If I’ve learned anything from 2016, it’s that everything is awful, but unicorns seem to be really in. Maybe we are all hung up on the idea of something mystical to distract us from our stressful lives, or maybe we just love the sparkly and shiny look of unicorns. Well, if you’re wondering how to incorporate that ~sparkly and shiny~ look into your daily life, it’s time for you to check out the holographic makeup trend. Holographic makeup is shimmery and shiny, but can also be metallic and totally bad ass. It really is an awesome trend that looks great on everyone. Although we can’t all actually be unicorns, we can totally use makeup to give us a unique look that will make every unicorn envious. Are unicorns even real? Who am I to decide?
