We all know that life can imitate art. When it comes to beauty, though, it’s more about techniques imitating art. Think: calligraphy-inspired eyeliner, abstract nail art and, as of late, watercolor eyeshadow. Our Instagram feeds have been flooded with soft, dewy, and colorful eye makeup looks that mimic the effect of colorful paintings. Scroll down for seven mini masterpieces that are perfect for warm weather seasons.
1. Holographic Gloss: This look combines two of our favorite trends: watercolor eyes and glossy lids. The wet finish on the holographic purple and blue hues look stunning paired with barely there blush and a soft lip. (via Nicolas Coulomb)
There’s no shortage of ways to braid your hair — we can think of at least 100 off the top of our heads. There’s one style in particular that seems to be blowing up our Instagram feeds as of late, however: corset braids.
A surprise is the spice of life. Take your cues from these off-duty models and revel in the ephemerality of a rainbow. A little bit of colour never hurt anyone.
Colour your life using M.A.C eyeshadow in Ruddy, STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid eyeliner in Turquoise, HOURGLASS Girl Lip stylo in Lover and TOM FORD Sheer Cheek duo in Paradise Lust.
In case you thought you were fresh out of ways to style your face, there's a new revelation in the too-cool-for-spool saga. Enter: Barbed wire brows, the badass cousin of the recently-hatched feather brows.

And who's complaining? Any trick to disguise those rogue morning hairs (or the undeniable wreckage the week before I see my brow guru) is welcome here.
ICYMI, Clarisonic recently introduced a brand new device, the Smart Profile Uplift, a souped-up face massager designed to fight 15 signs of aging. How does a massage improve the look of skin? The vibrating applicator–27,000 micro-massages per minute–stimulates collagen regeneration and strengthens the skin. It also claims to help any creams, oils, and other treatments penetrate deeper into the skin. Each treatment takes just three minutes a day in 30-second intervals per area on your face and neck (it beeps when it's time to move to the next area).
When Starbucks announced it would be releasing a Unicorn Frappuccino (for a limited time only), the Internet went wild. But given the world’s obsession with anything unicorn-inspired and how Instagrammable the pink and blue drink is, it wasn’t surprising.
What did surprise us, however, is the beauty look this viral beverage inspired — a hairstyle resembling the blue and pink drink, green straw included.
