16 Holographic Makeup Looks To Try Right Now

BSo, you want to be a mermaid or a unicorn, do you? Join the club. You’re in good company because there are lots of people here. If you’re looking for something to channel your inner unicorn or mermaid that doesn’t involve a Halloween costume or a rainbow hair color, I would like to suggest holographic makeup.

Not to be confused with glitter or shimmery makeup, holographic makeup has a gorgeous color shift that resembles a hologram. (Hence the name.) For extra shine, the look can still have sparkles.

Not that long ago, creating a holographic look would involve layering different makeup products together to create the effect yourself. With today’s latest formulas, you can create a prismatic look with just a couple of duo-chrome holographic products.

If you’ve been eyeing holographic lipsticks and eyeshadows in the makeup aisle, but aren’t sure how to use them, you’ve come to the right place for inspiration. Here are 16 extra holographic makeup looks that will make you feel like a unicorn:

1. Pale Purple Lipstick And White Eyeshadow

The light eyeshadow works nicely with the pale purple lipstick.


2. Holographic Purple Eyes And Blue Lipstick
