Does anyone else love sparkly unicorn makeup?
One Saturday afternoon. I was trying out “Snappees”, a hair tie brand made specifically for kinky, curly, coily hair. I decided to put my hair up in a faux hawk. It hits me—- this would be a perfect time to try out a unicorn inspired look. I pulled out all my favorite pastel and sparkly makeup to create this whimsical look.
A Strong Foundation
Every good look starts with a good base. I used my Hydrating Calendula Face Cream and Age Reversist Eye Cream from Farmasi’s Dr. C Tuna line. I followed with my Farmasi VFX Pro strobe cream primer. The base of my face is VFX Pro Camera Ready foundation is a mixture of shades 8 & 9. I used Farmasi’s Stay Matte foundation in shade 105 as a brightening shade under her eyes.
Have you seen a unicorn lately?! They have some sculpted cheekbones. I wanted my unicorn look to be authentic, making a fierce contour absolutely necessary.
My Farmasi 3-In-1 Face Palette was my go to product to bring this look to life. I used the contour shade to chisel my face and give it dimension. You’ll want to apply the contour below your cheekbones. Then I used the palette’s blush and followed up by sweeping the highlight shade over my cheek bones.
Then I turned an everyday face into a unicorn.
I started with Farmasi’s Eclipse pigment powder. This will cover the entire lid. Eclipse is a beautiful blue shade. The shade is not quite a powder blue but it plays really well with pastels.
Then apply the Violet pigment starting in your inner eye. You’ll end up covering about 2/3 of your lid.
I used 3-In-1 Palette’s (it’s literally SO versatile) highlight shade. Use a fluffy blending brush to apply it under your eye brow and in your crease. You’ll blend it out so that it creates a pretty gradient effect with the pigments.
I took pencil eye liner to make the look POP just a bit more. My pencil liner was a silver color. I’d suggest that or a white liner. You’ll smudge the liner into your upper and lower lash line.
I figure that real life unicorns are pretty active. Think about it: they’re always flying and running through meadows. So a quality waterproof mascara is a MUST. I used my BE FIT mascara on my upper lashes.
I lined my lips with Farmasi’s 226 lip liner. It’s a pretty purple lip pencil. You’ll want to line your entire lips. Then I put on a Miss Sparkle lip gloss in the shade of Honey Pot.
If you’re gonna be a unicorn for a day, you have to take really level up your level of sparkle.
I finished my look with more concealer. You’ll use your brightening concealer over your the bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow, forehead and chin. Then put your highlight over these areas using a fan brush. Take the Lavender pigment and sweep it over your cheek bones using your fan brush.
And voila! Ladies, you have a unicorn.
