Ah, Festival season; one of the only times you can just about get away with wearing glitter as a grown-up. It’s shiny, it’s versatile, and boy is it fun to apply, and this year people have been finding even more creative ways to bedazzle their bods.
From glitter roots to glitter tears (and freckles!), we thought we had seen it all, until our Instas started blowing up with glistening images of bedazzled bottoms emblazoned with eye catching shimmer – a look we predict many a millennial will be rocking once festival season is in full swing. And did we mention #glittertits? Yes, they’re officially a thing too. But don’t panic, if like us you’re not too keen on letting it all hang out, there’s a million ways to rock this tried and tested trend without going overboard.
Our advice? Practice a few looks at home before you hit the campsite – there’s nothing worse than getting a little trigger happy without the luxury of running water nearby. From sophisticated flecks of under eye shimmer to chunky glitter over a glossy lip, creating your own metallic masterpiece is easier than you think.
