Considering we see life through filtered lenses everyday now, it makes perfect sense that technology also serves as legit beauty inspo. Case in point: my favourite Insta-Story face filter. The one I personally like to call ‘The Sparkly Supermodel.’ It’s the filter that instantly gives you glittery, golden eyelids, smoothed out, perfected skin that emanates radiance to the gods and a shiny, red-tinted pout. Kind of like the golden wreathe filter, but better. It’s honestly the perfect filter (Instagram, if there’s an official name for this please slide into my DMs and tell me) to make you feel pretty AF without distorting your every feature to look like a whitened, CGI Barbie/Manga hybrid. While I think facial-enhancement apps can be unhealthy to some degree (remember that nearly everything on the internet is edited, you’re no less amazing than the person you consider #goals), I have to admit whoever came up with The Sparkly Supermodel has got their makeup look on point.
Shimmery eyes, glowing skin, tinted lips…sounds great to me! It’s also relatively easy to achieve IRL. Here’s everything you need to look as lit as your Insta-filter on your next night out. Or day. Just do you and the double taps will come.
