Holographic makeup has been an Instagram trend for a while. You know, those close-up images of juicy, shimmering pouts? But how do you make holographic lip gloss work in real life? We touched on the emerging trend for shimmer makeup last year when matte textures still reigned supreme. These days any texture goes, and with spring around the corner, we've been tempted to experiment with holographic lip glosses at Byrdie HQ. A slick of holographic gloss on lips can look seriously cool when the rest of your makeup is pared back. You can even experiment with using them as eye gloss or highlighter (see the aforementioned shimmer makeup story for inspiration). Yep, lip gloss just got seriously covetable.
