Because you know you're a little bit magic.
I am obsessed with new makeup trends.
I may not wear makeup every single day of the week (I work from home, who am I trying to impress, my cat?) but when I do get a chance to, I like to go ALL OUT.
I am also obsessed with unicorns.
When I was a kid I made my mom rent The Last Unicorn so many times from our local video place that they eventually just gave it to her.
So when I learned that unicorn-inspired makeup was a new makeup trend, I knew it was a train I had to leap aboard.
What makes ordinary makeup unicorn makeup?
The key is in the shimmer!
Just like their mythical namesake, unicorn makeup invokes all things sparkly, shimmery, shiny, and iridescent!
You don't need to spend a fortune to look like a unicorn either!
I've rounded up some of my favorite unicorn beauty products to inspire you to jump into this new beauty trend, regardless of whether you want to go full-unicorn or just add a little bit of unexpected glow.

The best thing about these high quality unicorn inspired makeup brushes is that no actual unicorns were harmed in their creation. Bring magic to your every day life every single time you put on blush!
