It's the perfect look for the holidays (although you are unlikely to wear it out unless it's to a Christmas party) and now, instead of just admiring the festive lights and baubles, you can actually transform your face into one. It's called fiber-optic makeup, and a video of this super cool look was recently uploaded to YouTube by Instructables.

Using small fiber-optic strands, LEDs to light the fibers, and several other supplies, "costume and experimental fashion designer" Mikaela Holmes, who was inspired by Christmas and her constant desire to "make things glow," managed to create a visually interesting hairpiece.

The combination of the glimmering fiber optics paired with ethereal makeup makes for a mesmerising look — which would be at home under the ocean with a sea of jellyfish or the deep sea shrimp, Parapandalas.

It's certainly one way to guarantee that you stand out from the crowd! For more, watch the video below.
