Glitter might feel as if it should exist solely on TikTok or during Halloween, but model Rafa Consentino together with makeup artist Tobi Henney have us convinced otherwise.

On a recent post shared to her Instagram, Henney showed us three images of Consentino with tiny glitter stars scattered across her lips and mouth. While the placement is slightly off in the context of real life, the look itself was not. Paired with a thick, fluffy brow, bare skin and a soft lash, it was pretty much exactly how we want to look in the party-filled years sure to follow the pandemic. Bold, brazen and just a little bit over the top.

Henney didn’t share the exact products used to create the below, but we’ve curated a few of our favourite grown-up glitter makeup buys for your shopping pleasure.
