Tutorial: Colourful Rainbow Eyeshadow Look


I previously did a rainbow look in 2010, here.
(I don't know why I didn't blog about it.... I was trying to look for the post!!)

This variation is more subtle since I'm only focusing the colour along my upper lash line.
I like both looks though!

Now the tutorial begins!

Step 1:
Start with bare lids.
I didn't use any primer since the jumbo eye pencil I'll be using kind of acts like one!

Step 2:
Cut a 2~3cm piece of sticky tape and stick it where you would like your eyeshadow to wing out.
I aligned it so that it was on the same angle as my lower lash line!

Step 3.
 Using a white base, I'm using NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil..

Line along your lashline, this will be the base of you eyeshadow so it will be completely covered!
You don't have to be too careful since you can remove the unwanted base after this step.

I lined my upper eyelid how I wanted my eyeshadow to wing out, apply it like you would with liquid eyeliner, but thicker! 

Step 4.
 Using makeup remover with a Q-tip, 

Clean out the edges so it's soft and straight.
My makeup removed is oil based so I dabbed my eyelid with a tissue so it wasn't slippery anymore.

Step 5. 
 Now grab all the colours you want to use! I used the colours of the rainbow, in that very order.
So from the inner corners of my eyes Red>Orange>Yellow>Green>Blue>Purple

I started with red in each corner and with each colour I added, I patted it onto the previous colour softly so it would create a gradient effect.

Step 6. 

 Once your satisfied, clean up any unwanted eyeshadow fall out and remove the tape! 
Yay, a nice clean pointy line!

Step 7.
 Line eyes, apple white eyeliner to your bottom water line, apply mascara to bottom lashes, curl and apply falsies!

You're done!!!

Yay! I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and found it useful.
