Rainbow Eyeliner Tutorial
Sometimes you don’t feel like the average, everyday eye makeup. Especially for a special occasion, it’s fun to experiment with color and play around with makeup! This rainbow eyeliner tutorial will teach you how to create a dramatic and fun eye makeup look, perfect for Spring!
Start off by covering your eyelid with a matte nude eyeshadow. Since the lower lid will be the focus of the look, we want everything else to be simple. If you don’t happen to have a matte eyeshadow, concealer or foundation will work perfectly.
To prepare your lower lid for the eyeliner, take a small concealer brush, dip it in foundation, and apply it into your waterline. This creates a base for the colorful eyeshadow and helps it stay put.
I chose to use colors reminiscent of a peacock feather, so for this look I used blue, green, teal, and purple. However, you can use whatever colors suit your fancy!
Take an angled eyeliner brush and dip it in your first color, in my case purple. Apply it from the inner corner of your eye to just a little bit further in. Use the brush to apply the color both on the waterline and to smudge it a little bit further down so that the color is more visible.
Continue this step with 3 – 4 different colors until you have reached the outer corner of your eye. Don’t be scared to blend the colors as this creates a cool watercolor effect.
To further accentuate the eye, use the same eyeliner brush to apply a black gel liner to your upper lid. For a dramatic look, pull the color all the way from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. Don’t be afraid to make the liner a little bit thicker than you would for a natural eye as this makes it look more dramatic.
To finish the look, apply a white cream shadow both to the inner corner of your eye and to your brow bone. This makes the eye pop. Just add a coat of mascara and you are ready to go!
To finish the look, I usually apply a nude lipstick so that the eyes are the focus. This makeup look is perfect for a night on the town with friends. Don’t be afraid to have fun with colors and experiment with what looks best on you!
