What is it?
Scott Barnes is a celebrity makeup artist with a client list to drool over. He has made up the faces of Beyonce, Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Celine Dion. Barnes is most known for being Jennifer Lopez’s makeup artist for over 11 years, and he is solely responsible for her signature “glow.” Lucky for us, Scott Barnes has created a shimmering body moisturizer called Body Bling which gives everyone the opportunity to look sunkissed and red carpet ready.

I have been testing out Scott Barnes’ Body Bling on myself and at shoots for the past week and I’m really liking it. It comes in two different colors, Original and Platinum. Original actually applies a temporary wash of color and gives your skin a beautiful, bronzed glow. It’s great for those who want a quick tan, and also for women of color. Platinum only applies a hint of color and gives off a lighter, champagne-colored glow. Platinum is perfect for fair skin as it adds little to no color depending on your skin tone.
Up close and in sunlight, the product does look very shimmery. It looks great once you step back a bit because the shimmer blurs, making your skin look like it is “lit from within.” It also evens out small imperfections. I really like how this product translates on camera. Last week, I used Platinum Body Bling on an editorial shoot with an actress and it made her skin look super healthy and glowy.
Body Bling rubs into your skin effortlessly without leaving unattractive streaks. It also lasts forever, I still had some on even after I showered. While it is transfer resistant, I did notice some sparkle on my clothes after wearing it.
If you’re a makeup artist, I really like Body Bling for photoshoots and red carpet. It’s extremely glamorous and gives a noticeable glow to the skin. To achieve a more subtle effect, try mixing it with a moisturizer. For consumers, this product is perfect for going out at night, either to go clubbing, or on a date. It should also be on every girl’s (and some guy’s) Vegas pack list! I do think the shimmer might be a bit too much for normal, day wear though.
