If we’re not obsessing over unicorn beauty products and mermaid makeup brushes, we’re thinking about all of the ways we can wear glitter. That has resulted in the rise of glitter brows, glitter roots and even glitter armpits. And if you thought that the last one was unique, just wait until you see the latest glitter beauty trend: glitter tongues.

There have been a few #glittertongues floating around social media, but the trend has recently started to take off. Allure reports that the rise in sparkly tongues can be attributed to makeup artist Jacinta Vukovic. According to her Instagram post featuring a shimmering tongue, the look was accidentally created when some sparkles mistakenly got onto her tongue when she was creating a metallic lip.

What's your point?

Clearly everyone else is embracing the look because glitter tongues are popping poking out all over Instagram. Some just have a light dusting of glitter while others have such a thick layer that you cannot even see the tongue underneath. Some glitter tongue looks use classic silver or gold glitter while others take things up a notch with rainbow glitter or sparkles in varying shapes and sizes.

Obviously the trend isn’t the most practical of looks. No one wants to be walking around with a glitter tongue hanging out of their mouth. Not to mention that eating and drinking would be impossible. But if you’re looking to try out a new beauty look on Instagram, the glitter tongue could be just the thing.
