Glitter: Fun or Finished?

25 April, 2014

Written by Rachel Trickett in Beauty & Hair

This glitter-fest of a post may send a shudder down the spines of women who normally go for minimal (or no) makeup. But, backstage at SS14 runway shows, makeup artists were busy face-planting super models into barrels of glitter. Well, maybe not literally - but what a fun mental image.

As little girls, brightly coloured pallets of glittery makeup fascinated us - Usually given from a distant aunt as a girly yet ‘grown up’ gift. During our pre-adolescent first meet with tinsel tat makeup, we fell in love with submerging our fresh little faces in a mess of glitter. But, over time the glitter faded from our makeup bags, giving way to subtle matte shades of serious eye shadows and perfectionist foundations. Let’s face it; most of us are probably starting to feel by now we’ve reached a kind of makeup maturity. With the exception of the odd Christmas do, how often do we reach for a glistening eye shadow or shimmering eyeliner? It’s time to let glitter make us smile again ladies! We say bravo to MUA's like Peter Phillips - who proved he’s got some big glittery balls when he slathered models under-eyes with full on silver glitter at the Chanel Haute Couture show. Dior, Jason Wu and Emilio Pucci too showed us how to work glitter back into our lives with a modern mantra. As festival season approaches, we predict glitter will be a main course on the makeup menu.
