Since signing up for Birch Box’s sampling program I’ve discovered a lot of really great bath and beauty products. The rms beauty™ Living Luminizer is just one of many products I’ve had a chance to try. This natural face luminizer DIY is made using organic ingredients and gives skin a sheer glow – without adding too much shine or sparkle. (I get the whole dewy look, but at my age if I overdo it I look more like a clown than someone who’s successfully adulting.)

Learn how to make your own clean beauty products at home and save money by making dupes of your favorite eco-luxe makeup - starting with this easy DIY mineral makeup highlighting natural face luminizer recipe! This natural face luminizer recipe highlights and accents eyes, cheekbones and lips by giving skin a sheer glow without too much shine or sparkle.

This DIY face luminizer is formulate with primarily organic ingredients. They are pretty basic ingredients that you’d expect to use when crafting your own natural skin care products. So even if this is your first beauty product DIY, you’ll find that you can use these ingredients over and over again in other homemade beauty recipes. My DIY face luminizer consists of beeswax, coconut oil, castor oil, vitamin E oil, rosemary extract and mica. The mica is what gives this natural beauty product its pop. Otherwise, it’s just a beauty balm.

Because the Living Luminizer by rms beauty™ is $38 a pop for a .2 oz. container, I decided to craft my own version of this natural face luminizer at a fraction of the cost. In addition I also “dressed up” this natural face luminizer recipe by molding it into pretty little flowers that fit perfectly inside 1/3 oz. lip balm pots. The results of my version of this natural beauty product are pretty spot on. So my DIY face luminizer is pretty perfect for highlighting cheekbones, eyelids and even lips! You can also use it as a base for your eyeshadow to both brighten it up and give it extra staying power.

Natural Face Luminizer Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

7 grams beeswax
14 grams 76° melt point coconut oil
4 grams grapeseed oil or castor oil
5 drops (non-GMO) vitamin E oil
5 drops rosemary extract
4 grams Diamond Dust mica powder

Directions:

To complete this project you’ll need one silicone chocolate flower mold, a digital kitchen scale, plastic transfer pipettes, a butter knife, a teaspoon and/or tablespoon, a microwave and a glass pyrex measuring cup.

Start by weighing out the beeswax in a glass measuring cup.

Melt the beeswax in either a double boiler on in the microwave at reduced power. (I recommend slowly heating at 30% power.) Watch carefully to ensure the beeswax does not smoke.

Remove from microwave, if using, then weigh out the coconut oil (around a Tablespoon) and stir into the beeswax using a butter knife.

Next, weigh out the grape seed oil and add to the mixture. (I chose to use grape seed oil in place of castor oil as it absorbs easily, is non-greasy and is naturally non-allergenic. However, you can use any carrier oil of your choice.)

Using a plastic pipette for each oil, you will then add five drops each of vitamin E oil and rosemary extract to your DIY face luminizer base.

Finally, use a teaspoon to weigh out the mica of your choice – about three teaspoons – and to the beeswax and oils.

Mix thoroughly with a butter knife, then pour evenly into four of the flower shaped molds and allow to harden. (For larger .3 oz. sized flowers of luminizer, fill three flower shaped molds completely. This will leave a little leftover for a fourth mold to use as a tester.) You can place the mold into the freezer to expedite this process.

This natural face luminizer recipe highlights and accents eyes, cheekbones and lips by giving skin a sheer glow without too much shine or sparkle.

Once your natural face luminizer has cooled and hardened completely, remove from molds and place into 1/3 oz. (10 grams) lip balm pots of your choice. To use, simply rub your fingertips across luminizer and apply to skin where desired.
