As Paris Hilton once said, “Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins.” Is this true about you? About your daughter? Even if you haven’t always been a glitter queen (or princess), chances are you have either been dabbling a bit with glittery makeup, or you are considering this new look for 2018. Fashion trends are cyclical. And in recent months, the 70s and 90s have been making a comeback in a big way. It’s no surprise then that sparkles, glitter, and all-things twinkly are back in style.
Glitter makeup is fun, festive, and catches the eye. It can be used alone, or with color and even yummy scents. Glitter is easily affordable but gives off a glint that looks appealing, fancy, and super special. Is it any wonder that school-age girls are all over this youth-appropriate makeup craze? In fact, the trend has recently transcended the school halls and has been showing up all over high fashion runways in recent months (even Coach and Gucci). So how can you and your daughter take advantage of this fun, fashionable, and affordable trend? We have a few ideas.
1. Combine with a Subtle Scent
There are countless ways to incorporate glitter into your look, and here’s one that works for both mom and daughter. For some occasions, you want to go big and bold with your sparkly looks (for instance, for a special night out or a birthday party), and there are other times when you might be trying for a more understated effect. If you’re after the latter, you can find that oh-so-popular look you’re going for by using a shimmery glitter body spray. Our Frozen Body Glitter Spray, for instance, has been so popular in recent months that it’s currently sold out. However, the subtle shine and light bubblegum scent in our Disney Princess Body Glitter Spray will be just the thing for your daughter to spritz whenever she wants to feel special.
2. Put Some Twinkle on Your Tips
Practicing and playing around with nail art is a wonderful way to bond with your daughter if you’re into expressing yourselves through colorful fashions. Choosing nail colors with a bit of sparkle is all the rage in 2018, and combining the trend with cool, metallic stick-on nail gems and non-toxic polish is even better. Snag everything you need to get started from our Tangled Glitter Sparkle Nail Art Set.
3. Hair-Dos with Dazzle
For a glitzy look that will work for school, play, formal events, or anywhere in between, incorporating glitter accessories, rather than makeup, is a flexible, easily updatable way to try the glitter trend. No doubt your daughter loves the colorful, musical Trolls Movie, and the wacky way they do their hair, and you probably do too (more 90s nostalgia, right?)! Take a page out of the Trolls’ hairstyle book and try our Trolls Glitter Hair Bows clipped into your daughter’s favorite ‘do.
