Look Majestic for Halloween
Whether you love rainbows, an array of sparkles, or playing around with vibrant colors, don’t be afraid to get creative! The rise of various rainbow and unicorn-esque products from beloved brands such as Tarte or Too Faced makes achieving this look easier with a plethora of options.
If you’ve been unsure as to when you should use your favorite rainbow highlighters, this is the time to whip them out! You can totally use our personal favorites from Wet n Wild or grab one from Ulta.
Pastel pinks, blues, and purples are more commonly used in this magical makeup, however putting your own spin on it is all a part of the fun.
Other great artists found on YouTube that you can take inspiration from are Promise Phan, Shameless Maya or Charisma Star. Each with their own individual approaches and styles, you can find what best fits your personality. Promise slays the floral pastel look that could also double as a great music festival makeup. Shameless Maya’s unicorn look brings forth that otherworldly intergalactic glow with purple, golds, and glitter. A cute emoji approach was taken by Charisma Star as she masters the rainbow highlight.
While makeup is important, you can’t forget the actual costume and accessories! Etsy is a great place to find your signature horn if you want something handmade and have a bigger spending budget. However, you can feel free to DIY it by taking a trip to your local craft store. Pick up a plain headband, some light modeling clay or paper mache, and fake flowers of your choice. Pinterest is a lifesaver and has many step by step instructions for making a headpiece. Don’t be afraid to even try out a vibrant hair color or wig, as accentuates the rest of you.
Your outfit can be as wild or as tame as you want. If you want the focus to be on your gorgeous face, then you can opt for a single color like white. A cute white sundress paired with a pastel pink fur coat or floral skirt and gold top combo would be a doable yet stylish way to go. If you like being extra, you could throw in some 24k magic by adding gold bracelets or wearing some killer gold shoes. Don’t be afraid to show off your colors this Halloween and express yourself!
