Easy Unicorn Makeup Tips And Ideas.
I admire people who opt for frightening or funny Halloween costumes: Witches, Teletubbies, and the bloody Grady twins from The Shining are all classic options that make for a killer party. With that said, I don’t want to be one of them. On Halloween and a few other special days of the year, I want to look pretty. I’ve got no shame, and there’s got to be people out there like me. For anyone with intentions to slay Halloween and simultaneously look gorgeous, we’ve rounded up easy unicorn makeup tips you can do yourself, at three different levels of skill and effort. Plus, they don’t even take long to execute.
Why are people so obsessed with unicorns, you ask? Well, they’re precious, rare, mythical creatures with a luscious white mane and an unbelievable horn in the middle of their mug. Simply put, unicorns are stunning. And in a world where social media conspires to make us all look the same, every iteration of a unicorn costume can be brilliantly different, and none of them are wrong. That’s because no one has actually ever seen a unicorn. So if you welcome this prime opportunity to shine, know that you can tweak the tips below to suit your prerogative.
Smear Unicorn Poop Across Forehead
This is a magical unicorn look that literally anyone can achieve in minutes, regardless of whether you don’t like applying a ton of makeup or just feel lazy. Simply buy some sparkly Unicorn Snot and apply across your forehead, curving down to your cheeks in a big M shape. The Prima Makeup Unicorn Poop Face Body And Hair Glitter Mix, which is shown above, requires the additional purchase of a glitter gel adhesive to mix with it before applying in the same manner.
Go For Unicorn Eyes
If you have basic eye shadow application down, pony up and try this pretty eye look created by makeup artist Courtney Gargan. Here, she breaks down how to DIY it, exclusively for Elite Daily readers:
Start by spreading eye shadow primer or concealer all over from lids to the brow bones.With a medium sized eye shadow brush, brush a cream colored eye shadow all over to set. Then, sweep a pink shadow under the brows. Apply a deep red beneath the pink, towards the crease. Finish by placing a burgundy shadow in the crease only.
With a smaller eye shadow or eyeliner brush, apply a black shadow to the outside corner of the eye.
Worthy Eyes & Cheeks
If, like, you don’t want to brag but you’re actually pretty adventurous and makeup savvy, try wowing everyone in your feed with this mystical feast. Makeup artist Louise Keane, who spends her days educating YouTube followers, explains how to do it exclusively for Elite Daily:
Start by applying an eye shadow primer or base color to the whole of your eyelid. Set the base with a translucent powder.
Pick a powder highlighter that complements your face tone and apply to the brow bone.
Using an eye shadow brush, apply a bright violet eye shadow from the inner corner of the eyelid towards the halfway point of the crease, blending the color out with a horizontal motion. Take a light blue eye shadow and blend the two colors together, sweeping the blue shadow to the outer crease of the eye.
