You know when you’ve been sitting on the beach all day and you stand up to find sand all over your butt? Artist Mia Kennington knows that feeling so well that she was inspired by the sandy-butt look and decided to take it one-step further with glitter.
That applying glitter on yourself is truly an art, so follow Gypsy Shrine’s helpful tips if you’d like to recreate the look.
Mia cho rằng việc phủ kim tuyến lên bề mặt mông là một nghệ thuật vì nó đòi hỏi sự khéo léo nhưng bạn vẫn có thể tự tạo nên tác phẩm độc đáo cho mình bằng những tips sau đây.
Paint your booty. You can start with body paint if you want a base color or jump right to the glitter application. Gypsy Shrine’s secret sauce is VO5 Perfect Hold Styling Gel. Mia says the artists coat the skin with the hair gel first.
Pack on the glitter. While the gel is tacky, use a paintbrush to press on liberal amounts of glitter. Mia says chunky glitter, like the cosmetic-grade glitter Gypsy Shrine makes, works best.
Add gems. If glitter isn’t enough for you, use body adhesive to add gemstones to the area. Gypsy Shrine also sells self-adhesive jewels to make it easier.
Set it. You can also skip this step, but Mia recommends spraying a fixative, like hairspray or makeup setting spray for extra hold.
So there you have it! Now you’re set to glitterfy yourself head to toe for your next festival. Thank me later.
