Here Are the Beauty Products That Allow You to Do Glitter in a Grown-Up Way

Glitter MakeupThere is a huge glitter trend in beauty at the moment. Normally sparkly makeup looks become popular for the holiday season or for festivals before they fade away, but they have been very popular during the dull days of winter. Recently, we’ve seen glitter lips, glitter-dipped fingers, glitter roots, glitter freckles and even glitter armpits leave their shimmery mark on the beauty industry. If you want to add some sparkle to your beauty look, but you aren’t ready for something as extreme (and itchy) as glitter armpits, there are other more subtle ways to incorporate it. With the right products, you do not have to worry about looking like you were glitter-bombed.
