Make Up Look: Rainbow Eyeshadow

The Handmade Illuminating Rainbow Highlighters by BitterLaceBeauty have thrown the makeup world into a bit of a rainbow frenzy. My favourite type of rainbow make up is rainbow eyeshadow.

IMG_04451To achieve this look I used the Chi Chi O.M.F.G palette. I also used a Chi Chi black eye liner. The mascara is the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara and the brows and highlight were both done with the Sax Essential Brow Shaping & Defining Kit. I also used the Art Deco eyeshadow base to prime the eyelids. To apply the shadows I started with red at the corner of the eye using a small Artiste eye shadow brush, sticking the colour on and keeping the brushing minimal on both the lid and below the lid, making sure to match the colours exactly in both places. After each colour I quickly ran the brush lightly under water to clean the colour of, towelled it dry, and then applied the next colour. This is particularly important when the next colour is lighter such as with yellow. I then applied mascara on upper and lower lashes and mascara to above the lashes, on the water line and slightly below the water line. To blend out any eyeshadow above the lid I used a white highlighter above the lid, to the brow and added a little dark brown shadow to the brows to give them more definition.

The mascara in this one is Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and the brows as again the Sax Essential Brow Shaping & Defining Kit. And the lids were primed with the Art Deco eyeshadow base. A small Artiste brush is again used for the lid, with a larger shadow brush being used for above the lid. Start with the yellow in the corner of the eye and pack on the colour. Then sweep the blue/green shade across the rest of the lid. Underneath the lash line use feathery strokes to apply orange to one side and pick to the other. The buff out any excess colour beyond the lid up to the brow with a light brown or skin coloured shade and highlight just underneath the brow with a white highlighter. Finish by applying mascara to lashes and eyeliner to above the lashes, on the water line, and slightly below the water line.

Have fun and get creative
