Everyone Is Obsessed With Extra Terrestrial Makeup

We can't get enough of 2016's out of this world extra terrestrial makeup trend!

The makeup industry is being dominated by a rather unexpected trend right now… Extra Terrestrial themed makeup.

Black holes, spaceship horror movies and little green men with tripod fingers are the things that tend to come to mind when we think about extra terrestrials. “E.T. phone home” and all that, you know?

Despite this, the beauty industry is embracing all things spacey and out of this world and although it sounds completely off the wall, the trend is actually pretty beaut.

Think iridescent greens, blues, pinks and purples, graphic liner and highlighter that you could see from out of space. Yasssss.

It may be the most random makeup trend to date, but the beauty community are actually slaying it pretty hard!

For those of you who aren’t into blinding blue highlighter and metallic lips every day of the week (that would be living the dream), you’ll be pleased to know the ET trend works perfectly with both full glam and more low-key makeup looks. Meaning this is a theme you can incorporate into your image 24/7.

Cosmetic companies are fully on board with the spaced out trend, with makeup brands releasing a bunch of other worldly products at the moment.

Anastasia Beverly Hills released the insanely unique Moonchild Glow Kit earlier this year, which contains 6 completely unconventional highlighting colours – icy blue, silver chrome, purple, deep blue, sheer green and pink.

MAC are also releasing their “Live Long and Sparkle” collection in collaboration with Star Trek within the next few months, which boasts an impressive amount of ah-mazing space themed products such as a glittery purple lipglass, shimmering gold nail polish and marbled face powders.
