Allure rounded up the five most popular makeup trends on Pinterest for the 2016 holiday season and listed holographic lips and nails as their top pick.

Holographic makeup was one of the hottest trends of 2016, with searches up 570 percent more than last year.

To try the trend, layer holographic lip glosses over lipstick or pick up a holographic lipstick to use alone. Holographic nails are a more subtle way to try the look.
