The Independent Culture
Along with other relics from Glam Rock, glittery make-up has spent a few years in the wilderness. But with the release of 'Velvet Goldmine', a eulogy to all things Glam, it's about to make a comeback. The least obvious way to reincorporate glitter into your make-up is to use a little sparkly gel on neck, arms or decolletage. For a real disco-dolly look, smear thickly all over your eye lids, brows and lashes. Our favourite, though, is glitter nail varnish - like having a fistful of mini mirror-balls
