Unicorn highlighter might be giving you life right now, but the latest twist on the trend is perfect for summer. Forget the metallic blues, greens and violets you usually rock as part of the rainbow craze, because betty’s favourite mythical creature has been on holiday!
Yep, our unicorn has a serious sun tan. Its signature primary colours have been replaced with an iridescent mix of glistening white, candy pink, popping peach, molten bronze and glittering gold – and we’ve got just the product to make this magical make-up dream a reality.
Cult beauty brand Technic’s range of Get Gorgeous Highlighters come in five light-reflecting shades – 24k Gold, Peach Candy, Original, Bronze and Pink Sparkle. The pigment of each pot is insane and the buildable formula means you can go from subtle sheen to super-strobed in just a few layers. Our favourite way to wear them? All together!
You’ll find one of these twinkling beauties in July’s bettybox, but why not collect the full set and recreate our sun-kissed strobed look below? Here, we show you how to nail a multi-coloured, multi-layered highlight that will blow up your Instagram…
Step 1: Create a cute base. Fresh skin, glossy lids and a slick of mascara are our summer go-tos.
Step 2: Start at the bottom and use your finger to swipe a stripe of the Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter in Bronze across the underside of your cheekbone.
Step 3: Layer the Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter in 24k Gold above the first line.
Step 4: Next, use your Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter in Peach Candy to sweep a third stripe.
Step 5: Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter in Pink Sparkle makes the fourth stroke.
Step 6: For the final layer, sweep on Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter in Original.
Step 7: Use a large fluffy brush to sweep over all five shades.
Step 8: Blend into a luminous highlight that makes your cheekbones pop.
Remember, unicorns tan too!
