Death, taxes, pi — some things are forever. But on the brighter side, so is the magic of unicorns. And the beauty world is here to prove it. (See:
unicorn braids and hair color.) But if styling your hair like a magnificent, otherworldly beast isn’t enough, you can also inject unicorn enchantment into your skin-care and makeup routine, too. There are a whole lot of highlighters, lip glosses, and eye creams out there to help us capture the rainbow with iridescent formulas that recall David Bowie in Labyrinth. (The spirit of Bowie is a unicorn in itself.) Some even take the theme to new heights with horn-shaped handles. And if unicorn beauty can bring a touch of the mystical to getting ready in the a.m. or before bed, why the hell not, we say. Ahead, the most fantastical, magical beauty products to make your beauty look, bathroom, and life sparkle.
This may be the quickest way to get nails that shine with the iridescent glow of a unicorn's spiral horn. But just because the color is sweet, doesn't mean it's not bottled with a little sass. Case in point: Its shade name is Boy, Bye.

heavy-duty cleansing towelettes
on hand though; things could get messy.
