It started with a single sequin, sliced in half by Pat McGrath, and applied to the eyelids of Givenchy’s Spring 2012 models. The trend grew. Chanel’s Fall 2013 runway featured eyes lined in chunky bits of glitter [7-8]. Our Instagram feed flooded with Ryan Kenny’s snaps of Teresa Oman and co. running in the night, their foreheads and cheeks doused in festival-luxe tinsel. And, most recently, the new issue of Muse included Rosie Huntington-Whiteley  reflecting the sun with temples painted in opaque confetti. Glitter is back and it's everywhere (as glitter afficionado Amy Odell points out in our video, glitter has a way of spreading).
No matter the size, shape, or color of your sparkles, all you need to do is apply a thin coating of gloss to your locale of choice, and sprinkle away. (Eyelash glue might be required for heftier metallic chunks.) Start with the faintest ethereal dusting, like Karlie Kloss , or join Joan Smalls in executing your application with precision . Another option: go full-tilt, channeling your inner Beyoncé  and douse your body in iridescent body makeup (might we recommend the turtleneck t-shirt ). We’ve been kind of ready to revive that Mariah-Carey-Glitter metallic body-paint moment anyway.
