If you have been to a festival this year, you’ll probably have noticed several people wandering around wearing ornate gem-covered designs. Well, most of them have come from one place: The Gypsy Shrine. Fascinated by the company that started the trend, I decided to ask the women behind it for their how to wear glitter and body jewels at hen dos and festivals this summer.
The Gypsy Shrine was founded by 24-year-old Jenna Meek in 2016. Her beginnings selling bags of glitter online have led to a huge company that employs more than 100 body artists and has taken over every UK festival as well as last year’s Love Island villa. (Who could ever forget that glitter party?)
Looking at the brand’s Instagram or Twitter is enough to make anyone dream of hot days spent listening to music and drinking cocktails. But I just couldn’t picture the day where I would be brave enough to decorate myself in such a way.
I asked some of The Gypsy Shrine’s staff and artists to share their top secret tips that will work for any other glitter-shy individuals as well as those who want to push boundaries with their style this festival season.
(Yes, there's a good chance you might be parading around with glitter boobs before you know it, so brace yourself.)
