It seems we will still be sparkling come summer, so buy quality now and stick with it
Under usual circumstances, one might see glitter as purely seasonal, its reign at a single New Year’s Eve party making it as long term an investment as a novelty reindeer jumper. But this year is different. Many designers showed glittery eyes on the catwalks and then did the unthinkable – they carried them through to 2020.
It seems we will still be sparkling come summer, so buy quality, now, and stick with it: it’s less wasteful. And while the glitter of recent years involved six eyeshadows, architectural brows, feline flicks, four brushes and a pair of falsies (thanks Instagram), the modern sparkle is easy. No complex blending – just as little or as much as you fancy, pushed into moisturised eyelids and beneath the lower lashline. Armani showed the merest scattering of chunky sparkles placed haphazardly with zero regard for symmetry, while Fendi’s silver glitter looked as though it had been applied while drunk and then left on for the hangover. Just one product and mascara will do the lot.
