Glitz & Glitter

Glitter’s beginning was far from chic: On a New Jersey cattle farm in 1934, machinist Henry Ruschmann figured out how to mass-produce the substance by grinding up large sheets of plastic. Now it’s a fashion week backstage hero.

At the fall 2009 shows, touches of glitter lit the runways—from a subtle sheen on the lash line at Louis Vuitton to metallic-armored eyes at Prada, where P&G Global Design Director Pat McGrath chose a shiny-penny shade for the lids.
“Even a tiny amount of glitter can accelerate almost any makeup in an instant,” McGrath says. To make it 2010-ready, Chanel makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi says to “isolate it to one feature—lids, lash line, lips, or cheekbones.”
