Festival season is well underway, and if you've been stocking up on fringed T-shirts, denim cut-offs and floral crowns at Topshop, be sure to stop by its beauty counters as well to pile some glitter into your shopping cart. With four kinds of options available — eye shadow, liner, loose glitter for the face and body, as well as hair glitter — there's literally no surface  you can't cover with the sparkly stuff. Not that we would advise glitter on every feature.

The best way to wear glitter on the face? Take your cue from Burberry's FW16 show and go with artistic application around the eyes, or keep it concentrated on the lids for an intense shot of colour and shine. Use hair glitter sparingly or as an accent on your braids, and punch up an otherwise glitter-free eye with a touch of sparkly liner. Less is definitely more when it comes to taking a shine to things.
