The internet’s obsession with unicorn everything

(Picture Credit:

Unicorn everything has been everywhere lately, even Starbucks is jumping onto the bandwagon with the Unicorn Frappuccino. We just can’t seem to get enough of food jazzed up with psychedelic dyes and accessorised with rainbow sparkles. While it may have started in the city of New York, the trend has spread far and wide through social media, hardly surprising since unicorn food was basically MADE for Instagram. But of course, unicorn food is often loaded with sugar,  more sugar and all things to avoid.

But of course, not everything unicorn is exclusively food-related, beauty enthusiasts have also hopped on the trend with unicorn hair, nails and make up. Unlike their edible counterparts, unicorn beauty won’t max out your daily calorie intake, so feel free to indulge!

If you err on the side of caution, unicorn nails are a good way to hop onto the trend without looking too outlandish.

Pretty muted pastel colours in ombre for all the shy unicorns and to inject some whimsical into your otherwise professional look.

Or a girly touch of My Little Pony’s Pinkie Pie, close enough to a unicorn!

If effeminate pastels are not for you, consider a black base with multicoloured foils instead. A black base helps the colours stand out and lends a touch of edge.

Of course, nails are not the only way that this trend has manifested itself, another way to incorporate unicorn colours into your beauty regime is through eyelash extensions.

Love how blue and pink are subtly incorporated to still keep the overall look very wearable!

If you’re game for a more daring look, opt for brighter bolder unicorn colours to glam up your eyes and help your peepers stand out.

No unicorn is complete without it’s lustrous mane. Colouring and bleaching to obtain a mane desired by unicorns requires plenty of upkeep, but these magical styles are certainly worth it.

Unicorn colours topped on platinum blonde locks will make you look exquisitely ethereal, worth the damage from bleaching!
