Step 1:

Prep your skin with our POREfessional Pearl Face Primer to help your makeup stay on all night long!

Step 2:

Use the Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer to prep the eye area. Apply it to your eyelid, under eye and take it partially down your cheek.

Step 3:

Next, take BADgal BANG! 24 Hour Eye Pencil in purple and fill in your eyelid, blending up and out to create a winged look. Then apply it to your lower lash line and blend out, giving a smoky eye look.

It’s highlighter time! Go wild and use Tickle highlighter on your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, brow bone and inner corner of your eye.

Step 8:

Then use 24-hour Brow Setter Gel and push up your brow hairs to give a fluffy, ‘soap brow’ effect.

Now for the fun bit! Add as much glitter, sparkles and gems as you like. And a unicorn horn, of course!

Step 10:

Now to turn this cute unicorn into a scary unicorn! Take the BADgal BANG! 24 hour eye pencil in black and outline the unicorn horn, using the built-in smudge brush to blend out the edges.

To finish off the look, apply some fake blood around the unicorn horn to give the illusion of it breaking through your skin.
