Beauty trends have gone two ways in 2017: towards redefined neutrals, like the boom over red-hued eyeshadow palettes, or they’ve cycled back to the nineties, with a particular inclination for all things shiny. Think of the loud, bright eyeshadow combinations that walked down the runways this year, flaunting more than enough shimmer to light a nation, or the seriously slick lip glosses that have been swiped off shelves. The driving force of it all is the fact that glitter makeup is back, and it’s really not going anywhere soon.
The one downside for glitter makeup is the perception that it isn’t wearable. Many think that bold shimmers are reserved for parties, or costumes, when it really isn’t the case. Before the West hopped on the beaming bandwagon, shimmery products have been a mainstay in East Asian cosmetics, especially Korean beauty, which is defined by its subtlety. Labels like Aritaum, Clio and Pony Cosmetics have perfected glittery cosmetics for everyday wear, ranging from palettes, to glosses and eyeliners. These moguls have set wearable glitter makeup in stone, so there’s no excuse for you to give this trend a miss.
