I have heard that you should avoid too much shimmer because it will look funny in your photos.  I think a little bit of “glow” is nice (ala Miss Rainbow’s post about countouring and higlighting) but actual glitter could perhaps tip the scales into the “goin’ to the club” vibe.

I don’t know any specifics but a friend of mine wore some of her “fairy dust” to her wedding. She looked amazing and it photographed really well. It was a shimmer more than a glitter effect but against her skin tone it was fabulous. I think it really depends on the person. I’d try to experiment with it if you can beforehand and try to get some photos of you taken just to see how it comes out 🙂

I think B&BW sells some body shimmer powder. I will say use it sparingly b/c a little goes a long way…especially in the summer/daytime. When you do your trial runs…put it on and take some pictures in bright light as well as outside so that you can get a good idea of how it will look on you.

I think that a luminescent (sp?!) bronzer would provide the same type of shimmer as well… definitely ask your makeup artist or the person that you purchase makeup from.
