grown-up glitter

"and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. those who don't believe in magic will never find it."

this season, glitter is no longer a sprinkle of fairy dust over existing makeup. it is to be worn in solid blocks, most elegantly on the eyes. sparkly substances have appealed to the human eye since 40,000 bc with flakes of mica being found on cave paintings. experts say glistening surfaces draw an emotional response from the limbic system, the brain's most fundamental level. some application suggestions include:
- trace a brightly coloured line of glitter over black eyeliner
- sweep a gel glitter layer over mascaraed lashes - "the sparkle only when you blink (is) incredibly alluring," says david horne
- black glitter in black liners or brow powder can be super subtle, just like nude or pale gold glitters in lipgloss
- pat mcgrath gave the models glittery tears at galliano
- apply before dressing and always have a lint roller on hand
