The last wedding I went to, the bride had loaded so much glitter onto her upper body that everyone she came into contact with, including her groom and the vicar, ended up covered in it. By the time we reached the reception, half the guests resembled a disco ball. That’s the problem with glitter – it’s OK for the dancers on Strictly but strictly too full-on for brides.
A way more subtle and pretty way to go is care of this lust-have shimmer powder from Givenchy. Different size pearlescent particles ‘pouf’ across your skin to create a soft silver halo over your shoulders, décolleté, back and arms. Apply after moisturising and before stepping into your dress for skin that softly sparkles rather than spoils your H2B’s morning suit. And how glamorous is the sleek black atomiser bottle? I love.
