After eyes, face and cheeks, it’s time for your butt to get painted shimmery.
Yes, we are talking about the body glitter trend that is now on a whole next level, as the sparkle buffs have started a bizarre trend of wearing glittery on their butt! Fashion enthusiasts have given a shimmery twist to the phrase ‘sandy-butt’ and are smearing glitters on their bottoms. The look is simple, really: butts dipped in glitter for a sequinned, otherworldly effect.
Artist and photographer Mia Kennington who is also part of a glitter cult called ‘The Gypsy Shrine’ had been attributed to the quirky trend. The UK-based glitter squad who travel around the world and spread their glitter-love by smearing colourful shimmers on customers at various events, festivals, pop-up shops, and parties have started the campaign on Instagram. The stunning group recently added “glitter-butts” to its services after a trip to the Beyond Sahara festival in Morocco.
According to a report by the Cosmopolitan, Kennington elaborated how the crazy idea came to her. “It was a hectic day because we were glittering up everybody and also had to get content for our website. So I and artist Sophia Moreno and I just had to spark off ideas in a span of like 20 minutes. We were in bikinis and were getting sand all over our butts anyway, so we were like, ‘Well, what if we enhance this?’ So we just did loads and loads of glitter.”
