Celebrities: They just don’t sparkle like they used to. How could they when compared to pop-culture icons of the ’90s, who spent the decade dusted in a fine layer of glitter? Mariah Carey‘s shimmery, oil-drenched legs, Britney Spears‘s sparkle-coated collarbone, even Gwen Stefani‘s penchant for expertly pairing her body glitter with her rhinestones—no amount of subtle powder highlighter can outshine the glaringly obvious.
With ’90s fads like creepers, brown lipstick, choker necklaces, and Calvin Klein underthings all getting a second, v. trendy chance at life, why not throw body glitter into the mix, for the kind of glow only copolymer plastics can create? Pick from powders, glistening oils, or if you must, “subtle” “pearly” lotions. Whatever it takes, just cover yourself in body glitter. Live a little.
