glowing sheen, anywhere you apply it!

    I got a sample and am liking this stuff.

    A "glow" on chocolate skin is the most beautiful thing ever....I think if you exfoliate, then use a mask, then moisturize, THEN use one of the above mentioned products, you'll be in business.

    I am about Beyonce's complexion (and I have a hint of extra color right now), and I am amazed at how nice my skin looks after I do a nice light scrub and mask.

    Are u asking about a facial glow or body glow?

    For a facial glow I agree with J'adore. Exfoliate, mask first. Then I use MAC's bronzer on my cheeks in Refined Beyond Bronze...has a little bit of gold shimmer. For my body I really want 2 glow on the weekends when I go out more. I exfoliate once a week like Friday, apply usual lotion and a dab of the Jergens glimmer lotion on top. HTH.
