All that glitters...
All that glitters...

From Paris to New York, London to Milan, glitter owned the 2018 spring runways, and the shimmer didn’t stop there. Recent product launches from brands like Urban Decay suggest this trend is here to stay – at least for a while. If the glitter bug has bitten you, you’ll find loads of glitter makeup at your local beauty counter, including eyeliner, eyeshadow and even false lashes!

All eyes on you


Brushing a wash of translucent shimmer shadow across your eyelids is just one of many ways to add some sparkle to your makeup. We’ve also seen women embracing glitter in a bolder, more dramatic way, with shiny crystal embellishments placed in the eye’s inner corners.


For a truly vibrant look, the best glitter eyeshadow is Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow. Containing microfine particles of iridescence and providing creamy application, these glitter eyeshadows come in a range of colours such as soft pink, peach, granite and blue (to name just a few). For subtle shimmer, try Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin.


If you want to embrace glitter but prefer a natural look, we recommend Maybelline The Nudes Eye Shadow Palette. The palette includes 12 shades from shimmer white and bronze to deep charcoal, in a variety of matte and glitter textures and is ideal for creating a sparkling smoky eye.


A bold eyeliner is a perfect way to finish off your glitter eye makeup with a bit of drama. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Crayon has a smooth gel formulation, won’t budge for 24 hours and is available in a range of vivid colours - including electric blue and violet!



Nailed it


Get your fingers sparkling in jewel tones with a touch of glitter on your nails!


We love shimmery brights like Essie Nail Lacquer in Beach Bum Blue and Essie Nail Lacquer in It's Genius. To turn any of your favourite nail polish colours into a glittering affair, apply a top coat of Essie Set In Stones - Disco Mirror Ball Chaos.


Lip Service


Turn any lipstick into glitter, with a sparkly top coat. Urban Decay Vice Special Effects is available in 10 magnificent shades and is long lasting and water resistant.


For truly professional glitter lips, apply your favourite lip colour, then carefully use a flat makeup brush to apply a face glitter like NYX Professional Makeup Face & Body Glitter to your lips. Press your lips together to set the glitter, and you’re good to go.


Glitter is a glamorous and fabulous makeup trend, and it’s time you tried it out! If you’re feeling shy about it, remember you don’t need to go all out with glitter. Choose one feature to highlight, and let your inner disco diva shine!



2019 is the year to be daring, so there’s truly no better time than the present to embrace this cheeky yet glamourous disco diva trend.
