We’ve already had glitter on boobs, vaginas, and booties. We have also had glitter on lips, beards and armpits, just to name a few. Surely there are not available body parts left, right?
In a quest to cover absolutely every part of their bodies in the stuff, the hot new trend involves dunking your tongue in brightly-coloured glitter. This is to create the ultimate Instagram worthy shot. Australian makeup artist Jacinta Vukovic accidentally got the decorative material on her tongue while trying out a new makeup look. She then posted a picture of it to her Instagram.
“I thought I would embrace it and make it the main focus,” she wrote on Instagram.

Since then, the trend has gone viral. Fellow make-up artists are attempting to recreate the glitzy mouth look. Recreating this look seems to be pretty self-explanatory. All you need is a tongue, some glitter and the desire to pour that it in your mouth. While it sounds like a bit of harmless fun, concerns are growing that the trend could be causing health problems. Although swallowing small amounts won’t kill you, it can cause problems. It can affect digestion, trigger stomach aches and even blockages.
Do you really want to have to scrub your tongue raw and still be picking particles out of your teeth days later? While having a shimmery tongue may look aesthetically pleasing in Instagram photos, it is probably best to give this glitter trend a miss.
If you do fancy giving the glitter tongue a go, we suggest opting for the edible variety like the stuff used in cake decorating or opting for a product that labels itself as non-toxic.
