We’d be lying if we said the word ‘glitter’ didn’t send a little shudder down our spines. Yes, rubbing Barry M glitter pots all over our face worked when we were eight years old, but surely you can't pull it off when your age reaches double figures?! That said, with so much of it on the SS17 catwalks, glitter is having a grown up moment.
