ICYMI glitter may look pretty, but it's pretty darn bad for the environment and that makes us (and Leo Dicaprio) very, very sad.

We might have grown fond of the multicoloured plastic flecks being Vaselined to every inch of our body, making us feel 1000% sassy (and a little bit basic) in the process, but don't worry. We're not going to leave you in a sad glitterless world. There is already a new alternative on the block, and we promise it's equally as dreamy.

Prepare yourselves: you can now make your face sparkle through the sophisticated embellishment of pearls. Some would describe this as opulent. Simply put, it's classy AF.

The beauty look was first showcased at the Gucci Cruise 18 show, which saw pearls being adorned to girls faces in numerous ways: from understated hair beads, to full-on dazzling headgear.

Obviously, it looked magical. So it was only a matter of time before Instagram started experimenting with the new shimmering material.

And guess what? Good news! Anything glitter can do, pearls can do better.

Firstly, if you thought glitter lips were a bit of a bother, pearl lips would be a bloody commitment. However, Insta famous MUA Vlada Haggerty has got us 100% willing to stick those iridescent balls on our lips.

You can even make your winged eyeliner 3D by sprinkling on some dainty and chic jewels. The trend is picking up quick because pearl tears are even a thing already.

Finally, if you are really feeling brave you can dress up your brows, a la Gucci (or Guccy). Use them as hair beads or, if you want to reach real fancy-pants perfection, just cover your entire face. Casual.

Pearl make-up is sure to make you feel like a IRL Princess, rather than a hot unicorn mess. Sorry glitter, your time is up.
