Video: The Most Magical Unicorn Makeup for Festival Season

So magical. Can't look away.

Bat those unicorn eyes, my little pony! Turn heads with this gorgeous unicorn-inspired eye makeup look by Influenster’s resident makeup artist Jennifer Rostami. Note: Not all unicorns are rainbow-colored—some are regal and require rhinestones on their lids while jumping through clouds of hairspray.

Jenny achieved this look by being naturally blessed with unicorn-like features and a coarse mane. And using some makeup, of course. For those of us who weren’t born as mythical creatures, check out the video above and follow the steps below to fake it:
