I love glitter! I love glitter! I love Glitter….did I mention I love glitter?
When used badly, it can make a person look like a Mardi Gras partygoer at 3am, but when used artfully, the magical sparkles have the ability to add accents of magic in a way that no other makeup product can. This season, glitter popped up on lids, liners, as accents on the forehead, and even as coverage on some more forbidden areas. But a true favourite use was on the lips.
Pat McGrath hit a note of perfection with the Bordeaux and chocolate lip she created for DKNY. Another favorite was executed by Peter Philips for Fendi. Philips created a salmon shade that sat just between pink and rose gold, the glitter catching just enough light to make the lips a hypnotizing focal point.
Whatever the area you wish to bring glitter to life on, the best way is to just give it a try by picking up a tube . Or you can try to get your hands on one of Ms. McGrath’s eternally sold out lip kits.
