There have been a host of strange beauty trends over the past few years. Remember when squiggly eyebrows were a thing on Instagram? And when people started adding bugs to their manicures?

Well you probably wouldn’t have guessed that the next bizarre craze would be dolphin skin. It’s not as wacky as it sounds though, as it’s essentially just an ultra smooth and glowing complexion – helped with the use of glow-boosting make-up products like highlighters.

Though they may not be actively trying to recreate the shiny skin of an aquatic mammal, the likes of Chloe Sims and Holly Hagan are at the forefront of this glossy new trend, as they often take to Instagram to show off highlighted and dewy bases.

Dolphin skin has been mentioned on blogs and websites for a few weeks now, but it’s the influencer-favourite make-up brand Iconic London who has been actively (and in the words of Gretchen Wieners) making it a thing.

The trend follows on from other similar ones like glass skin – originally a K-beauty (Korean beauty) craze – where several different skincare products are layered together to leave skin with an almost reflective sheen.
