DIY BODY LAVA // Make Your Own Body Highlighter For Free!

Hello my pumpkins! In today’s article, I am sharing with you how to make your own body lava. So, I am sharing with you how to make your own body highlighter for free! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Fenty Beauty recently released a body lava which is literally a highlighter for the body and it costs 59$. But honey, are we willing to spend 59$ for something we can make at home? of course not!

This my version of the Body Lava, it is super easy and affordable to do so if you want to know how I make my own Body Luminizer then keep on reading!

DIY Body Lava

What you will need

For this DIY, you will need:

  • Body oil – I got mine from PINK but you don’t need to spend so much money, the baby Johnson oil is good enough. And you can add Coconut oil to make it more dense and to give your oil a good smell.
  • Highlighters – I used my NYX highlighting palette, I don’t use this one anymore so I thought I would put it for good use and my Becca Cosmetics shimmery loose powder.
  • Funnel and a spoon of course- just to make the process cleaner and easier.

DIY Body Lava Step by Step


First, I broke my highlighters into pieces, mixed them together with the Shimmery loose powder by Becca. I used the highlighters shade that I thought would look good on my body.


Second, I used a funnel to poor the content into my body oil.


Third, I mixed everything really well to have homogenous mixture and TA DA!!!



I love how my body lava turned out, it smells amazing and it gives a gorgeous shimmery finish. It does feel oily even after a while but I heard that the Body Lava by Fenty Beauty feels sticky and oily as well.


That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email].

    I watched many DIY videos for body lava and almost all of them turn out amazing. It’s just shimmery body oil, so why not make it at home for cheap, the result is the same. You did great job girl, it looks amazing. xx

      yesss, honestly, I wouldn’t use it a lot too, that’s one of the reasons why I preferred making it myself rather than buying one. Thanks a lot for reading xx
