Last night, The Veronicas took Australia by storm when they performed their single In My Blood wearing what looked like nothing but glitter on the top half of their bodies.

The risque choice of outfit sent Instagram into meltdown, with some users reminding the 31-year-old artists that “glitter is not clothes.”

But perhaps the biggest question on viewers minds was: how did they get the glitter off for their appearance only moments later?

Well – it seems we finally have the answer.

Jess Origliasso took to Twitter on Thursday morning to explain the complexities that went into the now-iconic outfits.

“The ARIAS 30th awards last night was Wild!,” started Jess, who is now dating DJ and actress Ruby Rose.   

"It took the worlds best makeup and special effects team to get us ready up for last nights awards and hosting."


She then tagged the "incredible" people who put together their glitter look, and in the process, revealed the secret behind it: body paint AND latex.

"This team had 20 mins to get all the glitter off our bodies. They were incredible," wrote Jess.

Incredible, indeed.
