Beauty trends come and go and while some are fleeting and forgotten: the good ones stick around for good. One trend that’s stood the test of time: Dolphin Skin.

If one thing’s for certain– Dolphin Skin is here to stay and we’ll let you in on a secret… it’s a trend that originated right here at ICONIC HQ. Want in?

Here’s everything you need to know to create Dolphin Skin at home, plus the products you need and an exclusive bundle saving just for you. You’re welcome babes.  

What is Dolphin Skin?

If you haven’t heard of dolphin skin before, let us explain doll. While it might sound strange… picture a dolphin’s skin for a moment. It’s firm, dewy, ultra-hydrated and slippery smooth. Now add an ICONIC glow and you have got yourself a must-have skin finish.

Basically, dolphin skin is much like the glass skin and mirror skin trends – but focuses more on giving your skin a plump, firm, juicy-looking finish – without looking like you’re wearing loads of makeup. Sounds like the dream, right? 

It leaves your skin looking plump, smooth and bouncy-looking – with a radiant, glossy glow. And luckily for you – dolphin skin makeup actually originated at ICONIC HQ, so who better to help you get the dolphin skin look than our ICONIC experts…

How to get Dolphin Skin

So you’re ready to try the dolphin skin trend IRL? Below we’ve broken down each step so that you can glow like a pro…

Build Your Blush

Step 1: Apply three dots of our watercolour-effect Sheer Blush high on the cheekbones. A little goes a long way, and the colour is buildable, so you can start subtle if you’re using this formula for the first time or amp up the colour if you really want to create a flirty flush.

 Blend & Blur

Step 3: Using a brush, a sponge or your fingertips, blend the dots together. You’ll see how the mixture becomes a sheer veil of glowing colour on the skin. Blend and blur until it the product sits like a seamless, wet-look highlight.

Dial up the Dew

Step 4: To add an extra layer of soft-focus shimmer, spritz your finished look with our nourishing Prep-Set-Glow spray. Use long, sweeping sprays to set makeup with a glassy, dolphin-skin finish.

It’s thanks to our Iconic London babes that Dolphin Skin really took off. Our glam ICONS have been sharing their Dolphin Skin looks on social for the last couple of years and we can’t WAIT to see yours too… tag us in your looks @iconic.london so we can check out your glam.
