In the last couple of years we’ve seen glitter hair, glitter eyes and even glitter pits. So it was really only a matter of time until something like glitter tears became an actual thing. And not just any old glitter tears, but fully fledged, 3D glitter tears.

Nope, that’s not a very sad unicorn. Those are festival-inspired, sparkly makeup tears that have been carefully crafted and cultivated. They sort of add a whimsical glow to the outdoor makeup look, don’t they? Like a pixie or sprite venturing out into the big bad world and being so moved they have to cry a little.

Well here’s the great news: we too can recreate this look at home thanks to a new smudge-proof tube of glitter “ink” from Dermflage. A “Dimension Glitter Kit” retails for about 20 bucks U.S., and thanks to its easy applicator, lets you create everything from simple, single tears a la Johnny Depp in Cry Baby to more elaborate looks.

Of course you don’t need to use a tube of 3D glitter just to get glitter tears; if you’re still going for the look but don’t want to drop cash on any new products you can very well reuse your leftover glitter from that time you went for glitter brows.

Maybe keep in mind that the look seems to work best when it’s paired with an equally sparkly lid. When one is applying tears they should be somewhat uniform, after all.

Some beauty bloggers have taken a more opposite approach and created a dual look thanks to a neon-inspired lid. We have to say that both looks are equally stunning.

In all cases — 3D or otherwise — the glitter tears standout even more thanks to some dark liner and at least a couple of layers of mascara. Which maybe can be a little dark for the outdoorsy feel, but hey, something has to protect the actual eyes from all of that sparkle.

The best part about this trend, as far as we’re concerned, is that it adds a truly glam feel with as much or as little pizazz as a person feels is necessary. There’s so much potential to be creative here whether you’re going for the extreme…

Pixies everywhere, eat your hearts out. Just remember to use eye-safe glitter.
