It’s the height of festival season and I confess, I have been bitten by the bling bug.
I know I am late to the party here folks, but like my diet coke habit, now I have started, I can’t bring myself to stop!
I have had regular glitter, gems and liquid sparkles on board at Face Ace since it began but I recently purchased some chunky glitter as I thought it would go down well with adults and older girl customers,
and with me!
For those of you not yet in the loop, chunky glitter is the funky, sophisticated older sister of regular face glitter. Celebrities and models are often seen sporting it everywhere from red carpet events to beach parties.
The particles in the product are not uniform in shape. Thus different looks can be created by layering to add texture or applying it beyond the face, into the hair for a really dramatic look.
Only cosmetic grade grade glitter should ever be used on the face. Cosmetic glitter is not made of metal and so if it goes in the eyes (care must be taken so it doesn’t), any damage is limited.
The only way to see what really works is to practice, so I had lots of fun this afternoon. I tried a scattered, paint splattered, almost punk look.
The picture below shows the glitter in different lights to give you an idea of the sparkle factor.
I loved this look, and it made me so inspired to experiment more.
As usual, if there’s anything you would like to see, comment and let me know.
