Hey my loves!
Let me just take a moment to say.. WOW. Just WOW.

Easy Rainbow Inspired Smokey Eyes Tutorial
I haven't written here in almost a month now! But not because I didn't want to! Lemme explain! I had some very important events for the month of august. One of my very close friends got married and then I had this huge vacation to get ready for. I don't even know how but while I was so busy packing and shopping the entire month slipped away! I am currently on vacation and have some free time. Time enough to make a blog post so here I aaam! I've missed this beyond words can describe! So anyways with no further delay, let's get started with today's bright colourful rainbow inspired tutorial!
Rainbow Smokey Eyes
What you'll need:
  • Eyeshadow primer or foundation
  • Matte yellow eyeshadow
  • Matte orange eyeshadow
  • Matte violet/purple eyeshadow
  • Matte blue eyeshadow
  • Matte pink/red eyeshadow
  • Matte medium green eyeshadow 
  • Shimmery champagne eyeshadow/highlighter
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Falsies(optional)
Step 1
After priming your eyelids with eyeshadow primer or foundation, apply the bright matte yellow shade into the inner one third of your eyelids.

Step 2
Next, pat the orange eyeshadow into the center of your eyelids and blend it slightly into the yellow we previously applied.

Step 3
Blend the pink/red eyeshadow into your crease and a little above it. I personally used pink instead of red because I felt like the red would collide with the already warm orange and yellow. But you can use either red or pink.

Step 4
Blend the purple/violet eyeshadow into the outer third of your eyes and into the pink and orange we previously applied.

Step 5
Blend the matte blue eyeshadow into the outer half of your lower lashline.

Step 6
Next blend the medium green eyeshadow into the inner half of your lower lashline. I chose medium green instead of light green because light would look too bright and take attention away from all our eyeshadow work on the eyelids.

Step 7
Pop in a champagne-y highlight shade into the inner corners of your eyes and just under the brow bone. 
Step 8
Do your winged liner! I just love what some bold winged eyeliner adds to looks like these! Next curl your lashes and apply mascara. You can finish the look here but I added some falsies for extra drama!
