8 Holographic Makeup Products We Can Actually Get Behind

Updated 04/22/19

There’s no denying that beauty trends have gone the sci-fi route. Just one scroll through Instagram and you will likely see a plethora of unicorn makeup posts along with an alien selfie or two. And while these holographic beauty trends might be popular on social media, they aren’t the most wearable when it comes to everyday life. Or are they? While the full-on unicorn look might be a bit much for the office, there is a way to incorporate the best holographic makeup products into your beauty routine without looking extraterrestrial.

The trick is to rock just one iridescent product at a time.
