We already brought you the magic of unicorn toast, and now we want to introduce a wave of rainbow and holographic highlighters, lip glosses, eye creams hitting the beauty circuit right now that are being dubbed “unicorn makeup.” Think David Bowie in Labyrinth, and you’ll have a visual of what this trend looks like.
Aside from the cute name, iridescent shades actually have a purpose: They promise to flatter just about every skin tone. There’s the iridescent “unicorn tears” lipstick that magically suits everyone, unicorn makeup brushes that dominated Instagram late last year, and the newest universally-flattering and unicorn-themed product we’re swooning over: Becca Cosmetics‘ limited edition Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Prismatic Amethyst. It’s essentially a super-shimmery, purple-hued, $40 highlighter that launched online and in stores two weeks ago to the delight of beauty (and unicorn) obsessives everywhere. Isn’t she pretty?
In keeping with the year’s unicorn-everything theme, we rounded up a few of our favorite iridescent products trending right now. Keep scrolling to shop the most magical, unicorn-inspired beauty buys that will make your life (nails, and face) just a little more sparkly.
