First, there were glitter boobs. Then glitter tears, then glitter bums.

And if we wanted to follow all of the trends at once for Glastonbury, we couldn’t leave an inch of our bodies not covered in the glittery stuff.

Or so we thought, until the latest glitter trend appeared: glitter tongues.

What's your point?

Yep – we’ve run out of external body parts to glitterfy, and now we’re doing it to internal ones.

And one of its inventors created the look by mistake.

Australian make up artist Jacinta Vukovic was doing a glittery lip look when some of the glitter fell on her tongue – but instead of washing out her mouth she decided to “embrace it”:

“I was doing this lip look and got glitter on my tongue, so I thought I would embrace it and make it the main focus,” she wrote on a post on Instagram.

It’s been a hit – with the original look getting almost 200 likes and fellow Instagrammers trying out the look themselves.

And despite its weirdness, it does look pretty cool.

Though keep in mind that while a couple of grains of glitter won’t kill you, swallowing loads of the stuff won’t be good for you – so maybe save it for the Insta-shot before thoroughly rinsing your mouth out.
