2017 was the year of the unicorn for sure…they’ve been everywhere from T-shirt’s, to coffee mugs, and even our Frappuccino’s! So it should come as no surprise that it also happens to be an excellent do it yourself costume idea!
Chances are you have most of these things lying around your house or can snag the things you’re missing for a few bucks!
Ok so first things first you need to make a horn! A piece of paper will do the trick…a glittery or metallic piece of scrapbooking paper is even better! Simply roll it into an ice cream cone shape and secure it with hot glue!
Punch two holes through each side of the end of the cone and put ribbon through it so you u can tie it around your head like a headband! The best hairstyle for this look will be pigtails or better yet twist your pigtails into double buns!
For makeup, the brighter the better! Use a bright pink blush and apply it everywhere you’d normally contour, bronze, or blush your face. This will add dimension and color in a fun way!
Added bonus points to use glitter or metallic eyeshadow on your eyes and down your hair part. I used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid from Mehron! And for the paint flecks on the forehead, dilute your shadow with setting spray and flick it onto your forehead.
Toss on your twirliest fluffiest dress or tulle skirt! And there you have it…your unicorn dreams have come true!
