I’ve had the idea for this tutorial in my head for ages and have finally been able to film it. This is the perfect makeup look for spring and summer because of its bright colours, but also great to wear on a cold and dreary day to add some cheer!
Rainbows are fascinating things and never fails to extract an excited gasp from me whenever I see it sweeping across the sky. There is something about it that is just so magical and beautiful (no wonder the Double Rainbow Dude freaked out – it’s just so intense!!)
I wanted to capture the enchanting colours of the rainbow on my eyes and I wanted to keep the whole look soft and cute – hence the name ‘Candy Rainbow’. I used pink eyeshadow instead of red as red is a bit too harsh. I then simply followed the order of the rainbow and applied a matching eyeshadow shade to a different section of my eye, making sure I blended each colour into the next.
For the rest of my face, I used a Barbie pink blush on my cheeks (applying sparingly) and a mineral illuminiser to highlight my cheeks and the bridge of my nose.
For my lips, I mixed together two of my OCC Lip Tars – Interlace (subtle peach neutral) and Trollop (pink cranberry coral) This resulted in a gorgeous soft pink lipcolour, which I applied with a lipbrush.
Watch out for my review on Lip Tars sometime soon cos I’m totally obsessed with them!
And finishing off the post with some photos of my colourful rainbow nails! It’s a fun, quirky way to add some pops of colour.
A simple white shirt like the one I’m wearing complements the makeup nicely. With this look, make sure you keep the colours in your outfit to a minimum so that it doesn’t take the focus away from your rainbow eyes.
