I love recreating daring makeup looks like the unicorn makeup trend of bright colours, glitters and rainbows. But it’s not exactly something you’d wear when you’re out walking the dog, is it?
How to Wear is going to be a new series on my blog, bringing those out-of-the-ordinary makeup trends into the ordinary, everyday looks. Keep reading to see how I made unicorn makeup into a wearable look!
The eye makeup is the star of the show with this one, so I wanted to keep everything else quite simple. I created a strong brow with the NYX Brow Gel in brunette and applied shadow primer as normal.
I used the Sleek I Divine Palette original to create the unicorn look on my eyes. This palette has some stunning muted bright shades, which is exactly what I wanted.
I used the purple shade Royal in my crease and on the outer corners of my eyes and packed the pink shade London Eye all my lid with a damp brush. I then took a detail brush to line the top lash line with the turquoise shade E10 and took a bit of the pale yellow Cream Tea on my lower lash line.
For eyeliner, any colourful liner will do but I used two: Bourjois Contour Clubbing Liner in Loving Green in the corners and Primark’s PS Eyeliner in Star Gazer all over my water line. I finished the eyes with two coats of Soap & Glory Thick and Fast HD Mascara.
Keeping the face makeup simple, I primed with L’Oreal Lumi Maqique for a little extra shimmer on my skin and used Avon Flawless Liquid Foundation and L’Oreal True Match Concealer in Vanilla. I applied a tiny amount of Rimmel Natural Bronzer and then dusted Soap & Glory Glow All Out powder across my cheeks.
I finished with nude lips using the Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Cream in Caramel.
