Glitter has become a key part of the millennial summer wardrobes. Whether it’s for a festival or a garden party, nothing says summer quite like adding a bit of sparkle to your face.

And one of the world's most popular glitter brands is now available in the UAE for the first time. The Gypsy Shrine, founded by Jenner Meek back in 2016, specialises in face gems, glitter and metallic make-up.

The Gypsy Shrine is a regular fixture at festivals around the world. The Gypsy Shrine 

Environmentally friendly

The Gypsy Shrine also has a range of bio-degradable and vegan friendly glitters, offering an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional glitters.

There has been growing controversy around the use of glitter in recent years, as it's classed as a microplastic. This means that once glitter is washed off, it enters the environment and inevitably makes its way into the food chain. Many scientists put it in the same category as microbeads, which have now been banned in a number of countries around the world, including the UK.

As a result, many brands like The Gypsy Shrine are making their glitters bio-degrabable.

The Gypsy Shrine specialises in glitter and face gems, and also has a biodegradable range. The Gypsy Shrine

The Gypsy Shrine will be available at all major Topshop stores in the GCC region, including the branches in The Dubai Mall and Yas Mall. Prices start from Dh60.
