A galaxy-inspired makeup collection may sound like something only the most daring of makeup-wearers can pull off, but we’re here to tell you that’s far from the truth. Galaxy makeup, also known as holographic makeup, hasn’t become one of the biggest beauty trends because it only suits a select few. Its popularity has steadily climbed because it allows everyone to branch out of their cosmetic comfort zone—without taking things too far out of this world. The L’Oréal Paris Galaxy Lumiere collection is here to do just that, allowing you to update your makeup looks while remaining suitable for every day wear. Isn’t that the dream? The collection is comprised of three highlighters, four lip glosses, and three eye shadows—and we’re breaking down how to use each of them below.

1. How to Use a Holographic Highlighter

When it comes to holographic makeup, highlighter is a clear place to start. The trendiest of makeup trends, topping your cheeks with a holographic shimmer is always a solid choice. The L’Oréal Paris Galaxy Lumiere Holographic Highlighter, available in Galaxy Gold, Astro Blue, and Cosmic Pink, is perfect for doing just that. To rock an other-worldly, radiant highlighter, you’ll need to begin by finishing the rest of your makeup. Everything else should be kept simple, allowing your illuminated cheekbones to steal the show. Try using radiant finish makeup, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, to ensure your luminous highlight is given extra emphasis. Once you’ve finished applying foundation and concealer, you can glide the highlighting stick of your choice above your cheekbones and use your fingers or a makeup blender to soften any harsh lines. Of course, your cheeks aren’t the only place that can benefit from the holographic highlighters—they’re perfect for giving your eyes, lips, and body an instant glow, too. Talk about a multi-tasker!

2. How to Use a Holographic Lip Gloss

Chances are, if you have even a basic interest in makeup—which you must, if you’re here—you already know how to apply lip gloss. That knowledge will come in handy when putting on a holographic lip gloss, since it’s essentially the same. The L’Oréal Paris Galaxy Lumiere Holographic Lip Gloss, available in Opal Light, Ethereal Gold, Polaris Pink, and Sapphire Star, can be worn both on its own or as a top coat for a multitude of effects. If you prefer to wear your lip gloss alone, it’s as easy as that—just pucker up and swipe it on your lips. To use one as a top coat, start by applying a lip liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner, and a lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick. When you’re finished prepping your pout, go ahead and add a layer of holographic lip gloss on top. For the appearance of plumper lips, you can also apply a little lip gloss solely to the center of your lips, as the shine will catch the light and make your lips look bigger.

3. How to Use a Holographic Eye Shadow

If you’re still slightly wary about attempting full-blown holographic beauty looks, eye shadow may be the perfect way to introduce yourself to the trend. If shadows with a touch of shimmer or glitter are already in your collection, ones with holographic pigment shouldn’t be too big of a stretch. That’s right, you can ease yourself into the trend by rocking holographic pigments on your eyelids. The L’Oréal Paris Galaxy Lumiere Holographic Eye Shadow, available in Full Moon, Moonkissed, and Crescent Moon, can be used in a variety of ways, all with the same end game—adding dimension and shine to your eye makeup look. And who wouldn’t want that? Try applying the lightest shade below your brows and around the inner corners of your eyes or blend all three onto your lids for an extremely prismatic look. Top either option off with eyeliner and a coat of mascara—we suggest the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara—and you’ll look ready to board a rocket into space (or something else equally as impressive!).  

Once you’re all set with holographic eye makeup, face makeup, and lip color, continue to trend with your hair color. Check out our article, What Is Holographic Hair? Here’s How to Get the Look.
