Instagram is a hotbed for creative new makeup styles, and from time to time, we here at Awkward like to showcase them for you. We’ve told you about Halo Brows, Bow Brows, and Pulled Skin Makeup, just to name a few. And in that spirit, here’s a body painting style that you’ll probably be seeing everywhere this summer: glitter butts!
Glitter butts are exactly what they sound like: a type of body art where people paint glittery underwear over their nether regions. They appeared at Coachella 2018, but they aren’t yet an Official Trend–unless Sophia Levy has her way. She’s the c0-founder of Go Get Glitter, a makeup company that first came up with glitter butts. Levy described the look thusly to Marie Claire:
“We are all about being creative, free and loving the skin you’re in, which is the message we wanted to portray to people when we created this look. So who knows—maybe jewel underwear will be the next trend?”
So, do you hate being able to sit down? Do you wish your life involved a lot more chafing? If so, glitter butts are for you!
