We're obsessed with the whimsical eye makeup trend that basically looks like unicorn eyeliner
Warning: if you just mastered classic cat liner, this is gonna be a difficult one to take. We can’t help but be utterly impressed at the creativity of the MUA’s on Instagram. We especially love seeing cool new takes on eyeliner and this particular trend — unicorn eyeliner — looks like it takes some serious skill.
In the past we’ve seen bumpy liner and spiral liner take over our feeds, but this unicorn-inspired look is the most magical one we’ve seen in a while. It’s slightly pointed, sort of bulbous, and involves at least two liners. Needless to say, it’s not for the faint of heart. Tip: have pointed Q-tips and makeup remover on standby for your first attempt.
There’s no wrong way to do unicorn liner, here are some of our faves we spotted on the ‘gram.
Nothing says unicorn like the classic pink, purple, teal combo.
Good grief, she actually blended and sculpted every curve on the “horn?” HOW, SWAY?
Extra points for the glitter brow and lashes.
This one also has a glitter brow, but a little more subdued. So beaut.
And that pink, purple, blue liner deserves a moment this holiday season.
Two words — Lisa. Frank.
The highlight and starburst effect on this unicorn liner is absolutely gorg.
We’re thinking about pairing this beauty look with a sparkly jumpsuit for NYE for the ultimate disco vibez.
The turquoise brow makes this one even more stunning.
This black, brown combo is striking and minimal.
Plus, with these toned-down hues you can still opt for a vivid lip color.
This whole Miami Vice color story is purtyyyy.
Who said unicorns can’t be subtle?
Now it’s time to grab your favorite palette and some colored eyeliner to practice your own unicorn liner look!
