From the gorgeous to the gloriously weird, we usually love any viral Instagram beauty trend that comes our way. First, feline flicks were being switched up for candy-cane eyeliner for Christmas (hyperlink), which set all of the festive season beauty goals. Then, just as we thought it couldn’t get any better, we saw beauty looks that had been inspired by our favourite mythical creatures… UNICORNS!

The look itself is flexible – you can be as subtle or as extravagant as you like. But there are a few rules…

1. Use as much colour as you can

2. Add glitter wherever possible

3. Create an extra mystical look by outlining the unicorn horn with liquid eyeliner
