How To Wear Glitter Beauty And Not Look Lame
It’s possible we swear. Mainly thanks to Pat McGrath's expertise.
Party season equals glitter. There’s no way around it. But the problem with glitter is that it can have the tendency to make the wearer look a bit… lame.
Avoid looking like you’re part of a 70s dance troupe with our easy peasy guide...
Thanks to make up legend Pat McGrath glitter lips are legitimately a THING. Bella Hadid’s glittering red Versace pout kicked things off. The model then went on to rock a darker sparkle for Fendi.
Another Pat McGrath win, this time Cleopatra-style golden eyes on Kim Kardashian. This look is more molten gold than a scattering of disco glitter. Intensify your pigment by applying it with a wet brush onto glossed lids. For a more wearable look, skip the golden brows and tone done the eyeliner. But go all out with the gold shadow.
Or take a super silver shadow and press into the inner corners of the eyes for a wide-awake party babe look like Gigi’s. Yet another Pat M score. She’s officially the queen of glitter.
