Rainbow Brights

It's Holy Thursday and I'm stuck here at home doing nothing, making the most of my stay-cation and hiding from burning rays of the sun. I decided to play around with make up and wanted to do something bright and summery. I ended up doing a little something I call "Rainbow Brights", taking inspiration from the 6 colors of the rainbow.

I Used:

  • Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
  • Beauty Cosmetics 4 Wheel Concealer Palette (I used the white shade as eyelid base color)
  • Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette
  • Nichido Intense Color Eye Pencil in Metal Blue
  • ELF Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Estee Lauder Magnascopic Mascara in Black

The Base:
1. Prime lids with eyeshadow primer.
2. Apply matte white eyeshadow all over lids, from lashline up to browbone. A matte white eye pencil can also be used.

The Colors:
1. Apply the first color, a matte bright yellow onto the inner eyelids

2. Apply a matte green shadow from where the yellow stops, and up until you're about halfway through the eye.

3. Select a light orange shade, apply it next to the green

4. Using a small/fine-tipped eyeshadow brush, take a red color, apply it next to the orange, and pat it on the eye's outer V. Then with a very light hand, draw a line on top of all the other colors. Make sure that the red line is really, really subtle.

5. Using a slanted brow brush or any fine-tipped eyeshadow brush, take a purple color and make a small line beside the red color. Apply the same purple color all the way down to the lower, outer lashline.

6. Using a blue eye pencil (I used the one by Nichido) line the inner lower lashline and blend with the purple color. Go over the blue eyepencil with a pale blue shadow to soften it.

7. Lightly blend everything together.

8. Line eyes with black eyeliner and apply mascara.

And that's it!

Hope you enjoyed the look, message me if you have any look requests/suggestions! :)
