BEAUTY BAR: Grunge and Glitter

Glitter was a huge beauty trend last season. We saw everything from glitter beards to glitter brows to glitter hair parts and even glitter armpits. Everywhere we went we left a little trail of glitter behind us and we are all still trying to get those little flecks of sparkle out of the nooks and crannies of our living spaces. Glitter never goes away and it still isn’t as we head deeper into the fall season.

I caught this Fashionista on her way to a campus concert. The glitter on her cheeks was what caught my eye. “They are glitter freckles,” she told me as I was snapping her pics. “I thought they would catch the light at the concert and look really cool.”

This Fashionista kept the base of her beauty look very simple with some light foundation, a swipe of brow gel and a few coats of mascara to emphasize her long, luscious lashes. The real focus on her face were the glitter freckles. To secure the glitter to her face, this Fashionista first dotted her face with eyelash glue where she wanted to place the glitter and then she piled the glitter in her hand and then pressed it to her face.

As for her outfit, she kept it a little more classic grunge by wearing a black and white graphic t-shirt with a pair of ripped acid wash jeans tucked into a sensible and stylish pair of combat boots to keep her dancing all night long. She completed the look with a flannel tied around her waist because while it may be hot in the concert venue, the chill can be quite shocking on the walk home from the concert at the end of the night.

However, it was this Fashionista’s beauty look that really made her standout. I anticipate the glitter trend to continue to shock us all through fall and into winter too. Glitter never goes out of style.
