If you’re walking along the beauty aisles wondering if the glitter trend will ever be over, sorry fam, I’m here to tell you that it isn’t. We may be well into March but the sparkle party continues in our makeup bags. And it looks like it won’t be over next season either as proven on the A/W 2018 runways. Tom Pecheux sent down models with cheekbones brighter than the future at Chanel, Pat McGrath took glittery lips to new heights at Maison Martin Margiela with a stunning galaxy-esque iteration, and Val Garland, ever the innovator, showered models with glitter from the crown down to the nose and Cupid’s Bow at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. But our fave look is the all out KiraKira face at Giambattista Valli (also by Val Garland. Boy, do we want her to do our night-out looks!), a breathtaking surprise against the wintery colour mood of the clothes. Forget ‘hints of shine’, it’s time to embrace the sparkle whole-heartedly. It’s fun, extremely eye-catching at night and in day light, looks incredibly pretty when the sun hits. Scroll down for a round-up of the most #extra KiraKira makeup along with swatches. Shine on, sister. No app necessary.
