Let your butter come to room temperature. Beat your butter so that it's smooth and slowly whisk in your powdered sugar. Whisk until well combined.
Whisk in your vanilla extract and whisk until your buttercream is light and fluffy.
Divide the buttercream into 4 bowls and add a different color of gel food coloring to each bowl (black, pink, purple, teal).
Plop all the colors into one piping bag with a star tip, and pipe on top of your cupcakes.
Using a baking paintbrush, flick white food coloring over the tops to give a nice starstruck effect. Repeat with your luster dust. Sprinkle your edible glitter stars over the top and enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
