Spring 2017 is all about shining! Glow like the best of them with this season’s body glitter trend.
The girly confetti is typically applied to your face to enhance that already beat glow. But wearing it in your hair, arms, chest, and even on your rear has been gaining a lot of buzz at festivals and as a daily look (the hairstyle below is often referred to as the Unicorn or Mermaid look.)
Body glitter has been spotted at festivals like Coachella, and we’re sure we’ll see it lots this summer. But you don’t have to attend a huge extravaganza in order to successfully slay.
It’s been treated so much as an accessory staple that it can be worn going out to brunch, girls day/night out, on a shopping spree, happy-hour and more.
Behold, five ways to you work the look:
1. In Your Hair
“#GlitterRoots,” which was trending on social media, shows a number of individuals from Makeup artist’s to fashionistas spreading glitter along the root of their hair follicles to add some flavor to hairstyles like up-do’s (messy bun or two-part ponytail), braids, and more.

2. On Your Body
Body art like this can be difficult to apply on (as well as remove) but makeup artist Mia Kennington of The Gypsy Shrine gives great tips and tricks so glitter won’t become a messy situation.
3. On your chest
Placing glitter directly in the center of your chest offers a pop of shine and glow. This may look best with bra tops or cut-out tops.
4. On your rear
A glittering booty will definitely turn heads wherever you step foot! Reserve this look for the beach or a festival.
5. Glitter Under The Eyes
Glitter underneath your eyes is another unique way to add some sparkle to your look. There are multiple ways you create this look: triangular shapes and oval shapes are some of the most popular.
Want to try it yourself? Makeup brand “Go Get Glitter” has a full starter kit with three color pigments, a brush and adhesive glue included. Get it here.
The Body Shop has this Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil that I’m sure will pop on melanated skin! Get yours for $22 here.
Other brands like M.A.C, NYX, Wet n Wild, BH Cosmetics and The Gyspy Shrine sell glitter pigments separately.
To wash off the artwork, use baby oil or a warm wash cloth.
