What is Glitter?

This is an academic study of one of my favorite subjects!

Glitter is everywhere. But what is this sparkly siren that catches our eye, covers our bodies, then infects our households? In this video I will go in-depth with my explanation of the four main types of cosmetic glitter, where they come from, and the pros and cons of each.

Hey lovelies! I made my first tutorial video.

I’ve been at home for almost a year now. The precious few people who I actually come into contact with are just not interested in talking about glitter for any length of time. They certainly haven’t wanted to watch my forty-five minute slideshow about the history of glitter and its applications (hit me up after the pandemic if you want to see it). So I made a video. If anyone actually watches it I may make more. Feel free to ask questions in the comments!
