ALL HAIL THE UNICORN

Ulta Beauty's Unicorn Beauty Looks
The fantasy is real. Put some rainbows in your beauty routine.

Does your makeup bag look like it’s been hit by pixie dust? Holographic hues and rainbows of color are huge. And dabbling in them is a sign that you’re into beauty’s buzziest trend: the unicorn look.

It’s a festival obsession that’s hit the mainstream — take it as wild as you want. Start with iridescent highlighter for moonbeam cheeks. Build up to mermaid eyes. Go all out with bright, spectral hair. The thing about the unicorn look, especially opalescent shades, is that they’re universally flattering and make you look so alive.

Here are the products that will make you a believer.

PALETTES

Create a galaxy of eye color. Unicorn palettes encourage you to experiment. If you’re just starting out, try a sparkly neutral base shade and build kaleidoscopic color — celestial blues, cosmic purples, starry pinks — in your crease and outer eye. Feeling daring? Go full-on Lisa Frank with rainbow color blocking on your lid.

LIPS

Untraditional colors and lots of shimmer is the unicorn lip craze. It started with Too Faced Unicorn Tears La Crème lipstick — a pale blue that turns into an iridescent mix of purple, pink and silver on the lips. Try it and our other mythically magical picks — do light by day and dark by night.

CHEEKS

Holographic highlighters make your face look out of this world. They’re multi-tonal, which means they appear to change color depending on how and where the light hits. The transformation is subtle — think pretty shifts from pink to pearl to lavender.

EYES

Gotta have glitter. Loose shimmer and sparkle can be used anywhere — start with a little on the center of your lids. Use your finger to apply; the heat will make the glitter stick. (Don’t forget to hold blotting paper beneath your eye to catch the fallout.) Or get a glam-rock edge with glitter liner.

NAILS

The secret to fairytale nails: lots of sparkle and shine. Play with twinkling, pearlescent colors in several ways. Get artful with ombre, paint each nail a different color, or swoosh on a glitter top coat.

HAIR

Try fantasy hair for just one day. Temporary pastel color is a great way to show another side of you. It’s easy to apply, too. Just brush the compact over your hair — we recommend piecing out your hair and adding color from eye level down.
