Shay Mitchell’s Unicorn Makeover Has Us Feeling Coachella Vibes
There’s still more than a week to go until all the festival fashion starts hitting your news feeds, but some celebs are already giving us sneak peeks. Ashley Graham showed off one of her Coachella looks last week, and now Shay Mitchell is serving up some SERIOUS festival beauty inspo.
The Pretty Little Liars actress, who finished filming the show along with the rest of the cast back in October (and celebrated with matching finger tats), took to her Instagram page last night with glam makeup that could only be described as unicorn magic.

A post shared by Shay Mitchell (@shaymitchell) on
Mitchell and makeup artist Ariel Tejada teamed up to create a unicorn-inspired feast for the eyes with rainbow peepers, a pink and purple braid with interwoven metallic foil, and horn-like dots that had us flashing back to last year’s Body Baubles. Dubbing the finished product the “Unicorn Barbie Festival Look,” Tejada shows us exactly how to cop the 29-year-old’s gorgeous face in an online makeup tutorial that’s as easy as it is fierce.
For the eyes, he used the Kylie Cosmetics Royal Peach Palette (sold out), her Valentine’s Day eyeshadow, and Sugar Pill Cosmetics eyeshadow in Mochi ($13) to get the perfect sherbet combo. Tejada actually forgoes any jewels or beads for Mitchell’s eclectic forehead dots in favor of a white shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette ($48). NYX Slide On Lip Pencil in Sugar Glass ($8) and Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Pink ($26) gloss her lips.
As for that glowing, dewy skin, the pro used La Mer Foundation ($110) applied with a Beauty Blender ($20), Iconic London Illuminator ($32), Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate in Intensity One ($80), and Nars Radiant Ginger Concealer ($30) to give her just the right hint of gleam.
Though we’ll have to wait ’til next week to see how she scored that fab technicolor braid, you can watch the step-by-step vid below for Tejada’s technique (and a bit of impromptu The Little Mermaid singing!).
