The Three stages of Glitter Makeup

As festival season is well underway, it has become apparent to the team here at TSE HQ that there are, essentially, three types of glitter-wearers. The first is the fully-fledged glitter gate go-er. These glitter geeks certainly aren’t afraid to make a sparkly statement and are confident enough to use glitter on the cheeks, the eyes, and even on the lips and brows. The second is the middle-of-the-road sparkle supporter. She, or he, is certainly not afraid to glitz it up but is perhaps a little more hesitant when venturing away from the eyes and cheekbones. And the third level of glitter wearers are shimmer seekers – not so accustomed to chunky glitter like our first and second wearers, but always on the lookout for a little more light sparkle than your average palette or lipgloss offers.

Whichever of the above you are, perhaps even a mix of two, here at TSE we appreciate your outer, and inner, sparkle. So we have taken it upon ourselves to find you the most highly-rated glitter makeup out there to suit all of your varying needs.
