Flashback Friday: The Glitterati


glitter-cropFlashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Ewa Witkowska

The Moment: Shine Time

The Motivation: We’ve touted the merits of glitter before: The Fall 2014 shows saw the sparkly stuff applied to lip, lid, and beyond. Should you want to make an impact, we suggest taking inspiration from this image of model Ewa Witkowska and entering the extreme end of the shine spectrum. Backstage pro Pat McGrath reached for latex to adhere reflective particles to catwalkers’ eyes at Dior, but for beauty civilians, a less temperamental, metallic cream shadow provides plenty of grip. To intensify your look, brush brows up and set with gel.
