What’s the deal with all this glitter?

Glitter is everywhere. Which is apt seeing as it gets everywhere when you use it. It was all over the ss16 catwalks and it will soon be all over our faces.

Eyeshadow, lip stickers, nail polish, highlighter, eyeliner. They can put it in anything.

These Glitter Lips (£12.50) have been around for a while.

But now would be the perfect time to cash in on this trend. Alternatively you can buy loose glitter and apply on top of lipstick/gloss with a q-tip. OCC have loose glitter for £9.50. This can be applied anywhere. Lime Crime have a Glitter Helper for £13.38 that works as a base for lose glitter, helping it stay in place. Use for improvising your own glitter eyeshadow.


For eyeliner I recommend Urban Decay’s Midnight Cowboy glitter eyeliner (£14).


It comes in six dazzling colours and is by far the simplest way to embrace this trend.

Nail varnishes have had glitter lines forever, however anyone who has ever used glitter nail polish knows that its almost easier to remove the whole nail than to remove glitter from them. So investing in some nail wraps or stick ons makes much more sense. For example, Elegant Touch’s Jelly Dazzle and Jelly Twinkle press on nails (£7.95)

By far the easiest way to glitter nails at home.

For some sparkle on your cheekbones, try one of the Mac pigments. The glitter pigment in Reflects Gold (£16) would be perfect for the Christmas party.


So go forth this Christmas season, or however long this glitter trend lasts, and shine!
