As summer rolls in, glitter is expected to make rounds in a lot of beauty looks this season. The runway models of DKNY and Maison Margiela sported shimmering lips and eye makeup courtesy of Pat McGrath.
There are also those who make it more interesting by scattering glitter on different parts of their body. One of the viral trends right now is putting it on your bum. “This year, try to wear it in a less precise manner than you’ve tried before,” Harper’s Bazaar writes. “The less perfect it looks, the more perfect it is.”
You can do so much with glitter even though it’s a hassle to remove. It’s a suitable accessory for your upcoming summer parties and musical festivals. If you want to know the various ways you can pull off glitter, you can shop the items we listed below.
